Hello again been a while but I have some new information on the New Tyranid Broodlord coming with the Shield of Baal Campaign Boxset. While I was flicking through my new Shield of Baal: Leviathan Book I noticed something very interesting...

Here is an update on my strike force. There are a few posts that should be appearing over the next few days, that I haven't yet been able to take photos fro as I have either not been at home, the weather has been too poor for half decent lighting or I have been painting! More after the jump...

Unfortunately it has been two months since the last painting article. And so, to celebrate our birthday, here is the first work in progress shot of my Honoured Imperium Statue - for an honoured website.

This new Space Marine Terminator Captain has shown up again. This time it is in a White Dwarf preview of A Galaxy at War (The miniatures book from the 3 book collection). Along with this new picture comes annotations as to what is what. Read on after the jump for more...

After trouble with my order and a Web Exclusive Space Marine Captain, everything has been resolved and I am now 'Happy as Larry'. If the tone of my post dealt with me using words too extreme for the subject matter, I blame it on a heat of the moment annoyance and are not at all angry with Games Workshop at all (and apologise if I offended any of the warehouse team - you do an excellent job and I acknowledge that you can't always be perfect, we are all human).
A large thanks to Kyle from Games Workshop Customer services, who helped me out with the issue. I felt it was handled in the best way it could possibly have been handled and exceeded my expectations by miles.

I am not normally one to talk in a harsh way about Games Workshop, as I love pretty much most things they do. I very rarely dislike a model they make and couldn't care less what a unit's rules are - if I want them in my army I will put them in it.
So what is this post about you may ask? It all starts with an order I recently made involving the new Web Exclusive Space Marine Captain #1...

Although I have already done a Crodon Sunday today, this is technically the main post as this is the one I have done one painting for. Here is the first model from Attack Squad Solus - my Ironclad Dreadnought. I have wanted to paint it for a while now and it isn't that difficult to do after all.
Sunday, 16 March 2014
This is Crodon, speaking to you from the past! Since I'm away currently this weekend, I needed a project that I could easily rustle up for my Sunday post.
I have scheduled this post to appear on the blog this Sunday if all goes according to plan. Read all about my ruined buildings and bubbling craters after the jump.

Yet again another disappointing magazine. Read in two minutes flat. However if you have a subscription from the old White Dwarf, Keep it!!! This way you get the magazine at 2/5 of the price.
More of a review after the jump.
This post will be updated each week and details the contents of each issue of White Dwarf. This post can be easily found in the "White Dwarf Archive" section in the right hand column of the blog.
EDIT JULY 2016: White Dwarf Weekly has officially ended its run. This is an archive of all 131 of the covers published as White Dwarf Weekly. New releases will instead be announced online every week.

Off with another Crodon Sunday and this week it's big news: I'm changing my basing technique. This is an entire overhaul and repaint (coming soon) of all my previous bases. I hop in the near future to make a basing tutorial. More after the jump.

Today has been spent painting more of my Grey Knights and in particular any vehicles. I have also finally started painting my custom built techmarine. Pictures after the jump.
Sorry for not getting this review done yesterday, as I was either out or reading this!!! This is the first White Dwarf that I am properly excited about. This probably is mainly due to the fact that it is 40k (and Imperial as well). Full Review after the jump...
Thursday, 20 February 2014
So much is known about this weekend's release, yet so little is know for certain about how the whole release for the Imperial Knights will look. At the end of the leaked White Dwarf it states: "Next Week: Freeblades". But what does this all mean, and why tell us what's coming next week?
More after the jump.

Today was not the most exciting of hobby days but a necessary evil: basing and spraying day. With now only 30 models left to base and all models sprayed I feel I have made quite an achievement.
I appreciate that spraying and basing pictures are probably not the most interesting, so today's Sunday post will show you the inside of my model cupboard where I hide some of my larger models. Pictures after the jump.
With the third issue of the new White Dwarf out, it would appear that although the format will be the same throughout each issue, there may possibly be some differences in the third issue of each series of releases. This welcome surprise comes in the form of both the Citadel Hall of Fame and a Battle Report - WITH WORDS!!! More after the jump.

Today I took the decision to repaint some old models, desperately in need of my now more experienced hand. They are not near completion yet, so they are a little messy. Here are shots so far for my work this Sunday.

Another week means another White Dwarf and along with my paints today I picked up the second Issue of White Dwarf weekly (mainly because it made the price easier to pay, change wise).
So here is my next review of White Dwarf...
Monday, 3 February 2014
For some strange reason we are having some issues with our images showing up. I can't do anything about it now, but I would really appreciate if anyone could drop a comment below just to say what's not working for you (if anything).
This problem is mainly on the mobile version.

Finally my Sternguard Veteran Squad's Assembly is completed. It is astonishing just how much effort has to go into a single unit.
However I think the results are definitely worth it. More pictures after the jump...
With a new year, comes another new overhaul for Games Workshop's monthly magazine, and the introduction of - essentially - two new magazines: White Dwarf, Weekly and the all new Warhammer: Visions.
From the rumours I had heard, I was looking forward to the two new style magazines. White Dwarf would be their weekly advertising "catalogue", displaying the new releases (and obviously allowing for releases every week) and that Warhammer: Visisons would be more hobby orientated and more like the old White Dwarf, minus the advertising.
As I said I was looking forward to them, but now I'm not so sure...

Time for my second Sunday Post, a series which shall be named Crodon Sunday's. (Of course this doesn't stop YoshKa posting on Sunday's). This is the first half of my third squad of Sternguard Veterans. (Possibly even Tyrannic War Veterans ;) - only the ones with bolters of course)

So, with exams over for us both :D, I figured I should get posting and what better way to start it all off, than with a tutorial on a subject very dear to my heart - Ork Boyz!
This is an in depth and detailed tutorial for painting an Ork Boy in the Evil Sunz colours complete with high resolution images and detailed instructions. Full tutorial after the jump...
