You are a machine Nappen... dang I think I need a need computer screen. I am using my sister's computer and realize that you have a rampant lion as your avatar, and not a ninja in a crane pose.

It is that standard bit around them that they all have...it may even be on purpose, I just didn't like it.

Actually it is a cave bear with bloody claws, but I like the ninja idea...It may have to become a ninja bear :)

Today, just a bit on the weapons for my small package project and caulk on a 6X4 and a 4X4 piece of canvas to make battle mats.

Busy day today. Did the soulder plates on my wyche squads, painted up the craters that I primed, finished up most of my small package build and got the base coat done on my mycetic spores for my son's Christmas present.

Since this photo, I have added matt varnish to the weapons stations and to the spores I have finished the rocks and started the metal on the back. The green will match up with his tyranid colors when it is done-but have a lot of blood and gore too :) I put a broodlord underneath for an example of his colors.

Thanks, all.

Not much today, just a wash on the metal on the spores and the last bits of touch up on the small package group build. May try to do a bit more tonight while watching either Dr. Who or the Walking Dead.

Spent the morning laying wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery. Very touching and good for the kids to get some perspective and do a little volunteer work.

Finished the two mycetic spores and did some more caulk on the battle mat. My 9-year old is doing the texturing with some foam from a pluck foam tray and a plasic grocery sack. She is having a blast.
