It’s been a while…

Alright. It’s definitely been a while. Essentially, I have a terrible habit of procrastinating. Also, remember that video that was working on? When I lost all the footage and started from scratch I kinda got a bit discouraged. So everything got pushed to the side for a little while. Hoping to pick things up in the new year. On top of the usual gaming stuff that I would rant about I have some more things I’ll be adding to the list.

My new thing to rant about is Warhammer 40k. I’ve played a bit off and on for the last few years using a friends army. Earlier this year he got me a 500-ish point army to start me off. I’ve built on it ever since and have a pretty solid 1500-2000 point army list. There are still a few things that I am borrowing that I need to purchase but that should happen soon. I’ll be putting up pictures of my progress in painting my army. I’m a decent artist when it comes to drawing but painting has always been a problem for me. So it’s not the best paint job. I’ve definitely seen worse but I would like to get better. Seeing as I play Tyranids which is a horde army that uses a lot of models, hopefully I’ll get better as I go through. I probably should have started painting some of the smaller infantry models instead of jumping right in and painting huge Monstrous Creatures with a ton of little details on them.

Between working on WH40k stuff and whatever else real life throws my way I haven’t actually had the chance to play a lot of games lately either. Even these past few days where I had planned to just sit here and blast through a bunch of games, I’ve instead found myself painting models and watching WH40k Battle reports. Which I plan on doing once I get my army fully painted and have a decent table set up with terrain and buildings.

As usual I’ve been playing a bit of WoW. Not as much as I normally do. Fallen behind a bit and have some catching up to do. I’ve also been playing Borderlands 2. Finally. Just picked it up on Steam last week. Huge fan of the first. Played through it a bunch of times. Not all that far into BL2 yet but it really is pretty awesome and fun as hell. Also grabbed a game called Faster Than Light. This game is so good that any words that I try to think to write about it just don’t seem to do it justice. It’s this epic space battle game where you travel from sector to sector running form rebels. No game is ever the same. All the encounters and loot you pick up along the way are randomized. It can actually be quite challenging sometimes if you happen to get through a few of the first few sectors and don’t really find anything to upgrade your ship. Then suddenly this behemoth of a vessel just wrecks the hell out of you. You can also get boarded and have to fight off the intruders which can be a pain in the ass sometimes while simultaneously repairing your ship and fighting off an enemy ship. It’s ridiculously good. Definitely check it out. Faster than Light official website.

That’s all for now. Just wanted to toss out a quick update. Thanks for reading folks. See you in the new year. Cheers!
