Yes. My wife is also trying to break the news to me slowly that this might be a permanent addition . I know Grammy has been having issues lately, but she has fallen a couple DOZEN times in the last week, all news to me. Once again we are the only children who can handle bringing her into the house as one brother in law has his own health issues and their mother in law to take care of and the other brother in law just recently divorced and has a two bedroom apartment which he just moved if girlfriend in with him.

Hopefully the hip replacement allows her to bounce back quickly, but other issues have become more apparent as this has occurred. Luckily Lilly is really looking forward to moving into the basement. Not sure she will enjoy it once she tries it out, but we will have to see how it goes.

Good luck with that. It's a lot ofchaos but family comes first.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

I'm sorry your plans got dashed like that Theo. I hope things become more smooth and easy for you and your family. Congrats on page 100 anyway, you are doing the right thing.
Maybe the new goal for page 100 should be to fill the entire thing thing up with words of encouragement to you? No hobby pictures until page 101 at the earliest?

Grandmas under the knife right now. She qualified for a procedure that actually has people up and walking on the new hip the same day, even just hours later . Hopefully she bounces back quickly. Not only to get her out of our house, but because she loves her freedom and ability to get out and about.

Plus I really want my basement painting area back . I was just getting into a good spot with hobby skills feeling good and such.

So 100 pages. I had to try and come up with something, still struggling, but I went back to my old thread which I had locked. The older one went to page 198, but on page 100 I had purchased a couple of Leviathans from Dreamforge Games.



Even had him wired with lights.



Fantastic kit that allows the model to be reposed with the friction fit parts and the arms swap back and forth.

I am not as thrilled now with it's old paint scheme, but I believe I still have one unassembled which might be a good project. I could also assemble the resin version from years before that and possibly have these guys as a Knights army for 40K.

One of the kits I was unable to get back then were the female troopers that they put out for the Eisenkern. But luckily Marc has had them remastered by WGA and have just begun shipping, so I may have to grab a few of them to go with the other troopers I have. The scale is nice and the armour looks just good enough for a soft vacuum suit, so maybe make a Stargrave crew from the troopers. Not really a great plan, but I think a few chops and alternate heads and we can have a few non-human crewmembers and cyborgs. Possibly throw in some of the BtGoA Concord and Algoryns for good measure. It's a culmination of a few different lines, but might just do the trick.

While I'm contemplating things, I am still on the edge about buying a subscription to the Warhammer+ APP. The animation isn't that great, but thinking about it some more it's actually a decent deal. If I buy the 1Year subscription $59.99 American money by 08/31/21 and keep it thru 10/01/21 at least then I get a $16 GW Voucher. If I keep the app for one year, then I get a Free exclusive model (I'll take that Warboss please) which the normal stock one is $40.00 and I don't think they will charge shipping for it, so between those two things I have $56 of my $59.99 back, plus I get access to the 40K app and the soon to be reforged AOS APP. Still not completely swayed, but most likely will get it by this weekend.

So What do you guys think about the Stargrave Idea for a crew? Has anyone looked at the rules for a plan themselves? I hear Grenade Laucher is a pretty good choice and luckily they have those on the Eisenkern sprue .

I was able to get a box of the Eisenkern Panzerjaegerin a couple of years ago before they went out of stock everywhere and highly recommend them for EVA assault troops. I painted them up as the squad that rides around in the Athena C2V. The kits are excellent, with a lot of extra parts to let you customize the look you want. I hadn't thought of them for EVAs before, but your right- the pauldron and backplate leave a rim that looks very much how an exo-atmospheric helmet would lock onto, plus the head variants come with closed helmet, beret and (if I remember right) a couple of open face helmets as well. I ordered another box when Wargames Atlantic announced they were running the series again.

The weapons choices alone in the kit make them very versatile: heavy MG42 looking anti-tank rifles, SMGs, grenade launchers, panzerfausts, the lot. The backpacks even look 'outer-space-ish', add some maneuvering rocket venturis and you've got full-EVA troops for sure.

Looking forward to seeing what you make of them, if you go that route.

From what I remember, the backpacks housed a field generator and they would Drop into the combat zones. I looked at a crew builder app and thought I might make the leader a Veteran and his second officer a biomorph. Picturing Goose from Galaxy Rangers .

I subscribed yesterday and I'm not sure what the complaint is about the animation. Sure, it's not Marvel's What If or Studio Ghibli level, but the episodes are all pretty good. Old Bale Eye is probably the weakest of them so far

Okay, so thinking about the subscription I am leaning further away from getting it. The model comes after 1year, which is too long of a turn around for me with kickstarters, and I’m not really THAT impressed with it. I enjoy the lore more than anything, but there are enough others doing those videos and battle reports. Access to the AOS app is about the only thing I would want, but that’s just not enticing enough for me.

In other news, I started the printer up again today. Newfocus of only printing one item at a time until the next is painted.....sort of. I am printing a slew of helmets for the Stormcasts as a couple guys at the shop like mine.

I saw this guy on Facebook and had to print him for a second Warchanter for the Ironjawz.


While he was being washed and cured I assembled the Kruleboyz special sprue.


