100 Followers, Time for a give away!

Hey guys, how is it going? So 100 followers, wow I feel special. To honor this moment I am going to have a give away. However what do you, the fans, think I should give away? Here are your Choices.

1) 40K Ork Stuff
2) Custom bases and mold
3) Fantasy unit box
4) Something else (make suggestion in comments field)

For number 1) 40K Ork Stuff, I find myself with a variety of unbuilt, new in box 40K Ork stuff. I have 2 Killer Kans (Metal), a box of Nobz, and a box of grots that I can give away.

For number 2) Custom Bases and mold, if you have been following my blog for a while you will know that I enjoy making custom bases for my models. I will sculpt a set of either 40k or Fantasy bases for the winner (40k (5) 25mm, (3) 40mm, (1) 60mm, and (3) 25x50mm Bike bases if you want them; Fantasy (5) 20mm, (5) 25mm, (3) 40mm, (1) 50mm) and ship them to the winner with a few sets of bases plus the molds so the winner can make more of them themselves.

For 3) Fantasty Unit Box I will purchase and send to the winner a Fantasy unit box of their choice. Or number 4) Something else, if none of the above appeal to you please select number 4 and leave me a comment with ideas for some you'd like to see given away. This could be anything from a painted model to plaid socks, so give me some ideas.

You will find a poll on the right where you can vote for your choice. I look forward to seeing what people want.

As to how the give away will work, more on that next time.

It is over! Wait... no... what?

Hey guys, how was your weekend. Well as I mentioned in my last post I moved this past weekend, it took 3 days, lots of friend and family support but I got it done... or did I. I still have two big display cases sitting in pieces downstairs in my car, the glass taunting me. I have a really bad back and so I can only move things a bit at a time and after emptying the contents of a Strawberry/Banana slushie into my driver seat yesterday I decided I didn't want to risk anything, so left the cases in my car. It will probably take 2 or 3 day for me to get all the parts up here, but oh well.

On other news, the podcast I am a cohost of, Gamers Lounge put out episode 9 on Monday. You can find us on iTunes, at Podcast Alley, or directly on the web by following the link above. Check us out and let me know what you think.

Well have a good day everyone, back to your regular scheduled gaming post tomorrow.

Moving is a hard thing to do...

Hey guys, Huron back again in Digital Land. How has everyone been? I know it has been a while since I posted last but things have been really busy here. Between projects ending and new projects starting at work, then the old projects cropping back up with a vengeance; podcasting on Gamers Lounge (we are up to episode 8 with episode 9 recording on Sunday); and me moving on this coming Saturday I have had zero time to post anything new.

That said, I have been steadily working on getting my Blood Angels painted up. I was supposed to have 1000pts done on May 30th for the Pathfinder 1000, but do to me having to redo the interior of one of the rhinos and deciding I didn't like how the red was looking on the regular Blood Angel models I scraped a lot of what I had done and started over a few days before the deadline, which really put a hamper on me finishing on time. Below you will find very WIP images of what I am working on for the BA's, let me know what you think.

BA Tactical Squad, Part 1

Death Company, Progress

3 Rhino, 1 Death Company, 2 regular. All with magnetized top hatches

Painted interiors of the 2 regular rhinos, DC rhino interior in prior post.

Fully magnetized Baal Predator, door magnetized to add or remove sponsons, weapons option magnetized too (See second pic)

3 Sanquinary Priest, 1 with jump pack, 2 on foot with power weapons.

And finally a converted Librarian using only plastic parts from a number of kits. Yes the top of the axe is the axe head of the Space Hulk Librarian model. Notice the regular back back and wings combo, it is cool that you don't just have to use the jump pack in order to get the wings to work.

So that is it for now. With me moving this weekend and my internet not being installed until Monday the 14th, I suspect it will be at least till then before I post again.

Look out next week for more BA pics, a look at my new place, and plans for my new gaming table.

See you guys later...
