Dread-knight for .25 cents

During Mother's day weekend I went to some garage sales and found some stuff for some up coming projects.  I found this cool robot for 25 cents that seems to fill the bill for a very cheap Dread-Knight, check it out...

I think it's an Iron Man 2 enemy.

It’s a little after 5 AM here on the East Coast of the United States...

and I’m sitting here in the dark in my Studio contemplating things. Last night I lost yet another EBay auction trying to get some Dark Eldar vehicles for my new project. I’ve never really used EBay before; I’ve spent lots of time watching stuff that I could NEVER afford again but never really bid. I was kind of heart sick this morning trying to figure out a way to make money to support my family and also support my one true love, gaming. Back in the early 1990’s I worked for AT&T, it was a great job and gave me a salary that let me build the collection that I have today. Now after being laid off and some very hard family crises, that same collection has saved my family by being sold off to the land of Ebay to I’m sure some very lucky gamers. After 10 years I have an OK job right now but I make just enough to support my family with no real room for luxury items like Games Workshop models or Resin Titans. So I stalk EBay, looking at some of the items I lost to auctions and dreaming of getting my collection back to what it was. For all you collectors out there, you know how it feels not to have a complete collection of something, it kind of drives you a little nuts. So every often I start a project that I can do on a limited budget, repaint some of my older models, or just dream about winning the lottery and buying back all of my lost “children”. This Summer I’m going to be 50 years old, yes officially a beardy git. I’ve made some promises to myself and my family which I plan to keep up with, one being becoming a vegetarian which I completed about two years ago, another being becoming a Vegan on my birthday. I’ve given up drinking partially as of three months ago and I plan to totally stop on my 50th. I was hoping that on my 50Th year I would be able to sit down with my hobby, get some great models, build some amazing armies and just keep on painting and playing till my heart gives out. But the reality is I can’t afford that, if I want to have the gamer toys to collect and paint, I’m going to have to work even harder to produce the money to purchase these things myself. So over the next few months I am going to be giving up all of my weekends and spare time to make some money, overtime, new job, something to pull in some capital. I’m not sure why I’m rambling on here, but what the hell, it’s my blog….

Talking about repaints, here are some OOP Eldar from my collection that I am repainting to use as Dark Eldar, let me know what you think.

Blog of Note: Tales from the Maelstrom

Hey Team,
I'm always on the look out for cool and different blogs to read about Warhammer 40K universe.  I've come across a great site, Tales from the Maelstrom.  it list itself as "A wargaming blog cataloguing our ongoing campaigns set in the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 universes. Being veteran gamers, we use a range of rules sets, including Rogue Trader, Warhammer 40,000 2nd Ed, Necromunda and Mordheim." and boy does it ever.  I love my collection of OOP Rogue Trader miniatures, but this gentlemen has me beat.  Read through his blog for cool battle reports, fantastic figures, and wonderful scenery.


Check it out!
