The dereliction of lazy summer days

Well its been a while since any updates on here and i can only blame the long sunshiney days of summer that we have been treated to the year here in the UK. Not much was done on the modelling front but i did grow some awesome taters on my allotment among some other lovely veg but now the weather has turned against me its time to get serious with my model making again.
The mono bike is getting close to compleation as is the rider so paint will be applied soon and then i'll start on the scout walker to accompany it. If time permits i will get the seond monobike done also but for now the one will have to suffice.
On the miniatures front all that's been done is a lot of planning and some base coating of my retro future marines project, i've also started choosing the different chapters they will be from which is a project all in itself :)
My continuing delving's into the Inq28 scene or movement if you like has continued over the summer but mostly in the planning department and reserching of images and dipping in to relevant forums and blogs. Speaking of which i had a shock today browsing the ammobunker forums Inq28 area, hitting the general thread for links to new inqspiration the first highlighted note was my little old blog and posted by none other than PDH omfg. So that has made my day better still i re found my inq rule book which had gone walk about and totally stalled my next henchman bashsculpt. I need to scan a couple of pages before lending it to Matt so he can gen up on the rules and we could maybe get a game in before hell freezes over lol.  I will be starting that soon as a fill in between monobike and scout walker building in the next few weeks so new pics will be hitting the blog very soon. This guy will be i think my most ambitious conversion to date, a lot of sculpting will be involved to make him work.
One more thing is that i'm hitting a mile stone this week in the form of my birthday and hoping to make the pilgrimage to the most holy temple of all things 40K that is Lenton and the warhammer world' weather and work and wife permitting. Its only about an hour away so no real excuse i've been very close to it on many occasions but circumstances have always ment that it was not possible. Been at this on and off since i was 13 that's 27 years next Thursday and i'm still rubbish but think i shall crack it in the next decade or soooo :)

Hope everyones been keeping well in the blogo-sphere.
