Men of Harlech!

With my recent jumping back into painting I finished the second unit of Zulu (that has sat half painted for around a year) and put together and painted my first unit of Brits. All are from the excellent plastic range from Warlord Games/Empress Miniatures. The Zulu are painted as the unmarried Udududu regiment (I think, some of my online sources from when I started them no longer exist!). The Brits are of course painted as the 24th.

Sci-Fi Storage Tank

A quick post for a piece of scenery I made last year. It's a rusted old storage tank...thing. It was a scratch build from some plastic packaging, a couple dead AA batteries and some stuff from the bitz box. 30mm Warhammer 40,000 minis and 15mm ganger shown for scale.

Where have I been?

The post-apoc gangers was my first post in some months. Those pictures were actually taken back in the summer! I apologize for my absence. Over these last 6 or so months I completed my Bachelors Degree in History. It was a lot of work (and debt!) but I am proud that I made it through. If nothing else, it was worth it for the sense of accomplishment I feel and how much I grew as a person over those nearly 5 years. Though in the last 6 months my interest in things relating to wargaming waned. Development of my sci-fi rules, SNAFU, ground to an absolute halt. It's not the firs time this has happened, and probably won't be the last.

I've been on the job hunt since the end of December, and have had no luck. Another interview this week. Here's hoping! Being unemployed does mean a lot of free time however. So I started painting again last night simply out of boredom (a unit of Zulu that has been half finished for almost a year now, ditto a squad of Dark Angels). Getting back to painting has been both enjoyable and has got me starting to feel interested in wargaming again. It's a good feeling. This hobby has been with me since I was 8 years old, and I'm sure I will always have some interest in it, even if that interest waxes and wanes throughout the years.

There are a number of things I want to post in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled.

Thank you for reading.

15mm Post-Apoc Gangers

Some pics of my 15mm post-apoc stuff. Most of the minis are made by Khurasan, with a few from The pictures were originally done for a school-related project (a class on Apocalyptic Films). I got an A too!
