My name is Michael, I am 18 years old.
I like kendo, Warhammer 40k, and metal.
I speak English and Japanese.
I post a lot of assorted and varied things. Including a lot of tabletop gaming, especially Warhammer 40,000 and Dungeons & Dragons, also Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader.
I am proudly anti-feminist and my blog reflects this.
I trust the emperor
I miss the old citadel paints.
These new ones don’t have a smell. I always love when I have to use one of my old citadel paints and I open the pot and it has this smell that’s really nostalgic to me.
I’m not saying I sniff the paint or anything, what I mean is that the old paints had a very strong scent and when you’d been painting with them for a few hours, the smell filled the room, along with the smell of hobby glue.
While I’m extremely glad to be collecting and playing Warhammer 40k again, the smell I always associated with it is gone… It’s a little sad.
