A I'm Not at Work Brotherhood Update

Why does being sick and calling in to work feel like playing hooky from school?  It's simply harder to enjoy than a weekend - all I can think of is how I should be at my desk.

The work just builds up.  Plus, I feel crappy.  I've tried taking medicine but now I feel drowsy and crappy.

I have managed to get some work done.

I really enjoy putting together Brotherhood models.  To my eye, the odd, eclectic mix of Imperial and Chaos bits takes me back to the old days of Do-It-Yourself Chaos Warbands... which makes sense, since that's where I got the idea.

Yeah, I went in to work today, but ended up coming home. I always feel guilty for doing it for some reason.

What are the assault marine's hands going to count as? Lightning claw or close combat?

Some nice work there, man. I especially like the mounted models. Are you making a Killzone team or a larger force?

All I know is that as a count-as army you are just peeing on the game and make a mockery of this glorious miniature gaming super awesome bad ass war game!

I don't care how cool they look nor how awesome the thought of the army is it is still a bunch of hooey that you try to be creative and paint something you enjoy and want to spend the time on.

You sir are killing the hobby and makes me want to just cry every day as I sit in my basement and think about how all the models are left without their proper colors and rules and just... YOU SIR ARE A POOP FACE AND ARE FULL OF POOP!!!

Plus Goatboy smells!

Thomas aka Goatboy said...

Cry a bit. If you can't make fun of yourself then what are you - too serious haha.

Those are some sweet conversions. Makes me feel a little jealous, I only used possessed and CSM parts for mine. I got to get some of those Fantasy Chosen weapons and heads.

They look pretty awesome! What's the head on the lightning claw guy from?

Also, the copy editor in me is in pain from your post title; it should be "An I'm Not At Work Update." You need the n there!

(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.

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."

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".

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.
