First of all, if anyone hasn't noticed yet, the 25mm Warrior is running a caption contest to win some Death Korps. Check it out!

I've also read a great post at 40K Origins on "Why codexes should be free". It makes some great points and is worth thinking about.

I've been doing some painting over the last week, despite my lack of posts, but I just can't seem to finish even one model before I find myself starting the next. Here's whats on my painting table right now:

After reading Battle for the Abyss, I've got an urge to put together a small pre-heresy army of World Eaters, Space Wolves and Ultramarines, so you may see them posted one day - the Ultramarine in the picture is the test model.

As soon as any of those models are finished, more posts will ensue!

Dawn of War 2 - New Maps in next Patch!

I was meaning to post my Blood Angels captains this week, along with some Traitor Guard, but unfortunately my cameraphone broke last night - there'll be no posts for a few days, till I get a new one.

In the meantime, here's some exciting news for anyone who plays Dawn of War 2 online! Next week the newest patch will be released, which will include the new 2vs2 ranked game type, and two all-new maps for 2vs2.

Screenshots stolen from Relic

The maps are both desert maps, and look pretty damn good, I can't wait to get online on these maps. Maybe my Space Marine level will finally increase above 12.

When I get a working camera, there will be new painted models posted, including some Chaos Guardsmen and Marines I have in my bits box.

Dawn of War 2 - Update News

For fellow Dawn of War 2 fans, this link might be useful. It's constantly updated with the latest tit-bits of news that the Relic developers let slip, and I check it quite often.

Coming early this month is a new patch which adds a ranked 2vs2 mode, with 2 new maps, and fixes for several bugs. I've been hoping for a 2vs2 mode for a while, and to hear it confirmed is great.

Blood Angels Chaplain Grimmauld - Finished!

 I've been doing some work on my Blood Angels recently, and I never seem to finish a model, always puttting one squad closer to being finished then moving to another squad because I get bored. Rather than keep on painting like that, I forced myself to finish my Chaplain, which is a model I field in every game I use my Blood Angels. I've been working on this model on and off for nearly 2 years, which was getting frankly ridiculous.

The picture to the left is the model a few days ago, with a few details yet to go, and the pictures below are of the model finished, but in poorer lighting conditions! I'm quite pleased with the paint-job I've pulled off, the only parts I'm disapointed with are the belt buckle, the base and the handle of his Crozius. I'll be going back to change those bits eventualy.

... and no quickshade involved at all, madness! 

With this fellow painted I'm one step closer towards a fully painted army - I don't think I'll get there soon though! At the moment I'm working on a second tactical squad, 2 Captains, a Librarian, a Whirlwind and a Dreadnought, I'll post those as I complete them.
