    Bananabots & Blueberries; Necrons, Tau and more

    By way of a brief introduction, I've been collecting and playing 40K since 2ED. I've collected most armies over the years but have now settled on what I hope to be my 'final obsession'. I've always been a 'hobbiest' at heart and enjoy the process of painting, building and collecting armies and terrain as much as playing the game.

    This project log will chronicle the progress of my two main armies; Necrons and Tau (Bananabots & Blueberries) and while I can't promise my collection of images will provide you with your '5-a-day', I hope you will enjoy an insight into my little corner of our great hobby.

    Along the way, I might add a smattering of images from my other armies, or images of my brothers armies (Blood Angels, Knights and Eldar) along with terrain projects and maybe some battle report images if I really get this plog going.

    Without further adieu... here is the first image (This is more of a test for me to see if I can work out how to upload photos.)

    Welcome Rabbitden,

    Post at your own pace.

    Although posting updates and having folks comment always seems to help you get more models painted.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the welcome and the comments guys. I've got plenty more on the painting table to show yet.

    One quick question. I've worked out how to add my images as an attachment via the gallery here on Warseer but how do I embed the images into the body of the post? I figure it's best to embed the images as then the viewer doesn't need to use 'extra clicks' to view a larger image. Also, now that Photobucket is no longer an option, can anyone recommend a free alternative?

    Many thanks for your help on this.

    Rabbitden,

    Many of us use Imgur, but like Photobucket it does not want to be a free hosting service, so use at your own risk.

    Photobucket has been allowing free hosting again, but you must show their logo on your images in the lower left corner.



    I just took your image from the WarSeer folder and grabbed the Properties and then surrounded it with "img" tags. That should show off your work and reduce the number of clicks.

    Cheers,

    CB

    Now that I have a few units painted up, I thought it was about time I started devising a plan. I don't want to be painting random units - I need something a bit more structured so I can get these little robots of mine onto the table.

    I'm not into competitive gaming, and prefer to bring a mixture of units onto the tabletop. That's not to say, I don't enjoy the odd win now and then, but on the other hand I don't want to be spamming units because 'The Internet says they're good' (in this edition)!

    I plan on painting up 2 detachments to begin with and see where that takes me. Hopefully i'll be able to stick to this list.

    Another update chaps. What self respecting Necron force would go to battle without someone to take care of them? Quite a simple kitbash that will be a great stand in until I get round to purchasing the fancy new plastic model or one of the named characters.

    Let me introduce you to 'Kry'ten' - Ahh, smug mode.

    Very nice Rabbitden.

    The contrast between the yellow and the black/grey is quite effective.

    what did you use to put up the pics, imgur, a mobile device?

    Rabbitden,

    It looks like you have removed some of the photos in your WarSeer album...or moved the album. You have a recently modified album here: http://www.warseer.com/forums/album.php?albumid=1129

    Sincerely,
