The following post has been removed to protect the guilty.


Brent is guilty. 

The post must have been removed to protect him.

The unfortunate gamer self-identifies and lashes out.

You know what brent I used to have a lot of respect for you now I have none. Yes my models looked bad and I knew I would catch hell at the store. I asked you to not put this on the web and you said to bad. You know you get all upset when some one says something bad to you. I don't what I have ever done to you to make you want to embarass me like this. I guess now that you are some internet star you can just shit on anyone you like. I told you the reason I used these and that they were not finished. Did you care no you did not you just had to put them on your blog. Well hope you feel like a big man now. This does piss me off to no end. Just hope you get this kind of treatment some day. This was very low class. I asked you to not put this on but you in as many words told you to fuck off. Well I thought we were friends guess not.
I'm somewhat irked.  There's a tendency in all of us to lash out, which is how I feel right now.  Thing is, I do have a platform I could use, but if I did that I wouldn't have one long.  I'll leave it at this:

Okay.

That's all - okay.

I will have to go with Little Barrerra's comment. It is to funny...

It was bad enough to be covered in bear sh.t, but to then have their weapons replaced with pot stickers? Someone at HQ would pay, if he survived, thought Brent. (Second from the left).

I'm still too dumbstruck at seeing these actually on a table to come up with a caption.

Run run run as fast as you can! You can't catch us, we're the Gingerbread 'chans!
Wow...just wow....

Okay.

Herr Fernseher said...

Whoah, Whoah! Brent--YOU'RE the one who shat on Dale's Catachan-Counts-As-Men-At-Arms?

You filthy internet stars...

Dale, don't take it so hard. Your models were funny, BUT they were wysiwyg AND they had some color (yes, an unfortunate color, but "you can't have any milk without first a little manure," right?) --I'm fighting with an all grey army, so you're doing better than me. What am I saying? I didn't even make it to the tournament, so you're doing a LOT better then me.

I look forward to seeing the finished product.

Brent, you still have to give someone a prize for best caption! :D

Master Manipulator (every store needs one) said...

Ok, I think I may need to comment here.

First, (and if I missed this I apologize) I don't think anyone outside the store knew who owned those models. So until you commented the only ones who knew were the store folk and you knew you were going to catch hell from them.

Second, you hope he gets that treatment one day....HELLO!!!! Dyson Pattern Storm Raven anyone? He took a metric ton more crap than you ever did on that one. Oh and he did not go into it knowing it was crap in the way that you did. So yeah, point taken care of.

Not like Brent needs me to defend him, but come on get real. They were not that good. Matter of fact they were downright bad. You knew this way before you brought them to the store. If it is really a offense to your being or manhood that people are making fun of it then I truly feel sorry for you.

Dale said...

Ok let me clear something up. I was wrong for lashing out and some of the things I said. Yes I knew I was going to catch crap at the store. Yes they are bad and I know that. I painted my bowmen the same way I just did not know they were going to look that bad untill I got them ready to go Fri. night.

The point is at the store I took crap Fri and then it was over. What made me mad at Brent was I went to him and asked him to not put them on his site. He told me to bad and still did it. That was what was wrong. I know the models were bad, but I asked him to not do this. He still did it and that was what made me mad.

Brent said...

Okay Dale, you had your free comment.

Yes, you caught shit. Lighten up. If you can't lighten up, shut up.

I told you on Friday I was posting it. You approached me on Saturday morning, at which point it was too late. Still, I would probably have jumped on Larry's computer and removed the post if you hadn't been such an unmitigated ass.

You need to learn how to approach people. Demanding I do something gets you nowhere.

Your mouth and attitude pissed me off all day on Saturday. Frankly, I'm sick of your shit.

Regardless, I posted a followup article - did you read it? - explaining your reasons for converting the unit. I also explained it was going to look better when dipped.

Still, you felt the need to comment and I gave you that. I felt I owed you one, for whatever part of this I owned.

We're not friends? I find I can bear that with some fortitude. I've always - ALWAYS - cut you more slack than anyone else, but you're backsliding, Dale.

Back off. You want no part of me right now.

(Psst! Dale emailed me directly and all is right in the world. Sometimes guys just have to fight.)

(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.

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

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

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."

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

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.
