One of my favourite blogspots at the moment is written by the talented artist Joe McLaren. . I really like his approach to gaming and modelling and all his blogs are well worth a look.  One of the little projects on Blue Peter Hammer was to make some Warhammer 40k style tanks out of nobbut card wrapped round a cork sanding block.  This we duly did yesterday and have been sent to the Imperial workshops for painting by youngest son.

Check out Joe's original blog post for instructions.

Yes gentle reader, your host enters his 51st year today with some trepidation and puzzlement to where the last 25 years went. My 2 youngest sons each made me a Fantasy related card, first some Wheelies by Arthur from The Citadel of Chaos ( we have just backed the Kickstarter to get figures of these).

Secondly by George is a picture of Brag from The Trigan Empire. We are all huge fans in our house and are delighted to hear that the stories are going to be reprinted next year. Phrases from the one book we have already are frequently bandied around.  Such as "silence his lying tongue", " throw him to the nobras" and " cease your idle chatter" ( my favourite).
I'll post pictures of my gift when I've made it.
