Archon of the Twinned Blades

*Warning* Crappy picture alert *Warning*

So being winter here in England its pretty much dark all day. yes the suns up and its theres plenty of light....but its not very much. So pictures are going to be of low quality!

First of 2 archons i have assembled already. Fluff behind my Kabal uses a pair of twin sisters as kabal rulers. Working on getting it all tidied up, so will share soon. Loved this model to paint, its just so detailed, and i'm reasonably happy with the finish. Agoniser could maybe use a touch or two. Also finished the "hangers" for the raider. Used them as test schemes for the armour before touching the archon,did find one major problem....the Warriors are too detailed! One of them took me 2 hours to finish one soldier...Going to do their raider next, before moving onto other things.

In other news have my Cobra (and a Hornet) ordered so hoping i'll see them soon. Have another comp in February, so need my superheavy finished, and need to finish my 2 Nightwings as well. Now i've started on my Kabal i'll be moving over to them soon

Week off, what to do....

Yay week off work until christmas, then few days off the other side.

Now what to do...guess i could always embark in an epic painting few days

For those of you who don't frequent the BoLS lounge i've scratch built a Cronos pain engine, so he'll being seeing the brush

My Dark Eldar plans for paint are for Hemo constructs, blue/purple for Kabals, Grey for Wych cults and Red/orange for street gangers. That way they show clearly that each "faction" is seperate, but fight together. So this guys going to be seeing some green!

In other painting bits, got Lelith, Urien, 2 Archons, 1 raider and 20 of both wyches and warriors to do...and a Talos to build/convert. So plenty to keep me busy!

In addition...i've decided to use my newest pay packet (its lovely) and early christmas money to buy a FW Eldar cobra. Got a healthy air force already...need a super heavy. And seeing as the Phantom titan is still in the distance the Cobra will win for time being. I think. Need to balence cobra and scorpion against each other

Brighton Warlords Doubles Tournie

Had my first tournement this weekend just gone. Left a really good impression with me as we had loads of fun, did pretty well and met a whole bunch of new folk...even if it did mean a 2 hour drive to get there.

Was a well done tournement, with FO charts restricted to all slots having to balence (must have 1 FA, Elites and Heavy before you can get a 2nd in one of those...) so no lists of too overpoweredness...althgouh still a few slightly cheeky lists in there...:p. We played with Tau and Armoured Imperial Guard forces. Our list composed of;

Tau Commander, 2 Crisis Suits, 2 unit of Firewarriors, 3 Broadsides with Shield droness, allied with 1 Leman Russ Vanquisher, 2 regular Russes, an armoured sentinel and a chimera with a small guard squad inside. So good strong gunline, with a hellof a punch, but not so good in combat...

Don't have the memory to give full battle reports, but i'll give an overview on the highlights.

GAME 1-Dawn of War, Annihaltion.

Drew a Eldar/Eldar list with a jetbike council and pathfinders. Few questionable calls on rules were let slip (can you fortune before they move on the board? And can you claim the jetbike free move in the assault phase if you turboboost?) but end result was a loss for us.

GAME 2-Pitched Battle, Seize Ground, 5 objectives.

Against a combined Marine/Mech guard list. Were agains the guys who overall came last, but thanks to some awful shooting and deepstriking mishaps we were close to a draw. They were very slow in deployment and movement, so the game ended on turn 4. Highlights include a 10 man assault squad deepstriking in, rolling a 1 to run, not spreading out at all and taking 90% casulties from a battlecannon next turn... We win!

GAME 3-Spearhead, Capture and Control.

Against another Tau, allied with Blood Angels. Highlights broadsides actually managing to kill something! They'd gone 2 games so far and had survived both of them, but had only imobilised a Wave Serpent, a Drednaught and a Land Raider so them blowing a Death Company drednaught apart was very welcome! Other highlights were 1 lone firewarrior sitting in a bunker and survivning an auto cannon + heavy bolters from a stormraven, devilfish fire and a battlecannon shot that scattered 9 inches onto him to hold our objective on the last turn! Result - We win!

GAME 4-Pitched Battle, Capture and Control.

