Hey guys and gals
So I have finally decided to start up a blog about my main hobby Warhammer fantasy and Warhammer 40K. Now I haven't exactly been in the hobby very long but -as is my nature- I'm an information sponge. I've read alot, talked to as many people at my friendly local game store as were willing to talk to me, contacted a few people I have encountered on various web forums and talked to one very experienced friend of mine. Unfortunately this leaves me with a lot of theory but little practice. Hence the blog! My hope is by adding one more motivating factor (that is getting work done on my latest project so I can post about it here) I will spur myself on to more and better experiences to have and then share here. Kind of like an infinite loop (did I mention I'm a software developer by day?). And on that note I will share my current work on my very first conversion!
So I've done the typical conversion jobs that almost every one does. Using the extra bits and bobs on the sprue to add some character to a specific model or make a unit commander even more unique. However I have recently started work on my very first unit that does not have a model created by Games Workshop. Being primarily a dark eldar player I suspect I will have to do this quite a bit in the days to come. Currently I am working on the Razorwing Jetfighter heavy support option. I'm not as flush with money as I would like so I wanted to try to limit this conversion to a single kit plus any random bits left over from my small dark eldar army. To that end I found a picture of another razorwing that someone had made out of a fire prism tank a Vyper as well as another kit I didn't recognize. Using this model as a starting point I purchased a fire prism tank and started butchering it. The general ideal being to use the turret as the cock pit and the body of the tank as the wings after it has been cut in half. Here are some shots of my progress so far.
Thank you for reading my very first post ever. Feel free to leave any question, comments, or suggestions. As I lack anything that even resembles a life I will get back to you fairly quickly.
