++++INLOADING DATAFILE 028++++ Another article soon.

Sorry for the parcity of posts, I decided that I needed to organize and sort all my bits into seperate containers by type.  As I have two bits trunks, yes not boxes but full trunks, this is taking a bit longer than I had originally intended.  I'll see if I can't finish it out tonight, and I'm also reserving my copy of dark vengeance tonight.  Simply wow on those models, especially the chaos ones.  If anyone wants to sell their spare chaos guys I'll take them off your hands, just saying...

Sadly I now feel showed up.  I was so proud of my dark apostle and now GW creates evil incarnate in a set of minis.  So I'm going to see if I can't dark vengeance-icise him and my next truescale.  Oh well, it's nice to have a new challenge.

++++INLOADING DATAFILE 027++++ True Scale Dark Apostle


Ok, jokes aside I'm super proud of how this guy has turned out. A week or so ago I deleted all of the games from my computer, I actually zeroed out the partition that had them. Its tough when something becomes an addiction to quit cold turkey, but I did what I had to. And now one week later I've got a job in my chosen profession and I've churned this guy out in my free time. Funny how that works.

++++INLOADING DATAFILE 026++++ Interceptor 1 (Suggestions requested...

Ok quick post tonight.  For a long time I've wanted to convert a high tech aerospace fighter that fits into the same family of vehicles design theme wise as all other space marine flyers.  The problem of course being that I could never actually come up with a working and feasible design.  This caused me no end of stress as when my muse can't figure something out it gets angry.

So tonight was one of my muse possession nights, the kind where I suddenly know how to make something and have a physical NEED to make it.  After 5 hours of doing my conversion savant thing without anything approaching a plan this is what I've come up with:

++++INLOADING DATAFILE 025++++ Where Do We Stand, Where Do We Go 1

Taking a page out of some other blogger's books, this is the first of my hopefully monthly "state of the blog" posts, where I'll recap stuff and talk about upcoming projects.  Skip down to the pictures if you want to skip my excuses.

The first thing you'll note is that I've been rather scarce for the last few months.  That's because ever since I got back from Iraq I've been going pretty high steam with work, a 3 week training exercise, school for 3 months, and another 3 week exercise. I'm now back from my last annual training for the year ('Why would you have more than one "Annual" Training event a year Jon' you ask?  I don't know I just do what they tell me.), and now for the first time in 7 months I have a genuine overabundance of free time.  Now that the final one is done I'm effectively free of the National Guard for the next 7 weeks, so lets get do some converting shall we!

While I was in Kentucky for training I had a chance to see an old friend's collection of minis for sale, included in them was this:
