Randomness XVIII: Ex-Vee-Triple-Eye


Recommended Posts

One of these days I'm actually going to have to start building my Genestealer Cult army, and not just buy models for it...

 

To be fair, though, the latest purchase was a boxed set that is no longer in production (repackage of 4 kits and about 42% off MSRP--although the one I bought was price-gouged by an Amazon seller, so only 27% off).  Yes, I am that level of nerd that calculates out the values on boxed sets to know what kind of deal it is.

 

And when the next boxed set finally hits the shelves (six kits and about 36% off MSRP), I'll likely be picking up three of those as well.

 

I'm almost thinking I need to start a project log to keep things straight (and document the sheer lunacy of 100+ foot-slogging troops).  I'm thinking there will be some alternate special weapons built for WYSYWIG purposes.

Have you thought of using a graphing tool? Something like Kumu may do the job for you (they build network graphs based on connections) Trick with these is that you define the connections and it then builds the graph with spacing as you define...
 

I'll see if I can get a screenshot of something I've done for you

Works better if you can actually interact with it - clicking on the points allows you to see what they're connected to

I started off with Scapple, a mind mapping tool.  My end goal is to get something I can print out that looks similar to the London tube map:

There's absolutely nothing wrong with looking for better deals on GW's high priced stuff. I used to do the same thing when I still played their games. I STILL do the same thing when I see something new they've made that looks like it'd be fun to paint.

 

Also, you're not the only one with an army that needs building; I've been collecting pieces and parts for a ( fantasy )Chaos horde for a few years now, I'm definitely overdue to start actually working on it.

Welcome back! How are you?

Great. Much better than before! Bought a house where I love and hate it at the same time. Haha. My water heater is dying. So looking up tankless water heaters. Other than that, work has taken away 3 departments from me and now my responsibilities are to one department.  Wooooo. Also I get to work from home. Woooo.

 

I missed a lot on this forums. I don't even know where to begin.

Okay, quick updates:

Redambrosia's Sophie is even cuter now.

Gliitterwolf is still posting the delicious meals.

W.O.O.F. has finally admitted to MEOW's superiority.

People are planning for Reapercon already.

Sylverthorne is out on bail from trying to get her well FINALLY in.

Chaoswolf has been sober twice...

But my desktop computer is down, and Andi is baffled as to what's going on.

New drive showed up, though, so maybe I will have a working computer next week.

Good to see a post or two from yah @pcktlnt!

 

 

I've been slowly working hard for my work place. I started doing way too many 10 to 12 hours. These recent months, I didn't feel appreciated, more taken advantage. I've since lost my care for the company. Probably more due to burning out. I'll do my job, just not more than I need to anymore. More time for myself and my wifey.

There’s sufficient evidence that cats CAN be trained… they just don’t want to be.

And here’s from a little bit ago:

The bowl there is for throwing up in ☹️ It’s been that kind of night.
