Godlike (8/8)



  1. End of month update:- Got nowhere with anything I planned to do, but I got a few things built and painted one whole skeleton!
  2. Presenting the Smug Juggernaut, part of a special edition set from Wyrd Games for the game of Malifaux. I was going to wait until I'd painted the whole trio of Juggernauts before showing them off, but that's not happening anytime soon! Pretty pleased with him, especially his stripey pants, but he could've done with going on a bigger base. As always, any comments of criticisms are warmly received.
  3. A mountain of a man in life, he was still an imposing figure in death. Presenting Jakob the Giant (The name doesn't make a lot of sense when he's solo like this, but he is somewhat larger than the rest of the skellies in the set), he's part of a Warhammer Underworlds set I've named Reinharts Deaths Heads. Pretty happy with this guy, think I managed to make his armour look well worn without going the rusty route, now I just need to get the rest of the Deaths Heads painted! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  4. There's a lot to choose from, but the one that I'll always remember is also a rather sad one. Prince (My Yorkshire Terrier) had been very ill for a few months and all he really did was sleep all the time. Then one night he got me up early in the morning to go outside, but instead of going back to sleep he wanted to play, so we sat up for an hour or so playing fetch and stuff and he was running around like his old self. He passed away later that day. Probably reading far too much into it, but it's always felt like he was saying goodbye.
  5. Yep. I wouldn't bother if my Housemate didn't insist on getting one whenever we go shopping though.
  6. While I have recently joined the ranks of the cellphone user, it's only a very basic one for emergencies and doesn't have apps. My Chromebook runs off apps though, not that I knowingly use any though. I kinda stopped understanding technology in the early 00's.
  7. I don't, but my parents did, unfortunately they kept it on a table that wasn't quite big enough and one day it cracked right along the overhang. There were quite a few kinds of fish in there but I can't remember what.
  8. Both. I like pretty much anything that started life as a comic book, which is weird because I don't particularly like comic books.
  9. Nope. I've tried meditating, as it sometimes pops up in the exercise programs I follow, but I can never silence my chattering monkey of a brain for long enough.
  10. Mid-month update:- The good news is that I'm painting, the bad news is I'm painting skeletons. It's like at a certain point my brain just rebels against the idea of actually planning out what I'll work on.
  11. I used to be a lot more laid back about these kinds of things, nowadays it varies between worried to full-blown panic attack.
  12. These arrived yesterday with a couple of freebies:- The lady Dwarf fighter (Who was out of stock when I ordered, so I now have a complete set) and a couple little robots.
  13. From what I remember, the book never got that specific about the tech limits (For probably very good reasons), it was more the electric areas were vaguely 1950's while the steam ones were generic Victoriana. I mainly read it because it had airships on the cover.
  14. Never had much in the way of goals or dreams, but when I was younger I wanted to travel a lot and be either a scientist, astronaut or work with animals. To date I've achieved none of them and, apart from the travelling one, I've probably left it too late.
