Needed: Limited Edition Lord Chompy Bits

Can't find the guy...

Hello loyal viewers! Hate posting something like this on the blog but literally running out of areas to check. I have a friend who is desperately trying to find a Gencon Limited Edition Lord Chompy Bits for his son's birthday at the end of the month. We've checked ebay, bartertown, any a few other websites but just can't find the model. If you have one or know someone who would be interested in trading or selling it please let me know!

Halloween Troubles...

So with no major plans this evening... Which in itself is a huge issue to me... I decided to pick up an old game which I've had sitting on my shelf for some time yet never got around to playing for more than ten minutes: Fatal Frame 2.

Not much of a way to spent Halloween in my mind, but given that we had a late-night birthday celebration yesterday for a friend I figured it wasn't all bad... Didn't much feel like re-creating my costume from the night before anyway. Point being, I go and fetch the case and get everything just right, wait till around 7 when the sun is setting and the air is right, turn off all the lights and settle in on the couch in front of Titaniclese (the name given to my 64 inch). All is well, pop the game into the PS2 and let's roll.

So the game wasn't in the case.

No idea where it got to and I spent the better part of an hour turning everything upside-down inside-out looking for it, no luck and no idea where it may be... Now I'm a bit pissy, don't want to simply play a game I have beaten already, which narrows it down to two choices: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Silent Hill 5: Homecoming... Nether of which I found scary due to Shattered Memories having no enemies and 5 having your character be a combat machine... And with my luck, because I had decided to wait until 7 to start playing Gamestop was closed, so I couldn't simply go out and RE-BUY Fatal Frame 2, which I would have done... I wanted to play it that much...

So just finished up a two-hour playing of Silent Hill 5, not a bad game, just not the Halloween scare I had wanted... Sigh... I know it's just a day, just a holiday and I can have pretty much the same experience whenever I want... But something about just the, I suppose the best word is "romanticized" concept I had of playing a creepy horror game on Halloween at home by myself... Sigh... Try again next year I suppose...

Odd Man Out: Venomthropes

Some units just never find a place; usually this is deserved, but sometimes they're just the odd-man-out.

Diceheads ROAD TRIP!

Getting ready for some Team-Tournament Action!

This weekend I'll be heading up to Diceheads in Tennessee for their team tournament. My usual partner, Boss Greennutz, will be unable to make it so no Ork action this time. Instead I'll be bringing along my friend George with his Eldar. Still debating on Tyranids or Angels Sanguine for the trip but I'll be testing out my new mini-camcorder for the whole thing! Video should be up Sunday to log the trip. Hooha!

Been A While

Things have been rather insane here in my dark little world. The last month saw a rather large share of unfortunate events which kept me from posting here, but it also had a fair mix of good things.

8th Edition Fantasy is here and I'm looking to fix up my Cult of Khaine and Slaanesh WoC Forces, so look for updates on them coming up, as well as Tyranid and Angels Sanguine updates as well.

On another note, I believe I'm going to expand the blog to also speak of other gaming matters. I delve into a good amount of RPGs as well as other miniature games, and it seems rather silly to not at least mention them in some degree. That being said, in the upcoming days/weeks I'll post up some information/first hand reviews of such things like the Savage Worlds: Realms of Cthulhu game as well as the upcoming Dresden Files RPG.

Lots of ideas in store, so stay tuned!

Sob/Grey Knights For Sale

As I mentioned on my BoLS postings, I'm cutting down my armies.

That being said, I'm posting this to see if anyone is interested in buying my stuff before it hits the floors of ebay.

I have the following:

The Grey Knight army seem in my blogs before, which include the following:

-Seven terminators
-Brother Captain Stern
-Some thirty Grey Knights, about half custom built
-One Land Raider
-Two Land Raider Crusaders
-Foam army boxes for all the above-And yes, everything is painted and on Micro Art Studio Bases.

More pictures upon request.


I also have a full Sisters of Battle army, unpainted unfortunately.

This army is special to me, but alas, it must go.

-2x Cannoness, one painted, both with Micro Art Steampunk Wings
-Saint Celestein, no Iron Halo
-Four full Sob Squads, including enough Flamers/Heavy Flamers for all of them. Unsure of how many meltas I have but last check it was around five or so.
-Fifteen/Sixteen (must double check) Seripham
-Two Complete Exorcists
-One Exorcist Kit (no rhino chassy)
-Four Immmolator/Rhinos (Rhinos jazzed up with the Immolator bits. May have the turrents around somewhere)
-Small GW miniature case for the infantry models

Either lot can be yours for $500, offers negotiable.
