So here it is. Hastily erected during the midnight hours in between admiring peoples miniatures, trolling eBay and searching for bitz. Hello to all.
I have been reading and viewing peoples blogs on here for a few weeks and have finally decided that maybe doing my own will hope me focus as I start out from scratch on my first 40k Army for ten or so years, and it had to be Praetorians.
I have always loved the Guard, poor down trodden bastards in a universe full of well armoured killing machines, and ever since reading that fateful Last Stand at Glazer's Creek in White Dwarf 222, no guardsman would cut it for me, as a true Englishman, unless he had that scarlet coat on.
So as I slowly add to this, hopefully a few kind soles will take pity and give me some tips while not mocking my painting and green stuff sculpting skills too much. I am in awe of Colonel Gravis, Colonel Winterborne and Colonel Ackland, to name but a few, and their devotion to a great little Guard Army, when Games Workshop have thrown it on the scrapheap, is a real source of knowledge and inspiration for someone who has been out of touch with the world of 40k as long as me.
