So if you’ve noticed, I haven’t posted a video in ages. Thus, tada, here’s the explanation and the affirmation that I’m going to go back to regular(ish) posting!!!
P.S – This was supposed to be up about a week ago but Youtube and Google Chrome fucked up, preventing me from uploading.
Yes, after causing you to suffer by reading that cheesy title, I’m assuming that you already have a good idea what this post might be on. If you don’t, then read on I suppose.
I will be speaking of the wonders of fiction in this post. No doubt you might have read such a post before or worse, had your English teacher preach this to you when you were young but either way, this is something I really wanted to post on.
Fiction. A word meaning anything that is thought up, with some or no actual basis in reality. One of humanity’s greatest use of our imaginative powers in my opinion. Also, Media. A method to broadcast any form of information to the masses through various technological means or word of mouth. Together, they form one of the greatest forces to reckon with on Earth.
Why am I writing about this you might ask? Well, it’s simple really. I adore fiction. Ever since a tender young age, I’ve been obsessed with reading, particularly books or novels. Not to brag but at age 8, I was reading books that even 12 year olds might have troubles comprehending. Maybe it was because of my circumstances growing up, but I was really introverted when I was much younger and spent my days with piles of books to comfort me. That paints a rather sad image eh but to me, it was the time of my life. Everyday was an adventure with new worlds opening before my eyes with every turn of a page
Well, since I am on my end-of-year holidays, I’ve decided that since I have loads of time, I should go and play some games. And so I did. Thus far, I have played 2 games and the score stands at me with 4 victories and JustinDent at 1 victory in total.
We played 1 annihilation match then a objectives match. I won the annihilation and JustinDent won the objectives match.
I have concluded after some analysis that the army list I have constructed is a Assassination Force. Pretty much, I can kill the big guys and the important guys real fast. Everything else however, I will take time to kill. So Elites, HQs and Vehicles are no match against the combined might of 3 Destructor pattern Predators, A Land-Raider, 2 Land-Speeders and loads of other good stuff.
I recently had my third game, this time with a more complete army and with a better idea for all the Rules and Regulations of the Warhammer 40k Tabletop game. Once again, I was playing against my best friend and his Chaos Army (ewwww, Chaos filth XD). AND once again, I won
Here’s an update. Today i broke out the almighty air brush and used its savage prowess upon my remaining vehicles in my mech-ed out army. Now the twin Rhinos and the twin Land Speeders are both in their correct colour schemes. But i’m stuck on which areas of my Drop Pod to paint red and so i just skipped past it.
Group shot of all the units painted today:
well, for my return to the blogsphere, i’ve decided to use the most predominant of my interests as the first post; Warhammer 40k Figurines. So sit back and enjoy.
first up, the now almost completed 2nd Tactical Squad. the only things left to paint up are the faces of the sergeant and the 2nd in command and to decide what goes upon the banner. i have acquired a devastator set and now my squad is now fully armed with a melta and a multi-melta. after i plated a few games with the previous list, i’ve made changes to the entire strike force and my sergeant no longer sports a power weapon as my playing style negates the use of melee weapons as i prefer guns over blades. this squad is now adapted to be the forward advancing squad hence the meltas.
