  1. 4th Edition Thoughts

     I finally had a chance to hear/read all of the noise made at GenCon about the unveiling of 4th Edition D&D. I'm somewhat excited about the things they mentioned – all but one.Things I liked were streamlining of combat. Their focus on removing (or at least reducing) interruption in the flow. They also mentioned re-organizing the information in the books making things easier to find for the novice. That was the one thing I disliked most about the new books. If they were going to treat ...
  2. While in a book store...

    I was in my local book purveyor's the other day and I overheard a conversation as I was looking at the art books.  There was a couple the next aisle over talking, and the actual conversation went like this (the names have been changed to protect the moronic):Jane:  Hey Tyrone here are true crime books.  You would like these, why not read one?Tyrone (indignant):  Jane, I passed my reading SOL.  I an't got to read no more if I don't wanna.  I ain't gonna read no book ...
  3. ME13 and Filigree

    Well Mini Exchange 13 has arrived and its my first.  I suppose I technically should have been flagged, but I am pretty active on the forums so I guess that was overlooked (and is appreciated).  But… I drew a flagged guy who shall remain nameless.  I hope he is legit, as I really don’t want anyone to get skipped.  Unfortunately, he has only one post (his sign up to the ME) and no posted pics, though I only have 2 ATM myself.  I could add more but I don’t ...
  4. New WIP Album - large fortress

    Just added new WIP album with pictures of a large fortress that I am slowly building. Comments are more then welcome. I got to admit this is my first project on THAT scale and I am building it slower then I would want to but it is getting there.you can see it here 
  5. domestic animals and progress of modern science

    Time to continue my pseudo-scientific pseudo-humor category. Scientists are (usually) very polite people. So, it is not uncommon to find in the end of most scientific papers the section with acknowledgements. In this section people: 1)      Express their deepest and most profound gratitude to funding agencies that so graciously dispensed money (so we can satisfy our curiosity for their expense) 2)      Praise esteemed colleagues who provided ...
  6. Nurgle Terminator "Hammerfist"

    I've finished the sculpting on my first Chaos model, a Nurgle terminator that I've nicknamed "Hammerfist".  I've taken WIP shots and when I upload them tonight, you'll see why.  Also being uploaded tonight, is a gallery of all my work thus far.  Pardon the mediocre photography, but the closest to a lighting setup I had was duct taping flashlights to a dresser.  They'll be up between 9:30 and 10:30, at the latest.  Feel free to comment, as they'll be up on CMON ...
  7. Army List

    Well, my Imperial Guard army, the Kandran 1st, is finally nearing decent progress.  I've begun work on the revised army list, which I'll post as soon as it's finished.  I have already chosen the doctrines:1.  Carapace Armor, because 4+ is better than 5+,2.  Priests, just look at the fanatical rule,3.  Heavy Weapon Platoons, because heavy bolters kick butt,4.  Techpriests, for armor support,5.  Storm Troopers, because of their ability to get right in the ...
  8. NMM is kicking my butt

    I love the way its working so far but my god, its work intensive.  I am a slow painter anyway but dayum.  The worst part is I am looking at the models I have primed or in some form of WIP, and wow, I need to stop assembling and start painting.  I have something like 2500 (possibly more) points of black templars in various states of primage and paintage.  This of course doesnt count anything I haven't assembled yet, though they may go to my Imperial Torches chapter that goes ...
  9. Got my camera back

    Here is my attempt at tyranids. Some more or less random Zoanthrop

  10. Puppy Training

    I have a new puppy.  His name is Ollivander.  He pees every thirty minutes (thats a little extreme but it is often).  I am so frustrated with him.  He is cute lovable and has a great doggie personality.  He seems to be broken of taking a dump where he will, but the the pissing in the dining room is getting to me.  Nothing I do seems to work.My wife asks me if I spank him when I catch him, and I say "No, I just admonish him sternly."  Well, my wife the ...
