Another day, another barge

Toiled through another Annihilation barge, well not really. This is a easy build and paint model.

The gaming group continues to take form.

Erevan the Eladrin Bloodmage

The artillery piece of the group and the go to when it comes to mass enemy destruction. If there is a herd that needs thinning out, then this is the elf to do it.
Also the only party member to gain the achievement "Friend Slayer."
Let us also not forget the habit for collecting these............

Cinderella was right......

........You really don't know what you got. 'Till its gone. They were just genius level band weren't they.

When Hostess imploded and went away I knew how the character of Tallahassee felt about the loss of the Twinkie.

If you haven't seen Zombieland then stop reading and go watch it!
Woody Harrelson is fantastic as the ass-kicking Tallahassee.

A new Herald of Khorne

Skulltaker my be the most lauded and feared of the Heralds of Khorne, be he is far from the  only one.

There is a creature that follows the blood god and leaves death and destruction in his wake. He is known to not only take the head of his opponents, but he will also remove flesh, bone, claws and fangs to wear as trophies.

Chaos review # 17 Spawn

What was a last codex zero has risen quite a bit in this new codex. They still are not must takes, but for what they are and their potential, the lowly Chaos Spawn has risen. This is nothing new. G.W. does this all the time with the new army books. What was super popular and awesome last book is now over priced (at best), has become obsolete or has become worse. Then there are the loser, lowly and all but unusable units that become pretty damn descent from the old to new version. The Chaos Spawn fit the second description.

Spawn come with the following stats: WS 3 BS 0 (Wow no gun and no BS! Hmmmmm why not more of this common sense?) strength and toughness 5, 3 wounds, 3 initiative, D6 attacks, Leadership 10 and no armor save. They are beasts and follow all their rules, which are pretty good. They are also Fearless, cause Fear (pfffffft!), have Rage, and are Very Bulky. They also have two special rules: Random Attacks and Mutated Beyond Reason. This is a squad of one to start, but can grow up to four more additional Spawn at 30 points each.

Blood Reaver review

The second Night Lords novel, Blood Reaver, has been finished. It is just as good and fun as the previous Soul Hunter novel.

Here we have the Night Lords lead by The Exalted (a fighting for control demon prince sharing and corrupting a Night Lord body), and the remains of the 10th Company of Night Lords he commands. The real star is still the 1st Claw and the quasi-non leader leader Talos and his rag-tag squad. They have survived the battle on the planet Crythe and escaped a bit worse for wear. After a quick raid on an Imperial space station they head to Hell's Iris to repair, rearm and recruit.

Through my years of existence I have found a place for giant robots: Transformers (the toys and cartoon, not the crap that came after), Robotech, Gundam 8th MS, Gundam Wing, Tranzor Z (as it was named in the U.S.), The Iron Giant, and Evangelion to name a few. I also developed a  fondness for monster movies: Them!, Godzilla, King Kong, Tremors, Cloverfield and the like.

Jump to now and out comes Pacific Rim. How can I not go see this as soon as possible as it has giant robots fighting giant monsters? The easy answer is I can't get there fast enough!

"Give us the girl. Wipe away the debt."

Bioshock Infinite I passed on for  some time. I wasn't impressed by the look and changes that were made. However, a few reviews and time got the best of me. I finished it yesterday and I'll be damned if it wasn't a great game!

The 5th of July

The day after pile of used doom. This is minor compared to the previous years but time , "safety" and location were issues. There was a lot of smaller fun stuff like the mushrooms, the battle tanks and various exploding creatures.

Another successful 4th of July and I return with my eyebrows and all fingers attached.
Now to clean up this mess.

Star Wars exhibit Saturday

This is running ant the Indiana State Museum this summer, and I had to go. This was a really cool exhibit. Seeing all the costumes and props was fun. The best stuff was the models. A a guy who likes to build and paint "toys" they were amazing to see up close.

My ideal weapons locker!
(Well lose the Naboo blaster)

Chaos review #15 the lame jumpers

Well there is a second jump pack equipped unit of crazies for Chaos, and they are the Warp Talons. These are a mix of Marine and demon for some reason. However, they are nowhere near the demon Marine combo that the Possessed are. They are basically just Chaos Marines with some demon rules and back story. By the way, I think they are a pile of suck!
