2017: A Retrospective

I’ve just looked at the site and I’ve posted exactly one blog this year which I’ll admit isn’t exactly record breaking. I’ve been busy outside of my hobbies with work, moving house and life in general throwing some unexpected swerve balls that diminished any insensitive I’ve had to write. Hopefully, 2018 will be better and I’ll get my writing mojo back.

Although I haven’t blogged in any meaningful way this year I have managed to paint a few models up which I thought I’d share some examples of in this post.

The start of the year was taken up with painting the Silvertower models.

After painting up my Silvertower models I delved into the universe of 40k and paint up some Ultramarines. I’d picked up some Primaris Marines on eBay for a couple of pounds and thought I’d paint them up as smurfs as all the GW box art features them and I’ve never painted any.

Next on the list was to finish off a Carmine Dragon that I’ve had knocking around for a few years. There wasn’t a lot to do on this except for the horn work and the base.

At this point in the year I picked up two Dark Imperium and a Know No Fear box sets which has meant that for the latter part of the year I’ve been alternating between painting the Astartes up as Imperial Fist and painting the Death Guard.

My plans for 2018 are to keep working away on the Imperial Fists and Death Guard and resist the urge to deviate into other armies. Hopefully, this will happen and I’ll also be able to write more than one blog in 2018!
