Did anything get done? Gloves, boots, straps, rope, some metal, pyrotechnics, and repairs. As I said, slow and subtle.
So what'll be done for next week? Lets see, Work, gaming, baking, work, lots of work, Capricon, Cap again, last day of Cap, rebooting.
Oh. Yup, leeetile bit busy next week.
Are you going to hit the monthly goal? Maybe? It'll be close.
...Is that your final answer? ... I mean it will be done oh great and terrible muse.
As for resolutions:
Weekly Goal: last week made good progress, this week is looking negligible.
Cut spending: only picked up 2 models so not bad.
Monday post: yupers, doing good here.
Not angering the Daemonic Muse: came close to angering her. Very very close.
Quick drop to prove I'm alive. Wings, jet pack, Zipp's Zapper, and wrenches done.
Weekly Goal (21st-27th): paint all the things. More realistically Iron Bogz, Zipp, and Sparks.
Cut spending: paint don't count so nyeah take that spending!
Monday post: Wednesday shift but yeah.
Not angering the Daemonic Muse: Hello? ... Helloooh! ... Bueler? ... I, I'm not sure what she's up to.
Oh good! She wasn't angry, just sneaking.
Eyup. So whadya got for me? Sky Pirates! BzzZZzzzZZZzzzzZZZZzzzzz...
Yay, doing the monthly painting comp is going well. Eh-heh, yeeeah, next month is marines.
Redcoat, Kriegsmarine, or OOH-RAH/NCIS Gibbs type? Mmm, no. Space.
... Custards/Pre-March lites? Uh, that's Custodes and Primarchs, but yes.
... Svarg. On the other hand (Nero fiddles while) Earl Burns! And How!
Not bad. And the Big'uns.
Svarg! That's the full month's goal ain't it? Not quite, Large Steam Arachnid still needs to be re-attached to hir base and Hans the Stampede hasn't seen much love.
Durn, an' so close too. ...
You ever heard of a band called Sabaton?
Maybe? What's that got to do with anything? They've got an album, Carolus Rex, named after King Charles the 12th of Sweden So? I'm weird and was listening to it today.
And? Meet the Caroleans, Carolus Rex, Meg Tanner (previously appearing), and their guards.
... Is that the Swedish flag on the droids? Yes it is!
Why? A very good question!
____CAROLUS REX: Refurbished by Meg Tanner the programming installed in this droid was highly corrupted creating delusions of grandeur. No attempt has been made to correct them despite it declaring itself ruler of a sovereign nation that doesn't exist and claiming Meg Tanner as its co-ruler.
____GUARDSMAN ERIK: Runing a copy of the Carolus Rex program modified for subservience to Meg Tanner and the Carolus Rex unit. Currently seeking spouse willing to accept its glorious service to the "Kingdom of Sweden." 54 attempts at wooing, 67 denials.
____GUARDSMAN HEIDI: Running a modification of the Guardsman Erik Program with the brashness toned down and romantic inclinations removed. Currently seeking new territory to claim for the "Kingdom of Sweden." FOR THE GLORY OF CAROLUS REX AND LADY TANNER!
... Well okay then.
Feb 28-Mar 6: Find a Spees Maureen or 5 and paint some Gupps.
You were too "tired" *cough* LAZY*cough* to go to gaming last week so nothing was bought.
This ... Is a Sunday post isn't it? Is that close enough?
Better than WEDNESDAY!
And best of all you DID NOT svarg me off! Very im-paw-tent that.
Till next week! SALMONELLA! Don't you mean SAYONARA!!! Eh, close enough.
Roit, lets see wot we got.
Gupps done, Speehs mahrine chappy for a friend and the competition procured, Reaver-Can and Reave-Bot procured, Daemoness and more DMR started, and BlackDragon G-1A starfighter progressed.
Svarg, better than I expected.
It's tuesday. Oh, yeah. Mynd-Clock was off yesterday.