Played a Chaos Marines List with 2 defilers, and a few demon princes, including the beautiful FW one. These guys took best painted army in the end and definently deserve it. Firewarriors were especially useless this game, as were the broadsides again, only managing to wound a DP once, and blow a rhino up...Highlights include the sentinel holding up a squad of CSM armed with krak grenades and 1 power fist for 4 full turns before exploding, a defiler falling 1 inch short of assaulting the Vanquisher Russ, which then blew him apart the following turn and a squad of firewarriors rapid firing a squad of CSM on an objective, causing 14 wounds, and having all of them saved (grrrr). Result - We lose :(

GAME 5-Spearhead, Annihaltion.

Against an ork list, with over 100 bodies on the table...only made it to the end of turn 4 cos of sheer volume and time of moving. 2 huge boyz units and 2 huge grot units charging under a landing pad gave the battle cannnons plenty to shoot...if it weren't for their massive scatter everyturn. Again my broadsides proved their worth, and took 4 turns to immobilise 1 KillaKan...*sigh*...would say they weren't worth their points but they absorbed so much loota firepower...Highlights including the sentinel holding 2 seperate units of deffkoptas in combat from turn 2 till end of game...and on turn 3 having a boyz unit try to kill it (cos the Koptas couldn't hurt AV12)...only for them to fail to damage with their furious charge, and then them be stuck in combat with it as well, a shokkgun going double 1 and taking himself and a unit of lootas to the grave for 2 nice killpoints, and a unit of grots with a big mek assaulting the broadsides, who's frisbee shield drones killed 2, killed 3 more with their own attacks, forced a retreat, ran them down and killed them for another 2 points...End Result - We Win!

GAME 6-Dawn of War, sieze ground, 3 objectives.

Urgh...our only game against a power list. Least fun game as well. Nob bikers and traitor airborne guard. On the deployment that suited them best really. If we'd had them on spearhead might have had a chance...but when they deploy on the centre line...with first turn...nope. Highlights include a turn 2 charge from the bikers killing 2 tanks and the sentinel with one squad, in one round of combat, firewarriors holding one bike in combat for 2 turns and my broadsides finally managing to earn their points back. The lone suit had 1 drone killed in turn 2 so ran away (stupid really), so the other 2 managed to kill 3 Vendettas and 1 Vulture, survived an amazing amount of firepower and manged to clear one objective of guardsmen in the last turn. 1 nob biker squadron hold centre 2 objectives so we lose

Good fun this weekend, did a lot better than we expected to (11 out of 28). We were a mere 56 victory points behind 10th place...and if we'd got our WYSIWYG points (2 of the guardsmen didn't have grenades) we'd have come 7th. Still it was amazing fun and i can't wait for next one in April...but by then people had better look out...

The Dark Eldar are on their way :D

And away!

Right i'm off to the In Laws for a week (joys). so thought i'd leave you with 3 things...

1) CoD Black Ops is ace, and if you don't play single player on Veteran you're a pussy

2) DE codex is amazing. The fluff is deep and rich, exactly what was needed, the models are wonderful and the rules are a perfect balence, nearly every unit is competitive (nearly...Quins are the poor CC choice in Elites, i'm still not sold on scourges, and hellions don't do it for me)

3) My double tourny army is done...heres a poor picture of the Battlesuits on the shelf

What did I miss?

Ok so a month and a half is a long vacancy....soory about that. Thats what a broken laptop and Halo Reach does to you! Laptops still not fixed, so piggybacking the missus' for the time being..

So its gonna be a long post....both 40k and video games to talk about!

First up...the immediate cause of my dissapearace...Halo Reach!

Simply brilliant game, with a proper review to come soon. Single player is shortish, so played it through on solo heroic and legendary in 3-4 days. But the multiplayer is where its at. Some stuff, as per usual is broken, glitchy, over powered, underpowered but overall its great. New modes like Invasion spice up the already great Halo 3 multiplayer and armour abilities just mix it up more. With the rank cap coming off very soon, and the first map pack to bring more variety to it, it will continue to improve

And now my future....40k bits!

First off been busy preparing and play testing for a double tournement in my local area. Playing my Tau with my mates Imperial Guard Armoured Company and in play testing its a hella scary gun line. Against double Eldar list we killed 2 Wraithlords and an Avatar in one turn of shooting. Feeling good about our chances, as long as theres not too much assault stuff.

And Dark Eldar! Yes my dark kindred return to tabletops in force. The new codex is wonderful, still waiting on mine...but the rules are hard, the fluff is wonderful and the models simply perfect. Thinking of a Hemo/Wych cult mix with aircraft in support....

