|Behind the scenes|
So it's rather unsurprising that they would get a bit more involved in the hobby themselves, particularly the son, whom I took for his first ever trip to Games Workshop and his first intro game in which his Chaos Space Marines floored my Dark Angels. Ah well, he had fun and I cried a bit. But I've spent a few hours teaching him the hobby and particular techniques I use myself. Hence the short silence. I haven't gone anywhere, promise.
However, this did lead to an absolutely unforeseen, random painting project that I started at 12pm and finished by 9pm - the Hobbit Goblin King from the box set I bought back in late 2012. When my friend's son found out I had it on our trip to Oxford Street, he promised he would get me to open the box for the first time. I'm kinda glad, he really motivated me to do something with the Hobbit. Here are the results:

So where to from here? Well my hobby group has recently voted on a Group Chapter in which we will all contribute which sounds fun (and I can have an ally for my Ultramarines!), I'm currently working on my next Ultramarine combat squad and I have a hankering to paint some Legion of the Damned. So there's all that to look forward to. Maybe even some more behind the scenes pictures!
