I haven't done anything to the white armor yet. It's just primer. White goes last.

Thanks spudkins!


Well... "The Road to Adpeticon" has been temporarily derailed by "Fallout: New Vegas". I'm here at work after 3 hours of sleep after playing until 2 AM... ouch... haven't done that in a few (dozen) years. Will get back to painting tonight. Had a fun little game with Thing 2 yesterday. Bat rep will follow.

Good to take a break from the game once in a while.. I got a couple hours in on Dead Island this week as well and got in a good chunk of painting.

Thanks for letting me advertise.

Hopefully thing 2 will learn that he need to press his advantages as well as it’s ok to lose a few guys. Seems like he did good putting the pressure on you. Good job Thing 2! Imagine if he was rolling well! ouch.

Yeah, the Vindi should have died in turn 2 and if he'd chosen better he could have probably killed both the Apoth & Tycho in assault. He got the points for them anyway though so I guess it didn't matter in the end.

Hey Gits, are you planning on entering the Armies on Parade this year? (or is it more of a UK thing?)

Not sure what "Armies on Parade" is... but I think the nearest GW store is in like... Chicago. Don't think any of the FLGS stores participate (never heard of it anyway).

its an event where you make a display board for your army. the army doesn't have to be legal. then yyou take it to a GW they pick a winner and all the winners from all the gw are invited to gamesday where the winner will be crowned

the banner is click able. it takes you to a magical country. if you don't believe me click and see for your self

Yeah, as fatty said.
Basically the only rules are that you have to include 1 HQ and 2 other Units on a 2'x2' board.

It's pretty cool, allows you to get all creative like. I'm entering for the first time this year.

Hey gits just a thought on your yellow. I been searching through your blog and for the life of me cant find how to do it. i know you start with a white base coat, then do you start layering yellow afterwards? im trying to paint yellow and kinda failing miserably at it. was just wondering about that.

No problem DE... helps keep the thread alive and interesting in-between updates.

Not much to report... still recovering from my gaming marathon and lack of sleep. However the details are nearly done now. Once I begin the process of working on the white I'll post a pic.

I expect the guys at the Bunker (and every other official GW store) don't even know I exist. The Dakkasphere is a very small place... Adepticon taught me last year that my "footprint" is actually very small. But I do appreciate the thought!

Sounds like a call to do the first MW caption contest.....?

Good idea brother!




Announcing the first-ever MANTIS WARRIOR CAPTION CONTEST!



Contest Rules: Make your best caption to the picture above. Keep it clean, but other than that it's wide open (so feel free to praise or slander my MWs... as long as its clever).
Contest length: Submissions will be accepted for 2 days. The contest will close at 7 PM central time on Thursday. (no idea what that is GMT)
Judging: By popular acclaim... I'll set up a poll or something after the submission period ends.
Contest prize: Yes, there will be a prize. The winner gets "naming rights" for my new Apothecary! WIP below. All I ask is that you pick a real-sounding name... not an unintelligible string on internet characters. (OK, I admit it's not MUCH of a prize... but hey, it's better than a sharp stick in the eye)



That's it... let the chips fall where they may!
