Hello and welcome to "The Far-Seeing Eye". I am a hobbiest/gamer from Melbourne, Australia, living in Vancouver, Canada, on a working holiday visa, and I've only been to Whistler once! I picked up the Warhammer 40,000 hobby in 1995 and despite a few years off I have always enjoyed the "vibe" of the Grim-Dark 41st Milennium. Kudos to Games Workshop for keeping things fresh and outlasting many other interests of mine!

2011 'Squad' Entry, WIP

My blogging goal is to chart my hobby progress for the next 12 months and beyond, and having entered a local painting competition twice since moving here my hobby skill and patience has improved immeasurably.  I can't wait to see what the next 12 months will bring!

2012 'Diorama' Entry

The key differences in the two models is the use of 'Non Metallic Metal' and associated blending, increased brush control, a little freehand painting on the shoulder guard and walker (not pictured), and a dabble into the world of sculpting, as seen on the Trajan's Column themed scenic base. In 2013 I hope to sculpt a great deal more of the models entered, try my hand at 'Object Source Lighting', and create some vivid dioramas of the 41st Millennium, all while making inroads into my two current armies, Imperial Guard and Blood Angels.

Thanks for dropping by!
