The eagle-eyed of you might notice a new header for the blog. This is LONG overdue! This is actually the fifth banner that I've had since I started the blog in 2013. I orginally named the blog due to the idea that I had a magpie-type approach to hobbying - collecting and hoarding shiny stuff, whilst also flitting from one thing to the next!
Banner 1 (the amateurish original)
Banner one was based on one of my Brat gang characters - who I named the Magpie Dandy of the Sutter Dukes. When I started the blog, I wanted a model to be shown in the header, but for lack of a suitably interesting model, I elected to show the silhouette of my then unpainted (and unnamed) Magpie Dandy. The silhouette is shown against an old notebook, and some uninspiring text thrown on to the image.
Banner 2 (now with stylish font!)
Banner 3 (looks like it belongs to an arts and crafts blog)
Banner 4 (the long-serving veteran)
A new modern age
|The original advert for Rogue Trader from the First Citadel Compendium (1983). |

I guess all in all, this is probably not hugely interesting to anyone but me, but I'm very pleased with the new banner and ticking one well overdue task off the list. Hope you like it!
