About Xenos and Proud

This is a small blog about my Warhammer 40,000 hobby. I will try to concentrate on the tactics behind the general game and my Xenos armies but there will be the odd post about random stuff.

About Me

Xenos and Proud is an 18 year old from Scotland who has been playing 40K for the last 4 years. He loves the 'under-dog' xenos armies, namely his Tyranid Gorgon splinter fleet, his Saim-Hann windrider host, his Tau Vleastean Hunter-cadre and the newest addition, the Shadowfax Corsairs. Although his tactics are mostly 'borrowed', his painting skills still 'developing' and his luck becoming evermore 'ridiculous' he continues to play, paint and roll in the hope that one day things will get better.

Swarmlord Completed!

I was never happy with the Swarmlord as he was very wobbly as I hadn't pinned him and had really rushed building and painting him. His paint had also chipped a lot really quickly as I hadn't bothered with varnish either.

So with some 'spare' time I had between exams I redid him entirely: pinned him to his base and waist; pinned his Bonesabres on; went over the cracked paint; washed him again in Badab Black (love this stuff); painted his details like teeth and eyes and even put detail onto the Bonesabres. All in all I am proud of him and even baptised him with a name: Say hello to Harry!

So, what do you think?
