While I'm laid up, reading some miniature related material. Goes into a lot of depth and methodologies add opposed to just paint by numbers manner.

Talking about reading challenges. Talking about why I read. Talking about why you should read. Talking about potential impact of reading only a certain type of fiction for a year. Let's hear some feedback peeps.

With my back problems it's taking me forever just to get a base coat on. Bones are Zandri dust, clothes steel legion drab, hilts dyrad bark and metal old bolt gun all over a runny coast of imperial primer.

Thanks for sharing. It's always fun to see how people handle the work. Nice job on the airbrush. In terms of putting the Cryx Bane Knights together, how fiddy were you say they were? I find some of the Privateer models very annoying. Do you ever use gloves? I find a boxed set of plastic gloves I bought at Sam's Club lasts a looong time.

I use gloves when I actually remember to use them  :) .  These Bane Knights required some pinning, and if I had more incentive, I would have replaced the shafts on the halberds with metal rods.  They're so bendy!

This is a nice tutorial and a quick read.
As you no doubt know, if you've been following my painting adventures, I picked up the re-release of Space Hulk back in December. It was a choice that was an unquestionable yes, even if it could have been looked on by some as...

I included my 'role playing' circle on this, because I'm thinking of Gen Con in Indiana in particular.

Recently in America, it was rules that corporations are people.

And now we have some actions to push freedom of religion.

Does anyone see a potential huge conflict of financial and religious freedom while somewhere 'normal' people are just shaking their head wondering why we can't all get along?

For example, what if Gen Con pushes to break it's contract under it's 'Corporations are People' bit because they feel like they are being discriminated against on religious grounds?

The Atrocity Archives By Charles Stross is the first fiction volume in the Laundry series. This is a Call of Cthulhu series that has it's own RPG by Cubicle 7. I ran several games at Gen Con over the years for Cubilce 7. Very different than the 'standard' Chaosium runs. Fun stuff and on sale for $1.99: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000OIZUIA/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=211189&creative=373489&creativeASIN=B000OIZUIA&link_code=as3&tag=modappn-20&linkId=BSPJ5N3H3Y5EYFN7

A Reaper Bones Hill Giant. Base added. Tried to keep it in the Reaper skirmish game size for Warlord. He's much larger than most miniature companies version of a hill giant.

The army painter primer is a huge time saver when dealing with one predominant color. I think Michigan Supply had the whole life on sale.

This cushion helps the discomfort some but my problem is too severe for full pain relief on the back.

Lindsey Davis third saga of Falco in Ancient Rome is another solid character study that makes the era come alive.

Long time role player of various games that started with the old FASERIP from Marvel Super Heroes to more modern games like the dreaded 4the dition Dungeons and Dragons.
Introduction

I've lived in Chicago most of my life. I've been a man whose slowly but surely coming to realize that going out to eat is killing me with the massive amount of sodium fast food places put in everything. I'm relatively normal in that I work, enjoy the old social media and have a few nerd hobbies like reading about historical warfare and painting miniatures and playing role playing games. I'm old enough to remember when a phone was something attached to the wall and grew up with a very real fear of getting nuked by Russia.

This apartment complex suffers a bit from having tenents who stay up all night. For example, at Midnight on a Sunday, they are out being loud on the back porch. Trying to get any resolution from ASAP and you may find yourself doing as others have and moving out.
