New Community

We now have a G+ community, sorry it is dedicated to Minnesota fans at this point. I needed to update this dusty old blog. The community is a toddler but should start containing useful pointers about the universe of Warhammer 40,000. The blog is linked and the url for the community is

Grey Knight

Wow, this blog is dusty!

Seems that real life caught up with me and I have hardly been doing any hobbying lately. I have to say, I've missed it. I got a few 6th edition games in and I have to say, I have really enjoyed the dynamic and fun they have put into it.
But after playing a game with proxies for Grey Knights, I figured I should get some painted up!

For my Grey Knights I did not want to have shiny metal warriors with a hint of blue on them. I wanted to have them be darker and more gritty. Because my Eldar use teals, tans/whites as well for most of their forces, I wanted something more dark and shaded. Here are some shots of my first model.

For the power weapon I wanted a subtle way of working with it, so I went with a suggestion from Ron over at FTW that he had gotten from a friend. (Thanks Ron!) As well, I did a few light layers of drybrushing to give it a nice glow. The grays are darker and I mentioned them here for an earlier posting. 

This being my first space marine, I can say it was a nice change of pace and a bit of fun to work with the model. Hopefully more will be making their way onto here soon!
