July in review.

So I won't lie, I haven't gotten anything done this past week for my models. Starcraft 2 came out, and I've been busy playing it. Also, I found out my Desktop computer cannot handle playing starcraft 2, So my next purchase for my marines is going to be pushed back so I can get a new desktop. Playing on my laptop just isn't fun.
I realized that with out an upcoming tournament, my motivation to finish my models seems to be gone.
Hopefully next week I'll have something to actually post.

The next day

So I foolishly stayed up too late, and overslept for the tournament I was planning on attending. There was no entry fee so I don't feel to bad, but I did really want to make it to it. So instead I focused most of my day exercising, dodging attacking birds, and working on my models. Yes, I got attacked by a swarm of swallows for no reason, I wasn't even near a tree. They chased me for two apartment building lengths.

But enough of that, Here is the picture I posted yesterday, showing where my collection stood.
Before (above) and After (below)
As you can see, I've made some decent progress. I'm trying to do as much as I can on the vehicles before tuedsay. Yes, tuesday, the day we are all waiting for!

That's right boys and girls (but probably mostly boys) Starcraft 2 comes out tuesday!
I will try to post something tomorrow about all the fun things I'm going to do. And if I don't play all night long, I might post about Starcraft 2.
So stay frosty and we'll see what I come up with next.

Oops, ...Day10?

So I have been slacking, I know. Wednesday I had the guys come over, and we did a sealed draft for M11. I'm not really getting back into Magic, but I like to keep up to date on everything. I normally give about Twenty dollars budget per set to have fun. So that took up my Wednesday update, Friday.... I was busy packing to get up to my apartment. When I finally got up here, my roommates had gotten a new wireless router,...and forgot to tell me the password. But now I am up here, with no TV nor video games. So here is my plan...

The Founding; Day 6, Death Company

So while I've been working on my army for this coming weekend, I managed to get a game in yesterday to test out how well my list plays. Ok, So pretty much my basic list right now looks like this;
Lib (sword and Shield)
5-man DC with one powerweapon
Redeemer, MM.
5-man Assault squad, Flamer
Godhammer LR

5-man Assault squad, Meltagun
Razorback, HB, Hk
5-man Assault squad, Meltagun
Razorback, TL H-Flamer, Hk
5-man Assault squad, Meltagun
Rhino (suicide squad)
Landspeeder Typhoon
Landspeeder Typhoon
 1,500 points
Nothing amazing, nothing incredibly Blood angel dependent. Fast rhinos and DC are the only real things that separate this list from Vanilla marines. Back to the game, It was a 2v1, 3k each side.

The Founding; Day 3, Rise of the Drachen

As you can tell, my APC has turned out a lot better than it was a day ago. On Day 1 I started painting this tank, which is the first tank I've ever painted. It took three layers of watered blue to get a smooth look, and I am very happy with the results.

The Founding of a Chapter; Day 1, painting a tank.

So I got off work and decided to take it easy for a few hours. I played some video games and just surfed the web for a while. Then I checked my blog, thus reminding me I was supposed to post today (wednesday, seeing as it will be after midnight by the time I hit post). So I grabbed some of my "finished" assembled products, went outside and grabbed some bug repellent, (not a nid joke, the bugs were biting bad tonight) and my primer and sprayed away.

A need for Discipline

So while I've been practicing painting my chaos marines, I've been secretly working on a clone army. The Tyranid FAQ was the final push to make me start a new army, and I've been working a lot and making a decent amount of money. "And as my first act with this new authority, I will create a grand army of the Republic to counter the increasing threats"

Those interesting scenarios

As I promised, though a little later than planned, I have a summary of the missions from the 500pt tournament. They were all well written and the TO got many compliments on them.

All games were played on 4' by 4' tables
