Let's begin with the Deathstrike

I'm writing this just a couple of days after 'Workshop put up pics of their brand spanking new Deathstrike Missile.

I'll admit it. It's nice... but not to the point I wanna replace this one I made earlier:



I made this little fella out of a Chimera kit and an SA-II rocket kit I picked up for SGD $29.90:


I think it turned out ok... I shortened the overall length of the missile and made the fins less pointy and shorter.

Adding the missile mount to the Chimera added some bulk to the vehicle, making the huge missile look a little less silly, in my opinion.

I've yet to add the tank markings for my Guard regiment (the Hyperion 109th)... as well as a hefty chunk of weathering. Planning to do all that once the rest of the armour for the army is done.

Hope ya'll like it.

The first post

Hi all, welcome to my blog.

I'll be frank.

This is less a blog and more an online repository of all the wargames miniatures I've done over my 18 years of hobby (and counting).

One reason for this blog stems from the fact that, as Games Workshop reworked and re-released many armies, many of my earlier models became outmoded for the current edition of the rules.

These poor abandoned models got pushed to the deepest recesses of my shelves, in favour of models that I could use in games.

Now many of these models I do like a lot, since I have a habit of converting nearly everything for one reason or another.

This blog will give them their day in the sun again.

The other reason? I er... have too much s**t and I need the motivation to get it all done.
