I haven't posted an entry on here for a while, and I must counteract that a bit.
The Lamenters army is proceeding at pace, and I have most of the army painted now. Its currently standing at 1400pts, so only 600pts to go and with only three units left to paint I can see the 2000pt finish line. So onto some pictures
This is the unit I painted this month, a ten man assualt squad.
and when this unit is pictured with the rest of the army, my army currently looks like this
The limit for this competition is 2000pts as I have said, but I did a little bit of a stock take of my current amount of models and I do have enough models to reach about 3000pts. I also have my eye on the upcoming 5th edition 40k box set which gives a huge amount of mini's for a reasonable price, both marines and orks. So I will pick that up in the future.
Now onto the next Lamenters unit which I think is going to be the second devastator squad, and I must also continue to paint my madpuppet gobbo for the swap with Andre.
Thats it for the moment, I'll hopefully post again soon.

This is the leader of my Lamenter Space Marine Army I am painting up at the moment. I am currently taking part in a competition on LO to paint a 2000pt army in 10 months. This is the third month of the competition and things are coming along nicely. I'm happy enough with how he turned out but with all deadlines he had to be rushed a bit to be finished as I don't have time over the next couple of days to finish him of fully. I think he is a perfectly good tabletop standard and have just given him a coat of Testors dull coate. For the moment thats it! I'm moving onto a squad of Devastators for next month as well as working on some Tomb King skellies for the WoM competition, a human bloodbowl team member and an Ork Warboss.
All this and having to start to focus on the writing of a transfer! Am I mad or what? Answers on a postcard please.

So here I am, internets!
Its not my first blog but this is something that I will hopefully continue for the foreseeable future. My life my not be hugely interesting, and for people who may stumble across this little part of the Internet it may not hold a lot of value. I can see in a couple of years (if I continue that long!) that it may be interesting for me to come back here and have a look at what I was thinking and feeling at the time of writing.
Now, its quite late at night and I don't want to stay up to late as I'm going to Limerick tomorrow for an exhibition my brother is taking part in. It's his first ever public showing of his art and we are all really excited. I hope it goes well, no doubt I will update this blog with the story at a future date and hopefully with pictures!
So finally Vincent, what do you hope to achieve and do with this blog? To maybe write down interesting stories and thoughts that happen or occur to me. Keep a diary of video games I've been playing with maybe a review post of each one I've finished. But mainly I think (and the name of the blog might give this away) is to post the work I am doing on whatever miniature I might be painting or working on at the time, along with thoughts, paint schemes, techniques and anything else that comes to mind.
Mind you I hope to link this site to other websites that I frequent to maybe generate some traffic through this places dusty halls. But even if that does not happen I think as a resource for me to refer back to, it will hopefully serve a purpose.
Right that's it for now, the first blog post over and done with!
