I have the last two years collected alot of 40k stuff from the 90s. Such good memories from when I was a kid. I collected most Imperial guard and eldar stuff. Also laid my hands on two starter sets, both 40k and fantasy. So far I finished valhallans and a squad of both guardians and imperial storm troopers. Old and goofy but really fun to work on. Also laid my hand on a huge cardboard fire base for 40k. Only assembled it once but it looked lovely. Wish I had the time to get more old 40k stuff done but there is so much stuff to do and stuff coming out all the time. 

What have I've been up to? A lot frankly. Kitchen renovations, kids and all that stuff but I have had time to do some hobbywork. I still work on my grenadier set. Lack quite alot of hobby material right now so some project are on hold and I've started new ones so there is quite alot going on. I made a bunker this weekend. Actually three but only one is complete. It's inspired from the game Stalingrad where there is bunkers like this one. Nice game too btw. I got a soft spot for wood and earth fortifications. Also working on some spare soviets. Never planned on assembling and paint them but it is a nice set so I gave them some colours and will recieve another 48 around christmas time. Both longing and dreading for their arrival. They are really fun to paint but a hell to assemble.

My ww2 projects. Everythimg here is finished as I write. Long time since I took the shot. Everything turned out rather nice.

Been a while since I wrote something but life came between but now I'm hopefully back. I've been doing alot 40k lately. Both terrain and figures. Customized alot of Chaos cultist which I have begun painting. I have also begun alot of other old school Imperials and plan to add more as I go.

Something completely different on my blog. Painted up 40 chaos cultists. Really enjoyable to paint and go wild on as you really can't do on historic minis and I could make some different bases. Had the chance to add the odd skull too. Great fun so I got another 40!

Forgot I started as project with greatcoat germans. Inspired by several people at Facebook bolt action group I thought I'd give it a shot myself. These are chucked away for now as I am really missing the mojo of painting ww2 stuff. Don't know if I'm a little stuffed of ww2 stuff right now and the said cultists are a nice break. Maybe that's why my winter germans has take a loooong time to finish despite the tiny work left.

Some random Lotr stuff I've done. Elladan and Elrohir, Radagast and two dwarves I can't remember the name of (Durin or Balin maybe?) And I made some dwarven terrain. I bought some mdf terrain bases of Ebay and they were great. Always had problems making good non warping bases and these were perfect. Also made some ww2 or 40k terrain too. Got the 40k bug and painting 40 cultists at the moment. Really cool minis.

I was a good boy this month and finished some HYW troopers that was unbased. Haven't got any inspiration for this period right now but thought I atleast finished these and my Jean d'arc mini. Turned out rather nice with the banner. Also finished some terrain projects I had for some time. They turned out lovely I think. Really fitting to my HYW project and some WW2 terrain.

Some recent work the last month. A german AFV and two set of winter germans from Warlord games. The winter germans are painted as to fit with my Berlin force.
