I had such a great hobby weekend.
Managing to paint and build a bunch, and introducing my nearly seven year old son to playing Warhammer 40k. He has been asking for years and now was the perfect time. It was an absolute blast to witness his sheer excitement and joy and I had missed playing the game badly too. We agreed to play again next weekend.
The combination of recently working on models made out of random stuff and other manufacturers models and the gaming brought back many magical memories from when I first started. As 12 year old. Many many years ago. When WD would still show the odd custom made model with many parts or the entire thing made with creativity that respected no IP.
Everyone’s come along way and GWs having an incredible year. I just want to mention and cherish some of that original energy.
And with the Curse of the Alabaster I’ve been doing it. Not worrying about where the parts come as long as they fuse together into some gripping Warhammer 40000 imagery. Having to only do a war and after the Pilgrym mountain to climb has been such a joy. So I was always going to get a little carried away.
Here are a few quick images from the past few days. In the spirit of quick flashes, posting this from an iOS app and curious to see how it works out.
First the Rogue Trading Tractor, a Family Heirloom from a bygone era of technological brilliance.
