After collecting the army, and playing truly epic, or as one would call it these days, Apocalyptic si\ed battles which would last over the course of a weekend I left the hobby and sold my army around 1997 when I needed to increase my 'Beer Fund'.
Fast forward to January 2013 and my interest in video gaming (which had been all consuming since I left the hobby 15 years previously) was waning. After hearing that a close friend was getting back in to the hobby I figured I would dip my toe back in.
12 months later I can happily report that I am well and truly hooked, and probably to a greater degree than the first time I used to get my little soldiers out as a teenager. My main problem though has been the progress of my painting. I have built up a 3000 point (ish) Space Marine and Grey Knight army. This is a home brew Chapter built on fluff relating to the Light Knights Gaming Community which I founded and led until 6 months ago. Having gone though a lot of changes in my personal life and spending a lot of time at work, I have been unable to churn out the units at a speed which i would like. I want this blog to a provide an extra motivating factor to get units painted, to also log the development of this army (and any future ones!) and to hopefully depict the improvements I make in my technique and ability.
So, on with the show
