Greetings and salutations, blog readers. It is I, Andrew, here to regail you with the first chapter in a story everyone in the gaming industry would love for you to emulate; New Year, New Army. After painting my Ghar from the Beyond the Gates of Antares starter set, I decided I might as well get the starter army. And some blisters. Nothing else, I promise that's where I intended to stop all along and my decision to call it there had nothing to do with nothing else being available for the faction so I can't buy anything else and I can stop whenever I want so don't judge me.

With that face, I almost feel bad for my cannon fodder. Almost. And now, as a public service announcement, be careful with zip kicker if you use it. If there's super glue on your hands, it can cause a chemical burn. I wound up with this little guy after fixing my disruptor cannon.
That's all for now, I'll be posting my progress.
Happy gaming, Mojo out.
