Godlike (8/8)



  1. Probably a toss up between the messaging apps, the e-book apps, and the one game I play.
  2. Been poking at these guys a bit, but then got confirmation of a game last night, for today. So push was on. These 4 are complete as of about 5 minutes ago when I put them on bases. They are what I need for tonight (gun up guy will fill in for the officer. The Mertilizer is sealed, just needs the gloss on the armor-y pieces and put on the base, which is completed. Was working on it too until I decided which heavy I was going with. And the officer and grenade launcher need their flames painted and their bases finished, since there should probably be some OSL on the bases. Not bad for time, don't need to leave for an hour....plenty of time for the super glue to dry.....
  3. While watching Friday Night Fights (SW Legion live stream) I put together this Crusader I found in my stash. I'll probably magnetize the turrets later. Apparently were used extensively in the desert. And then opened the 8th Army starter box and started on the two Bren carriers. I'll do one as a Mk I and one as a Mk II.
  4. Geez, haven't updated this in a while. Those loaders did get heads btw.... Lately for assembly I've started on some British, specifically the 8th Army from the Gentleman's War box set. (btw, if you haven't watched SAS Rogue Heroes on Prime, go watch it. I can wait.....) Finished up the Humber this morning so here is a group shot of what comes in the box (for the British, it also comes with some Afrika Korps for the Germans). Humber II in the back, with the officer and two assistants in front of it. Left front is the light mortar team, right front is the Boys anti-tank team. And two the sides are two units of infantry, each with a Bren and loader. A good start, now to tackle the actual 8th Army starter box.....
  5. Nope. Think I had to do a little terrarium a very long time ago for a school project.....no idea what was in it now...bugs? Maybe a small lizard or two?
  6. For live action, definitely Marvel. The MCU has done things well, and even their "worst" are better than a lot of the DC content. DC's Arrowverse was pretty good when it started, but the last seasons I watched were pretty bad. The DCU has been so inconsistent and has had so many reboots that it really doesn't compare. Individual movies have been excellent, but combined they are a mess. Favorite: Of current content: The Boys "universe". Seems like the most realistic take on what would happen if powers developed. Plus Karl Urban is "diabolical"..... Of all time: another vote for The Tick in all it's forms. "Da dweeee, da da da dwee dow."
  7. Probably somewhere in the high teens or low twenties? We watched it a lot. Favorite? Probably Animal followed by the Swedish Chef, like others. Although Beaker's rendition of "Feelings" is pretty priceless......
  8. Most things, I'm the guy who's supposed to fix it, so I've gotten good at relaxing and investigating and coming up with solutions. Luckily trouble shooting has been part of my jobs for the last 20+ years, so apparently I'm pretty good at it. And youtube is super helpful these days for repairing or finding out what parts you need. For example, I have now replaced most of the stupidly poorly designed components of our Dyson vacuum. For bigger stuff, I try not to stress and just deal with it as needed. We have a crack in our foundation that started leaking in October. The previous owner had had it repaired by some crap company (who does 2 year warranties on foundation repairs??) so we have to wait until spring (ground temp is too cold for the product to bond properly in the winter), remove a small deck (for access), dig out the foundation and then have an external membrane applied. Because the good foundation companies won't warranty an internal repair if the crack has been previously repaired, since they don't know what is in there or how it might interact with their product. So 5-10 times the cost to repair. Awesome.... I listen to heavy music at loud volumes, preferably while driving. I find it very calming and relaxing.
  9. Also was never that much of a goal setter, beyond things like: When Battle of the Planets was on I wanted to be a member of G-Force. When Emergency was the big thing, wanted to drive a firetruck. When BJ and the Bear was on, wanted to drive a big rig. When A-Team was on I wanted to be a member of a crack commando unit that was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit, and that promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade o the Los Angeles underground. Beyond that I wanted to race cars, have enough money to buy all the toys I wanted, have a wonderful wife and a nice house, and retire early. Of those, I've gotten to slalom and rallycross cars, and lap on a a race track. And marshal bike and car racing. So mostly that one. I haven't bought all the toys I want, but a pretty good percentage 🙂 I did manage the wonderful wife, and the house is pretty nice. Still working on the retiring early, unfortunately.
  10. I guess I'd have to go with spinal surgery (receiving, not performing). I don't think that is really in anyone's comfort zone. Reason? The alternative was slowly (or quickly) getting permanent nerve damage, eventually to the point of losing functionality to everything below the waist. It went pretty well, some nerve impact to my left foot, which so far seems to be recovering. Last thing that didn't involve me being unconscious? Starting a new job after 24 years with the same company. Reason? Layoffs at the old jobs. I guess it went ok, I'm still employed , going on 4? years? Really. Jeez, a pandemic really throws off how long some things seems to have been.....
  11. It varies. A nice long drive with the windows down and the tunes cranked (not so good this time of year), going to the beach (again, not so much this time of year), getting lost in a book, assembling some figs, or binge watching something. Yesterday was assemble some figs.
  12. Introvert. Very much so. This post will likely be my only social interaction today. And I'm good with that.
  13. Not too much, my wife is both better at that sort of thing and much more into it. I did find a nice recliner for her (we don't buy new furniture, the 4 cats remove all value from them almost instantly) for free on a FB site last year.
  14. Switched back to the Dark Troopers today. I think this one is basically done. Not that you can see in this pic, but the red power lights on the chest would have had to been free handed on to a tiny detail. Instead I painted some buttons or something just below that. Way easier and close enough. The rest need the metallics done, and then I need to figure out the flames for the flying guys. And finish the bases....
