AdMech FanDex Playtesting

What in the heck is this? That bed spread hasn't been cleaned in like... And when was the last time that carpet was vacuumed? These are all valid questions, if you were my mother. Since you're not my mother (I assume) you're probably focusing on the pages strewn about my bedroom. So what exactly is going on here? It's the next phase ladies and gents. Step 17 or something in the AdMech FanDex adventure I'm on.
This was the last day of editing in which I wasted countless pieces of paper (or 55) in order to visually see the layout format for the codex. Currently I'm holding in my hand the playtesting draft of the FanDex, which is causing me to type very slowly... So I'll finish up by saying that closed-beta playtesting will run through October, possibly longer depending on how I feel about it and then open-beta playtesting will be available for the masses. And as always, click the link in the top right corner for daily updates.

Rules: Necron Tomb Stalker

Jumping in late on the topic that's already been posted everywhere imaginable; I'm here to give my 3 cents on the topic of one of Forge World's new Necron pre-releases for Games Day UK this year: The Necron Tomb Stalker.

Necrons, World War I and A Large Lunch Box

I've got a few topics for today. First, some more Necrons I've finished painting, bringing my total Necron painted point cost to almost 1000 points (a big accomplishment for me.) I'm continuing the black shells of green glowiness, which is still turning out pretty well.
I'm still finding it difficult to get my pictures brighter, but these turned out okay. As always, click on the pics for the larger/clearer view. Check after the jump for more models and pics:

Oh How I Love Irony...
And Mobile Suit Gundam

A friend of mine at work found a link while lurking around the intertoobs. Knowing I'm a fan of some of the Gundam universes, he showed me this epic website:
It's the RX-78 (My second favorite mobile suit in the MS series) made out of empty sprues used to make the RX-78 model. In its signature pose, this thing is the definition of epic. A-may-zing. I had quite the nerdgasm over this.

I'll have an update soon on some painting I've done. Until then, peace-easy!

Damn You, 11th Company!

With 60-70 hour work weeks it's been a rough time keeping up with my podcasts. And I'm still not caught up on the old 11th Company casts (easily my favorite podcast) as I only discovered them a month or so ago. But, today I got in some time at work to listen to the latest 40k Radio and 11th Company and I have to say; I'm pissed.
I rely on The 11th Company for strategy and living vicariously through their discussions to get through these 2 months of overtime at work that I've seldom been able to work on the hobby because of (aside from the Ad Mech Fan Dex, of course). I'm an avid listener and I love the crap out of their show. However, this week was a bit different.
