I'm new(ish) here. I've read plenty for a while, but only recently sorted out an account on The Bolter & Chainsword.
I came back to 40k a couple of years ago, after a break of 15 or so years. I fell into DA accidentally, I had bought the smallest starter, then a couple of bits off eBay, one of which happened to be a Ravenwing Bike. But after doing a bit of reading (a lot has happened since 2003!), I really liked the background, seems much more interesting than most other chapters. So I bought some more kits.
Things snowballed... I now have c7k points of Unforgiven, it has mostly been built and primed, but only about 3k of it painted so far. I don't get anywhere near the painting time I'd like - maybe a couple of hours a week. So it's been slow going.
I've been wanting to do a hobby thread for a while, I'll add picture of some of the bits I've already completed - going back to close where I re-entered the hobby. Hopefully it'll show some of the progress I've made with painting (and photography) over the last 2 years.
I was sure I had more photos, but I seem to have deleted them, or put them somewhere a bit too safe!
My first painted unit was actually a Tactical Squad (what else!), but that is one of the missing photos.
I soon bought the DA Lieutenant though, and I remember being so pleased with the outcome. I look at it now though, and wonder whether I should strip it and start again...(basing was added later).
Next up, and around the time Kill Team was released, I decided my roster would be a bit different, and so I went for just Scouts. The sniper squad was actually the first unit I fully completed with basing - and they were my first attempt at camo. I have a lot of fun playing KT with these guys.
That'll do for now, I'll add some more photos in later!
