Painting, painting, painting. For my last birthday almost a year ago, some mates gave me a "Campaign Weekend among Gentlemen" as a gift - i.e. they would write a series of narrative scenarios, provide for beers and food and we would play for one to two days non-stop. Really nice idea, and I got a gift coupon to properly arm myself, too.

As that weekend is (after some drawn-out planning among four members of the active work force) Saturday/Sunday in a week, I still have to get some Chaos stuff finished, so I blocked what free time I had in the course of this and next week and got to paint a bunch of models (mostly the cultists from DV, an squad of FW Death Guard and the Maxmini Siege Gun are the models I'll have to finish within the next few days).

Almost finished painting a Blood Raven librarian and I'm going to go to the FLGS to play in a bit. I might finish my captain and some tac marines when I get home.

Thought for the day: Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
13th Legion: 3000
Bolt Action Soviets: ~2000 pts
The Empire : ~60-70 models.
WMH CoC: 40 points (30 fully painted!)
1500 pts

I was due for terrain painting, though as one of my opponents have dropped out of the 7ombieTv game I had planned I now need to paint 30 zombies. Otherwise I'm writing up some rules for 7ombieTv.

Australia

I got a guy from the Spartan games vanguard program coming down to help out me and a couple of mates who have recently started Dystopian wars.
I've also arranged my first game of infinity and there is a chance another mate will show up with Flames of War later too.
As well I have the X wing starter set, the beta rules for Arena Rex, a mordheilm warband, a necromunda gang and I am contemplating throwing two of my battlefleet gothic ships in the car too in case anyone wants to play any of those.

Overall I'm hoping for a good, long day of gaming that doesn't involve 40k or WHFB at all for a nice change of pace

Oh, I certainly vote with my dollar, but the problem is that that is not enough. The problem with the 'vote with your dollar' response is that it doesn't take into account why we're not buying the product. I want to enjoy 40k enough to buy back in. It was my introduction to traditional games, and there was a time when I enjoyed it very much. I want to buy 40k, but Gamesworkshop is doing their very best to push me away, and simply not buying their product won't tell them that.

Last night I painted an Ogre Gorger (my first addition to that army in 3ish years).

Today I got 2 new Freebooter starters & a few blisters (now I'm only missing the newly released expansion starter) so I just finished assembling one of those crews.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to get a SDE hero painted - down to only 6 minis left to paint from the Roxxor expansion.

Speed Drybrushing






Chicago, Illinois

Been working on a small squad of Fallen to give my Noise Marine army some much-needed AP2, using a spare Rhino I had and a few of the old metal Dark Angels models. With the Black Legion supplement, it even lets me field Cypher as an HQ instead of just a squad champion (also making the unit, fielded as Chosen, into Troops).

I browsed Dakka on and off for awhile, sorted through my week's hobby loot - a big pile of wood and high elves, some vostroyans, 3 1/48 challenger tanks, 3 Eldar Falcon kits and a bunch of old Warhammer Armies books from eBay, a Rogue Trader RPG book from Book Depository.

Sorted out a bunch of hobby-related files and PDFs on my PC. Wrote up a new blog post for some painted Bones models and posted some pics on three forums after cropping and resizing them in photoshop.

Might play some X-Wing with my wife later tonight and attempt to teach her (some of) the advanced rules..

Kirasu: Have we fallen so far that we are excited that GW is giving us the opportunity to spend 58$ for JUST the rules? Surprised it's not "Dataslate: Assault Phase"

I'm beginning painting on 6 shoota boyz, 8 slugga boys w/Nob, a Black Reach Warboss, and Mek w/ kustom-blasta from the Lootas set to add to some existing Ork boar boyz (an old Gorkamorka project) and a mob of Rebel grots (also from Gorkamorka) to make a fledgling 2nd edition 40K army.

Primed them Armypainter angel green, and just got done drybrushing a lighter green on all the skin, production line style.
