New Stuff

Wednesday, 29 October 2008

I do like new stuff. Especially when it's stuff I've paid for ages ago, that makes it even better!

Just got my moas through from the Phoenix Club, and they're being turned into praetorian rough riders. I'll get a project log with pics up at the weekend, but they do look awesome.

Also got my heads through from Empress Miniatures this morning. Contacted the lovely people there and they were most helpful. The heads set they do should be 4 caps and 4 pith helmeted heads, but I was really after 8 pith helmets (no real use for the caps). Obviously as a small company it's not easy for them to adjust runs like that, but they managed to match my order up with another customer who just wanted the caps, and I got 24 pith helmeted guys for my praetorians. Awesome, and obviously hugely recommend them. I know it's not GW's fault, but I do love the customer service you get at the smaller companies. Always feels much more personal.

The Site

Thursday, 23 October 2008

Ok, I think it's time to stop messing around with the site. I'm happy with most of it, still need to sort a preloader for the flash but other than that. I've switched the news to Blogger, simply because there's a load of decent GW sites already on there and I thought it'd be good to try and link in with a few.

I am actually doing things with my models though. The gargant is on hold briefly whilst I renew my energy (it's a big bugger). I'm busying turning my AoBR warboss into Howling Mad Murray, big mek mercenary, and building a load of Dark Angels with funky helmets.

Oh and I'm working on a flash game for the site too. You know, just because I can :)

News System

Thursday, 9 October 2008

ight then, hopefully this news system is up and running. Ok I say news system, but really it's just an rss feed from a livejournal. But it seems to be working, and should allow people to comment if they wish. The main benefit for me though is I can make updates without having to prat about logging in to the site back end.

Still a few changes to make to the site, but it's coming together. Right now I'd rather focus on working on my models for a bit! My copy of Assault on Black Reach arrived earlier in the week, so I've been having a hack at them. The new simplified dreadnought is rather damned impressive. And I like the new orks, so I'm edging toward having a couple of mobs in my rebel grot army. The fluff may take a bit of massaging, but it could work.

Gargant is coming along, think I've finally solved the feet problem. New pics as and when. Weekend is fast approaching thankfully some hopefully some movement then. Until then, feel free to try and post a comment and let me know what you think/if it works! Cheers.
