  1. I painted up a couple of models as a tribute to Tobin, since it's close to the second anniversary of his death. I figured there might be others around here who remember him and would want to see, so I thought I'd link to my blog post about him.
  2. I just got a notification from Google that my password on here had been part of a data breach somewhere. Might be a good time for everyone to update theirs.
  3. Q: Are We Not Marines? A: We Are Devo!
  4. If a Rogue Trader breaks their Charter, or betrays the Imperium or something, are they then called a rogue Rogue Trader? A Rogue Traitor?
  5. This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone: It's rare that I find a book to be as good as everyone says it is, but this is one of the where I did. I don't have the words to talk about it properly. Just beautiful writing.
  6. I was pretty spacy when I went to the dentist the other day. When the dental hygienist was doing the COVID screening and asked if I had a recent loss of taste, I replied "No, I dress like this all the time".
  7. Yeah, regardless of technique, using a true grey rather than the robin's egg blue that they try to pass off as grey is really a good look for SW. Because of disability issues (when I hit my limit, I need to be able to stop immediately, can't always deal with the cleanup an airbrush would require), I messed around and figured out the bigass brush as an alternative that was more workable for me.
  8. Alien Implant. One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I only stuck through to the end out of a sort of horrified trainwreck fascination. Looking it up afterward, I was surprised to learn that it's the 12th(!) film by this director, and actually, I was pretty surprised to find that it was made in the US, since the dialogue came across like it was both written and performed by people who only had a vague knowledge of English. Lake Placid vs. Anaconda: They finally acknowledged that Yancy Butler is the real star of the series and gave her the central role! Very fun capstone to both series, cheesy as hell but it doesn't matter. It does feature the phrase "snake extraction" enough that it got stuck in my head, tho 😉
  9. I did my SW working up from a black undercoat through Mechanicus Standard Grey, Dawnstone, and Administratum Grey. No airbrush, just drybrushing with a really big* brush. There are some pics here and here. Then picked out the details afterward. *As in, a brush normally used for doing trim on houses. Could easily be done with zenithal spraying/airbrushing for a cleaner effect, tho.
