Wargaming Blogs of Note: Russian

I'm 'working' on my Terrible Tuesday article right now, but the words aren't coming too quickly - with that, came the procrastination, then the poking around the internet...

...then stumbling upon a gem of a blog in Russia!  Check it out.


And she started painting in 2009.  *sigh*  Here's some of the work...

'Nuff said.


The Tallyman of Nurgle, Finished!

I've been working on a commission for the Tim That Can, and of course painting character models is both the best and worst part.  Best, 'cause it's fun; worst, 'cause it has to be done right.  If things aren't going well, one can invest a ton of time into one model.

This one went pretty well, at least from where I'm sitting.


Still Hunting the Escaped Muse...

...but in the meantime, I actually play some games.

I played Sam's Legion warband with my new Circle force.  Unfortunately, things went a bit downhill after this picture, but I'm learning!

This a week ago this past Saturday, I met a dude named Spencer, a recent transplant to my North Texas next of the woods - from a much cooler city.  Anyway, I invited him to the local store, Galaxy Books and Comics, for a game.  I brought Footdar, mostly because it's a painted army.

The Dreadknight deep strikes from behind...

...while the Terminators advance.

I won't go into the game too much - I didn't take enough pictures for that - but it was a good game, with the advantage seemingly locked up for the Grey Knights with the arrival of the Storm Talon and Paladins.

I really should have taken more damage than I did during Spencer's shooting.  He wasn't that familiar with the Eldar, so spend maybe a bit too much shooting at Elle-drag's Seers, who naturally had Fortune.

And so the game ends dramatically, with the last two Paladins fighting it out with the Avatar and Elle-drag.

Fun to be had by all!

...but my muse is still missing.  More on that to come.


Oh, But Where the Muse has Flown!

I was actually surprised when Little Barrera mentioned it's been over a month since I've posted here.  Seriously - I would have said maybe three weeks.

So what's up with that?

Life.  Work.  The holidays.  My annual relaxation from the weekly BoLS schedule.  But it's more than that...

...frankly, I've been bored!

Sadly, my muse has flown.  So I went looking for him.

I couldn't find my muse anywhere.  In fact, it got worse - I tore open the rest of my room, just making a  mess of things!

...er... tilt your head to the left?

Then I looked on Call of Duty Black Ops... for quite a few weeks...

Maybe in here?

Hell ya!  It's time from a change for a bit!

I'm not quite done, but I had to relearn some basics again for this one.  Stupid airbrush - once you get used to it, what happens when it's down?

Okay, I got this figured out...

(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.
