If ever there was a day to just roll over and die it’d be today. My brand new camera befell an unexpected fate today. It’s now broken, the receipt is missing and the warranty doesn’t cover water damage.
I apologise. I’m emotionally strained right now. It’s not just the camera, it’s a slew of countless other problems that have popped up in the past few days.
I had a new modeling project all set up and now I’ve nothing to document it with. I really wanted to get this built, and document it for the blog. It’ll be another two weeks before I could even consider buying another camera, and other bills and expenses stand in the way. So chances are it will be several weeks to a month.
Fuck. My. Life.
So, I’ve been purchasing and building a lot of Plague Marine Models this past month and a half. Today I planned on taking some pics, but sadly, my old Digital Camera has died. Fresh batteries, some gentle tapping, even plugging it into the PC here to run off it’s power, did nothing. So, unfortunately, I’ll have to purchase a new camera soon if I plan to continue my sparse content updates.
So it’s in the pipeline for now.
Keep it sleazy followers. Hawk’s got Nurglings to chase out of the garden.
So my two days off a week, were planned to start painting my new Nurgle Units… but we had two storms roll through. The one today was a doozy!
Sorry followers. Another week wasted.
Gird your loins followers, Paint Hawk has returned to the studio, and boy, is it dusty as hell in here! Not to worry, things are about to get much, much dirtier.
That’s right folks, Papa Nurgle is gonna be coming into the picture.
So what’s been going on with the Paint Hawk? Well, life got busy. VERY busy. New job, new schedule, other things to do and play. It’s been near on a year that I’ve been out of the 40K scene. I still have my custom made Storm Troopers to finish up painting, my army as a whole remains mostly undone.
However, I’ve been wanting to create a small force to act as an Allied Detachment. With all the crazy updates as of late, it has been hard to choose. I settled on Chaos Space Marines, specifically Plague Marines. Two reasons. One: it was my original plan. Two: I bought a bunch of plague maine colors when I got my reaper paint set… so, yeah, gotta get my 8 rot colored paints used.
Plan is a force led by Typhus, with 2 mobs of Plague Zombies, A Dreadnaught, Terminators, Land Raider, and some Jump Pack Marines.
1 HQ, 2 troops, 1 elite, 1 fast attack, and 1 heavy support. Max allotment for an Allied Force.
Walk in filth my followers, Hawk’s got a cyst to pop.
Let me share something with you all. Two of the victims in the Santa Monica shootings were Carlos Franco, and his daughter, Marcela Franco. Mr. Franco was a grounds keeper for SMC. I used to see him everyday at my job on campus. He was a nice man. A good man. Someone you always said hello to in passing. Sometimes he’d stop and ask how you were. Conversations were never much more than a few sentences… He will be missed. I can’t say that I knew the man all that well. He was kind to me though, and I will always remember him for it. I hope his family finds peace in the loss of him and his daughter.
Merry christmas, one and all. May you and your family be of good cheer. And if you’re away from family this season, like some of my friends in the Military, then I hope you are with friends, and also hope you are safe, warm, and well fed. 2012 has been a black year, but it’s almost over. May the new year treat man better than 2012. Merry Christmas.
