Thought I would go ahead and put my own WIP materials up here for a little friendly "whipping" to get some projects done! I'm really excited to have a "battle buddy" in Warrior who's own frothy devotion spurs mine. A quick shot (for those who are curious) of me, and my Warhammer shelf - lots of 40k and fantasy goodness and a few years' worth of White Dwarf. Note there are no spues here - I have a whole closet full of that stuff >.> I have a ton of stuff also out in the shed - but for some reason (heat?) all my cheap-ass book shelves collapsed and it looks like an earthquake destroyed the place - only the brave dare to tread now, but that's a whole other project ...
Here's some of that boring background fluff that you sometimes have to deal with.
Bought my first figures in 1987, not knowing what-all WHFB was all about. Third Edition was on the shelf (which I still have) as well as Rogue Trader 40K (ditto).
I didn't really start playing GW until 92 when I saw a game of Blood Bowl being played. I wanted to play too, so bought myself a team and went to town. Next week was WHFB games and I've been hooked since. When I was stationed at Fort Hood, I had the delight to work and play at John's Slaughter House, and we played a lot of games there. Since I moved from Texas I've run into opportunities to play, but never really messed around much until last year when I kind of got Warrior addicted. So, now we're on a rush to get painted armies on the deck!
As you go through the pix you'll see that I use a lot of GW materials (paints, paint station, etc.) I'm very comfortable with these products, but the only one I'm a fanatic about is the Chaos Black primer. Yes, I can use Krylon for about 1/10th the cost, but I don't care. This primer is my absolute, all-time favorite for even coat, satin-like finish, solid covering, and bondability to the models. I won't use anything but Chaos Black. Ever. Ever ever.
