Statement of Purpose

Every venture should start with a statement of purpose. Mine is very simple.

I am going to begin a chronicle of my experiences playing the tabletop war game Warhammer 40,000 (Warhammer 40k, or just 40k for short.).

This is a rich and diverse game and hobby, full of a rich storyline, models that will take your breath away, and my painting skills, which will just make you choke in most cases. There are modeling tips, painting advice, in-game tactics, and everything in between that could be covered by this blog. I will, in time, cover all of what I know and continue to learn about all aspect of the hobby.
My scope is not just limited to my armies, either. I will post on other topics, other armies, 40k in General (as the title suggests), rumors I hear, and stuff I like or don't like about the hobby.
Thanks in advance for all who are to become my faithful readers and who are or will become my fellow hobbyists!

My Army –

My current army is the Daemonhunters. More specifically, I have an all Grey Knights army. This is heralded as one of the most difficult armies to play, and I have loved every minute proving that I can and will succeed with this challenging and difficult army.

I am trying to finish up the painting for this army, and I will post pictures as I make progress. Most of the modeling for it is done, but I still have a Land Raider Crusader to finish for it.

So, here are some pics (not the best camera) of my Grey Knights Grandmaster. I have some touch-up work to do (which is why I took the pictures), but you can see a first look at what he will be when he's done.

Ah-ha! My opponent has begun his blog!

Ok, well that was overly dramatic. I look forward to our next encounter. The last one was... interesting.

Hi, nice to find another Grey Knights player blogging. I’m starting out trying to do the same thing- running a pure GK army. Interesting so far also. I like your Grand Master conversion and the purity seals.

Hope to read more of your posts and see what works and doesn’t.
