I'll be off the net for a few days.

Well if you've been watching TV at all you know what hit Alabama. I know first hand because I was sheltered down inside our precinct when it hit right on top of us. It has been an incredibly long day. And I'm about to go back out. This was the worst tragedy I've been in since i worked in KAtrina in the Air Force. Just say a little prayer for all of those that are still lost out there and for the ones who ahve already lost.
All of the officers in Tuscaloosa have been accounted for and there immediate families are all ok as well. We are in a national emergency status now so I wont be on much for about the next week or so. I'll get some more model stuff done up later but right now it's back burnered.
This is what hit us

This is whats left of the side of town I work on, it pretty much all looks like this.

More at a later date,
Matt

BUGS!!!!

So I managed to get up with Lach today and get the last 4 big bugs done, only 24 Hgaunts to go and 3 homegrown tyrant gaurd. I'm especially looking forward to the tyrant gaurd now as I have scene what Lach can do with a drill and a saw (see below).
First up are the 2 Trygons and the new mega fex. First let me say CMON GW really coulddn't you build the spore stacks already attached. Gluing those took forever. Trying to line them up and seat em right was ridiculous. The rest of the modes was pretty easy and I got lots of fun bits to play with now. The fex well hes had some mutations. I really love crusher claws but I don't really use em. So we were sitting there and I thoght hmm what if he had all 4 talons and claws. So....we lach drilled some holes and VIOLA Mega Fex.


Last is the Flyrant, I really am in love with her. Lach out did himself. This is what we started with.

(image used without GW permission will be removed at their request)
Then we started kit bashing and Lach started surgery. This is what we ended with. I am thoroughly pleased with her. And after a quick once over and some paint she's gonna be a mean little beauty.



She's unique and the best part she's 100% GW so shes tournament worhty. Thanks again Lach.
As always thanks for reading and more later.

As promised pictures of my work(s) in progress

I have been steadily working at it for the past few weeks. Well since I last posted actually. As of tonight the last 3 warriors are finished and that just leaves 2 Trygons a Carnifex, a Flyrant and 3 Tyrant Guard but I have to order some bits for them. I'll be making homemade gaurd, I do not like the current models. Hive fleet Nex is in full efect and I should be knocking out the last few big bugs tomorrow, (hopefully.) It's planned but we'll see if it comes to fruition. Oh my new Sterngaurd and Vangaurd vets are in there too, I went ahead and knocked them out in that time frame as well. I'll be needing them after the Furioso, Stormraven and new Termys come in for my birthday. It's amazing what a plan can do for you.



AND.....
My greatest creation ever is a about a month away now...and the anticipation is eating me alive. Here's what I've been doing with my old office, aka Emma's room. It's pretty much done just gotta clean up from getting all the shower presents built and put away. I still can't believe it and she's almost here. Just a few shots of her girl cave, my new man cave is almost as good as it used to be just a little less space, but atleast I still have it. More to come on her in about a month give or take.





So after Nex its time to knock out the Tau boys (name still coming) and I need to check the bank cause I gotta make a purchase from Secret Weapon Minis. Alien themed bases are gonna look sweet with the hive fleet.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and more to come.

Dejavu.....I've said this before.

Well its been a little over a year since my last post,and I know I said I was back when the Blood Angels came out, but I got sucked back into WoW (which I am bored with now for the most part) and life has given me a great big whirl. More to come on that with pictures. I have been building again though, and not just models. The greatest thing I've ever built should arrive in just about 7 more weeks and I'm excited beyond words. But I have been back in the modeling chair and have completed several models here recently. I even developed a model building plan, where if I build a certain number of troops I earn a tank or a Trygon or something cool. I recently earned myself a Land Raider and am 6 models away from a Trygon. I am excited about the game again and hope to keep it that way. I'll be posting more again and will have pictures of the new models, the new room I had to build that moved me into my new room, and in 7 weeks give or take my new addition. More to come I promise. I even found a group of gamers in Tuscaloosa finally and hopefully I will be able to get back into some games with Lach and the new gamers here in the near future. Special thanks to those of you that kept me in your blog rolls.
