Upgrade time

Just upgraded to the new template format. I was using the "classic" style and couldnt figure out where all my setting/options were to rearrange the blog page. Silly me.. Click UPGRADE TEMPLATE button for teh win!

Added some favorite links to the sidebar. Go check out the Save-or-Die radio podcast and leave them some feedback! These guys are buddies of mine and have managed to create a really cool/hilarious show. The WarGamer Community is a great place to find info about modeling and painting. AwesomePaintjob has some amazing tutorials. Just click the links.. You know you wanna! Let the geek flow freely!

Let me know what you think of the blog. Be gentle. :)

Skaven.. They're coming!

GW just announced yesterday that the Skaven will be the next upcoming WH fantasy army to be revamped.. Nice looking cover art for the codex as well. With GW's recent new mini releases having such nice sculpts, it looks like I'll be draining the wallet for a plastic/metal fix a little more this fall.

Video test.

Testing a video..

Space Wolves- prequel

For Russ!

I've shelved these guys for way too long now. Back in April I entered this army in a Iron Builder contest, and took second place for best painted. I figure they're about 70% finished. Some models need more than others obviously, but with the new Space Wolf stuff coming out from GW in October, I want to have this army finished and ready for any gaming I get lucky enough to participate in. Some of you may recognize these pics from, where I orginally posted them. I'm also going to finish up my Tyranids during my three week break from school. Here is a pic of one of the warriors I started.


I *heart* this guy... Really. Looks like he is coming out with his own line of paints/pigments/washes. Les, you're a true bonifide benefit for the mini-gaming hobby/community!

Linky to his video (youtube)

For the Horde!!

BTW, I'm back playing WoW, Horde side, on a pvp server again. I'm currently lvling a 71 hunter in the vast expanses of Northrend. I'm running with some buddies who are lvling a DK, shaman, rogue, drood, and a lock. Should make for a pretty tough pvp team once we all hit 80. Coming to an arena near you..

Two posts in one day! Someone call Super Dane!

Uncanny likeness eh? I think my guns are bigger. I need to figure out how to photoshop some paintbrushes into that utility belt.

Make your own hero HERE.

Summer, summer, summertime!

August in Ohio usually means lots of warm, humid days. Not so this year. We're hanging in the 70's to low 80's with an occasional poke into 88 or 89. Even so, its perfect weather for a convention. Last week saw several of my gaming buddies hitting GenCon. No way for me to go this year, so I got to live vicariously through their pictures, often taken by cell phone, but effective nonetheless. A big hearty thank you to my two ninja shoppers! You know who you are.

Next weekend, (August 29th), is FOPCon, which for a small local convention, looks pretty well organized. I'll be there assuming my kitchen pass isnt revoked, and suggest if you're in the area, to stop by and get your game on. The event is sponsored by The Dayton Area Boardgaming Society , Fat Dragon Games , (who have a crazy sweet GM Screen, check it out!), and Bell, Book and Comic, one of the LGS here in the Dayton, Ohio area.

More info about the con can be found here.

The bench

After about three weeks of organizing, a few hours here, a few hours there, the chaos was contained. My paints and supplies are where I can reach them, and I have plenty of room to move around. A friend of mine loves to say, "It aint real without PICS!", so there ya go. The little green table you can barely see next to my drafting table is where I put my son when he wants to paint his models.

With everything in it's place, I should be able to get more modeling done. Y'think? :)

Arrgh! Shiver me timbers! Voodoo Elixers

Indy Dave from the RAM in Indianpolis recently announced they were carrying RootJack, Pirate Elixer from Voodoo Elixers Inc.

I'm not a pirate, but I aspire to be one some day. Maybe even attain the covetted rank of Pirate Captain! (someone has to fight off all those ninjas).

Check the Ram and grab a bottle of this tastey goodness if you happen to hit GenCon this year.

I gotta tell you. Zombies are my idea of cool. Nazi zombies are even MORE cool. Cool in a way that has me drooling like an old basset hound staring at a juicy steak in anticipation of getting my hands on this miniature line.

So ya.. I'm looking forward to this game and its minis..

Here is some cover art from the site...
And the website itself..
