Too Many Projects, Too Little Time

...and Wargames Con is just around the corner!  Here's some of what I'm working on.  When you get to the end, if you're thinking, "Boy, Brent's working on everything but what he should be finishing for the Con," then you're seeing clearly.

This is the only project that really needs doing.  I really love my Freak Flex airbrush paints, but the container sucks.  I've purchased these inexpensive, airtight bottles to transfer the collection to.  Note it has a flip-top, which will make it MUCH, MUCH easier to load the airbrush properly, with minimal waste.

Five old-style scouts for the Brotherhood.  I'm not actually planning on bringing the Brotherhood..!

Cleaning older models... and why now?  Not sure.

This one doesn't bother me much; it's the Skar Veteran for the Card Pimp's Lizardmen.  I like keeping a model to work on while my primary project dries.

Needs a wash at this point, but I'm happy so far.

Ah!  Ah, ha!  Yeah!  I acquired some great models for my Homage army of RTB1-era Marines and some more original plastic boys for my Orks.

(By the way, Simon, are you still using those?)

Yeah.  You want some more.  You know you do...

(Creepy, sexy voice anyone?)  You know you want 'em.  Yeah!

This is one I've been stuck on, but progress now proceeds!  This will be the base...

...for a Sorceress of Tzeentch.  My goal is a base that can 1) fit into a unit of Marauders  or 2) pass as a Disk.


Anyone have that aforementioned thought?

(Not sure you wanna know my thoughts.)

I know the feeling. I've got a 40k army to paint, a Dust army to paint, BFG fleet to paint, terrain to paint, terrain to build, terrain to finish and a display board to finish for my brother. There's a lot to do and I don't have a deadline, but it always seems as if I'm adding more to the list than I take off.

Are you planning on coming to Feast again this year?

Brent said...

Aventine: I certainly hope so! I'm sort of tentatively planning to, but money is tighter this year than last. I'll have to supplement my income through commissions...

...and who knows how that's going to work out?

Krad: Too true!

Hi Brent. Since this is most likely the only chance I will get to go to War Games Con, and I did not sign up for any games on Friday, I have decided to spend my time stalking you. I have spent plenty of time talking to Jawaballs up here in my neck of the woods at different cons here and there and now it is your turn to get STALKED!

Have a nice day and I'll see you next week.

Also, I have made it my goal to get my army finished before you, so please keep working on things you shouldn't be!

Brent said...

Darn it, that's what's happening!

Well, it looks like the team tournament may be out for me, depending on what time the Card Pimp gets off work and down to Austin. I may be playing pickup games on Friday, so look me up.

As a note, I did finally work out an army list for the main tournament...

...now I just have to paint it...

PalinMoonstride said...

Weren't main tournament army lists supposed to be submitted by may 30th?

(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.
