Building My DeathWatch Army.

Hello! January has ended and the next one has begun, did you know we’re into a leap year? Crazy. I’ve been plodding along with my projects, well some of them. I got the chance to order some warhammer in the middle of January and spent a few frantic days assembling them for the gaming club…

Warhammer 40K And The Joy Of Making
