Drinking and painting equals...

Stripping models!  So yeah, priming and painting drunk may not be the best idea.  My proof is my Cygnar army.  I have about 30 some odd models that I am in the process of stripping and washing off.  Tons of fun.  When drunk, I screwed up in way too many ways:

-Used WAY too much primer on the models
-Primed in my garage while it was raining, so the humidity made everything fuzzy
-then sponged on rust colors, and went straight to sponging on liquid latex, without varnishing first.  This meant that the latex REALLY got a firm hold in between all the ridges of the models that the fuzziness created
-Next morning while hung over, I convinced myself I could fix it.  How?  By putting MORE paint on the models.  4 layers to be exact.  And wash. 

So after wasting a few hours and a bunch of paint, I had to go out and buy Purple Power to fix it all.  Most of the models are stripped to the metal, which is nice, but I still have a few left and then I get to start all over.  Yay me.  So, lesson learned.  Maybe.  And by maybe, I mean probably not.

Cygnar Stormwall is done!

So yes, I bought one of these last weekend, and I have been slaving away at it.  I absolutely loveeeeeee the model, and I wasted no time painting it up in my Swamp theme that I am doing all of my Cygnar in.  Anyways, more pictures and words below!

What, I still have a blog? Oh, yeah....

So to get the obvious out of the way, I haven't posted in over a month.  Lots of things have been going on.  Diablo 3 came out, and my damn near 250 hours of time played between my 3 60's shows that I no longer have a life...  Also, I have been trying to close on a house, and that should finally be finished next Friday.  That means a bigger man cave, and the chance to paint my walls however I want (wife approving, of course).  I also have been frustrated with GW over their recent price changes AGAIN, but the Internet is filled with enough vitriol over that, so I won't bore you with my feelings.  On a bigger note though, I have dove head first into Warmachine and Hordes.  More info on all of this though below!
