Having recently painted a few 15mm scale (1/100) Flames of War models I can totally appreciated the effort required to paint small scale models. And these are even smaller!

Not dead yet…

Despite lack of updates neither Chronicler Isiah nor the Dark Fortress have died, been overcome by the rascally forces of Chaos nor bludgeoned by Orks (well, that I know of anyway). Heavy workloads have contributed to having little headspace for anything else over the last few months. But, Emperor be praised, there does appear to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Remember keep the Unforgiven faith and trust no one.

Mind Wipe and walkers and rules interpretation

Yay. Hopefully this will stop folks from selling stuff on Ebay, or elsewhere, that has been produced here in good faith to download, use, and distribute for free. This is wrong on so many levels because: a) we/I don't own the intellectual rights to anything produced by or derived from Games Workshop; b) the notion that you can freely sell someone else's output without first asking is just damn cheeky. So trying to safeguard all parties.
