  2. Another weekend finally over

    <p>I've said it before and I'll say it again, I hate weekends.&nbsp; Mind you, I', not really in love with my job and want to get there as soon as possible, but the weekends are becoming more and more difficult.&nbsp; With Alex a month away from becoming an official adult but not yet out of school and Mr C bridling at the constraints of his physical limitations things have been getting increasingly tense.&nbsp; More often than not it's easier not being in the house.</p><p>But ...

  3. Apocalyptic battle

    This is the second (?) apocalyptic battle played in our local GW store. This time our major eldar army was not present so what you see here is a battle of Xenos alliance (Chaos + tyranids + orks) against Imperial Scum. The Xenos alliance was outpointing the Imperials by almost 1000 points , but Imperials had two Bainblades (that proved to be exceptionally useless) and 6 choices of strategic/ tactical assets including minefields (that proved to be useless as well), several versions of bombardments ...
  4. Master of the Fleet

    Back again, got a few hours of painting in today. Also did a lot of cleaning/arranging my desk which is nice... I think I can actually be productive now without so much clutter.Anyway I have pictures of the first model for the Blood Ravens, this guy is one of the new Masters of the Chapter models, the Master of the Fleet to be precise. Hopefully he'll turn out nice, I'm quite fond of the colors I've picked out for the army and I'm anxious to see how they turn out on both command and rank and file ...
  5. just a bunch of girls.

    I really like the way these came out. The rest of the pack are a little more tightpants and boots and stuff.. . so I don't know if the tough style I tried to get on these will work on them . . . we'll see.

    whatdya think of these:

  6. Gun Street Girls

    I originally got these to do as a street gang for a demo-game to be run at Salute next year, however I came up with a different idea that I liked better for that project, so now I have a bunch of Mr. Copplestone's gun toting ladies, in both street and more corporate attire. Not something I would normally paint for my own collection, but they are pretty nice, clean, simple pieces.
    Nothing too absurd aside from the set-piece improbable bosoms.
  7. Time out for NaNoWriMo

    It is November and if my painting skills were reduced by other activities, they will draw to a halt while I write my novel.  I managed to get some more work done yesterday.  This photo is actually two days ago.  I have various browns on the minis and the base for Mr. Octupus Head is done.
  8. penultimate amazons

    I've been jacked up on cold medicine for two days, so I haven't trusted myself to do the freehand on the last 4 shields. Otherwise they're done. Just waiting for the musician and standard bearer to arrive in the mail, then the whole unit will be ready.

  9. All Hallow's Eve!

    As promised last week, I took photos last night of our yearly yard decoration for Halloween. Why yesterday and not today? Mother Nature. It seems she doesn't want to cooperate this year. Todays forecast is cold and windy. Since our setup for Halloween night uses three smoke generators, part of the effect will be lost.

    Otherwise, things will go as usual, scaring the kiddies!

    Here's some photos of the setup. New this year: 6 more tombstones, a giant kid friendly ghost, a ...
  10. Fallen Angel Update

    Put in a few more hours of work today while staying up late and watching Beetlejuice on CBC. Awesome movie, I forgot how much I loved it as a kid Also just remembered that the Enter key on my Logitech G15 keyboard is broken. I popped the key off to check it out, and with modification I could convince the key to produce a backslash when depressed, but it won't function as the Enter key no matter what I do. I'm really at a loss here!Anyway here's some shots of the Fallen Angel, now that I've uploaded ...
