A Warm Welcome

To all of you who have found my blog through Faeit212, I bid you a welcome. I thought I would take a moment to just quickly throw out the welcome mat and explain what I hope to achieve through this blog.

Primarily, I am a big fan of the Eldar. This blog was just going to be me showcasing some of the work that I do for my Ulthwé army, and going into depth on some of the choices I make as I paint them.

I find that as I paint, I sometimes develop a character for the miniature that I am painting. I never really get to discuss that side, so I thought i'd put it in a place where I can let people decide if that is what they want to read.

As time went on, I found myself struggling to paint to a schedule (don't we all) so I started chronicling some interesting battle reports that I play. After all, I paint my miniatures to have a presence on the battlefield.

I am open to criticism on these. I would like feedback on what I can do to make them more interesting, or what I can say to convey the thrill of battle. Hopefully they will develop and evolve as I go, but I do need the feedback.

There will also be the odd random thought published, like I did with the army lists or the apology to the Wraithknight. These usually come from the random chat in the FLGS, either from the regulars and their points, or just things that we talk about that I find interesting.

Again, I welcome all discussion on anything I say, otherwise I wouldn't put it out for you to read.

Lastly, there will be the odd non-Eldar race featured. My plan is to add Tau and Dark Eldar allies to the main force as time goes on. In some ways to give me a break in painting the same thing, but also to give me more options on the battlefield. I also have a Necron army that I will feature soon that was part of a Tale of Gamers style event that really kickstarted the confidence I needed to go both feet into the hobby.

So thank you for reading and I hope you will come back and enjoy what I post. Also, I am looking to customize this blog a bit more, so if anyone is able to throw together a decent header image, give me a shout. See you on the fields of battle!