Guess they will be joining the Ironjawz after all, I was thinking no at first, but their style is growing on me.

Thanks guys. I think I have a drummer, or the options for one with the ‘Ardboyz. Not sure there would be a Keytar player or Bassist, but I’ll look for some files. Wasted weekend of waiting around for roof repair guy. Bad storm today so water just poured into our family room. Luckily my mother-in-law is still at the rehab facility, so she wasn’t here trying to “help”. Starting my new job on Tuesday of next week, Monday is a holiday here in the states, so I get a 3 day weekend before starting.

I do not want to sidetrack myself but as I do not have a hobby area to work in currently I was looking at Bushido again . I really like some of the newer snake people in the Ito Clan, especially this new lady.

So I am probably going to place an order very soon.
To set them up nice I ordered some Micro Arts Studio Forest bases off of the Miniaturemarket sale that ended today.

I stopped by the local shop yesterday and was trying to get the owner to look at Bushido as an option. I have mixed feelings about the store as I have had good relations with some of the staff, but like yesterday I had a very ambivalent reaction from the owner. To the point he walked away while I was talking to him without a word or any sign that I was bothering him or he didn’t want to talk anymore. Frustrating. Not like there aren’t 5 other stores within 30 minutes of me that I could go to , this is just the closest. Anyway, sorry for venting.

The Ito clan is full of Nagas, in fact the batch I’m going to order will have like 5 in it. They ar a clan that has been worshipping the Orochi, and they all are taking on aspects of snakes including the Blood of Orochi (poison in the veins), snake scales, spitting venom and a few guys who are reverse naga with snake heads and human bodies .

Akane (Model actually is very close to the art)

And the big snake themselves (Two HEads are better than one after all)

Long time little Dakka .

Whirlwind last two weeks. Sister started chemo, doing fine. Roof leaked, a lot, then literally crashed in on my head as i was taking pictures of it to send to the roofer. Mild concussion. Mother in law moved in post surgery on her hip, fell yesterday due to repair guys not keeping the debris confined, but nothing new broken. Ended my old job and started my new job , they still haven't given me computer access four days in and my trainer has been out all week with her husband having surgery and the other lady had taken today and yesterday off. Lots of phone answering and taking messages as I can't even do the training as that is part of the computer access that is restricted. Daughter started new Lacrosse season and she and her twin brother have both started the new school year. Both are also in an advanced school program where she will graduate high school with a clinical nursing license and he will graduate with auto mechanics certification, both alongside their high school diplomas. I'm sure there's more, but that's all my head can handle.

Back to page 100 stuff: Since all of this has waylaid me for a bit I was able to order the Dreamforge panzerjagers, I'll be picking them up tomorrow and hopefully get to assemble some this weekend. I have to organize that Stargrave crew sheet now. I also have to find some space dogs to print to go along with them. Probably nothing too outlandish as the troopers are pretty straight forward no nonsense looking figures.

Good luck Stargrave is great. Take it you ordered the Panzerjaegars from Wargames Atlantic? Be careful with the concussion as well, mild concussion is a mild brain injury after all....

Daughter is house sitting for a few days, so I can paint again without being yelled at for being in her area .

Not done by a longshot, but feeling good about the Gnashtoof.


I did pick up the Orruk rulebook, I have my eye on the mirebrute as well, but I have plenty on my desk as it is and a shipment of snakes are on a plane to me. Hopefully nick fury leaves them alone .

Thanks Graven , I had a hard time with choosing colors, but hopefully they all look “natural”

Thanks Cam, always glad to see you back and about.

So my wife and son just took grandma home . Big surprise as we thought she was moving in permanently, but the doctors gave her the green light to drive and take care of herself, so she is excited to go and see her cats. So hopefully that means my daughter will move out of my basement and back to her room and I can have all my space back.


In the mean time since daughter 2 is house sitting I got to paint before work this morning and a bit last night. I think Gnashy is all done, except for some basing. Point out anything I missed if you would.




Also I came home to a bunch of snakes in my house...which is great news.

The Ito Clan has arrived with the starter, the blessed bundle and more snake ladies than one should point a stick at.

I backed a Kickstarter called “Where legends stand” which is all 3D printed bases, comes with versions for toppers, magnets and square or GW new basing for 20 something styles. The files should download soon, but I might gust use the basing like I did for the Gnashtoof above for the Ito Clan.

Anyway, third week of the new job is done. First check, which isn’t much larger than my old job is in the bank, but it wasn’t even a full two weeks, so it should be better next time around . I only used a tank and a half of gas over two weeks instead of three tanks a week, so looking at saving close to $300 a month with this move and the insurance is so much better. Love the Doctors I work with, I loved most of the ones I was working with, but this crew is just so welcoming and we have a lot in common barring the age gap.

Also we have a Beep Baseball team , I might join it if it works with my schedule. Basically playing baseball blindfolded against a visually impaired team if I understand it correctly, sound fun and as we are the Ophthalmology Department it is a great outreach to people we serve.

More later as time permits. Also built some models for stargrave, but they will be back burnered until I paint up my Ito Clan.
