Another unit of Shifting Stones is complete. These are so damn easy to paint up, even with all the filigree and things of that sort.
Once again I took the easy way out and added flock instead of painting the moss stuff that is modeled on these. I even added some pretty red flowers to a base. What hard could theses stones do? They have pretty red flowers growing near them. Right?

Alright! Wolf Creek! I have heard it touted as an Australian Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Last House on the Left. It is also “based” on true events. Well how could I pass up that?
Three twenty-something’s (Ben, Kristi and Liz) are driving across Australia. Along the way they decide to go for a hike at the Wolf Creek national park. There is a sweet crater there to check out. When they return to their car it will not start. Uh oh! Now what? Well along comes a guy, Mick, in a truck who can give them a tow to his camp and fix their car. This seems sketchy, but this guy seems like a nice bloke or a Australian version of a redneck is how I saw him. He is friendly, calm and gives off a quasi- simpleton feel. They of course agree and off they go to his abandoned mining camp. Once there he treats them to some stories, a fire, food and water. This is where this road trip goes all akimbo.
|Hooray! Party then lets drive across country! What could go wrong?|

It always seems that I get upset with the people at; Titmouse Inc., Noodle Soup Productions, Astro Base Go! and Williams Street, when it comes to the Venture Brothers. This show started in 2003 and in 2015 we have only 5 seasons (someday 6).
Then the collective “they” give a tidbit now and again to remind us that they still are up to something. This keeps the masses placated and my annoyance and near rage subsides.
Then a night comes along and the collective Venture creators throw out an episode or two. This night I anticipate like X-mas! Why? Well because this show is awesome and always seems to bring me a euphoric feeling that only heroin or crack could palely mimic.
“All this and Gargantua-2” premiered Monday night.

The legions of space marines are in a violent civil war. There have been horrendous losses on both sides. The Warmaster is marshalling his forces. The Emperor is silent. The legions loyal to him are either on Terra or stranded in space. Lines have been drawn. Everyone seems to know where everyone stands. Well….except for the White Scars, those crazy fast non-Mongol Mongols lead by quasi-Genghis Khan.
