Space Wolf Achievements!

So I woke up this morning to something unusual in my email. Skarvald the Troll-faced over at Wolves for the Wolf God has been a busy little bee. He has whipped up some Space Wolf Achivements. If you have played any video games in the past few years you know what achievements are.

I'm not going to go into much detail of what the achievements are. I don't want to go through them and then have you go through them again when you pop over to WftFG to read the full post (you will go read the article wont you?)

Space Wolf Forge World Dread: Done!

I've been slowing down on my hobby lately. I went from having a month of posts ready to go to nothing. I am currently writing this on the 19th and it will be posted on the 20th, and I got nothing for the 22nd. 

Anywho, I finally finished the tiny little bits on my Space Wolves Forge World dreadnought. I really haven't seen too many of these painted on the internet, but I think it looks pretty awesome.

So with my new Grey Knights army, I have decided I have such a low model count, I was going to splurge and buy resin bases for the whole army. I wasn't sure what I wanted until I heard about Fantascape on the Screaming Heretic Podcast.

What I decided to go with was the Gothic Ruins. Now one of the reasons I really like these bases is because the prices on the website include tax and shipping, so even though I am buying from overseas, I don't have to worry about outrageous shipping prices.

So without any further adieu,

Space Wolf Forge World Dread: Part II

So a couple of  weeks ago I posted my four Space Wolves dreadnoughts and a week or so ago I posted an update on my Forge World Space Wolves dreadnought. This week I have another update on that same dreadnought.

So since last time, I have painted a lot of the details. In fact, I would say that the body of the dread is done. The only thing I really want to finish up on the body itself is the lense on the multimelta arm.

Book Review: The Outcast Dead

I've been having some bad luck with the Black Library lately. I haven't really liked the last two books I've read. Unfortunately The Outcast Dead is one of those books.

So this is the story of an astropath named Kai Zulane. he has had a bad year due to the fact that the last ship he was on had a Geller field failure and everyone on board died except him and the navigator. Due to the trauma of this, he can't seem to send messages anymore. So he is being sent back to (not yet holy) Terra to see if he can be salvaged as an astropath. If not, hes gonna be tossed into the astronomican.

One of the things I really didn't like about this story was that the main character seemed like a bit of a d-bag. I really just didn't like him. Ever. I have read books where the "protagonist" was kind of unlikable but usually there is some redeeming end to the story. I'm sure the author tried to do that, but I was really just fed up with Kai by the end of the story.

And the winner is...


This of course is in reference to the Inagural Three Color Minimum Inter-blog Give Away. Dave from Gone to Ground and I asked people to post a quote to go along with this picture.

And sonoftaurus won with the quote, "That'll do squid, that'll do."

So the lucky winner needs to head over to G2G and contact Dave so you can get your prize and I hope you have a very happy Orkzmas.

Did I Mention I Like Dreadnoughts?

I am totally going to use my love of Dreads as an excuse for being a cheesy bastard. I am planning to run three Grey Knights Dreadnoughts. 

So I bought one of the Forge World Grey Knights dread, and then bought the body for a second dread. Then I bought a Venerable Dreadnought because I thought I could make him look like a Grey Knight dread without too much trouble.

Space Wolf Forge World Dread: Part I

So here is my first swing at my Forge World Space Wolf Dreadnought. This model is soooooo cool. 

I've never really been one to think about blessings in disguise, but I think that it happened with this guy. He recently fell on the ground and shattered. The legs came off the base, and the two legs separated from the hips!

Now while the legs breaking wasn't all that great (although it was pretty easy to fix) it did give me a good reason to go back and paint things while he wasn't glued together.
