Monday June 16 2008 Hunters of Blood

Picture: a giant Flesh Hound of Khorne. That's a chariot base that thing is on. This was done with a marvelous substance called Apoxie Sculpt. You can get it on eBay pretty cheap.

See a video commentary on the Hounds of Khorne project.

It is now 4:30am. I had such a hard work day on Monday that I pretty much collapsed when I got home at 8pm last night. Here's how it went.

I was ready and raring to go on Monday morning. I spent a few hours in the morning picking away at my Inbox. I took it from 87 emails on Friday, which I killed off by Friday evening, leaving only 4, hammered some on Saturday, but by Monday it was back up to 54. That's what I call "substantive email count". That means it doesn't count emails that don't require a reply. I only wrestled it down to 43 by Monday afternoon.

Isn't that great? I'm living the dream man.

No, but seriously. I got to play a game with Renn around noon. I had a slice of pizza for lunch. As usual I lost hideously. I'm like the Washington Senators that way. Well, someday.

We played a homebrew scenario called "Let's Just Play". One player sets up beforehand and also gets the first turn. Then you play until one person cries Uncle. This can be all the way until one side is killed to a man. I managed to fight for three lousy rounds.

Oh, and it was my Tau vs. Renn's Dark Angels. His army is shaped up. I think he has 2000 pts all painted up now. Very impressive.

We got in like eight packages this morning. Getting those set up was the bulk of my day. If one of those were yours, you should have got confirmation of receipt.

A bitz order went out today. This is usually what delays a project-- acquisition of materials. Everything is underway now.

Everyone that came in saw the Boneyard Terrain set thought it was the best one yet. It is very evocative:

I plan on doing more terrain in the near future: expanding the mushroom forest (I had a great idea for stalks!), making another set of Moab (which sold already), expand the Swamp set to a full table, make a set of Necromancer doors (for the D&D terrain). And a client has requested some Tau terrain.

Which reminds me, I'm going to run a D&D game. Fourth edition of course. I love what I'm seeing. Of course, they've turned it into a sort of miniatures battles game now which is of special interest to me.

In the evening the kids got out of their baths, and they were wrapped in towels when my wife came down with a giant plate of cottage cheese and pear slices. We all ate from the same plate while watching an episode of Ben 10. That's what it's all about.

Well, if you'll excuse me, I need to eat some cereal, pop a few pain pills and get back to sleep...

PS- I'm currently booking projects for July! Get it set up now for a smooth finish.
