"Mission: Drone Recovery"

This Tau Riptide was the first model where I tried lots of weathering and a diorama, and it came to mind for today.

I had in mind that this unit of Tau (the Riptide and Infantry) are part of an expeditionary force. Trapped on a planet with dwindling supplies, they are forced to recover damaged vehicles and equipment, like this drone.

Resharing a couple of finished magnetized movement trays from yesterday that I completed for my High Elf Reavers. Different to previous trays, I tried to theme these in keeping with the Reavers (ok, it's just some tufts of grass, but I tried!)
:-)
 
Quick project. Magnetic bases and movement trays.

Just finished up these bases and movement trays. I themed them to match my High Elf Reaver bases (long grass) and magnetized them using magnetic card from a "100 Yen shop" (Dollar store?) The movement trays are from Games Workshop.

I was careful to make sure the magnetic strips were in alignment, so even though not individually strong, I can good them upside down and they start firmly attached.

Help with Google Now...
... Recently, I don't get any Stories to Read or news of any kind, or info from my calendar (but I used to!). When I look at the cards in my settings, I just see a range of questions like ”are you interested in weather for your area?" (Or similar).

I thought that Google Now would give me more information...

Can anyone offer any ideas? Thanks!

A High Elf Noble on steed. I didn't receive the shield, so for the moment he will have to make do with just a lance! I think he might make a good General, and that he might add a bit of hitting power to my unit of High Helms.

"Throwback Tuesday"...
...yesterday I shared this in a different community for "miniature Monday", but hey, it's Tuesday now!
Here is my weathered Tau Riptide - at the time my first weathered vehicle.
Good memories!

I use sand. Whatever I use, I like to do that before priming, so I only need to do a bit of drybrushing and washes later etc!

...some movement trays for Warhammer Fantasy, finished yesterday for my High Elf Reavers.

A Games Workshop High Elf Noble, ready for battle! This took longer than I thought...mainly due to picking out each piece of scale armour in gold paint...

Good Ramen with a nice Miyamoto Musashi atmosphere provided by old movie posters.

Excellent food, with a very good buffet dinner. Be prepared to spend 3,500 to 5,500 Yen for the buffet, not including drinks. The food is complemented by great service, with an English menu and English speaking staff.

If you're a fan of anything by Studio Ghibli or Miyazaki Hayao got shouldn't miss this. About 20 minutes from Shinjuku by train and then 5 minutes by bus. Don't expect a big theme park, instead, look forward to a beautifully maintained and intricately detailed set of buildings and small moments. Stained - glass windows featuring Totoro, lavishly painted and detailed ceilings, the life size robot from Laputa, winding staircases and lots of other things await! (Even your entry ticket is a piece of celluloid with a Ghibli scene on it) Don't forget to book your tickets in advance and turn up on time...

A western themed bar just a few minutes from Meguro station, Little Texas has live music (check the site for schedules) food and drinks. When I was there we heard live Bluegrass by Ducky!

As with any restaurant, you'll find a wide variety of views on this nationwide chain! In my opinion, there is a lot to like, especially for a visitor to Japan, as the dining experience is a little unusual. It has the normal (for Japan) ticket vending machine, but it also has individual stalls at the counter that have partitions that can be opened and closed, and your meal is served through a small hatch in front of you. The ramen itself is pretty good. Not too oily compared to some, and you get a nice range of options upon sitting down as to how you'd like you ramen (spiciness, noodles, spring onions etc. etc.)

A well known Ramen restaurant about 5 minutes walk from Machida station (if you know the way...). The "Shiromaru" is recommended, or the "Shiromaru Special" (if you'd like a bit more pork and a boiled egg). Lunch service finishes at 3.00 if you want to order a "lunch set" (mini-dumplings and rice). A pleasant surprise was that the bottled beer was Kirin Heartland.

A good sports bar. Good food and friendly staff add to the overall positive experience. Just a short walk from the South exit off Ishikawacho station.
