Over the last 18 months or so our modelling skills have come on apace, largely thanks to many of the posters here on Dakka. Hopefully we can post the odd thing you guys will enjoy, and the karmic balance will be complete!

More scrapping in the GrimDark Future, although the new UK lockdown means we may have to wind up this year's campaign early :-/
