WarGames Con Countdown...

...will I make it or no?

I think so.  I'm down to the final squad, the Brotherhood Guard, and being mostly Terminators they ought to sing through.  Honestly, the hardest models to paint are basic Space Marines with Bolter/Bolt Pistol and Close Combat Weapon.  I think the weapons are bitch, personally; not only do they block the model but the days of painting them silver and letting it go are long gone!

Though I did that with the Fangs.  I'll go back later and add color to the Missile Launchers, but right now finishing is the goal.

The two Rhinos will take no time.

I'm down to tomorrow afternoon.  A few notes:

To Evil Homer:  My long-suffering wife said you tried to chat with her; try though I might, she insists on communicating with me through Google, which tends to make folks think I'm present!  Anyway, I'll get in late on Thursday but I'll be coming by Doubletree early Friday to chat and/or eat prior to the Team Tournament.

To BBF / Steve:  I'm sorry I haven't communicated as much as I need to with you - I'm grinding man!  We'll have a blast at the team event, I'm sure.

To Everyone Else:  Say 'Hi' - God's own truth, I enjoy meeting Bloggers more than anything.

And lastly, an FWI:  It seems the FLGS's newest mainstay, the Card Pimp in Question, will be joining me for the event.  If any of you fine folks meet him...

...please refer to him as the Card Pimp, no matter what he says his name is!  He doesn't read this blog, so it should make for a good time...  Anyway, it ought to be fun; he's a good dude and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to get to know him better.

Don't read in to that, anyone.

So... I'll do my best to bring you pictures from the tournament, but without my Indentured Servant this year - and where the hell is he? - I'll have to see what I can accomplish!

I'm out - back to the grind, then bed.

Squads are looking good, but goddamn I hate the look of those chaos backpacks

Good luck getting your paint'n done. Also, good luck at the tournament thingy. Play nice!

SinSynn said...

Indentured Servants rock!
Shame you lost yours, Brent...
Good Luck with both the grind (you'll make it!) and the event.

(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.
