Autobots Transform and Roll Out!

These famous words caught the imagination of my generation and "Transformed" us into fans of giant robots duking it out for supremacy on our home world of earth. The new movie, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen opened for all to see tonight at 12:01am and yours truly was in attendance. I will not give you any spoilers, but encourage you to give the movie a go. Did you like the first one? Yes, see the second one tomorrow, trust me, I will be seeing it again tomorrow, and Thursday, and Friday, and... and... it was that good. Or, so you sort of liked the First one but found some of it cheesy. Okay, see it this weekend, give it a shot, I think the stuff you thought cheesy is done a lot better this time around.

Okay and that small percent of you that hated the first movie (what is wrong with you???) give it a week or two, then, once the crowds have died down go sit in the theater, wave hello to me and the rest of us fans who with be in the middle of an "and... and..." moment and drop your predetermined thoughts and give it a go, you may be surprise by how much you will enjoy yourself.

Okay, enough Transformers for now, more later. For those tuning in for 40K and painting goodies, fear not, I have some stuff coming down the pipe that will wet your whistle. It has been a busy month with little time to edit photos but I am going to see what I can't do to find some time this weekend to take care of several event reports, modeling progress shots, and up coming event info to share.

Until I walk this way again.

Quick Status Update

Well this weekend saw lots of gaming for me. If you follow my Blog at all you will know I participated in a 4 round 1750pt 40K tournament on Saturday to Benefit Leukemia. The tournament went well though not so much for me. Around $600 was raised during the event with 3 more to go over the course of the summer. I think we can top this next time. I will be posting a game by game accounting of the event like I did for Rapid Fire tonight or tomorrow, just need to get the pics edited.

I also played in my first Monsterapocalypse tournament on Sunday. Though I made it to the final round I got knocked out by an old acquaintance of mine. I played Guard using Sky Sentinel and he was playing Carnosaurs and to be honest I am not sure what the name of his monster was but it was the pterodactyl from I Chomp NY. I'll have a few pics from that event tonight as well.

And finally, I am thinking about doing a series of tutorials and gamer aid articles from my own perspective. There are a plethora of articles that can be found on Ron's FTW main site that I have found very helpful on some projects recently and I want to return the favor and add in some of my own jems. That said, besides an article on the bases I have gotten a lot of comments on for my recently posted Bikes and Landspeeders I am drawning a blank on what I should write about. So I am opening the doors for your suggestions and ideas. Please post a comment and let me know what you would like to see.
