Bachelor Party Tonight

Oh snap that's me!

For some reason I didn't get to posting Games Day pictures yet since I have been keeping busy. Here is a random spattering of the pictures that the woman and I took while we were there. You can find all of them in the games day Picasso album here.

Since games day I have been working on the Terrain slowly. My "client" told me to wait a week because he had things to do so I have been taking my time. Thus I have also been working to finish one of my Cryx Warjacks. Which I will say seems to be shaping up quite nicely. More Later:)

Games Day!!!

So I haven't done much hobby work in the past few days as I have been keeping busy with other things in my life. Plus after frantically painting and working on all that terrain I was slightly burnt out. I have 2 weeks to finish the terrain so I should be done before then and finally getting to work on the last of my own things.

In other news Games Day is closing in! Sadly none of my friends are going this year mostly thanks to how disappointing it was last year and just life in general. Hopefully I will meet some cool people and get to have fun. I don't think I will be bringing my army with me but I am still considering it. More Later.

Last Part of Terrain

So on Tuesday I dropped off the eight pieces of FW terrain and picked up the last 3 huge ones. These last ones are just huge one of them is the FW Factory piece that they had with the extension to make it even taller. Work has started on these three and this set started kinda roughly...

The guy that I am doing this for glues down all his metal miniatures and resin with some weird orange glue that is similar to rubber glue and when I went to clean the release agent off of the resin the glue lost its hold and everything came apart. So I had to scrape, peel, and cut off all the glue then re-glue and pin everything on. I didn't fix the warping that all 3 of the bases had but he had told me they were fine as is. I also took the time to clean out the windows that he hadn't as well as fix all of the walkways which were glued on and ever even had the extra parts clipped off.

After doing all of that and gluing everything back together I primed everything and started the base coats to it all. There is quite a bit more detail in these pieces. But it will be a fun challenge to finish. When I finish I plan on finishing the two Warjacks for the Cryx Faction that I have left over so they will be done and I can move on from there. I did finish the Warwitch Siren and will get some pictures posted soon enough.

Oh also I did finally get in the Repressor Kits that I ordered from someone. So I now have 4 Repressor kits but im missing one bulldozer blade! I will have to figure that one out.

Lots of Different games!

So my posting has become slightly infrequent and I'm just going to simply blame life! I have been quite busy ever since the economy claimed the job of someone close to me.

Before I get to rants about Off Topic stuff. I have been working frantically on my commission terrain work and I am almost done with everything. After some hours of work I have a banner to paint and then I will have finished 2 large, 3 medium, and 3 small Forge World City Fight Ruins to bring me to a total of 3 Large, 3 Medium, and 5 small. There are only two or 3 Large/Huge remaining pieces to complete.

As I mentioned in my last post Starcraft 2 came out just over a week ago and I have been on that game like a fat kid in a cake factory. While there are some things that are lacking the game they are so over powered by all the things I enjoy about the game that its sucking up all my time. I was able to complete the campaign 3 days in and have been playing muti-player for the past few days since then.

In other gaming news my DM came over with his wife for a double date and we busted out the Battlestar Galactica board game. While I have owned it for probably over a year at this point but the only time I tried to play it was with a group of people that the game just ended up being no fun with. This timewas actually a great experience for the guys, albeit slow thanks to the lack of rules knowledge, the girls hated the game since it was quite complicated and just too much to do. My DM and I ended up playing again last night after DnD with one of the guys and that was just as much fun and much quicker now that we have the rules down.
