  1. Macbook Air, so hot

    For those of you who haven't seen it yet, I won't waste any time. Click here. For the rest of you: I think I know where my next $3000 is going. Holy crap this thing is the exact definition of what a laptop should be. For years I've been asking why bother make a laptop that isn't either a) completely portable (ie. under 4 lbs!) or b) a more or less portable powerhouse computer. I always said that anything else was a waste of money. I wept bitter tears when they discontinued my beautiful 12" ...
  2. Group Photo

    Just thought I'd post a pic of the army (so far) now that I put them back in the display case. Click the image below for the full size (1200 pixel wide) image.As my little green box of doom has been shown on here before, I can't hide the fact that I have many many many more models to paint. Many of the ones in the green box likely won't see action, but I have more Wardancers, Eternal Guard, another Eagle, and Treekin either purchased or in the mail at the moment. I'll probably bulk out the Wild ...
  3. Painfully boring evening

    Wow that sure wasn't any fun at all... just spent an entire evening fixing models while waiting for various Windows functions to load... the registry collapsed on our family computer.So for all the incredibly complicated ways for the Eagle to break, it picked a really boring one. The cracks in the flying stand completely gave out when I got the model home. So I had to snap off the peg, drill out the part stuck in the base, drill out the belly of the bird, touch up around the drilling, glue on a ...
  4. Rejoicing in Athel Loren

    Woohoo, first game of the campaign is a massacre for the Wood Elves! I had to fight Bretonians too, which was making me nervous. In the end, my feint on the right flank with the Wardancers bought me enough time to whittle down the two units of Knights with my Glade Guard archers.In the end the key to victory was stalling him as long as possible. I held him at arm's length for a while and eventually my Wardancers got a chance to get into combat. They soaked a charge admirably using the 4+ Ward dance, ...
  5. Big Bird is finished

    Got my Eagle all done up. I'll add some minor static grass to the base later, I'll do one big batch for all the new models. Took longer than I thought to paint this guy, the beak was fun and I added a little reflection on the pupil. I normally don't even try stuff like that with eyes :-)The magnetic wings worked out well, strangely enough the only thing giving me problems right now is the flying stand. It looks like the plastic is beginning to crack around where I pinned the peg into his belly. ...
  6. Eagle of Doom

    The primer is currently drying on the eagle, I didn't get a chance to paint him up yet like I wanted to. Silly things like reading assignments and response papers on the second day of class are getting in my way. Oh well I think I actually learned something which is a treat.Anyway I can happily report that the Citadel black spray seems less crappy than the last time I used some. The guys at the shop said that the horrid smell has decreased with the last few batches, and the horribly slow dry times ...
  7. Wood Elf army updatage

    Just a bit of a teaser, but I put in a couple of hours of work tonight for my army (well like 6 to be honest). I wanted to paint, but I mostly ended up drilling, pinning, and sculpting wood grain and feathers. Not the most fun I've had in ages (in fact I think I have a blister on my thumb from the pin vise... knurled grips suck!) but at least I got some good work done.I bulked out the Wardancer Champion's base to be fitting for a Noble... yep the cool dude perched on a tree stump with 2 swords will ...
  8. Proof!

    Proof I'm not completely inept at army painting ... just mostly inept.Perhaps more pics to come later, when I'm not rushed to leave for class :-)
  9. Actually finished a regiment

    I'm feeling kind of giddy at the moment. After a marathon session of painting at Tom's house last night, I got my second regiment of Glade Guard archers painted up for that Fantasy campaign I keep talking about. I did move away from the old color scheme in some ways (the first models for the army were painted prior to the army book's release, pre-release figs is one thing I miss deeply about working outside the hobby industry) but I think they look better for it. Much less bright and vibrant and ...
  10. New Years goodness

    Hey all, I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday so far. Just thought I'd give a quick update while I'm still under the blissful effects of unsafe dosages of extra strength Asparin. Got a nasty cold complete with pounding headaches, sore throat and last night I had a lovely time freezing and shivering in bed despite a massive pile of blankets once I got home from the New Years shindig.So I probably won't be doing any more painting for a day or two, I had been making some good progress on ...
