March Roundup (and a bit of April too!)

 It's been a relatively busy month hobby wise!

Firstly have sold/am in the process of selling some excess Epic and 40k stuff that I know I will just never use - either because I didn't paint it, or because it's for an army I don't collect or want to paint.

Feels great moving this stuff on, and the brief period of reclaiming some space in my constantly shrinking office/hobby space where I'm spending most of my time these days.

Of course I couldn't do that without doing something equally stupid... My choice this time, having just sold a whole bunch of Epic space marines was to start a new small Space Marine army?!

Partly the motivation for this was to make some Epic 40k/3rd edition specific formations, as well as paint up some stuff for fun.

I've knocked out a battle company of marines, some armour, a Thunderhawk, some terminators and support stuff. (still to base these so i'll put them in the next post)

I plan on adding some land speeders and bikes - my new aim being to make this a 1997 era specific army (although I've already broken this plan by using some older 2nd ed stuff and putting it all on square bases... meh!)

Aside from this I continued my efforts to paint all the things, including some epic and some old 40k models which I originally painted as a kid, and was happy with them at the time, but I knew I could do them more justice now, so they took a bath in some methylated spirits and I'm going to enjoy tackling these again.

Out with all the painting stuff, I've been trying to learn the rules for 3rd Edition Epic, playing some solo games, doing the same for Bolt Action to keep my brain fresh!
