Near Future Projects
As I find myself being drawn further and further into the 40k universe (something, thankfully, my understanding wife is happy to let me entertain myself with) I am beginning to slowly turn my thoughts towards creating a few terrain pieces of my own.
To break me into this new realm of the gaming world I got hold of a copy of How to Make Wargames Terrain to read up on and give me some ideas. I also bought a few of the GW kits as seen here before Christmas 2011. Now I have finally started on building them.

Once I have some of my Slaaneshi guys painted and my Space Wolves finished off I will begin painting up this piece. In the meantime I will be keeping my eyes open and thoughts ticking over on what can be achieved with the remaining two and a bit boxes I have left.
