Here's a photos of my finished Seraphim. They haven't really turned out that great, mainly because I suck royally at painting faces.

Also, here's the final finished photo of my WH Acolyte:

I should have blogged on this one a while ago. I've been playing some Carcassone recently with my wife. The other half is not a gamer, but she was persuaded to play this game with me. I first heard about it on The D6 Generation and it normally gets a mention in the "When Wives Attack" section, so its a popular wife game. There is a D6G review of it in one of the earlier episodes.

The game itself is really simple to play. You simple place tiles to make up terrain features (cities, roads etc). You can then place followers (meeples, little wooden people) on each features and score points when the feature is complete. That's pretty much it in a nutshell. Its really easy to pick up and play, takes vritually no setup and you can finish a game in about 45 minutes. My wife will play the game with me, and most of the time she beats me. So if you're looking for something easy for non-gamers or to play with your kids at Christmas then Carcassone is worth checking out. I got mine from Amazon for about £13, so it won't break the bank.

It's been a while...

...but I'm back in the painting saddle. I hadn't painted for a while, and my interest has slipped, so I'd been doing some other things. Anyway, I had two long drives last so I slapped on 4 back to back episodes of 40k Radio, 2 of Podhammer, and a D6G, and it re-inspired me. Last night, I managed to pretty much finish off the Seraphim, so they just need basing. They're not the greatest minis I've ever done, and I still suck at painting skin and faces. Pics when I get home.

Dropped into my local GW on Saturday. They've got a veteran's night every Tuesday, so I think I will try and get along there with my CSMs and actually get a game in. Just need the vindicator finishing off for 1500 points of Nurgle.
