Apparently. At least in the miniatures painting community. The question "do you have a blog?" seems to pop up every now and then, which gives me an opportunity to use the subtitle "by popular demand" for this blog. :)
Being new to the 40k hobby I selected Ultramarines as my army of choice. Partly because of the AoBR box, and partly because I really like the aesthetics of the chapter. Which seems like a reason as good as any for choosing an army, especially if one aims to paint the entire thing.
So, look forward to some WIPs and step-by-steps as I move along and learn more!
