Infected

Sorry guys. That seems to be the best place to start. I have picked up a spam email. So if you receive an email from me with no chatter and a link. PLEASE do not open the link just bin the email. It is only advertising weight loss and let's be honest. Eat less and move more. There that covers it all you need to know about loosing weight in one sentence and no link involved.









 Wargames wise I have re-based these to fit my Mahdists You have seen them before on different bases, so don't think they are new, just a re-base. I have submitted some more Pendraken 10mm Mahdist to the painting challenge but they only went on to Curt's blog yesterday so I should be able to show them on Saturday.

As I have mentioned the challenge I should say I have now exceeded my points target so will need to set a new one. As this is my first time in the challenge I have no idea of what I can get done. So I am open to suggestions of points totals. I know I will not be entering all the bonus rounds..... Last stand... is one round I will not be intending to enter. I will also need to make two terrain boards which will obviously eat into my time.


Anyway that's it for today sorry If you have received any spam email from me. Next planned post is Saturday. All the best take care Clint

    1. Thank you Irqan I thought the poster was spot on . I imagine in your line of work you might think the same but would never say it!

  2. Ah, and here I thought I'd see zombies. I died a bit inside now! :D

    Can I contact you by email somehow? I have to ask you for a favor, to help you decide haha.
    The figures look nice, too. It's amazing how much I learn just by googling all your revolts :D

  3. I'll send you a message on the board of the living dead with email details rather than over an open channel.

    Thank you Mathyoo.

  4. Damnation to all spammers!

    Rebased models still count as something useful completed :) .

    1. It is nice to know that some people have so little going on in their lives that they have to try to ruin things for others.

      I appreciate that Re-basing counts, and sometimes is vital, but it's hardly exciting. Thanks though Hugh.

  5. Love the poster! The minis are pretty smart too, but as for the total, I wouldn't worry too much after all it's your hobby. You've done amazingly so far, but if you've got other projects that need working on then I would just up it slightly and then you won't feel under any pressure.

    1. Thank you Michael. I want to push myself with the points though. But I don't want a round number I want a quirky number one that will make people think why has he picked that! I have some non painting projects as well Ones that do not involve Camels! I will just have to play it by ear I think.

  7. To lose weight, don't diet but change your life style. Start by cutting out sugar and eating more food with minimal calories, i.e. unprocessed vegetable matter of one sort or another. John :)

    1. The whole point John is that I don't need a spam email from a slimming company/product which infects a computer. The whole world can do without that.

      I do agree change your Lifestyle if you want to loose weight. Thank you.

  8. Don't eat spam is my advice.
    I think it's quite brave of you rebasing figures as it's a thankless soul destroying task, but sometimes necessary.
    You need a new target number ? - Then throw some dice it's the wargamers way !
    Love the new banner picture of Lawrence btw.

    1. Thank you Jo. I think rolling a dice might be a good solution... It's a very apt way of getting a semi Random number.
      Glad you like the Larry banner, I wanted a change from the Moonscape but had not settled on exactly what I did want.

    1. I have nothing negative to tell you at all. You like many of us, have a fine wargamers physique!

    1. Thank you Simon, I appreciate the understanding from a professional.

      Just broken the arm of one of the next batch for the painting challenge.... was attempting to graft a flag on a 10mm figure..... I guess it serves me right! Oh well.

  11. I love the poster, Clint! Perhaps explains too why I want to move to the wilds of northern Michigan! Less people equal less stress! ;)
    I've been too busy to post or comment much, but I have been keeping tabs on my fellow bloggers and have been impressed( and drooling) over the quantity and quality of the work for the painting challenge.

  12. I got the spam as well, but didn't open it. I got this strange one from Fran about a year ago about lactating mothers and I knew right away not to open that one!

    I too shall exceed my initial point goal, but I won't be setting a new one as I don't want to pressure myself. Rather I am going to paint some of the more elaborate sculpts and take my time with them. Whatever you decide to do, have fun with the sculpts you choose.

    1. Thank you Anne. I am coming close to picking a number now. Unlike you I do want the pressure in order to motivate myself. But I don't want too much pressure, that would be a bad thing.

    1. Thanks Pete. Eating less and moving more is not easy at all. All the stores are designed to tempt us. Which is why it's good not to go to too many wargames shows! Although Shinnieitis only affects the wallet (and the ears when you get home!
