Half an hour away from my Kings of War game with Porkus.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Might be worthwhile asking some people with Mantic collections - every sprue of Orx has some of these small 'orcling' style things, and anyone who has collected an army of Orx probably has a ton of them unused that they will probably have no use for. I've probably got several bases worth just sitting around in my bits box.

This is what they look like..

Nothing today.

Last night I played my Tyranids vs Tau. Was a great game.
Turns 1-4 I was shot to pieces leaving only a Tyrannofex & Tyrgon Prime on the table.
Turn 5 my MCs kill two tanks including making a 12" charge! The Doom comes in and devastates his troops (rolls 17 for Leadership on one Spirit Leech!) .

His troops on the objective just survived to give him a 4-2 win (Warlord + 3pt objective vs First blood & Linebreaker).
Game ended, but really think I could have got that victory if it went another turn.

But hey, it was a blast with lots of carnage. And they are the games I like, when everything dies on both side. And in the end my 'nids did me proud.

Apologies for talking positively about games I enjoy.

I feel you. I am now at 2 completed Orks today, with 15 still to go on my painting table. Urk. Could never stand assembly style painting, so I do them one or two at a time.

Sidney (Home of Nothing), OH. USA

I've got 40 Saurus to finish up and attach the shields to, then 30 Skinks, all for a commission. A unit of DW knights tip knock out with Belial & Azreal (when I can't stand to look at another Lizardman for a while), and I've got at least 4 (maybe 8!) mycetic spores to pour and clean for a couple of my fellow Dakka-ites. Oh, and then there's all of my stuff I want to get done too! No rest for the wicked, eh? Lol!

WarPaint Miniature Studios is currently accepting select commissions! PM if interested!

Same here, only aggravated by nerve damaged hands, and a tremor in my right hand when I get tired.

4 left to go, then on to the next unit :(

I like building them, and playing with them, but painting is a chore...

I promised myself that I can do one of my Cronos engines next. Those I'm looking forward to painting.

Having revised my White Scars list to conform to the new Codex, I am now in the painful process of pulling apart old miniatures to swap wargear, etc.

I will also be airbrushing the interior of my Storm Eagle today and placing an order with GW Direct for more White Scars shoulder pads.

Time permitting, I should also go through my Bones Vampire box and see if anything's missing.

I'm from the future. The future of space

Today I'm looking at my 6mm sci-fi collection (same scale as Epic stuff, but I don't think any of it is GW) and putting together a couple forces to test out the Alpha Strike rules at the next gaming club meeting.

A local store has just gotten into miniatures by stocking the entire Reaper Bones line, so I'm going to go talk to the owner about doing a miniature painting club day at their store once or twice a month. Their primary gaming is Magic and board games and Pathfinder, so I'll probably start some sort of fantasy skirmish gaming there as well.

A points system is a tool to create balance. Let's use it to intentionally seek out imbalance in order to win and then blame the game designer for it not working!

Heading down to my FLGS to pick up some new goodies and then I'll work on my Imperial Fists legion praetor while I watch some football.

I worked overnight as well, so I might squeeze a nap in some time today too.

Tomorrow I'm going to be doing some more painting considering I've decided not to buy anymore stuff until I have everything else painted.

Also I'm going into town to buy some VGC cobra leather to use as a NMM gold basecoat.

Try to keep a blank page
But these memories they cloud my mind with grief
Faces lost forever
And the guilt of feeling some kind of relief
But when the end finally comes I won't despair
I'll just keep on hoping I might see you there

Magnetized a DV Terminator with lightning claw and power fist, converted DV Sergeant to have a helmet... Drilled barrel holes on a storm bolter (tricky!), and shaved DA emblems off of two plasma cannon troopers so as to run them in my Devastator squads. Didn't seem like much at the time, but written down it's surprising how much I got done in that hour...
