Heresy / Sharclons
« on: August 28, 2013, 11:45:53 PM »
Hi folks,

My other half has recently painted some of the Sharclons we picked up at Salute and posted them on our blog, Friendly Fire.  I've just noticed that has hasn't posted any pics here yet so I thought I'd do it for him while I was having my weekly lurk.

There's more pics, a bit of a review and some other fluff over on the blog, so here's the link for anyone who wants to take a gander.

The Reaper Troll is pretty cool, but the massive gun isn't very subtle.

I'm with Wyrd on this one.  Shadowrun minis that look 'just right' are fairly hard to come by.  I've converted a Shimmer to have a couple of pistols and used Kev's Orc heads to make an Orc  merc before now but I'd love some proper near-future tech non-humans without having to convert them.

Like soooo many others, I've voted for Satanica.

I'd love to see a Betty Page mini based on one of the classic Betty poses

In 28mm it would basically be the same mini with slightly longer length hair over and over...

A village mob could be really useful, though I agree that alternate unarmed/armed arms would be handy too.

There's plenty of scope for variety, basic blokes in a few different poses, blacksmith, local militia, housewife, burgomaster/local noble/merchant, tavern keeper with big club, youthful thugs, drunkard (there's always one) etc.  Reaper sells a few village packs, but they are in 'civilian poses' instead of 'angry mob' poses.

I have to be completely honest and say that I don't mind finecast.  I wouldn't go as far as to say that I like it, but I find it easier to prep than GW metals, it seems to stick together better than metals and I tend not to leave my minis in the sun so I don't need to worry about them melting.

The price is my only real complaint - has anyone seen the price of the Bloodknights box? over 60!

I think the phrase 'your mileage may vary' really does apply to finecast.

Yes please! (providing they are human sized)

I love the one with the katana, bags of attitude.

I've been spending a lot of time listening to Sa Dingding, a Chinese singer with a fab voice.  Linkage to wiki and some more linkage to Youtube and a bit more  Just beautiful.

Of course, I'm still listening to Rammstein, Gorillaz, Nightwish, Lacuna Coil and others.

It's already completely filled!  :blub: Now we need to get another one.

Ikea cabinets are addictive, once you have one you just have to get more.....


Surely we can all just get along and have a hug. I am taking pre-orders for my hugs.  :angel:

Can you give a quote for a hug and a timescale for delivery........  :P

I've avoided this thread while there were grumpy bunnies about, but I am now starting to get a bit excited.  I had to wait until after Christmas and the gas bill had been paid before I could finish paying for the big D.  Good thing I can be patient really.

He looks great Andy - top job.

Hack/Slash is great - the other half and I have been reading it for ages - Cassie Hack rocks.

The first pic is cool, which issue is it from?  I haven't read my comics in a few months.

I've read those before, the last one is the best hands down.

Unpleasent set up, but better than uprooting the family and taking them to another country (even if it is a nice one like Northern Ireland).

I hate getting something great at one moment and then having something really awful turn up to take away the joy.

On the one hand I'm promoted...and then I'm told that if I wish to accept it, I have to be in NI by mid august...and I'm told while I'm in the gulf so that I can't sit and chat to my wife about it...

...bleeping armed forces :(.
Middle East or Northern Ireland - I know which one I'd go for, and it wouldn't be the place that can't import Guinness straight across the border. :beer:

All would be great if it was just me, but I have a wife and a couple of children who are coming up to important exams.  Being out here at the moment means that I can't talk face to face with them and I can't sort things out like where they will be living while I'm in the land of Guinness.  Couple that with the BLEEP that is going on out here and to say that I am P***ed off is a mild understatement. 

If I was at home, it wouldn't have been as much of an issue but when you have to uproot a family in order to get on in life, it is nice to be able to tell them face to face rather than in a 5 minute Sat-phone conversation.

Hope you manage to get this sorted Inso.  I was about 10 when my Dad was posted to NI, at least its a lot safer now.  He didn't take the family with him, we stayed on the mainland and he came home 1 weekend out of 4.

Glad I'm not the only one who has had fun and games on the job hunting front.  It's not the job huntin that bothers me, I'm back living with family so overheads are minimal, but it just makes sense that if there is something that is a 'must' for the role than it should be stated in the advert.  It only wastes the company's time and money interviewing people that don't have an important part of the jigsaw.

@Kingluke, I would have replied sooner, but I haven't checked this thread in ages.  Don't come visiting these parts too often these days (though I do check eye candy and anouncements regularly) and I missed your comments completely.  Though I am suprised you were able to get to a gig that had moshpits, most venues ban them if there are loads of minors at the show.

As for mosh pits, I don't have a problem with them at all, my other half will dive right in.  For me though, I prefer to find myself a space with a little bit of room and headbang the night away (usually causing critical neck damage in the process) I know I've had a good night at the Krazyhouse if I can't move my neck for at least three days.  I accidentally got caugh in a mosh pit at the Leeds festival a few years ago, it was when System of a Down came on stage and the pit just opened up arround me.  So I quickly moved a safe distance away a watched the fun instead.     

role profiles!!!!!!!!! You would think if there was something essentail for a job being advertised, it would be in the advert.  It only makes sense doesn't it?!?!

Well, I've been looking for work for a while and you'd be suprised how many interviews you get to where 40mins into it they say something like "have you experience with Sage? No, sorry that is essential for the role" or "and have you got a car, no, sorry you would deffinitely need to be able to drive" If these details were in the adverts I would have wasted my time or theirs.  Arrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Rant rant rant rant rant.

I applied for one job and didn't get it because I couldn't drive.  There was no driving element to the role, wouldn't have to go anywhere once I'd got to the office but it would have taken about 1hr 20mins to get there and they didn't think I'd be able to commit to the role with that much public transport.  Well, believe me, for the money they were offering, I'd have travelled for longer! rant rant rant rant.

@kingluke - I know what you mean about mosh pits, personally I avoid them like the plague when I'm at gigs.  They just aren't my thing, but you see so many people diving in and then complaining because they've got hurt.  The upshot is that venues ban moshpits and that ruins it for everyone.

Quote from: Bodhi
People who don't eat EVERYTHING

I just don't 'get' fussy eaters.  I can't understand it.  Granted, there are a couple of things I really don't like but other than that, I'll eat just about anything.  Perhaps it's because I love to cook.

I used to know a girl who was a vegetarian (because she thought it was cruel) but didn't like vegetables either.  Her entire diet consisted of pasta/rice and cheese, and she wondered why she kept gaining weight!

@ Kepper40K, please do.  Actually, Sheffield is pretty easy for us to get to as well.
