it doesnt quite like wire me up but keep my on the edge for a while longer, kinda like when ur just uncomfortable so u cant sleep, which when i do it for this length actually murders my sleep and sometimes my health will take a turn, but my hands are always steady until i get angry, then i shake like a madman.

ugh, had a gordon ROYALLY piss me off today, decided to pull out of a contract with me because our agreement stated that his project was to be in stasis until I get a different person's done, which is reasonable, im only 1 person, i cant paint an entire army than be expected to do it again the NEXT day, so he pulled out thinking he can do it himself with no problem, saying some very rude and indiscriminate things... so we were doing a trade system so that he didnt have to pay real money (he thought it wasnt reasonable for me to use the things he gave me until i was all done with the commission), well, my salamanders now went from 3 tac squads, a command squad, 1 assault squad, and 2 rhinos, to 2 tac squads, a command squad, and an assault squad... i cant even play now... so, that kinda sealed the fate of 40k in my life... im most likely done and will quit now.

sorry if my rant seemed out of place, I kinda like to use this thread as a way to vent alittle bit when im stressed with the painting or whatever since everyone knows its easier to vent when no one knows who you are.

I think tomorrow its about time I got out my vampire counts cuz i really wanna get back into fantasy and i think with the fact that to get my 40k army able to play again ill have to drop around $150 its time i did the swap and stuff... along with my vampire counts being repaired (my cat loves the point bits, i can fix it!) i will be painting some menoth, some brittania, some cygnar, and stuff like that.

OKAY! I kinda feel like our little piece of the forum is starting to die and it makes me really friggin sad. We used to be posting daily and now some people have not even posted a progress in months... sad panda.

well, I guess its my job to keep this going!! TILL THE LAST MAN!!!

WELL! I got the rest of my vampire counts out, repaired, refinished, and im gonna get them started again. ALSO I have found out something amazing about GW.... they have given up on Warhammer Fantasy and keeping their promise to kill online sellers. Amazon has EVERYTHING that is NOT 40k on the cheap. I can get the Battalion for Daemons of Chaos for $100, which is like $25 less than GW, and like $60 less than just buying the boxes. HELLS YAH! :D And since I already got a Skulltaker model painted and lookin SICK it shall begin.

you know I have looked at the new 40k rules, and I think its going to be soooo hard to play casually now and actually have fun, so I really am happy that I have given up on it, and with Amazon having all fantasy stuff on the cheap, I have a huge re-invigoration for Fantasy, so I am happy I am making it my main GW game (Warmahordes will always be my main game period)