Photos of mucho Tau stuff to come when i get my laptop back!

See you laters!

Clan Rats, Phoenix Lords and Tanks!

Eclectic posting list here...i'm winding down the painting binge i've been on. Ordered a resin base for Karandaras from Dragon Forge Games, might do that and get him in GD this year. Know i won't win anything, but would be nice to enter something for once!

Photo time!

First up an old clanrat I painted up in an hour for a painting competion in store. Nothing fancy, just used it as an excuse to work on layering in the muscles on the arms, and rusty metal on his back and weapon. Didn't win anything, but the standard even in store, just on rats was insane!

With Karandaras and Fuegan done I now have a completed Phoenix Court. You can easily compare my early work (Asurmen, Maugan Ra) with my newest...definently grown as a painter. (and yes i knwo Zain Jar is missing her Trisikle. Fell off and haven't got around to pinning yet)

And finally with my Fire Prisms all done I took this opportunity to get a shot of my Eldar Tank Host. 4 Fire Prisms, 3 Wave Serpents, a Falcon, a Nightspinner and a FW Firestorm, with 2 Warwalkers for support. Anyone feeling particularly opservant will notice that all Fire Prisms are diagonal stripes, Wave Serpents Vertical stripes and Falcon chassis are Chevrons. Also every tank is named, with its name in "runes" (that are actually Mandarin Chinese translations in symbols) next to the pilot.

Isle of Blood. High Elves review

Can only review half of it cos I swapped my rat folk out someone elses pointy ears, so i have double the number of elves and no skaven i'd never use. Gonna break it down

Box Set

The artwork on the box is wonderful as is the beginners booklet in there. The dice are still dice, with larger ones for scatter and artillery. Box also features whippy sticks and a set of templates. While they aren't as pretty as the rustic bronze special edition ones you can buy they are very nice. But main useful bit is the mini rule book, saving lugging the massive tome that is the 8th ed rule book around (if you want one theres a few on ebay for about £15 each...)


As all the promo material shows they are gorgeous models. The sprues are packed, made swapping them out a bit of a challenge, and we missed bits when swapping them. Means I have a seaguard without a instrument, and he has a rat ogre without a head.


Centre piece of the army this guy looks great (and based on games in store yesterday kicks serious ***). Being click together hes a bit of a paint to build (has to be done in exactly the correct order). The unpainted detail on the wings feathers particularly is wonderful and the pose is also great. Much better than the old griffon model in my opinion. Only critiscism is how ingrained the prince is to the model. His legs and hips are moulded on the halves of the torso as is the arm carrying the lance, the body slots into that, and then his head is part of the back of the seat. Although not a big deal it makes painting them seperatly or converting it to a standalone griffon or another character would be very tricky.


Again gorgeous model. Torso connects to legs connects to face, similar to the Space Marine captain in Black Reach. The base in particular is of note, its just calling out for some lighting inside it. However it is very flimsy in some places, having broken a bit of it off while pushing the model together


10 reavers on the table looks a bit intimidating to me. Love the champion in this group. However another complaint here is the lack of customisabliity. The heads are attached the a throat piece that only fits onto one torso. There no swapping heads or differing one rider horse combo to his brother from the other set. But thats only minor. Also no option for banner or musician...


Both the Swordmasters and the sea guard are wonderfully detailed and with there banners with raised details (and the sea guards shields) they are going to be fun to paint. Assembly on them all was very simple, with only 1 arm on the sea guard and nothing at all on the Sword masters, meant i got the entire 2 box worths (minus 2nd mage and griffon) clipped off, cleaned off and assembled inside 3 or so hours.

Picture shows Reavers at the back, with the mage in top right. The 2 squads of swordmasters are on the left (one hiding behind the griffons wings), and one super squad of seaguard (with 2 banners...) are on the right

These guys are now in the holding cycle of my painting list, waiting for a decent day to get them sprayed and started.

Picture Time!

Its show time! As promised, new camera so pictures...still working out some of the nuances so some of them are a bit out of focus on the backs of frame.

Fire Prism!



And Finally my XV8 Shas'o.

Theres a few others pictures to come, but will spread them out a bit...

In Videogaming news Minervas Den DLC for Bioshock2 is out. And its awesome. Much bigger than I was expecting.

Also Dead Rising Case Zero is out. As a fan of DR I love it, so advise people to go out and get it.

