They won't be back....

Friends, Robots, undead killing machines, I have sad news. I have sold off my entire 18,000 point Necron army on the dawn of their new Codex being relesed, much to the horror of my friends. Having seen the awesome new Codex I've gotta say I really don't regret it. I've been playing only Necrons for so long, and I just got really bored of them. I wanted an army I could breathe much more life into, and give some real character to. In it's place I've started a Soviet themed Imperial Guard army, something I've always wanted to do.

I'm going to keep this blog open and start updating with more varied Miniature Wargames posts, and will put up pictures of my new Imperial Guard army as soon as I replace my broken camera. I've also been busy with a bunch of new scenery projects so I'll start posting updates of those too, and maybe some free foamcore templates....

My new Imperial Guard army is heavy on infantry and artillery at the moment, with a Soviet theme as I mentioned before. I hope to expand it out with an Airborne/Paratrooper group, an Armoured group and a larger Infantry group so I can mix and match depending on how I fancy playing.

Do not mourn my army's passing my metal clad friends, for they have gone to a good home. The vast majority of the army (including most of my Super-heavy scratchbuilds and Monoliths) went to a friend of mine so I will no doubt now be on the recieving end of green Gauss Flayer doom. The other bits shipped off to various people in various countries, so my army is officially global :-) The number is legion, their name is death.

Well guys and girls it's been a couple of weeks since my last update and I've been on a finishing spree seeing as my wonderful girlfriend is moving in with me this Thursday. I'm just going to post a great mass of photos below here from some games I've been playing on the city board. Hope you like it!

Ruined Imperial City - Work in progress 5

General status update for all the buildings I've been working on, and how they look together. Just have the Adeptus Mechanicus temple to paint and then I'll think about building some more.

Ruined Imperial City - Work in progress 4

I broke my camera whilst stumbling around Camden after drinking far too much cider, so I'm having to use a much older digicam and the camera on my mobile for photos. Not ideal but it doesn the job. Here is the largest of the ruins I've made so far with and undercoat of black and the first coat of dark grey .There were recesses on the model which still had wet black paint and ink so in some places it's mixed into the grey giving it a more varied texture, which is quite a nice effect. There's a half painted Necron Immortal in the foreground for scale. As always, click on the photos for a larger image.

Uh-oh

Bad time to break my camera. Hope my temporary camera is up to the job.

Ruined Imperial City - Work in progress 3

First building painted. Mixture of black poster paint, PVA glue and water for the basecoat, then a heavy drybrush of Codex Grey followed by decreasingly heavy drybrushing of Fortress Grey, Bleached Bone and then Skull White. I like how this one has come out, can't wait to move on to some of the more complex ones and see how they finish.