Finish the BlackDragon, work on Chaplain, finish the Daemoness and work on DMR people.
Not doing too bad on the buy vs paint front.
Posted a touch late angering the Muse.
Overall grade: C
Inevitable_Faith wrote: Keeping ahead of your purchase vs painted quota is always a win! Got some interest projects on the go, looking forward to seeing that chappy for sure.
It's close but progress IS greater than buying if I ignore KickStarters paid for in 2016 that should arrive this year and The Other Side which is claiming it will be here before 2018 but I doubt it. Unfortunately the chaplain didn't see much progress as I had to ok plans for him and sculpt grips. But progress has been goooood.
From L to R, Finish a DMR Draconis native squad, work on the chaplain (parchment and steel), last week's purchase of a smuggler, Kroot, BlackDragon, Red-ney, Cool-hilda, and ME! Umm.
Er, the Daemoness that is. Yup, still need to get your ship and some good photos but the Daemoness exists! Now for the resolutions;
Yer a big ol' svarg headMeanie.but last weeks goal was acomplished and this week's is already posted.
Painted is clearly in excess of last week's purchase which helps cover my pretties you bought previously and haven't painted.
Finaly I'm not toooooo svarged off so you may live. I'LL TAKE IT! And thank you oh grea and tera-bib-el one.
It's official. I'm restarting Dark Eldar. I now have Gangs of Commorragh on order at the FLGS.
You svarg 'ead. I still need to get the Kabalites, Wyches, Scourges, and possibly a beastmaster.
... Are you insane? A ham coven is the next step. Plastic Hameonculous, 2 boxes of wracks,and talos/chronos hybrid.
Doot, doodle, dee, doooooo!
Draconis 42-3 Security team Bravo reporting for duty for assignment in scrublands.
Am I supposed to be impressed? Chaplain Noh'Nay'Muh reporting for inspection.
Hrm, looking done. No mam! Grips, wax highlights, joint rubberization, and GLOW-Y BITS left to paint.
Huh, continue. Sgt. Ash for inspection!
Why isn't he wearing his helmet?! Damaged faceplate, better proof has already been ordered mam.
Very good, I was afraid he needed to be executed for Svarg-headedness. Starting proof, and weak-willed foolishness also reporting.
Purchased; 1 (one) ARC-170 starfighter "Shiny"
Started; random secondhand Space Hulk terminator "Bloodfire", Draconis 42-3 Security team Gamma, ReaveBot, ReaverCan, ARC-170 "Shiny"
Potential Vic, err, candidates; "Darth Vader", "Royal Guard" Squad, Black Blood Shamans, The Nephlim Twins
Oooohkay, so what's the goal? Chaplain and Bloodfire done. More started.
I bought the ARC last week and ordered Gangs of Commorragh so absolutely no buying of pretties for 3-4 weeks.
Report back in 1 (one) week.
Sounds goo 'Scuse me mam, report from Analyst Eli coming in!
Heeh? Republic Intel Analyst Eli? ImpA character? Tracks the DMR?
Republic Intel Analyst Eli's report:
Local security forces on Draconis 42-3 have begun organized search of the desert areas with the aid of Agent Hiss and "Offworld Contractors", surveillance drone image attached.
This image shows the "Offworld Contractors", Agent Hiss and an experimental transport in action against a suspected DMR encampment. Upon inspection it appears that the DMR are the "Offworld Contractors" and Agent Hiss has successfully infiltrated the group. Unfortunately I have received no communications from Agent Hiss, and the locals have hired the very gang we seek. My contact from Draconis 42-3 did however identify their leader in the image but referred to her as "Lady D'Muse".
Annotated image with enlargements attached.
Woho! It's official! I'm happy with him, my friend is happy with him and EDC has confirmed we're not just total weirdos! Independent review is always good. Just a quick update today, Chaplain Noh'Nay'Muh has GLOW-Y, his base is sculpted, and Bloodfire has seen some progress.