The Final 2 Phoenix Lords

Karandaras I finished last week, and anyone who's seen my thread on BoLS will have seen him. Really enjoyed painting him

And 1 day into my challenge i've finished the first model (after 3 days). This guy...i didn't enjoy painting as much. It just felts a bit cluttered, particularly around his left shoulder. Happy with the dragon scales on the tabard and helmet though and the magma-y effect on his greaves. Again another model that only sees play in Apoc games

42 day challenge

In 42 days the biggest game of the year comes out. Well for me at least. That is Halo Reach. I'd imaginge once that comes out just about every waking second will be spent on it. So I'm starting my challenge to achieve everything I can in that time frame. Bar a few days at me ladies parents for their anniversary and then a few for her birthday I have plenty of time (unless I find a job real quick). So I challenge myself to see how much i can achieve.

By September 13th i aim to have completed...

1 Nightwing
1 Guardian Squad
All my Dire Avengers
Last Fireprism
My Squad of Fire Warriors
2 XV8 Suits
1 Broadside
1 Devilfish
And have all my outstanding Forge World models built, cleaned and maybe sprayed.

Also want to finish Dirt 2, Split Second and Splinter Cell Conviction in that time.

Having goals keeps me busy!

A Bird! A Plane! No is FW's flying dog Skull

Seriously? Not only does it look like a flying dog skull (complete with snout, ears and eyeballs) but now every space marine army, not just Blood Angels can take a fast skimmer.

We Eldar better get some serious loving in the next codex and IA book....

Tuesday, 27 July 2010

And done...

And hes done. Without a doubt the best painted of all my wraithlords (and probably the rest of my army) hes going to make a fine centre point. The swords worked quite well i think, maybe a bit more practise in the future on things.

Just delved into my army case for the next thing to paint. Got Fuegan, Karandaras, a guardian weapon platform that needs fixing/magnetising and the black reach marine commander. Those should keep me entertained for the next few days.

Going home this weekend for parents 25th wedding anniversary so won't get much done. Then got my girlfriends parents, also 25th anniversary week after that so another long trip.

Upon this rock, he dies

So due to bad weather my painting hours have been short of late, so last two days i've only got about 4-5 hours in (unemployment does have its benefits. Being unemployed gives me time to paint, but no money to buy models with. Getting a job would provide said money, but alas no time to paint)

The base is now done...i think. Don't think theres anything outstanding. This is actual the first space marine i ever painted. Therefore it had to be a space smurf on that slat of ferrocrete. It will also be the last ultramarine ever do as other than one casulty being done in the colours of my friends marines (who is going on fliers base as a kill trophy) from now on they will be done in the colours of my custom chapter (which i have the ideas for but army is well down the line).

Thinking i'm going to push myself on this model, got ideas for the power swords that are probably beyond my ability but gonna give them a try. Hope for better weather and more painting time in!

Samurai Wraithlord and more High Elves

And the finished article (bar paint of course, but as i type its sitting drying from its base spray). All the weapons, down to the hands are magnetised should they need posing or changing, something i intend to start doing on all models like this. Looking forward to painting him!

Also got this

My newset high elf. The paint scheme definently works on IC's just got to wait and see it on rank and file troops. Gonna have to get better at doing faces now in fantasy, seeing as no helmets to cover faces now!

Combat Wraithlord

Next wraithlord. Wanted something a little different to the standard so used the marine casulty from the space marine casultie set, lying propped up against the ruins of an imperial city wildly firing his bolt pistol into the 25 foot creature as it pins the marine down and puts the sword to his neck. Also enacted another wish for a wraithlord by giving him a 2nd sword, pointing backwards in a back hand martial stance. Then 2 scatterlasers (obv counts as one, not two or twinlinked for the rules) to the arms for a Warmachine look.

Once this is done I only have...a few more ideas for custom lords. This is my first shot at converting (even if it is only the bended knee). Be finishing the torso and arms tomorrow...

