My take on what the Legion has bean up to the last fifty seven years is they have had a policy of isolationism (apart from the third War of Armageddon, Revenge!!!!) so as to build back up the strength of Legion. This incudes all classes of titans. As i am sure you can imagine it takes a lot of material and time to build a titan The knight households and Skitarii have been doing most of the fighting in defence of the Forge world systems.
More Titans to follow but seeing how long it took me to finish this one, i would not hold my breath.

This is the latest addition to Ragnar Blackmane's Great Company. I did quite a few little conversions (pun intended) on them, which i think really adds to the overall effect of the unit. I have really enjoyed doing this unit, i had done about 80% of it before my Son was born, so it is nice to have found the time to finish it off.
On the Wolf Guard i chopped the left arm off and repositioned it, then i used a piece of metal flash for the power sword.
On each Sergeant i put a small bit of green stuff on top of there head and made it look like wild crazy hair. I wanted to try something a bit different so i gave one a lightning/wolf claw, not as easy as i thought it would be let me tell ya.
I finished up by adding some more green stuff to the top of three troopers so as to look like a ponytail/talisman.

A big blogging welcome to the world to my son Marcus, he was born on the 15th of march. His Mom and I are over the moon. We are so grateful that he is a happy and healthy baby. I have only just found the time to put this quick post out. As you can imagine i will not be posting that regularly (like i did anyway) But i will try to get some Epic stuff out.
I am really looking forward to doing all the cool boy stuff with him. I am SO excited to introduce him to the wonderful world of wargaming, Sci fi and all things geeky. Or if he does not like that stuff that is cool too. Welcome to my life, you are Fantastic, and i love you loads.

This post has absolutely nothing to do with wargaming, but it does have to do with painting. Just not the wargaming kind. I am excitingly expecting my first child on the 11th of March, so as any good would be dad, i wanted to get the baby room ready as soon as possible for when he arrives.
At first the plan was to just paint the room and be done with it, but then i had the idea jump into my head what if i painted a mural. So off to the Internet i went, after a bit of a search my wife and i had deciding on a jungle theme, i then set about finding some different ideas for the walls.
We wanted to keeping the original wall colors(orange & green). So i needed a way to incorporate them into the whole scheme. So the plan was to have a large tree in the center of the orange wall with one branch stretching to the green wall. So off to the Home Depot(B&Q) to buy some paint i went.
On the other orange wall i decided on vines coming down from the ceiling with a cute monkey as the centerpiece. Finally on the last green wall, another monkey just above were the change table will be.
I am really happy how it all turned out and can't wait to meet him. I know i will have very little time to myself soon, let alone time to sit down and paint. So i am getting as much undercoating and Epic painting in as i can.
Wish me luck.

The SpaceMarine game is great fun to play, i am really enjoying the multiplayer games, But now it is even better.
Dreadnought Assault takes it to a whole new level. You do have to pay for the premium add-on pack, but i think it is well worth it. let's be honest with ourselves, how many of you have not thought about stomping around as a Dreadnought.
What the pack does is it adds a new multiplayer mode called Dreadnought Assault where both teams battle to capture a central location on the map and the winners spawn a player controlling a Dreadnought. The Dreadnought is armed with an Assault Cannon / Auto Cannon, a Meltagun and a Power Fist / Power Claw and must capture points across the map to score points for their team. Once the Dreadnought is destroyed a new spawn point will appear. I can't tell you how much fun it is to ether play as a dreadnought or attach it! If you have the game i highly recommend you get the add on.
There is a downside, it is having a negative effect on my painting but i am enjoying it so much, i don't care.
Hope to see you online, my PS3 sigh in is damobeepbeep.

I have just discovered this thanks to someone putting it on their blog(thank you) and i Have to say how Impressive it is. I feel the need to share with everyone because it is that Fraking Awesome! you will not be disappointed. If you liked the CGI in the Ultramarines movie then you will fill your pants over this.
The most amazing part is that it has been done by such a small group of fans in there spare time. I Urge all Warhammer 40,000 fans to watch this.
Like some others have said the voice overs need a bit of work but apart from that is Rocks. The icing on the cake is that Gamesworkshop know about it and like it! so hopefully we wont have another Damnatus incident.
So take a look at the YouTube videos and if you want to subscribe to them the more support the better, i have also subscribed to the Facebook page just because i think it deserves the attention.
