One of the best Artemis conversions and paint jobs I've ever seen, extraordinary. The red, face and power sword are amazing, a really great model. He reminds me of Ramone Dexter, all he needs is the little 'fony' tattoo above his eye. Brilliant stuff.

Hey a question for you Americans :-) I am off to Hawaii (yes I had to say it again) and we'll be there on Halloween! Ooooooh scary stuff! down under we don't 'do' it but I was wondering what actually happens over there on Halloween, is it celebrated in all states or is it just a thing that some people do and some don't? do I need to throw lollies at kids? or 'can' I throw lollies at kids!?

It's everywhere... though I've never been to Hawaii. However... since Hawaii is a tourist economy I suspect they do all kinds of things for it. Parties, "Haunted Houses", etc. I don't think they'll be throwing lollies at kids (that kind of thing gets you arrested). Take the nerdwench out and go find some fun, spooky "adult" stuff to do (and no... I'm not talking about your fetishes). I mean things like the afore-mentioned haunted houses or trails, or Halloween themed parties. Enjoy!

The Damo-marine looks quite cool. Now we want you to build full scale armor for cosplay purposes to match.

Are you staying at a resort? I doubt you will have trick or treaters, but you may have some party options to go to.

Willkommen ins Amerika!

Not thinking Hawaiians do Halloween is probably racist. Most all things a white male does are considered racist, but there it is.

Also, yes, we all do it. Do all Australians do um...Wallabee Day? Showing my ignorance, I guess.

My point of advice would be to not suggest giving a child your "lolly". 1. That's how it's spelled. 2 People will think you are a pederast.

Also, no worries on the trick or treating front probably. I live in an apartment and have never seen a trick or treater. They generally stick to houses in neighborhoods. Of course, I don't know how Hawaiians do it, so I'm probably being racist. That's a safe assumption.

Above might need explained. Trick or treating is the act of walking around extorting candy out of people upon threat of vandalism or petty acts of cruelty. Welcome to America! Trick or Treat!

Also, eat a pig roast. They cook it in the ground over the course of an entire day.

Also, I am jelly. I want to go to Hawaii.

Like your Marine. I have no idea how they thought that game would ever take off and I worked at GW when it was on the shelves.

Any chance we could get a comparison shot of him next to a regular marine? And/or a Primarch.


I heard the Sisters of battle like a bend in the sword'?

I did straighten it when I got it but it went back bendy and then I did it again before painting but it went a little bendy again but it's not too bad I'll try and get a comparison shot for you soon.



Like them toy rubber swords we had when we were kids "The Emperor's Mighty Bendy Sword of Death."

Just for further clarification, what you Yanks call candy, we call lollies. Or as Az points out, lolly in the singular.


Not to be confused with loli, which is just cartoon child porn.

Hi guys i'm BAAAAAAACK!

Phew!! what a few weeks I've had guys! an AMAZING holiday in beautiful Hawaii with heaps of shopping and sun baking and eating and just enjoying the hanging loose lifestyle so I better show you a few pics of my trip with Nerdwench, who I might add is now my fiance since I popped the question on the beach on Halloween yes, she shall soon be Mrs Nerdfest or as I like to say Lady Nerdwenchington


speaking of Halloween we were obviously there for it and as we don't really do it Down Under it was certainly an eye opener for us both and a really really fun time! I do love me a good dress up and seeing it all around me tightly packed in the streets, young and old letting loose and wandering the street talking and laughing. I took some pics before my phone went flat which sucked ass but i can show a few as well as some of our other adventures one such adventure was going to an all you can eat Luau and getting back to the hotel and into bed at midnight then up at 3am to catch transport and wait in line at the airport for our trip home....... only to be told we were a day early soooooo back to the phonebook to book more transport and hopefully a hotel room for another night! got to spend another day on the beach but I was tired and a little worn out by then!
Spoiler:

A beautiful sunset through the trees

Beef, Bacon and Bourbon burger with onion rings..

A lovely shiny engagement ring on Nerdwench' finger #sohappyrightnow

The view from our hotel room, pretty damn spectacular



Myself and Nerdwench giving some mean Duckface

Hanging with the hotel porter crew! .....well, one of them anyway

hanging on the beach soaking it up!



and a bunch of cool costumes from All Hallows Eve OoOooooOooOOHHHhhhh










And now for model love! I didn't feel like a full on paint day so I did some assembling of models instead got a Vindicator and a nice little group of Dreadnoughts for some smashy action, a DC dread, a Libby dread, and a Furioso




Oh all right then I'll do some painting how's starting a Sternguard? is that o.k? I did his armour and blocked in the colours for the rest of him so we can see how I'm going to do the whole 10 man squad of them, liking him so far, the completed squad is gonna be pretty awe inspiring I think



I'll be back soon, don't give up on me yet!

Forget the beaches, that burger looks so good. Good to see you back at it so quickly too. I feel like a BA vet, especially the sgt, needs more gold on him. Maybe his face mask, or his shoulder pads being gold instead of red?
