The Lulls

Well, been a bit of a lull here.  Work has hit a bit of a odd stretch so it's been a bit of an inspirational drag.  So not only haven't I gotten a game played in a while, I also haven't made any progress on the modelling front as well.  But I am on vacation starting when I get off of work Thursday evening and I have a couple short trips planned.  This should get me a reboot and we'll get cranking on some stuff again.
But all is not totally lost.  I have done a bit of work getting my Geek Shelf which is the top of my computer desk organized and all displayed out.  It's a pretty good homage to a large part of what I enjoy in the realm of geeking.  You'll find everything from Autobots to X-Wings, Adama to Vultan, Arcturan Guard to Victor (of the Doom pedigree) present including a freebie cup from the one GW Games Day I managed to attend and a signed shirt giveaway from a Twitch Channel I follow.
Also I've been playing around a bit with World of Warships.  I haven't been into my World of Tanks for a few years now but after watching a few Twitch streams of it, I wanted to try the Warships variety.  I'm still early on into having just unlocked a Level III German cruiser a few days ago.  It's the Kolberg-class that even though the game doesn't allow it, I have named the Adler.  Most of the games that I've played have been with my Level II Dresden-class cruiser that I am calling Lowe.

So that's it for now, just a short post but we'll be back into it post vacation I hope.  That's for the views and feel free to leave comments or links to pics of your own geek shelves in the replies.  See you all next time!


BattleTech and Wee Bit of Rogue Stars

So I'm working on cleaning up some of the mechs that had have piled up and don't have a current home.  My goal is to organize them into companies of different units I like, as well as can stand the color scheme of (I'm looking at you Orloff Grenadiers).  First up is a unit from the Donegal Guards.  This is one the core Lyran Commonwealth units and have a great tradition/flavor built into them with the ties to Ireland on Terra.
4th Donegal Guard Regiment
Colonel Seamus Killkinny

2nd Battalion
Major Claus Hemri 
3rd Company
Captain Jessica Eisenbach, Atlas
Lt. Tobin Hausmann, Zeus
2nd Lt. Sarah Mayhew, Zeus
2nd Lt. Vincent Conroy, Guillotine
1st Lance
Lt. Peter Fitzcairn, Battlemaster
Sonja McTavish, Thunderbolt
Joseph Hyde, Dragon
Stephen St. Jaimes, Dragon
2nd Lance
2nd Lt. Paul Kearns, Griffin
Karen Tierny, Cicada
James Bruce, Cidada
Sean Ceirdwyn, Commando
3rd Lance
2nd Lt. Andrew Fisher, Jaegermech
Emily Bancroft, Trebuchet
Reginald Beckett, Trebuchet
Paul O'Sullivan, Blackjack

It's a nice standard unit of pre=3025 mechs that shows plenty of salvage from clashes against Houses Kurita, Liao, and Marik.  It's fairly balanced as far as weight and throwing power and would do fairly well in a scrap I think.
I also added another model to my Rogue Stars pool of characters.  Every unit of marines needs that grizzled veteran sergeant so I give you Sergeant Major Phillip Fawkes.  I'm still working on a paint scheme idea for these guys so if any of you out there have a great idea, leave me a comment.

That's all for now and I'll see you all next time.
