Overview of the Blog
Our articles are mostly focused on Warhammer 40K and the hobby: modeling, sculpting, conversions and painting, as we often document our current projects to share with everyone. Basically we use the blog as a motivator for getting stuff accomplished.
We also do editorials on Warhammer 40K and strive to avoid the negative stuff that you can find at most other blogs. That’s not to say we always agree with what Games Workshop does, just that pissing and moaning accomplishes little and we would rather find the positive in something and reinforce that.
Mostly, we’re just a bunch of guys who love the game of Warhammer 40K and like to share what we’re working on and what we think.
History of the Blog
Since I (Thor), can remember I’ve always done creative and artistic things. I began drawing seriously around the age of 10 and got into woodworking at about age 12. I’ve done a lot of creative writing over the years, short stories, a complete novel, poems, songs, just about anything really.
Since 2006 Warhammer 40K has become my primary hobby (a table top warfare game). With the hobby I learned sculpting and miniature painting, as well as resurrecting my creative writing. The hobby has engulfed me completely, from working on my armies to writing fluff and trying to continually become a better player.
On June 30th, 2009 I launched Creative Twilight. I began the site as as place to generate interest, and ultimately sales, for commission painting. I took on a handful of commission jobs and then on January 29th, 2010 I began blogging about Warhammer 40K. Eventually I stopped doing commission work and Creative Twilight became a Warhammer 40K blog wholly.
Since then I’ve taken on a handful of great authors, many of them I know personally. The blog is also slowly expanding the articles being written and it’s no longer strictly Warhammer 40K, though it is by far the most written about system here.
