I thought I'd take a break from my usual posts just to tell you a bit about why I choose to post the things I do.
Obviously, the main aim of the blog is to put up photos of my army, and that's generally what I concentrate on. However, before I started on this blog, I always enjoyed reading about someone else's army and being able to find out how they've produced the models I'm looking at.
To this end, as well as pictures of my models, I also want to post about the ways in which I've gone about painting and modelling. I'm well aware that much of this will already have been discussed elsewhere (indeed, I've discovered many of these techniques from reading blogs and forums, and I do my best to acknowledge where I have learnt techniques from), and quite often by someone much more skilled than myself, but I want people to be able to browse through my army and, if they want to, immediately find out more information about the techniques I've used.
Aside from that, it also serves as a record for me, so if I haven't painted for a while I can easily look up the techniques or the paint scheme used!
Anyway, the upshot is that I'm hoping that even though you can often read about this stuff elsewhere, this blog provides a 'one stop shop' for the hobby - as far as the production of my army is concerned - and that people can learn something new from my articles. To that end, if there is a technique, conversion, or anything else that you would like to find out more about, please ask me and I'll do my best to give you an answer!
And just so this post isn't completely devoid of any army pictures, here's what's on my table at the moment:
Back to the usual stuff next time!
