To cool not to share and something that Inspires us to push ourselves and do better. The painter is Bogusz Stupnicki a link to his personal site is at the bottom. Credit is due to him not me.

Managing Time

Not everyone can casually jump back and forth through time I mean my Tardis is currently in the shop personally. So between “the busy” that is our lives each of us tends to try and carve out some time to march around or tinker with our little toy soldiers. Not everyone is lucky enough to get paid to play with little plastic men for a living, most of us have several other things that require our attention and time. Most of us have a job for example or things we have to do during the day like school. (some of us have both) I will let you in on a little secret that you already know. It takes time to get good at this hobby just like anything else. Only this hobby is a bit more complex than most hobbies so it’s easy to forget that. (why we play)

NEW FORGEWORLD release and they have really out done themselves this time. The detail on this model is fantastic. If you haven't seen it yet you owe it to yourself to at least check out the pictures real quick. Great center piece to a army I think and I personally can't wait to see one of these painted up...

Necron update

Adepticon update really.. Some pictures of the progress on the Crons for Adepticon Team event. My fellow team mates in Chicago slave away in the Necron sweat shot as that deadline looms ever closer. Also for the record does anyone not hate building a ghost ark??

Acolyte paint scheme

So I am super busy and I have been having some camera issues so I have missed a post or two I was hoping to get out already. However thought I would drop a quick line and show some painting. Pictures are from my phone so they aren't fantastic.

The first squad of three is done in my test colors and I feel they came out really well. The detail really doesn't show in these picture but hey what can you do sometimes. =P The bases need a bush or two but over all they are finished and since I have the process down I'll be moving on to the other squads as well so expect more progress shots soon.

1850 RTT Quick bat reps

The event was a good time, the missions ended up being  a bit wonky and causing confusing in how they scored them but over all a good time was had, which is normal for a event at Eastside Games and Cards. Link to results is here if you haven't seen it.

I went into this event as a great chance to play a few games and really test out my GK's. Since I don't get to play as often as I would like a tourney can be a awesome way to get some solid test games in to really understand what units do on the table vs in theory or on paper. We all know sometimes they don't match up. I had only a few games under my belt so far with the army so I knew that I was still in the learning curve phase.

My list roughly.

Happy Birthday Emperor's Codex!!

Dead tree with lights on it? pffft cake and candles...pffft.. well... if the steam punk girl came out of the cake with candles maybe.. hmmmm... Anyway moving on..

Today my internet home on the corner of nonsense and many pictures, where I "sling" my random musings of tactics, things going on, and metaphors about our hobby time, is officially a year old. For an entire year I have been keeping on with the...ummm.... on.. I suppose.
