Just a very quick update on a glorious day of sitting around painting! I recently bought from ebay the "Battle for Macragge" set, principally for the crashed space ship terrain which was unpainted. Inside came a dozen space marines under coated thick black and Varras. The creatures were untouched as was the two rulebooks-it was a bargain.
Anyway, not much I could do with the marines or poor old Varras so they got a quick lick of paint-I am going to experiment with the ship....ebay does have the occasional good buy on it after all.
I now own a fair number of Space Marines but still never played a game! I do own a couple of rule sets but prefer the older "Oldhammer" one but I still need stats for the figures...Games Workshop and the codex sales idea really grinds my gears.
Keep blogging Chaps.
