Well, this will be interesting...

So.  The first blog post.  How to proceed I wonder?
     Some kind of introduction would be in order I suppose.  I begin this blog mostly on a whim, having recently graduated from University and joined the growing ranks of The Unemployed, I have a lot of time on my hands.  Sure, time that probably would be better spent job-hunting, but I'll get to that when I get to that.  This will mainly be a Wargaming blog, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the hobby... go wiki it.  Shoo.  Rudeness aside, I began my hobby years in an environment with very little wargaming opponents within reach, so it should be stated now, that I indulge in this hobby first and foremost to paint.  I truly enjoy painting some of the fantastic models that are available, from all kinds of genres.  Second reasons for the hobby is the background aspects.  This is pretty much where I'll need to point out the games systems I'm interested in at the moment, in order of how interesting I think their fictional backgrounds are (and which I own models for): Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game, Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Warhammer 40k, Infinity the Game, Dystopian Wars and Warmachine.  Only thirdly I'm in it for the gaming.  Which is lucky, because now I'm back home and without a decent wargaming circuit.  So... this will probably a painting blog more than anything else.  Some Dark Elves (clearly), Marines, Eldar, Orks, Empire, Chaos Marines and such as well as some LotR Dwarves, Gondorians, Orcs and a few other plonkers.  My collection's truly all over the place, the only half-coherent army I possess are my beloved Dark Elves.

       So.... that's a bit about me I suppose.  I'll try and keep some kind of consistent update schedule, which should in turn motivate me to get through the mound of unpainted models I have.  It's not like I have anything better to do, but every time I pass the lounge, my PS3 calls out to me in a thin reedy voice;  "Come, come!  There's only five months before Skyrim is released!  If you don't finish Oblivion by then, it will be too late!  Either that my laptop begging me to finish watching the Seven Samurai.  Ah well.  I've almost finished painting a Durin model I bought a while ago for my Khazad-Dum army, he'll probably be my first upload.  If not,  I'll show you some existing pictures of other models. Muahahahahaaaa.

    I myself have only just started. I was into fantasy and played dark elves until the new edition randomness upset me. Now I have succumbed to the lure of 40k and enjoying it.

    nice painting skills!
