The ancient old one returns! Brushoff 2013!

Well, it has been a few months since my last post and I have really neglected this blog. Truth be told, just various things, work, lack of actually playing (hard to find a regular player around here) and so forth....just life.

I struggled to get my entries done with the short deadline, I thought I had plenty of time then near the end of the the deadline my mother-in-law ends up in the hospital in ICU this past week. It has been rough on my wife and thus rough on me....things will work out in due course, it seems her dad and her both think the worst. I won't until I hear otherwise.....I try to never assume anything. Guess I learned something when I took parapsychology in college!

In any case here are my four entries this year....not my best work and mind you only the two single packs are the painted entries this year.

Single Pack Entry - Winged Nightmare in mushroom forest.

Single Pack Entry- Scrawny Ones - Stocking up for the winter

Kulten Entry- Death Cult

Kulten Entry- Arcane Seekers

The End is Near!

Well. it has been a long time since I posted, but there hasn't bee much going on with the world of gaming of late with Strange Aeons as my friend Ryan has been super busy with his wife's pregnancy, maybe once the baby arrives and things calm down we can get back into the adventures of the insanity of the gaming mind!

Cthulhu has arrived on Monday along with my other Reaper Bones goodies! I will post up some images of the figures I have already added to the pile for Strange Aeons at a later time but I will tease you with images of Cthulhu!

The big guy with a figure next to him so you can get an idea of scale!
Also, he is HEAVY as hell!

It's Cthulhu time!

Don't hate me because I am an Elder god!

A moment of thought: Memorial Day

While we enjoy our games we forget the true horror and monsters in the world that our brave soldiers face every day....take a moment to remember them.

bald eagle head and american flag

To all that have served, I thank you for your service.
To all those that have died to protect our freedom, I thank you.
We as Americans are not perfect, but we try to uphold what is right.
We may not often get things right but that is an element of freedom...choice.
Be proud of those that served our country and give them the honor they deserve.
To fight takes courage, to fight with conviction takes character.

Sea Monsters Revealed Exhibit Visited

Well, it has been some time since I have posted as I have been rather busy with 40k and Bolt Action plus my Strange Aeons opponent has been rather busy since him and his wife are expecting a baby. So, I figure I would ramble a bit about visiting the Museum of Science and Industry today to see the Sea Monsters Exhibit with my wife.

This is the first start for the exhibit and will be here until September, then it is to tour the country, not sure if it will go overseas but if you have ever seen the King Tut or Bodies (either one) exhibits then this is along the same lines. It has a variety of rooms to various themes, great lighting and some amazing exhibits that is well worth the visit.

I almost died laughing when I saw that there was  Cthulu products in the gift shop on the way out including an inflatable tentacle for your hand and another one to cover your mouth. At the register they even had Cthulu mints in a tin, I may have to buy one in the future as part of a contest prize! Still the greatest find was this!

Here it is on the tip of my finger to give you an idea o the appearance.

Now, this is it next to a 28mm figure, a coffee cup an my hand.

Yea, it was $2.99 and since MOSI is just a few miniatures from my job I can always drive over in the next few months and snag a few more from the gift store. I just wanted one for now to test out as a possible scenery item or other uses in the game (like one of the scenarios in the game with the tentacles appearing). The only issue it it is designed to fit over your finger (which may not be a bad idea to keep one on my drive into work and back every day as it would be giving a new term of giving someone the tentacle!) Some type of filler and this will be IMO a great item of scenery to build! Looking forward to this!

Strange Aeons Contest: Starting to take the early sets to setup.

I hope to again do the Strange Aeons game reports contest this year. I've been a bit slow being distracted by two major 40k tournaments and some Bolt Action gaming after recovering from the "year of hell" with my mother in 2012 having some serious health issues including a tumor the size of a small grapefruit removed from her brain. Things calming finally and I am thinking ahead again. I've been out of the habit of playing for a few months between everything with my mother and my friend Ryan dropping off the radar as he has been unable to play of late due to issues with his wife's pregnancy (and that is a good excuse, always take care of family first).

Stay tuned! If you have comments, suggestions or have ideas for prize support post away and let me know!

Day 1 of a New Year: Primering!

Well, one could not ask for better weather today and I was outside primering everything I could like a mad man. Florida has a really crappy weather pattern as many of you have your own as well. Right now during the winter the weather is wonderful (this is why all the flipping snowbirds come here and I hate them, slowing down traffic, clogs up places I like to eat and don't have a flipping clue how to drive). So, when you have a nice day that is rare like this you primer all you can for the days you can't in Florida this means in a few months rain and humidity that is a pain in the ass to get any primer work done again until fall unless you have a freak weather day.

So, I primered up a few new figs that I got from the Uncle Mike's contest and another figure I got as a bonus from a company that made a mistake and sent me two of the same type,

I primered: 3 pentagram markers, 2 Scrawny Ones, Frau (from Warm Acres), zombie dog, two gun agent, agent with Tommy gun and pistol and the Ancient Warrior. Now, piled on to the list with the other stuff I have about 20 figures now to paint up and get done!
