What is Warhammer 40,000?

There is no time for peace. No forgiveness. No respite. There is only war.

The galaxy writhes in the mailed fist of all-consuming conflict. The Imperium of Mankind teeters on the brink of annihilation, beset upon all sides by heretic warlords, daemon-summoning witches and rapacious alien empires. In every star system and upon every planet, fierce battle rages as loyalists, heretics and aliens tear reality itself apart in their war for dominance. Every day the flames rise higher.

This is a more terrible era than ever before, and there is no peace amongst the stars…

Space Marine Colour Schemes

Some time ago, I spent a considerable amount of time playing with impact. For those who don’t know Impact allows you to digitally paint models to test colour schemes for projects.

As such I ended up recreating and creating tonnes of Space Marine liveries for both cannon chapters and non-cannon chapters. This process eventually allowed me to create my own home brew Space Marine Chapter the Void Dragons.

But, I thought rather than deleting all that hard work or just leaving it on Pinterest where it won’t be used, why not share them with you. That way, you can view the colour schemes I’ve already made and pick one for your own Chapter should you wish….. Enjoy!

Random Musing – Hobby Slumps!

The great thing about the Hobby is that there are loads of ways to enjoy it and many people enjoy multiple aspects. I certainly enjoy painting, because it is time away from screens and at the end of it I have something to show for it… and sometimes I can even display it!

However after a ‘few’ tournaments at the tail end of 2021 (10 tournaments and 43 games…!) I found the break over Christmas and getting ready for a cousin’s wedding broke my run, and I got into a temporary Hobby Slump.

So, how to get out of it… for me this is do something different – and don’t sweat it!

So I read a few short stories – which you may see reviews of here later in the year – and yesterday had a weekly hobby catch-up with friends on Zoom. This is a great way to remind myself why I love the Hobby… and so I got into my collection and picked something different to assemble and paint.


Lots of lovely stuff for 40k and Kill Team

I was fortunate to get this for Christmas, and so I cut it off sprue during the Hobby catch-up on Zoom last night, and spent this afternoon gluing it together. Hopefully the weather will allow me to spray soon.

I really like Terrain as a pallet cleanser or to kick-start painting or collecting. It’s because it doesn’t need to be perfect, I have a reasonably quick method and I can sort of go into automatic pilot until I feel like doing something else.

Do you ever get into a Hobby Slump? How do you get out of it?

I’ll keep you up to date with my progress on this set on Woehammer.
