New blog!

Hey folks, decided to start up a blog here to try and track all my hobby projects into one, easily readable place, which I may or may not forget to update as I go :P

Currently, I am working on getting my own Space Marine Army in shape, The White Scorpions, a blog of which can be found here, various other commission projects, and I am also one of the guys behind the Blood Ravens Charity Army Project, which is an endeavour set up to try and raise as much money as possible for ChildsPlay.

Basically, we are a bunch of gamers from the Relic News Forums who decided to get together for a painting competition with a difference, one where we would donate our finished models to try and make an army that we could sell or auction, with all of the proceeds going to the Child's Play Charity that the Forums support every year in the run up to Christmas.

This kinda snowballed and it turned out that we now have over 3300 points of Blood Ravens to build, paint and try to make money from.

Now if this sounds like you've heard something like this before, you have.  The inspiration for the project came from the Storm Wardens project that ran last year for Doctors Without Borders. A similar project is running this year with the Heroes of Armageddon project. A big thank you to those guys; you showed 40k isn't just about geeky guys with toy soldiers. It's about big hearted geeky guys with toy soldiers.

I have pledged to buy and/or paint a Space Marine Assault Jump Pack Chaplain, a 10 Man Assault Squad, a Land Raider Crusader, and a Whirlwind, which are all in various stages of completion, and will be progressed on here, of course.

So, stay tuned, will have some updates for you very soon!
