The Weekend Painter: Whirlwind!

The Weekend Painter has have one of the coolest Eagle Warrior Whirlwind's I've seen in a while. A halved color scheme on one of these is extremely impressive.

I really like how the gunner offsets the scheme.  I may have to try something like this out.

Indy 40K: Tutorial - Dark Sons

Another great tutorial is up over at INDY 40K.

I just can't get enough of the idea of Project Space Marine. Create an entire army composed of warriors from individual chapters, without making them all Deathwatch. This will look great on the table. Very interested to see what will happen with vehicles and Terminators. Should be fun to keep up with.

For those of you interested in the Storm Wardens Project you follow the action on Jawaballs Live! on Sunday.

It's been an amazing project to follow and the winner of the army will be really lucky.

Indy 40K

If you haven't gotten the chance already you should head over to Indy 40K and check out Project Space Marine. It's a pretty cool concept to say the least. This may even help me choose a chapter. I'll keep you posted.

So I'm lying here, just staring at the ceiling tiles.

So I'm lying here, just staring at the ceiling tiles.

and I'm thinking about what to think about.

Just listening and relistening to Smiley Smile,

and I'm wondering if this is some kind of creative drought

I've hit a bump in the road so to speak.  Since I last posted I've added an Assault Squad and an Assault Terminator Squad to my force, but I've made no progress in building my army.

I was really psyched when I picked out the Soul Drinkers.  Their color scheme was perfect for me. Purple and Gold remind me of my college days and Green has always been my favorite color.  And then it happened.....I started to read the novels.  I'm on the fourth novel and though they are great reads, they are unfortunately turning me off to building a Soul Drinkers army.  I want an army that I can get behind.  An army that I can believe in.  The Soul Drinkers just seem like a cop out.  Oh we don't like the Imperium, so screw off, but we'll still fight for the Emperor.  I guess it just reminds me of too many things and people in real life.  WH40K should allow you to escape from this exact mentality of I can have my cake and eat it too.  I want an army that stands up for all that's good.  And yet I've sworn to never make an Ultra Marines army.  Now that's a decision I may regret.

With the advantages of building a Space Wolves or Blood Angels army, the only upside to a vanilla Space Marine army is the variety of armies out there.  To say the least I'm a little bummed.  Looks like I'm right back at my original Conundrum.........

Maybe I'll break through my creative drought while I'm lying in bed, like Brian Wilson did.
