On a Lighter Note

I've been dropping hints and begging for help, but alas it has all been lost in the general hustle and bustle of the net.  I dropped my little plea for assistance in the middle of a flamewar at one point; I was politely moved to one side, petted on the head, and asked to stay quiet while the adults insulted each other.

"Your mama!" I heard, as my digital head floated through a bluish background.  "Censor - Don't Censor - Censor - Don't Sensor," rang a monotone chime, as a robot panda dodged past.  A starship floated overhead.

It was all very confusing.  Where else can one find an inflated Boba Fett head chat with a pink ping-pond with eyes and orange shoes?

But the King heard me, because the King is everywhere.  The King shouldn't be confused with the King, because one looked for a ring and the other had a guitar, but just to let you in on a secret I think of the King as the King, 'cause he's cooler.  Okay, now I'm confused and I wrote it, but the point is the King left a message that help is on the way!

Let's see some pictures.


Okay, I've done nothing more than separate the Marines out to get an idea of what I have and what I still need to make.  I've started some painting, but really nothing more than basecoats to determine the general look.  The Chaplain is close, but other than that, nothing is done.

The last pic is the Death Company I built.  The original idea was actually to use these models as scouts.  I thought my Chapter would train their recruits by strapping Jump Packs to them, force 'em to sneak around with 300lbs of metal on their backs.  But who uses scouts?

The only problem is finding a list I'd like to try.

ARGH! I have a severe case of Display Area envy.

Anyway, posted, past tense. It's been up about 24 hours. lol :p

Wow, that's an awesome display area. All I've got is my desk and that's clustered with crap like school books :P

TKE gave you some awesome input on the list, when I get a sec I'll be sure to do you the same kindness.

Ah missed it the first go-around. I just saw it, and like I wrote on your blog, it absolutely made my day!

It's 7:51am here in sunny (rainy) Texas; I gave myself permission to skip French class and just relax for a few hours.

Chumby - I look forward to it! Frankly, I've been beating my head against this rock for days now. I've got another try I'll post in a bit - feel free to pick it apart.

Brent, have you been celebrating 420 early?

Evil Homer said...

the first thing you need to decide Brent is what kind of BA army you want.

JP?
Fast Vehicle?
Hybrid?

Once you make that fundamental decision you can go from there.

Woah! What a collection!

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.

Ass.

I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
