So I had surprise open heart surgery a few weeks ago, and am very lucky to be alive. I feel ok now, and am recovering away from my home. I hope this explains the long delay between posts!

Recovery takes a long time, so I have plenty of time to paint. I have a bag full of paints, and some miniatures purchased with the help of my wife and my parents. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball it seems.

On to the good stuff. I thought I would paint up a new Space Marine army while stuck here in cambridge. There is a nice store called Pandemonium Games nearby which has 40k gaming on thursdays, so I might as well paint a small army. I've been playing around with the Bolter and Chainsword's marine painter and have come up with the following color scheme. I was thinking of calling them the Angels Tempest


  1. That's got to be one of the worst surprises I've ever heard of! Ranks up there with "surprise hemorrhoids" or "surprise kick in the nuts."

    Get well soon and show us what you've got painted in all that free time you've been blessed with!
