Well, its been quite an absence hasn't it! As I mentioned in my last post (over a month ago!) the amount I am able to blog right now is pretty limited, but I do hope I haven't been forgotten.
I'm hoping that I should have some more to show you soon, including some newly painted Dark Angels units, as well as the start of both Epic and 40k Imperial Guard armies. I will be building the new armies in conjunction with both 73rd's Tale of More Painters (on his excellent blog The Unforgiven Angels), and Librarium Online's newest Tale of Painters group. More details on those soon...
Turning back to more current events, I have just got back from the first day of the Bristol Vanguard Spoils of War tournament, a friendly event with battles ranging from 750pts to 2000pts. As expected the Vanguard has turned out another expectionally good tournament, with superb terrain, missions and home made brownies to boot. With around 30 players in attendance its been great fun so far, and I can't wait to get back to the coal-face tomorrow.
Below are a few pictures of the first games from my camera phone. So far I have tallied up a loss, a draw and win; a distinctly average day!
I hope that has wetted your appetite, look forward to more from the Astronomcian soon!
