Randomness XI: Rampant Randomness Randomly Rampaging

Recommended Posts

The thing is that rather than making fleets for each nation, I just made a whole Goblin's 20 of ships.   I have little flags I can stick on the mainmasts to create a nation's fleet on the fly.  Thus, names would get into a Bad Data state really quickly.

 

I've so far dubbed my British R1s to be "HMS Lunchbox" and "HMS unsinkable III".

Um.

 

Ignoscite

 

means "Pardon me" or "sorry"

 

Rei veritatem

 

Means "the truth of the thing"

Thank you Pingo! :wub: 

 

I have now suggested "Ignoscite Reapse" as the name of a Space Marines chapter. Not perfect but it seems like it should get the idea across, and certainly seems to capture the spirit of many of the Space Marines aficionados I've met.

I went into the express clinic this morning for what I thought was an ear infection. It turns out my allergies are just really, really bad this year. So I went to the store and picked up the Flonase he prescribed and some Zyrtec too because the Claritin doesn't seem to be helping much anymore. And that's been my morning. Hoping to get a lot of painting done today, I've still got 3 giants to finish up and only until Saturday to do so.

The key is compartmentalization.  You have to practice making your work detail automatic and putting part of your brain on that task so you can function without impairment or anyone noticing you're on autopilot.  The rest of it you can use to vividly imagine your co-workers' faces melting like in Raiders of the Lost Ark.  This is the secret to work happiness.

I had seriously expected you guys to have broken this thread like two days ago.  

 

It's my fault, I told 'em not to until I got the snapper teeth in but then I forgot to come back and say they're done.  This is just like the time I told Wormtoes to wait a second I'd be right back but then I forgot about it because I got distracted by a weird noise in the dungeon and then there were adventurers and stuff and by the time I got back to him he was a skeleton with cobwebs all over him.

 

So if any of you are skeletons with cobwebs now, I'm sorry.  And also can I have your stuff?  And also don't come back to haunt me maybe.

I'm guessing their chapter icon is a trilby? What about chapter colors?

I want it to be a thing so bad. But I'd settle for a no physical pain one that I didn't mind working at.

Also I just posted Fort Moultrie to go with the ships.

 

I visited there last Saturday - it's maybe half an hour drive from my house.  They've got sections restored to various points in history - WW2, ACW, 1812, etc.

 Depends what you have in the pipe....

I look at it this way... if it was enjoyable they wouldn't have to pay so much to get people to do it.

I don't hate my job.  Some days I like it.  Mostly I'm bored.  But it pays the bills and I don't really have to exert myself.

Almost time to go home. Going to dig through the minis I brought with me and see if I snagged any 40k stuff... Otherwise it's time to get started on my ReaperCon entries.

Got one of THOSE calls last night; you know the kind, the kind nobody wants to make.

My Dad is in the hospital. Heart attack. Blood clots. They airlifted him to a specialist (Ma Barb said he was all happy about that part; he got to ride in a helicopter!), but there's no information past that. And now I get to sit and #%@# wait, because there's sod all I can do else. :/

 

Mebbe I'll go paint. Can't play a game, phone might ring... :/

Yeah, can't help kill off the thread either.

 

Because reasons.

 

Which I shall not divulge. Until I find something really cool and worth posting.

 

And I'd rather be painting. 

 

Found something!

It has its moments. Usually when something really cool happens, or things go really pear shaped (and not my fault). Time usually ales it better.

Sympathies! Dad is still recovering from his quad-bypass and three valve replacement. Now he has pneumonia as well, so that has delayed him going home by three days. Was four, but the meds are working well.

Sympathy. I know the feeling. 

 

Time to blow this joint! Later all!

I went through this many times when my dad was alive so you have my greatest sympathies. My inbox is open if you need an ear.
