A Second new addition to my army: Librarian on Bike

I know "Bike" is a stretch but I love the Games Workshop Horses.
"Thoth"is my take on a Librarian on bike, a conversion that sat half finished for nearly a year before I got back to him. Thankfully the often vaunted Dark Angels provide a superior Librarian for a significant reduction in points costs.
 Keeping with the Egyptian theme of the army I wanted a weapon flexible enough to count as either a force axe or sword depending on the needs of the list.

Colonial This weekend! A New Addition to the army

I said I would never use Devastators....
But with the addition of Allies, and most importantly Dark Angels breathing new life into my bike army I found a excuse to build some new models and add some overdue AP2 love to my force.
Whole Squad:

Battle Report from BWG First Blood 2013 - 1850 40K Tournament Feb. 9th

3rd Annual BWG First Blood - 1850 24 man RTT
I was of really looking forward to this event, not just because I have really been ignoring my 40k and needed an excuse to play, but also because it's an event run by friends. Beltway Gamers, my local Club runs events out of a couple different locations, but our real "home" is Dreamwizards.
Up for grabs? Well the pot from the entry and also a ticket to The Colonial provided by MasterMoulder. Definitely a good motivator!

Goodbye feeBay, hello BigCartel!!!!

eBay? Not if I can help it....

So many of us have used eBay at least once or twice over the last 10 years... Heck allot of us have used eBay as a primary source of discount or hard to find hobby related purchases..
Those who sell however know the "darker" side, the fee structure has increased, becoming less supportive of the casual eBayer and more focused on large scale business.. Their customer service is terrible and actually has a habit of defaulting to favor the buyer regardless of the actual facts of the case, so I am slow trying to ween sales away from eBay to my new site on BigCartel.
"Big Cartel provides you with your own independent store to sell your stuff online."
It's a friendly small business focused enterprise focused mainly on arts, crafts and hobby goodies and to try and lure those repeat customers over I am offering 10% to your first several orders using the code "SEEYOUEBAY123"
Of course it would help if I included a link to the store!
More Hobby posts soon, I promise!

New Year & a new base line! Crystal Wastes

In the effort to keep current and post more often here is my second post of the new year!
This is officially our 3rd line for 40k, just like our other two lines these are crafted with a emphasis on the ability to use the base multiple times in a army and each miniature will look different due to the three dimensional aspect of the bases.

Released today! Codex: Dark Angels!

So I know it's been MONTHS since I last posted, and excuses are a dime a dozen, but there is nothing like a new Codex focusing on bikes to rekindle interest regardless of what's going on in the background...


First blush:
Games Workshop continues with the "Buy something new"... decreasing the cost on the models infrequently seen in DA armies, reasonable prices on some of the new toys.. This also means certain units got more expensive...
Leadership is base 8 on almost everything, requiring a 10 point upgrade for a Veteran Sergeant.
