2010: Time to Get Things Happening!

Hi there fellow bloggers and blog followers!

Firstly let me apologise for the extended break between posts. This was obviously not my intention and all the same old excuses get recycled and reused with LifeTM being the main perpetrator. The end of 2009 was crazy for me as it was with many of those in the limbo known as student life and retail work with a few other unexpected issues unfortunately my hobby and blog suffered. For the last almost 2.5 weeks I have been taking a bit of time out of it all in W.A. with my girlfriend and her family for a holiday. Whilst there I was cut off from civilisation in that there was no 3G coverage for my iPhone and so the internet was just a dream for me!

Now I'm back and rearing to go and looking forward to a great year of hobby progress. I'm taking a lighter year at uni with just some casual work in there to keep myself alive and away from the debt collectors and so hope to pump out a fair bit of hobby. Well a fair bit for me at least.

I'm currently not at home so I can't post you any new pictures yet but in the new few days I'll make sure to grab some photos I've tried to post a few times and just force them onto the web.

I need to figure out a visual display for my hobby progress, goals, achievements and future projects so if anyone has any ideas shout out or leave me a comment or link so I can get myself sorted.

Since I'm still on W.A. time I'm having trouble readjusting my sleeping patterns so I'm sure there will be a few extra posts and a fair bit more reading up of all those great blog posts I've missed from those that I follow and come across. Seem familiar?

Anyway to kick off 2010 here are 85 marines built by two of my friends whilst at our local Gw today. I couldn't resist getting a snap of this almost company of marines to show to you guys.


  1. Hahaha

    Awesome photo that one is! Gotta love staring down at all those marines...

    Better get your hobby shoes on man :) so catching up to do during feb!

  2. Damn man, look at all those marines. what's the intended purpose for them?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but all those marines look like horrible mono-poses. ARe they just a series of snap-fit or AOBR marines?

    It's good that you are back to the blogging. Don't leave me to be the only one updating with some frequency :P

  3. They are intended as "intro marines" for all the potential young hobbyists. They are not Assault on Black Reach models but just a three piece model for intro painting lessons. You can tell they aren't AoBR or even the starter paint set marines since they don't have the sculpted shoulder details and come in little sprues of 3 marines.

    Well if your posting 2 or 3 times a week I'll try and keep up. And you can always give me a friendly nudge if it's been a bit too long.... :D
