As well as many other projects on the go at present the Purge Cardinals (My own Space Marine Chapter) is still progressing behind the scenes. Not that I generally rush any project but this one is really plodding along.
Not too much to report in this post but I have made my first standard trooper.
The 30k Armour is waaaay more cooler than the 40k armour.
I enjoy piecing the marines together, it’s quite therapeutic. As most of you would know my usual approach to putting minis together is doing my own thing with them but for this project I wont be doing too much converting. Only a bit here and there. As you can see there is battle damage and scarring on his armour. For me it’s a must.

As we all know this hobby can sometimes be like an extreme sport.
Your heart starts to race, your hands tremble, your bottom lip quivers and you break out in a sweat just painting eyes on these tiny little plastic bastards!!
On another note I am still working on the fluff for the Purge Cardinals. It might be quite a lengthy story when it’s complete.
Ok, that’s it, I’m off to work on my Plague Doctor Diorama some more… Ooops did I say that out loud? Sheesh.
