Behind the Blog - 3++ is the new Black



In the Grim Dark Future, there is war, and blogging about said war. Also blogging about anything and everything else going on. Blogging is a thankless job most times, and while our online community is pretty awesome in general as we celebrate all things Grim Dark, hobby, and miniature related. Seldom is the curtain pulled back to shine a light behind the scenes. The people who devote themselves to the dark god's of blogging work away frantically keeping the posts flowing. So in this series we will be speaking to some of our communities most dedicated. Getting a small glimpse into the minds of our fellow bloggers, and pillars of our online world. To get this glimpse a short series of questions went out into the warp, and these are the bloggers who responded.

Vendetta Progress - weathering continues



Another quick post I am throwing up as I work through my back log of content that I have been meaning to get up on the site. . .Just some quick snaps further along on the Vendetta. 



As you can see the progress is starting to come together. I still have to weather the other side of the plane and the underside. Then there is detail work, the cockpit, and some finishing touches, so far from done. However it's always nice to show some progress on these larger models to hopefully inspire some of you, and to keep me motivated at the same time. =) 

Thoughts and Feedback are welcome.

Space Hulk for IPad



So on the 5th I think they released Space Hulk for the Ipad and possibly other IOS devices. I have been looking for a new thing to do on my ipad so I scooped it up. I want you to take note that I have never played the board game and only read about the game on steam.

Vendetta Wings




Quick snap, I haven't posted this yet, but I have been working on a Vendetta recently. Figured I should start showing some progress to show the random jumping around I tend to do painting project to to project and also to help keep me motivated. The model is far from done but you can see the weathering result I am going for. I am working on the main body section now, so hopefully some more progress shots soon. The over all look is really coming together and I think it will look great once the main plane is close to done. The weathering pigments are really great for achieving so many different looks.

Being a tourney player more than a hobby player as my roots, I tend to only focus on units I need for a list or upcoming list I want to run. I have been setting on this model for some time without any real motivation to paint it since I haven't been wanting to play the IG allies I started collecting. Sadly unless I get inspired to do a new paint scheme like this, I tend to only paint units I need to for some upcoming event or small projects. Sometimes I just want to paint a cool model because of a idea I have for a modification or something. In this case I finally decided the type of paint scheme I wanted my IG vehicles to have.

Digital Bah Humbug





You know I may be mistaken but I can remember when people would complain all the time that GW was taking forever to release new rules for anything and how frustrated people got because Codex A needed an update more than Codex B. How many of my hardcore DE players remember the gap between books they lived through? Fast forward and we are in a place that no one saw coming. The overlords at GW have been releasing content like a zombie horde that the community is now fighting to hold back. The rules are fluid and the Meta is fluid.

Now I don’t know if people like to complain in general? I mean maybe it’s part of the hobby to complain about the hobby? I know a few people that if they aren't complaining about something they just aren't happy it seems.  People have a knee jerk reaction and get all “Friends of Humanity” before giving things a chance I feel, or stepping back to try out something. (Obscure X-men reference my bad) When 6th came out I know tons of people that walked away without even playing a handful of games because it’s horrible.. Random Objectives, with random terrain rolls, random charge length, random power tables, and allies with flyers.. Clearly it must be garbage I don’t need to actually play. 6th isn't perfect by any means but it’s not horrible either. Just seems randomly off balance like the editions before it to me but I haven’t been playing as long as some people.


I think the Digital rules are a great way to more quickly expand the game. I haven’t seen anything broken more than an actual codex at this point. The things that make the game one sided at this point are units that can get a reroll on a 2++, and wave serpents. These things didn't come from supplements or datasheets, or digital rules. The power Tau, Eldar, and Deamon table domination currently is just from the standard rule books they gave them. The Digital stuff seems to be just more flavor and toys.
