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.

First unto the Painting Table!

So as promised here is the first batch of my Corsair army. The paint scheme was thought up vaguely over a long time (I knew I wanted purple) but the actual colours were decided in Games Workshop from their new range of paints. Whilst painting however the scheme grew and evolved to include a lot more grey and pink than I imagined but I like how it is now. 

All together
The Felarch (Exarch basically but with 3 attacks!)
The Lasblaster crew

The models took several hours to model as I wanted to challenge myself for my Duke of Edinburgh but it really paid off when coming to paint them, I could just drybrush lots as I had used greenstuff to make things stand out. Also, the new paints, they are really nice and thick with cool colours but I don't see what the fuss is about, my old paints are fine and I have hundreds of them mostly full so why should I spend more on nothing? The ones I did get were nice and I'm glad I got them but I wouldn't get any more besides the specialised ones. 

Oh and lastly, my favourite quote for this army:

'Their arrogance is matched only by their firepower'
