Much of the “Hobby Section” is devoted to “do it yourself” (DIY) Warhammer 40,000™ (WH40k) factions for the tabletop game. These DIY chapters of WH40k armies are written and designed by Monty Maxwell based on Games Workshop Ltd (GW) intellectual property and presented as non-commercial fan fiction. As such it is in no way, shape or form official or endorsed by GW.

The Painted Miniatures on this website, except where noted or implied to have been taken at events or games where other players presented their own work, were painted by Monty Maxwell, using Citadel paints on GW manufactured miniatures. Those miniatures are copyright GW, and the following below is applied, and implied even if not specifically attached to each individual photo:

Special Consideration Concerning the “arrow device” as used in the symbols of the DIY factions I designed: It is my understanding that the arrangement of eight arrows pointing in compass directions as a symbol denoting “chaos” originated with author Michael Moorcock, who has placed it in the public domain, and my use of the device reflects that understanding.

Special Acknowledgment: I use the “Force Recognition” painter from the B&C Tools webpage of  Bolter&Chainsword to design my color schemes for WH40k minis.
