Can't believe that I've only just found this thread!
I was a keen warhammer 40k painter back during 2nd and 3rd edition, bit didn't play. I stopped painting at age 17ish and only just got back into it a few months ago.
I gravitate towards Nurgle (Death Guard) and Orks but when I paint loyalist Space Marines they tend to be Marines Malevolent (everyone hates them!!!)
I have also started building real world AFVs. Current projects are a 1/35 Tamiya Chieftain, a 1/100 Maus, 1/72 Jagdpanzer and Cromwell.
My 10 year old daughter loves painting and building too.
It's a cheaper and safer midlife crisis than motorbikes.
If you need room for the vardo... there's room at my place .
Only joking. I know you wouldn't part with it. It's an amazing project though. Wish I had the room tools and skills set for such projects. I have so many on the go I keep loosing them and finding bits of it all about the house so it takes me years to finish some of them. I have too many ideas!
I have just bought about £40 worth of Scale 75 acrylic paints. I had the Arbuckles brown and fell in love with how it covers and dries super matte. I have the flesh set and a load of various other paints.
Also bought a Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought and the Know No Fear starter box. The Dark Imperium box is like hen's teeth since 9th ed was announced.
Also preordered the Fabius Bile model out later this month. I have never previously preordered ANYTHING...what's happening to me?!
