Obviously I haven't completed my pledge (again :() cause I was pretty sick the last few days. I'm going to visit family over Easter so I'll try do a bit of painting today.

The rest of this thread will be off topic so if you're just here for the pretty pictures, move along :P

Pretty sad to hear the news about the MWG store and everything but I look forward to their future :) I might try and get a vault membership at some stage. Recently I've been in a good mood about pretty much everything no idea why :D

Played my first game of Warmachine on Vassal on Tuesday. 25 points against Menoth. It went badly but I had fun. Oh well, I wasn't expecting to win it being my first game and all! :wink: We never finished the game cause at the very end he lost connection and I had to leave but it was quite clear that he would win. I might get a box of Widowmakers soon, loved using them in the game! I might also have a guest article on a noobs entrance to Warmachine on http://threediceoverload.wordpress.com/
an Irish Warmachine Bog :) Check it out! There will be a wide variety of articles on there.

On my Tyranids, I've decided I'll stick with Hive Fleet Kraken for now. Still need to buy more paints and in terms of models, a Tervigon, 5 more Termagants and a Hive Guard will bring me to 1000 points then I will leave Kraken probably forever and Tyranids for a while. I'll do a different Hive Fleet when/if I come back to Tyranids. My ideas for 40k are to create my own armies chapters/hive fleets/legions/kabals/craftworlds etc. with their own fluff. Warren fro Beast of War inspired me and rekindled my love for the 41st millenium with his 'Gaming in the Gaps' article he did a while back.

YouTube account is still coming soon......

Once I finish my 2013 Goals (page one), I might start some other wargames, get two starter boxes and a rulebook and start getting people into the game all in my Hipster Wargamer movement! :P
Currently I'm looking at Dystopian Wars, Dark Potential, Malifaux and Batman the miniatures game.

What have I been watching? Just started Game of Thrones and am still watching and enjoying The Following, Community, The Walking Dead and Arrow (just for fun)

That's all for now!! See you all later!

Curahee!

I'm a huge GoT fan, I've read the series through a few times. I can't wait for Sunday ;) I also love Community, Dan Harmon was a cowriter for one of my favorite comics: Scud the Disposable Assassin.

I've gotta do some YouTube work myself. Vassal, gotta do Vassal so I get more games in...

Fear not, I'm back! :D
Haven't got anything done over the past few weeks. Life is really getting busy at the minute. However I am inspired to do some hobby work again. Today I might get a start on clipping bits from all the frames that have built up into some bank bags to keep for the future. I still need to finish base coating my Juggernaut, hopefully this week. If the weather is good at the weekend I'll also get the primer out and spray my Infinity stuff. Gaming wise I still haven't done anything but I will be attending a 25 point Warmachine tournament in a couple of weeks. No that does not mean I have more models, a local guy is lending me some :wink:
So that's all for now pics are coming soon I swear!
Curahee!

Finished clipping all those frames. I have bags for:
Warhammer Fantasy:
Beastmen
Dwarves
The Empire
Lizardmen
3 full bags of Orcs & Goblins bitz
Tomb Kings
Wood Elves

40k:
Dark Eldar
Imperial Guard
Orks
Space Marines Tau

Only a couple of pieces for most of those though. Still have loads more frames to go through, will get them down from the attic soon.
Right now I'm just watching some stuff, Revolution (It's terrible but addictive), Modern Family, Matt's latest Sit & Talk, a bunch of wargaming vids including this documentary I found:

So yeah :) Fun night ahead of me. Might break out some paints at some stage. Oh and I'll also be lurking these forums so feel free to say hi :)
Curahee!

I organize all my bits too, probably a bit OCD on that. I used to have them down even better, for example I even had left and right handed shootaz separated. Unfortunately that kind of organization takes up a lot of space and I was getting in trouble with the Missus ;)

Hey guys! Haven't been up to much lately. Been busy with exams starting Ian few weeks and what not. On Sunday I managed to play in a 25 point Warmachine tournament! :) Tournament report will be up soon. I also picked up some Khador tokens, some templates and a box of Widowmakers! I need to get painting again and I need to find out what's with this ventrilo thing...
See you all soon!

Hey everyone!
Enjoying Ventrilo! Is it gonna stay up after this week? I certainly hope so! Will use it a bit over the Summer cause right now I'm extremely busy! Not much time left for painting now with exams starting on the 5th of June! I'll try and get a small amount of hobby work done at the weekend. What time I have I just want to relax and watch something or browse these forums....
More updates soon! I want to get the activity level on this thread up :P
Curahee!
