GW Pertinent Competition

So the GW Pertinent Blog is having a competition to name three of my personal favorite posts from its site.  After looking at a lot of the stuff on the site, here's my favorite things:

1)  Travel Space Hulk Series
I own a copy of Space Hulk (something I might sell soon because I don't have the time to play it anymore) and I know how hard it can be to set up a game in my own home.  I wouldn't even DARE bring it on the road with me though.  But they made a version that is both portable, and looks good.  Not to mention that it has magnets.

2)  Inspiration from Dad
I enjoy the whole 'family bonding' thing (probably because ours doesn't get any), and it's always nice to see a father introduce his son into wargaming.  This bell tower looks awesome, and I find it hard to believe that it uses mainly business cards.  Also, the lights, bell, and water fountain work, with the first two able to be wired up, and the water fountain giving the illusion of running water.

3)  Space Sharks Terminators
Those who follow my blog know that I have a love for Terminators, and coupled with the fact they they're magnetized is even better.  I know that he didn't actually magnetize them, but they still ARE magnetized, which means I just like them more.  I can't wait to see them painted.

Life is in the way

So I know that I haven't updated anything here for the past two week, but I've been very busy in the real world. However, I have several things in the pipe for everyone:
1)  GK Review
Everyone and their grandmother seems to have their own two cents on the release, so I might as well chime in
2)  Tutorial
Using a Dremel and an X-Acto, I make Battle Damage on buildings and tanks
3)  Tutorial
I'm going to try and build an adequate light box with foamboard and paper
4)  Secret Special
All I'll say is that it's going to be a new series on my blog.

Oh Look, Something New, and Good News

If you didn't notice, there is now a blogroll of the blogs that I follow on the left hand side of the blog.  I know that this list is limited, so if you want to add your blog to it, then contact me at howard.chen1997 at  Also, some good news- For those of you who know of my hobby plight, my father recently decided to return to me the 40k stuff that he took away, with the help of some of my school teachers and others.  That means that I can go back to gaming again, but there's always bad news to go with good.  I've realized that the way he stuffed all of the stuff into a box has seriously ruined my painted models' paintjobs, and he also seems to have lost/permanently destroyed several models/books/posters.  This is really for the people who offered me some items to help me rebuild my army and those who are concerned about how I'm doing.  Well, have a great day.