The High Elves of Corcesceth

So i've decided to start Fantasy in 8th edition. I'm doing High Elves cos I love the models, the rules and generally all things Elvish. But I hate painting in White and Blue so i'm going with something a little different. Written a bit of fan-fluff to explain my colours

Prior to the chaos incursions of dark elves, beasts and deamons that plagued Ulthuan for so long began, before contact with the human civilisations in the Old World, the elves of central Tiranoc lived peacefully off the land in the same way that all of their kin did. This changed during the reign of the Phoenix King Caledor the Second. A massive chaos incursion landed on the coasts in an attempt to avoid the road well travelled and catch their foes unawares, while most of the army was abroad, in battle with the dwarves. After encountering little resistance as expected they came across the army of the Prince Corcesceth waiting for them on the plains of Haedris.
A desperate bloody battle ensued with the Elves fighting heavily outnumbered, buying time for the main armies to mobilise, to reinforce them. However it was a losing battle. The elves were punished heavily. Corcesceth saw his uncle, his brother and his only son killed before his eyes as the battle lines of chaos encroached further across the plain. A flurry of arrows felled his steed from underneath him and dropped him, unceremoniously on the side of the plain. Forces were thin here as an impenetrable forest guarded this flank. As he lay there watching his kin fall, selling their lives dearly on this plain he prayed to Asuryan for deliverance. His prayers were answered with a screech. The forest exploded, near him trees flying and scattering surrounding troops on both sides. But it was not the salvation he had prayed for. Out of the forest strode the Keeper of Secrets, a greater demon of Tzeentch. Corcesceth slumped his head to the ground wondering why his gods had abandoned him on this field when a second deeper screech rang out over the plain. From the black storm clouds advancing over the Chaos lines swept a dragon of jet black scales, burning with an eldritch red glow. As it flew over the lines of battle great gouts of white hot flame erupted from its mouth, immolating the chaos lines, before it swooped in on Corcesceth’s position. The Lord of Change swung his twisted weapon at the dragon only to have it deftly avoided. The dragon lunged in and grabbed the daemons neck in its claws, and in a magically amplified noise, shattered it in two places. It pulled the demons head next to its own, looked into the eyes of the beast and once more unleashed its magical flame into the beasts face. When the dragon released the demon it slumped to the ground, headless and defeated before vanishing back to the warp. Crushed by the loss of the demon and the appearance of the powerful Star Dragon much of the chaos line fled. It was quickly chased down and cut apart by vengeful High Elves.
After the battle the fallen elves were seen to in the respectful manner expected of their kin. The bodies of their enemies were removed, burnt in massive pyres to honour the flame of the dragon that had saved them all. A year later the plains of Haedris, were no longer the green grass they once were, but awash with a new red flower, only growing in places where the dragons breath had cleansed the earth. Prince Corcesceth decided to adopt these colours into his kinsman’s martial uniform as a reminder of the cost of their safety.
However other citizens of Ulthuan regard them with suspicion. Were Corcesceth’s prayers answered by a chaos god before his own? And any elf abandoning the white robes of his race in favour of the blood red of battle must be showing signs of taint mustn’t they? And how did any elf live so long with no signs of ageing? Regardless of these suspicions Corcesceth still rules over the lands, riding into battle astride his saviour, Elarique to keep his lands free, and fought in the great campaign during the reign of Finubar the Seafarer pushing the last great chaos excursion from their lands.

So only one model (2nds underway) at present but I like it personally. Its going to be a while before i'm up to gameplay strength (although the intro box is apparantly High Elves vs Skaven so i'll be getting that probably)

Cars + Speed + Criterion = Win

Take abreak from wargaming, and painting to talk about games now.

There s basically nothing i want between here and Halo Reach now. Kinda sucks but means i'll finish a lot of games i haven't yet (L4D2, Saboteur, DA;O, Dirt2, Conviction).

And yes this caught my eye. Repeatedly. There might actual be a good Need for Speed game this year. After all Criterion are gods of racing (just look at any game in the Burnout series after 1).

Gorgoues cars, awesome soundtrack and a good online component by looks of it. Looking forward to strapping a set of red and blues on my Lambo and hunting down some street racing scum.

Settled in!

So all moved back in now, got set up, internet and back on the painting horse. Still a member of the unemployed, so unless the interview on monday goes well i won't be funding either of my hobbies for a while i think.

So here something i did earlier...

The first of my 2 Forgeworld Nightwings and the base of it. The base is a resin base from Iron Halo, a top notch company I would recommend...need to buy more for some of my other stuff.

Flyer is sprayed but still not painted, but the base is now painted, to match the rest of my bases (ruined city scape). Flyer is next thing on my list!

