Bwana Bill nudged me into action by announcing an upcoming game of Warhammer 40K.
"40K Deployment Warning Order
Marshalling area is GP Woodbridge. D-Day is October 4, 2008. H-Hour is 1300. Table is reserved until H +9. All commands will report deployment readiness by D -2.
That is all.
I cautiously proceeded into the deep, dark, and very dank depths of my home, where my war room is hidden. A recent tropical storm caused a flood in the basement, which resulted in the excessive dankness, and discombobulation of the room.
I looked around, trying to figure out what I had lying about for my Space Wolves, that might be built, and even primed, but not painted.
Basically this effort is the resurrection of an army that I once painted and then sold.
I have re-acquired some of my original models from the lad I sold the army to, and have touched them up to match the paint job on my newer models.
I found a unit of Blood Claw Bikers that I had built and primed years ago, and have finally begun to work on them in hopes of deploying them on Saturday!
