Hmm, Maybe I Should Paint It Or Something?

It doesn’t come to me as a surprise that I have a lot of war gaming stuff. With all the Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Fantasy and Warmachine I have been collecting through the years. Though I just didn’t realise how much a lot was until I started packing it up the other day getting ready for my impending relocation. Besides the 4 video game boxes (and yer they are CE of WOW… I don’t know if that is a good or bad thing atm xD) all of those boxes are filled with something table top war gaming related: everything from models and gaming accessories right through to paints and brushes. Whoa there is a lot of stuff there which is mostly untouched!

Barely any of the models I have brought are assembled yet alone painted which is slightly depressing. My one little slight reprieve is that 90% of all this is 2nd hand bought or traded with different people, hardly any were purchased at full price. Though in saying that, all the time spent acquiring these items I could have spent painting the stuff I already had and maybe even playing some games. So after taking all of this in, I have decided to kick myself into gear and get back in the hobby and not just be a poorly run re-stockist of the hobby.

Now the question is, where do I start?

Without a sense ofhesitation (and perhaps the kicking in of the Champion of Chaos rule) I accepted the challenge. My Chaos Space Marines vs Chaos Daemons, The new edition codex. It also turned out to be the local gaming club first clash of 6th edition codex armies, in turn making this game just a little bit more exciting.
