Les Pacts de Lupes, a Present, and GW's Help

Sometimes you have to do what inspires you.  I'm going to bite the bullet and admit to myself that I'm going to build the Brotherhood of the Wolf.

The Lonewolf with Chainfist and Storm Shield.


While I've only done the two models, I've been slowly collecting the models necessary to do the army.  I've got several ideas to pursue with this force.  Anyway, you'll get bored of it before too long, since it's probably one of the things I'll be highlighting on Strictly Average.

So... how fast can I build an army from nothing?  You'll see.

In other news, the Mighty Mighty Carlos dropped by the other day, dropping in from out of the blue to drop off a surprise.


I loved the Brent cartoon he drew; I'm sure you've seen it, since it's on the blog here.  To make a long store short, the Master Manipulator (every store needs one) noticed that I stand the same way when I'm playing a game.  He used his ridiculously nice camera to snap a pic which the Mighty Mighty Carlos used to draw a cartoon likeness.  What's cooler than that?

How about having the picture matted and professionally framed?

There's two, obviously.  The first didn't print in color, so Carlos labeled that one Not Brent.

'Nuff said!  Brent and Not Brent are hanging in my game room now, right next to my full color Jawaball's commemorative, true-scale bust and the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

Speaking of Jawaballs:


This was in the recent GW newsletter.  Jawaballs won the banner contest at the recent Games Day... but what's better than that?

Games Workshop is helping me stalk Jawaballs now.

That's just excellent.

I loved that movie! Still have it in subtitles. One of the few movies worth reading (though at the time I understood part of it. Damn high school French). Anyway that'd be cool to see. I'm curious how your going to incoporate it as a theme!

>Sigh<. Posting that cartoon pic of yourself in the same post with jawaballs...you remember what happened to Jawa and his lame self-advertisment video?...

(Keeping you honest since 2010.)

While the concept is cool, if you are really going to invest in a new, serious project (yes, serious, you plan on working hard at this, don't label it otherwhise in a lame attempt of excusing your chances of failure), which means a lot of time and money (well, I'm not sure about the latter, but the former is way more valuable), you should look after your models.

I mean, update that terminator body, is ruining your good idea, cheap äss.

You can come upon affordable black reach terminators almost under rocks, but in case that you find yourself unable to, I'll link you some.

http://stores.ebay.com/Hoard-O-Bits/_i.html?_nkw=black+reach+terminators&submit=Search&_sid=328531845

eBay is vast and infinite.

Trust me, update that pewter shït, as she said, size does matter, but truly, the lack of waist plates and those rounded ends make that LW truly deserving his solitude.

Even a lowly BR Terminator body (though I would order a box of Chaos Terminators at Maelstrom or, again, probe eBay for some) will improve drastically your model granting bulk and sharp lines to match it with the rest of your force, Thunderhorse Knights, Fenrisian Puppies, and so on.

Don't cheap yourself when you plan on putting in a lot of TIME, a vital resource you know, in what can end up resulting in a gorgeous army.

Nah, just do this.

Alternatively, I think the old termies could benefit just as well from cutting them in half above the waist and adding an abdomen. Without modification they seem to go legs, waist, chest, then head.

(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.
