Joker time

Decisions have been made and I have plumped for the Joker's gang. I have made some purchases and am currently waiting for the postman to make the delivery. Very exciting indeed. Should be a good start to 2015, hobby wise.

There are lots of interesting looking models and I am looking forward to working my way through them. The colour schemes will be 'stand out' with lots of clowns wearing funny costumes with mad wigs and of course the white faces. Totally different to anything that I have done before.

To get me started the Dark Templar sent me one of the first models that he purchased, the ever wonderful Harley Quinn. The model had been assembled, pinned and undercoated on a splendid base and as such was ready for me to get the paints out.

The model is tiny with lots of detail. I am working my way through and really trying to pick out as much as I can. I am glad to have the magnifier and daylight bulb or otherwise I think it would be impossible. I am delighted with the progress and I can see how the white faces will really set this gang apart. They should look great on the board.

Speaking of which - I have made a visit to a couple of the local arts and crafts shops and started to assemble some raw materials.

I was reminded by the Dark Templar of a superb board that we saw at Salute 2011. A real inspiration!

I am liking the idea of creating a ferris wheel. Obviously that is currently really daunting and I have no clue where to start but I learned from all the blood bowl terrain last year that sometimes you have to just go for it and see what happens.

I guess it is true to say that for me 'Batman Begins'!


  1. Now when did all this madness start? You turn your back for a couple of weeks and a whole new hobby starts! :)

    1. Ha ha - tis true but the models are a bit special and its always good to try something different ;-)
