If you think running a kingdom is hard work, building on is even tougher. What makes it worse is when the neighbouring kings and Queens are trying to steal the prime real estate before you do.
Last Saturday the girls were out of the house for the afternoon. This meant Ronin and I had some time to kill. I had planned to put up some shelving in my study (I have games on my chair and floor!) but instead I decided to crack open the First Strike Warhammer 40K starter box and see if Ronin would like it.
Here’s the next episode in my saga of Painting DOOM, the Possessed Marines. These were humans that were changed by the powers they let loose while mining on Mars. They are nasty little buggers who were fused with their armour and weapons. Kind of melting into a single unit.
I’m getting back into the game and it feels good! Not that I’ve not been playing games, but I’ve not been playing as much or as often as I usually do. I did not realise that I was “missing” a part of my hobby until this weekend. Studies for the first 6 months of the year then being extremely ill has had me out of sorts but this weekend I started getting out again. I took Ronin along to a Blood bowl tournament that I managed to organise at Battle Wizards.
I’m busy painting the models from DOOM the Board game and I thought “why not write up how I’m going through the process”. Now; I’ve already painted the Imps and I’ve started with the Marines so I don’t remember exactly which colours were used. I’ll do my best to describe the colours that I have used in these guides. For the future guides (the rest of the models) I’ll make notes so that you can have a better idea of what I’ve done.
