Well, it's the weekend.

First off, here are some pictures from the Beerhammer 40k game at my house a couple of weeks back.  I have been forgetting to post them, so sorry about that.  These were taken as we were cleaning up, so there aren't many models on the table.  All of the containers from the drinking are still there though, giving you a rough idea of how we used them as terrain to block vehicles and shooting.  What we should have done though is taken a count of all of the shots we took to reroll, haha.  That's what ended my sobriety.  You could take a shot of anything to reroll something, and on average there was about 3 shots taken per team, per player turn.  We literally finished off a bottle of vodka, and a little absinthe as well.  Rough night.  Anyways, here are some other angles of the battle.  The board isn't finished, but since I am moving across town next months, I haven't felt like working on it just for it to get messed up in the move.  I'll do more once I'm all settled in.

On to other news, I have been painting as much as I can lately, so I should have some nice pictures of all of that to put up shortly.  I have been focusing purely on my Dust stuff, since I am waiting for the new Chaos Codex to drop before I put any more Chaos models together.  Don't want to build them all with weapon A when weapon B becomes AMAZING!  I hate painting flesh, but it has been a good exercise for me in it, since I generally try to avoid it at all possible times.

On a more somber note, however, today marks the 5 year anniversary of the death of a great friend.  His name was Juan Restrepo, and we served together in Battle Company, 2/503rd (ABN), 173rd ABCT while in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan.  He was a great friend, an amazing battle brother, and the best damn medic I ever worked with.  There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think of him, and no matter what happens, I'll never forget him either.  No matter what you think of the wars, or of soldiers, please just respect the sacrifices some people have made.  DTV brother, I'll see you again one day.

This is a picture of us in Afghanistan, a few weeks before he was killed.

Anyways, I'm fairly drunk, so take care and stay tuned for less depressing stuff, and more models!
