Update time

Hi all,

Apologies for the lack of updates recently. Real life is taking over slowly again so my painting time has become limited. But that doesn't mean I haven't got anything done. I have some commissions nearing completion and ready to be shipped out and i have been busy working on my HORDES Circle of Orboros army. Still no painted Wold Guardian I'm afraid but I have managed to finish a unit of Wold Stalkers and a unit of Shifting Stones, I will get pictures up when i have access to the camera. Anyone who knows me will understand my sense of accomplishment with these units as I very rarely play with full painted armies.

In terms of other personal projects I've been getting really excited for the HORDES Minion Gatormen army ( The Blindwater Congregation) Lots of very cool minis and I have already made a start on a croak hunter and Bloody Barnabas. Again, pics will appear when the camera does.

Something else that has caught my eye is a new game from Spartan Games called 'Dystopian Wars'. Its a fleet based game set in the Victorian Sci - fi genre. I was drawn in by the awesome minis and I'm looking forward to picking up the rule book and a starter set when they are released in December. I'm liking the Britannia force and here's a pic of them from the Spartan Games website:

Unfortunately I am ending with some sad news. A friend of mine who I have known for several years through work and war gaming was killed in a car accident last week. Words cannot express how shocked I was as we were only talking a few hours before the accident. It's times like this that you realise how fragile life is and how you should cherish every moment. My thoughts go out to his wife and children and all those that knew him. Goodbye Stig, keep rolling dice wherever you are.
