Humble Beginnings

Hello all. I am attempting to start a blog to motivate me to complete my Praetorian Guard Army. Having drooled over and been inspired by Colonel Gravis' Blog, I figured it was time to start mine.

I fell in love with the Praetorians from the time I read the Glazer's Creek BatRep in White Dwarf. I shortly thereafter bought 2 of the limited edition box sets. My obsession was only made worse when Games Workshop released this:




I promptly convinced my wife to let me purchase it because it was a good "investment". There it sat unopened until very recently.

In the mean time I used the limited edition box sets to paint up an army. My skill were week but my passion was strong. Here is the result of that:
Looking at them now makes me want to hang my head in shame. Fortunately my painting skills have improved (at least I think they have).

Now to the present. I have finally decided to put this whole thing together. As it stands I have 529 infantry including heavy weapons and 15 Sentinels. I plan on playing a very infantry heavy army so I feel I have a good start.