In other news I'm heartily considering starting a Fantasy army, probably high elves (i love me point ears). This is promoted by having a nice idea for a very different paint scheme on them (have to wait and see if it works). Just have to wait and see. If Dark Eldar get an announcement at Gamesday (and I eventually find someone willing to employ me) then fantasy might hit the back burner for a little longer.

Saturday, 26 June 2010


OK so i've been away for a little bit. Just finihsed my degree and moving house so not had much face time with the internet. Will post a more sizable welcome bacl post when my interent sorts itself out.

So until next time (covering my thoughts on E3, my new eldar tanks and other stuff) i'll see you soon!

Eldar. Treading water in 5th ed?

I have a large Eldar army. 9000 points large. It was my first army and it continues to grow (just started work on my 4th Wraithlord and will soon add one of the awesome new nightspinners and my 4th fire prism in. But reading the BoLs forum recently i happened upon a thread talking about what Eldar need to modify everything that already exists to work.

This list included lots of USR's to squad, free exarches and a few other things but the big two that caught my eye were;
All tanks/vypers/Wraithlords take a shuriken cannon as there default, already included in the price, not expecting us to have to pay for it
Make it a skill army. Increase WS and BS by 1 to represent 1000's of years of training.

I've heard this 2nd one before and i still think its a good idea. Eldar are no longer physic master (like they should be) or the most mobile army (like they should be) why not make them the most practised? We're a glass cannon army that have trained for 1000's of years but get outshot by guardsmen.

Also our skimmers are overpriced. End of Argument (give all tanks the serpents energy field rules and then maybe we're talking)

Just have to wait patiently for our new codex (mid to late next year at the absolute earliest), the FW book we're in (IA10) and a look at the dark eldar book when it gets out to see what we might expect.

Argh one exam down

Nothing beats the feeling of coming out of an exam feeling like you've knocked it out of the park.

Heres the gun drone i've done in between revision to blow off a little steam. Think its looks pretty good. Bit darker than the ones in the codex in the colour scheme but i like it. Bit more camoflagey than a bright orange. Well as camoflagey as a shade of orange will ever get in a grey city scape.

Exams and bleurgh

Who knew the final exams at the end of a 4 year degree in Aerospace engineering would be so hard?

Microstructural characterisation and spectroscopy (and thats just the name of the module) is evil. Who sets questions on something he's never mentioned before in lectures, is not in the notes and was only discovered last year when it won the Nobel prize? Argh!

In other more blog-orientated news Spearhead gets released in a few days. i was hoping to have read it by now in my housemates early subscriber White Dwarf but its not turned up yet, so i wait like everyone else. The idea of massive tank battles is good by me, last time i played an apoc game i only fielded an Eldar tank host...3000 points of tanks is pretty. With only 2 Tau tanks so far they won't reach the table, but my Ulthwe tank host, with the addition of a new fire prism and nightspinner should be a good game :D. That against my housemates Imperial fist armoured company...looking forward to it.

Well back to it...8 days of revision and 7 hours of exams and i'll be no longer a student!

Tuesday, 18 May 2010

Been pretty busy so far so not had much time to post anything. In the middle of my exams so not doing a lot of gaming or modelling so when they're all over (15 days) and there should be more stuff coming!

Alright sorry about the awful picture, first time trying to photo a model...
Well theres a test model, my Kroot shaper in my newly started Tau army. Pretty happy with how its turned out for a few hours work. Never fails to amaze me how quickly the pile of paints on my desk grows as i paint a model, and just how many are in it by the end. Starts with camo green, snakebite leather and a devlan mud wash, and before long theres scab and blood red, gold, bronze, bleached bone, shadow grey, ice blue, black, red washes, white, yellow, khaki, tau sept ochre and a few others...

Anyway back to revision. Rest of this guys squad and my work in progress stealth suits to come!

Well Introductionary Post!

Well guess i'd better set this up after thinking it through a while. Doubt anyone will read it but hey i like to say stuff!

As the name suggests i'm going to talk a lot about my two hobbies. Those being 360 (and wii, ds and little bit of pc) gaming and Warhammer 40K. Both pretty geeky i'll admit but both really fun! An obviously a bit expensive. With one game being £40 and a box for a model looking at £18 its not suprising i'm poor. Combine into that i'm supposed to be a student living off beans and 2p noodles and life is pretty hectic. Then balence doing a Masters Degree in what equates to rocket science and well i'm sure you can understand i'm pretty busy!

I'll think of something actually constructive to say soon. In the mean time go play the Reach beta!
