Used to play Epic and had a vast 15,000 point army. Most of it unpainted mind. Anyway, 17 years past and it all got lost/sold apart from 1 Warlord Titan.
2.5 years ago I was visiting Chester and as I usually do I bobbed my head in the window of a GW to check out the miniatures as I'd done for the 17 years. Not sure what was different that time but I went in and bought a pack of 10 Space Wolves and some Glue...
For the next few months I scoured eBay and bought every Wolf head and wolf shoulder pad I could find to make the perfect wolf pack of grey hunters, then I won a bid for the Space Wolves from the Stormclaw box set and found myself with a lot more, so I bought the rules and codex, and by this point my friend Chris was painting some of my miniatures (I still can't paint).
6 months after my purchase my daughter arrived so it all got put in storage boxes out the way. Then my friend Chris got tennis elbow so painting the miniatures I had given him stopped there as well.
2 months ago Chris gave me back my miniatures as was selling all his stuff as no one was playing it and the 8th edition (he thought) made all his guys irrelevant).
Not sure what it was but I couldn't sell my stuff, and loads was still not even built. So I started looking at someone to paint them - I can build (IMO) some great looking figures, kitbash etc, green stuff even, but I really don't have the patience to paint.
After getting no replies back from Studios I found someone on eBay and gave him 15 guys to paint to match the 10 my friend Chris had finished. I was more than happy with the results and half my army is painted so far.
I bought an 8th Edition Index and rulebook (waiting on collecting rulebook) and started making sure my army fit the new rules. This incidentally spurred my friend Chris to start buying Chaos Death Guard so he's back into it. We just need a gaming board and scenery to start learning the rules all over again (we hadnt even learned the 7th edition last time!).
So I'm currently the proud owner of the following army (all helmeted as just not a fan of helmetless), as you will tell I kind of went off of the deepend considering I don't even have the full rule book in my hands yet. Will try upload photos once I've done enough posts
