Ladies and Gentlemen....

Welcome to the disclaimer...
Thats right, the disclaimer...
This British, tea drinking institution...
Known as parental discretion...
Will cleanse any sense of innuendo or sarcasm...
From the words that might actually make you think...
And will also insult your intelligence at the same time...
So protect your family...
This Blog contains explicit depictions...
Of things which are real...
These real things are commonly known as life...
So, if it sounds sarcastic, don't take it seriously...
If it sounds dangerous...
Do not try this at home or at all...
And if it offends you, just don't read it....


Think that about covers it...

Bonus prize for the one who gets where thats from, lol.


Anyway, my name is Chris, you might remember me from past blogs such as 'How to *fail* at painting an Ultramarine Combat Patrol in 12 hours' and... well, thats it actually, unless you count the continuing Heresy Era Emperors Children army I'm doing on the pre heresy forums. But I got Fulgrim today, so that'll get a shot in the arm pretty quickly.

So, this is the new project, so in customary style...


Army - Thousand Sons
Points Value - 1500 Points
Deadline - 7th July
Time til Deadline - 14 days
Reason for Deadline - GW Newport 40k Three Feathers Tournement
- *Also know as Chris hasnt got a finished army ATM*


So there you go, this is the first post of the start of something beautiful... and then I build and slap paint all over them... yarr

Are we sitting comfortably?
Then I shall begin...

Means I have a mighty 25 models to paint, none of which are fully built yet, so it does give me time to ammend the list alittle if people suggest good changes.

Id like to see this..Ive tried speed painting recently and I must say I found it most disconcerting. We need performance enhancing drugs for this....

Ok, update time -

Tickets sold out for the tournement, nevertheless... I'm first on the reserve list for it, shoudl someone drop out, but as they say, I've started, so i'll finish...

So, last night, having finally gone to bed just after 3am, *superman returns, good film, but he's no Christopher Reeve* I manged to get 18 thousand Sons built for painting - Legs, torso and head, which means I can do the arms seperate, and get into all the bits normally obscured by the arms braced across the chest.

The budgie of change is also in the slow process of being built, Its finding and building a suitable deamon prince thats the thing thats making me think.

This is actually a new style of painting for me, for the last 15 years I've pretty much always fully built models before painting, so hopefully this'll bump them up a notch.

Camera still hasn't appeared unfortunatly, but i'll have another look now to put up a pic of the test mini, and the various other pics needed to make it an interesting blog.

At the moment i'm spraying up the Tsons, and then I can start on the 'gold' on them.
