Ironjawz Army! 

So I have been meaning to do this post since December last year… I’m terrible I know, but anyway, I got a new Warhammer army for Christmas!

Let me introduce you to the Ironjawz! An awesome, badass army of Orruks,!

Ironjawz

They are currently built and sprayed in my parents conservatory and I started painting them on Sunday, I’m doing the classic yellow armour with bits of red thrown in on some of the little details, Arran has done the spraying for me, I decided on white as the undercoat as I think it will help bring out the yellow much better than if we sprayed them in black, so far its working!

Here is a pic of them all sprayed and ready to paint!

We have also already had a few battles with them, against Skaven and Dwarves, so far they have kicked ass and won all but one fight, it’s great! I’m not used to winning this much, however Arran has now bought a new army, the Kharadron Overlords, heres hoping that the Ironjawz can still hold their own against them!

These guys are also so much different to my Dark Elf army, I’m loving them, I have so much more motivation to paint them, I think it’s because they are so different and much more colourful, don’t get me wrong I still love my Dark Elves, I just needed a bit of a break from them as I was lacking the motivation to paint them!

So yes! watch this space, these Ironjawz are going to look awesome when they are finished and lets hope they can keep up their winning streak and destroy their new opponents!!

2017 Relaunch!

So 2017 is finally here, time to start all that new year, new me rubbish that everyone always loses motivation for by the middle of Jan… Fortunately I have decided to stick with being the same old me that we all know and love! except this year I’m actually going to make a proper go at relaunching this blog… Can you believe it’s been 4 years this year since I started this!

Starting today I am going to aim to post twice a week (for now), Tuesdays and Fridays, I like this schedule cause it means I get a couple of days in between each post to think of new posts and as I occasionally suffer from bloggers block i definitely need this time and I definitely need to start off slow again and build myself back up, I need to rekindle my love for blogging, cause I really do love it!

Along with my new schedule I have updated my theme, changed my layout a little and added some new pics for my header bar! trying to make it feel a bit more fresh, hopefully all of this will help right, I mean if you fall out of love with something its best to start fresh… that’s my theory at least!

So here’s to 2017 being an awesome year and I will be back on Friday with my first post on the new schedule!! (Which is some pretty big news btw)

Back in the game…

Sup guys! 

Happy 2016! 

Hope you all had a great new year, mine was lovely, got to spend it with Arran we spent the evening just chilling watching films, so it was a nice quiet night for us.

So 2016 is going to be a pretty big year for me, I graduate (hopefully) at the beginning of July and then one of my best friends gets married at the end of July, I will also be permanently moving to Stafford once I finish uni which will be awesome, me and Arran will be getting a little flat together, starting our lives together properly and I absolutely can’t wait!

I’m going to be 26 this month as well which is scary! 

You know what I have quite a lot to catch you all up on, so rather than trying to get through it all in this post I shall do lots of individual ones, I’m quite excited to share this stuff with you so keep your eyes peeled, I’ll be back next week with the first of many posts and I shall keep to this schedule for the foreseeable future, one post a week and then if I want to it gives me room to post more during the week as well. 

So, hope you all have a good week and I hope 2016 is going to be as exciting for you as it is for me, let me know some of your big news in the comments! 

See you next week,

Freshly Pressed…

When I first started this whole blogging ordeal I spent a ton of time on the Freshly Pressed page, reading over and over all the new freshly pressed articles thinking, how, how do they do it, how do they get Freshly Pressed, that’s where I want to be!

I’ve now been blogging for a little over 2 years, granted I don’t have the greatest schedule and I could probably push myself to do that little more, but, sometimes I just have nothing of interest to say, so I figure it’s better to say nothing than to write something that is forced, am I right?

In this time I’ve come to realise that being Freshly Pressed is not necessarily something that will ever happen and so I have not necessarily given up on this “dream” more, put it to the back of my mind, if it happens then awesome, I’ll be a happy blogger, but hey if it doesn’t no big deal right.

I enjoy blogging, you know why I enjoy it? because it is an outlet for my thoughts, I can be open here, say whatever I want and I love it, starting a blog was probably one of the best ideas I’ve ever had and I’m so glad I stuck with it, initially I was only going to do it for a year, that went by super fast and now here we are halfway through year 2, how time flies when you’re having fun!

So I guess what I’m trying to say is, if you’re new to this, don’t get hung up on the idea of being Freshly Pressed, enjoy your blog, do it for you and it will flow much more naturally, because at the end of the day if people like what you write then you will get viewers, if they don’t then hey who cares, carry on regardless, do it for you, so you have something to look back on in a few years, to remind you of all the awesome and maybe not so awesome things that have happened in your life, cause memories are great people!

Blog on my friends!

And if you’re lucky, maybe one day you will end up on that wonderfully sparkly Freshly Pressed page!
