Herro! Welcome to the virtual tabletop painting & gaming year
Well I know I'm all over the shop with attendance and real life - but it's the small things making me happy.
I'm now on coat o' orange, coat o' red and coat o' orange on some models.
Damn they're bright. A little tangerine - so maybe one or two more coats of red and it's gonna pop-POP-POP
And I think I'm getting better at distributing the ink.
NINJA EDIT: Don't think my camera doing the change justice!?!
Might even complete in under a year
Zoom!?! - just zapped my phone battery to dead... see y'all in two weeks...
I'd say it's been fun.. but..
I'll have a look tomorrow - Zoom just sapped all the battery life out of my phone!?
i can have a look.. but mine would all be ancient ones... there's probably 30 or 40 unfinished models you could have.. I have around 100 chaos marines fully painted....
I always did enjoy this.. but could never source any models...
Aren't you all supposed to be a little more ascerbic?
Thanks - Sunday I'm out for dinner with long term friends who need catching up.
I'll pop for a brew Friday after blood donation.. last time worst effect was a numb forearm.
Many thanks for the kind words.
Life is just a ride....
Well to be honest that post is the sanitized edited for public release version.
I could right 3 books on what I found out.
It's like a Russian Doll of lies.
And I'm really preferring not keeping secrets right now.
Only my counsellor & solicitor have heard worse stories.
Thankfully I never got her pregnant.
I should be able to keep the home I've built for 5 years
But for now I'm relying on a counsellor to help me deal with what I found.
Absolutely everybody else who's known us together for 12 years has gone "WTF!?"
Yeah I need to get back to club - my Rogue Trader bud said as much to me at Xmas.
My head just isn't calm enough to sit still and paint. Been doing a LOT of exercising...
Right now I've given myself 2 weeks off work to sort out the possessions in the house and catch up with things like posting here. Just making sure I do something every evening.
I may be able to get down next Friday - but I'm giving blood in the afternoon - sometimes makes me drowsy after.
Yes I'm giving blood on Valentine's Day - that was intentional!
...Sorry I've kind of disappeared.
To be blunt I've caught my wife having 7 affairs over last 2.5yrs, plus multiple dodgy 'friends' conversing in ways I never would have tolerated - some of whom I never even met or heard of!? - and lies she's been telling me for 12 years.
Right now I've got through the worst - it's all with the solicitors now.
It's been messy.
Once I know were I'm at I'll pop down again...I've got two weeks now stripping the house out of her stuff.
It's like I rolled 36 dice and got all 1s.
Thankfully I have some solid family & friends.
Shaun aka Ming
Sunday works for me? what time?
Ey-up - is my next fixture Adam - Adamaldred? Ta muchly
Andy forgot to add on the crowd actually rioting at 2nd half kick-off post Princeling Betram's unreal death trip - taking up the entire 1st turn of the second half for both of us!?
Sounds right up my street!
Erm... my models aren't even based yet - can I get a club loan?? I'd like to stick with Orkses just for 'lerning to noob' purposes
See y'all Friday!
Heh... in all seriousness the wife has offered for us to bring the whole club/gaming session down into the second arch in Wigan Central pub if anyone is interested? It would have to be a week night though!
Better still, will pop in to the pub, what was that Shaun free beer?.. good lad !
The wi-fey won't like what that'll do to the profits.. next time I'm free for club night is 9th - need to sort these ruined models out or play some BB
When life gives you lemons you're supposed to do something something.
I have been playing Blood Bowl, and have messed up my Super Dungeon Explore models, but real life family issues are pretty constant past few months. I've even been thrashed multiple times by the missus at Carcassone.
Every Friday Or Sunday I plan to pop something more urgent keeps rolling better dice.
I strangely do miss you weird lot.
So after confessing that I'm off to seek medical advice
Next two week is work shifts on game nights, so why not join me at work? :p
Very nice.. I'd planned to come down tonight - but my missus still hasn't collected her keys from her sister since our holiday.
So I'll be waiting in and inking more models.
Been too long since I've been down .. grrr
