T.V. bad/good

Two of my favorite television shows have been letting me down lately.

This season of Archer is weak sauce. There might be a single chuckle per episode, not the gut bust hilarity from seasons prior. I am very under whelmed. It was grabbed for two more years. Well her is hoping that it gets better next season!

The Walking Dead has been a drag this second half of the season. I just care less and less every episode. This is actually worse than the constant second season search for Sophia. At least then there was some tension. This second half is just kind of boring and I'm not really caring.

SyFy's Helix is a mess of viral outbreak, plague zombie, shiny eyes and secrets, secrets, secrets . I was not super impressed.

I tried Chozen and after two weeks I walked away. It just like another take on East Bound and Down, but with a rapper instead of a baseball player. Meh!

This thing looks like fraking shite! Does every release get a drek model now? The land speeder D.J. booth, the Heldrake, Centurions, Khorne's Skullcannon, the Tyranid mouth barfer thing. 

Seriously? Is anyone loving this four-tracked truck thing?

Well at least there are plastic Stromtroopers after a decade.

Most fun book read in a while. Ready Player One.

While checking out from the local book depository I had the ever popular check out encounter. You know where they inquire about joining their card club, ask for some donation or other bit of general shenanigans. This time was different though. I was being profiled by the employee and he figured that I might like a novel that he was pimping.

The sheer arrogance of this guy! How does he know what I like? How dare he push a novel upon me! I mean what do you think a guy buying a Star Wars novel and Deadpool trades might enjoy?! The audacity!

Hordes game 5

Kaya and her warbeast have been on the trail of that loathsome troll Madrak for days. He has led his pack of beasts north into the snow covered forests in an attempt to circle around Orobors territory. I would have worked had the lumbering trollkin not have been spotted by a solitary druid stone keeper.

Kaya forced her beasts onward in hopes of catching up with the trollkin before he could escape to the west.

Kaya the Wildborn
Feral Warpwolf
Shifting Stones- Stone Keeper attachment

Madrak Ironhide
Dire Troll Mauler
Troll Axer
Pyre Troll

There is a quick setup, with a wintry theme, and a roll for deployment/ first turn. I roll low, but am gifted with 1st deployment and turn. We are playing typical first warlock to die loses.

You'll be missed Oderus

DAVE BROCKIE | March 23 (age 50) | GWAR's longtime frontman, aka Oderus Urungus, skewered the metal paradigm with creepy costumes, over-the-top antics and profane lyrics.

Oderus Urungus  or Dave Brockie, has been found dead in his Richmond, Va., home. So says a U.S.A. Today story. He was found dead Sunday night.

I missed two chance to see Gwar live and now maybe I'll never get another chance. I love their look, stage shenanigans and their music isn't bad either.

A damn shame.

Back to business

With the move complete and now just organization to complete, I'm back to posting stuff here.

Well it certainly took long enough to get a model for Horus!
Remember the halcyon days when Forgeworld would never make Heresy models? 
Yeah good call there. So far the Primarchs have all been pretty boss and The Warmaster is no different. A shame it just took Forgeworld this long to get their cranial-rectal inversion reversed.

More shooty trolls?

These have been popping up on the interweb now and I’m confused. Why and what is the role of these troll banditos?

There are shotgun trolls, machinegun trolls, sniper pygs, slug gun pygs, a mobile warbeast machine gun, a gun carriage, a cannon and two shooty warlocks. What is the role of these dual pistoleers going to be?

Will they deploy like Kossite Woodsmen? Will they just get advance deploy and/or pathfinder? Will they get combined ranged attack or a combo pistol strike?

I know these are a ways off from release, but I’m really confused on what their battlefield role is going to be. Especially, when there are a lot of shooting troll choices, that fill many niches, already.

Damn already?

Or is this interweb photoshop?

Is this what the season is building towards?
The Saviors?
We just got past the Governor and now possible Negan and his cronies?
Seems too soon. 
Why no Hunters story arc? That would be fun!
