Cancel the Apocalypse

This started as an art blog. Still is when I can be arsed to post art of any sort. Posts are most frequently related to: Sci-fi and fantasy across all media from video games and films to tv shows foreign and domestic, my overwhelming leftist radical rage, and generalized snarky observation. I regularly get into discussions with my mutual-follow buddies and sometimes mumble about writing/the writing process.

Painted up Ezekiel of the Dark Angels as an Obsidian Paladins Librarian because why not. Pretty happy with the contrast between the gold armor and the crimson robes, as well as the force sword.

Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.

So today I played a 2000 point friendly game against my buddy Amir and his Grey Knights. I know Amir from the old local nerd store; we played at the new local nerd store. 

His list wasn’t half bad- lots of infiltrating Paladins, a razorback with some strike knights inside, several knights in cover guarding his home objective, a dreadknight, a vindicare assassin, and some other… Grey Knight-y stuff. 

My list was 2000 points worth of models that I consider my favorites and/or are well-painted. That was the criterion. So I brought my Knight, my Stormraven and Stormtalon, my hammernators, my thunderfire cannon, a squad of snipers, two half-strength squads of tactical marines in rhinos and a half-strength squad of sternguard in a rhino. Not a very competitive list, not too good at grabbing objectives, not too resilient. Bit of a glass cannon list with a few notable exceptions in lynchpin units.

My casualties were:

  • a sniper scout
  • 2 hammernators
  • a rhino
  • the thunderfire cannon

His casualties were:

  • total

I tabled the poor guy! He’s a 17 year old kid who’s only been playing about 8 months and I kicked him all up and down the board. I feel a bit bad about it honestly but we kept up the banter and jokes throughout and when it was over he thanked me for a fun game so I don’t feel *awful*.

I have decided though, that he is my apprentice now. I will teach him all that I know until he surpasses me. Shouldn’t take long honestly. :p

I am pumped up on Die Krupps and I am heading down to the nerd store for an afternoon of crushing the enemies of humanity with giant hammers and giant-er robots. AVE IMPERATOR!


"Hi Tech Low Life," Die Krupps

on a bit of a Die Krupps kick. Just as well. I was stuck on Avenged Sevenfold for like a month. Was in a metal-in-general mood for another month before that. I guess it’s time to default back toward my other comfort zone of industrial/synth-pop.


Hey so in addition to 40k I also sometimes play Warhammer Fantasy Battle. My army is Warriors of Chaos because I’ve loved the models and aesthetic since long before I had any idea they were for a game.

Here we have Archaon the Everchosen and Malroth, daemon prince of Khorne. Painted these guys about three years ago and remain crazy proud of how they came out.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

I don’t think of myself as an arachnophobe but when a 2” diameter spindly legged prehistoric hellbeast zip lines in like goddam delta force directly in front of my eyes while I’m focused on painting, yeah, I’m gonna holler a profanity or two and reach for something to kill it with.


…i’m just sayin’
