Where the hell I have been, and other news!

So I haven't posted in a good while.  I have made a little bit of progress on multiple projects, but my biggest project has been a big.  I got hired by my FLGS to open up their second location.  With only slightly less than a month to do it.  And with no real distributors lined up.  It's been rough.  It has also been unbelievably rewarding.  I've been doing so much work that my insomnia hasn't been an issue in like two weeks now, and I'm making very good money from the LLC that owns it.

The new store is called Mandatory Fun.  For any of you military folk out there, that phrase has a very special meaning, haha.  For those of you without exposure to the suck that is mandatory fun, it's a term used to describe a horribly planned unit event, that is supposedly fun but never is, and you better go or else you're screwed.  If you're asking yourself, "Why would they name a store after that?", it's because it's a military themed store.  It's not even a true game store.  We carry military themed apparel, books, hold workshops for Veterans who want to learn how to write, get published, etc, and while we do carry board games, card games, and tabletop minis, they are all military based games.

While this is fairly far away from my big focus on 40k at the moment, it allows me to paint my own Dust stuff, create a league, and get paid in the process.  It works out rather nicely in fact.  As a Veteran myself, I also really do get pleasure out of working with soldiers and Veterans as well.

Anyways, the store opens tomorrow, so once it gets a regular battle rhythm going, I'll be painting and posting more.  Until then though, have a wonderful new year, and may the dice gods be ever in your favor!

Update time!!!

So yes, I am finally adding more pictures.  However, these were taken with my iPhone, so they aren't necessarily the best quality.  They will certainly do for the time being, however.  So this is the knee pad of the Chaos Reaver Titan I am working on.  For more pictures, check below!!!

New pictures coming soon!

So yes, I haven't posted in a while.  Nothing really new there.  However, if you have kept up with what I have posted, you'll remember that my son lost my CF Card for my camera.  And at 30 some odd dollars a pop, I haven't had too much money to buy a new one.  I got on finally though this paycheck, so once it comes in I'll post pictures up of what I have been working on.

The Reaver Titan is coming along, and I am done with the guns and almost done with the legs now.  I was having trouble settling on which copper color to buy from what brand, and after testing out a plethora of them, I finally settled on GW's.  I'm not as fan of GW's paints normally, but their copper goes on very smooth and coats very nicely with only 1 or 2 coats needed for the base color.

I also am almost finished with 2 Nurgle Blight Drones I am painting on commission.  I'll have pictures of them side by side as well on here when I get the card.

Finally, I'll have pictures of my finished Nurgle Warpsmith I converted up.  The thing came out nicely in my opinion.  I love the final look.  The Scythe and Forge World parts really pull it all together nicely.

Anyways, there is my small post.  Enjoy if you will, and hopefully I'll have a real post filled with all sorts of goodies later in the week.
