Brock Samson as Marbo!

I played at chez moi last night in a game against the Mighty Mighty Carlos.  He wanted a Hard Boyz test game against my Daemons and I was only to happy to do it, given this is as close to Hard Boyz as I'm getting this year.  Fear not, gentle reader (and Practical John), I will release it as a video battle report sometime soon - maybe today - but in the meantime I'll be showing off his models here.

And my absolute favorite was this gem, the Venture Brothers' own Brock Samson as Guardsman Marbo!

That, sir, is one sweet mullet!

Now in my Monarch-themed IG army I need to field Henchman 21 as Marbo.

I see the progression...OSI, SPHINX, now IG

Mordian7th said...

That. Is. Hysterical!

I absolutely need to do a similar conversion. GS Mullets ahoy!

Gauthic said...

Holy crap, Carlos, nice one-I haven't seen that one yet.


Gauthic said...

Also possibly the only good use of Catachan arms I've ever seen.

I'll chill with the comment spam and leave you with this:

Hank: Scuba. Scooba. Scooba scooba scooba scooba scooba. Say "Scuba."
Brock: Scuba.
Hank: Scuba. It sounds funny. Scuba.
Brock: Scuba. Yeah, it does

that is Ventur-iffic! I have a crisis suit that currently looks like it could be Phantom Limb.


Kroxitau said...

Sorry to go copy editor on ya, but it's Brock Samson. That really is a sweet model though.


Scribbles said...

I approve of everything that model stands for. and now i want one.

Brent said...

Doh - sorry, I see the 'p' - I'll fix it.

Can't be screwing up the Venture Brothers!


Kroxitau said...

@ Brent:

I know right!? I am lucky my wife is a nerd too, although instead of warhammer her nerd hobby is sewing. She made a replica of Brock's Jacket for me.

Best Marbo conversion evah!

Herr Fernseher said...

Awesome mini.

If I were to paint that, he would be black with a ton of glossy varnish on the hair, for that Jheri curl look!

Tom said...

Would anyone be willing to make this and sell it to me? My name is Tom and email is tmcateer001@gmail.com

Brent said...

I'm not sure Tom, but it isn't complicated. You can make the model with Catachan parts.

The only sculpt is the hair, which might take some doing.

GO Team Venture!

(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.


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

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
