Knights of Grey and Eldar that seem dark...

Hello fellow hobbyists!

I have been steadily working on some Grey Knights and strangely enough, some Dark Eldar! As time passes and budgets become diminished, I  have decided to keep my armies down to only two for the time being. I need to focus on just one or two projects and fully complete an army so I can finally play some damn games.

It took me a bit, but I believe I have found the right scheme for my Grey Knights.

I think I am actually slowly starting to become bored with power armour...
The result of this boredom...

I am very pleased with the end result of both miniatures.
Expect some more Grey Knights very soon and of course more yellow and purple Dark Eldar.
Hope you like them!

Hello and welcome to my workshop

Hello everyone!
Welcome to my little end of the blog-o-sphere, the D6 Hobbyist.
When your circumstances finally change and you finally get the chance to really look at what is that you love and what is integral to your life, you end up with my current state. I have reached the point where my circumstances have leveled out and I can finally breathe a sigh of much needed relief.

I always say that my family comes first and my obsession with "plastic crack" comes in a close second along with work. My hobby has helped me through some very hard situations and it gives me a good concrete center to toss aside my woes and other problems. So as you can tell, my hobby is a huge part of who I am. Always has been and always will be.

Soooo welcome to my blog that will follow my adventures in hobby-ing with tiny plastic soldiers. Ive been inspired by a few friends/fellow bloggers to expand my horizons and give a good try at documenting my experiences for others to enjoy. I'm in the process of building a good light box and getting a good grip on my camera situation. I may start off a bit slow keeping updated but I am determined to keep this going as long as I can!

First I present my Dark Angels Librarian with conversion field. He was definitely a ton of fun to paint.

I was commissioned by a friend of mine to paint up his Dust:Warfare Allies Heavy Tank Busters. Decided to go with a slightly different grey scheme....

I also have a WIP shot of Kommander Sorscha for my Khador force. More pics of them to come as well.
