So its been a while, for which I offer myself my sincerest apologies as its pretty unlikely anyone else has been on the edge of their seat waiting for my return for the best part of a standard Terran year.
So today the blog is a sounding board for a couple of fluff ideas I have running around in the old head. I’m hoping that if I get some of them down in an ordered manner the best will pop out. You could say I’m going to throw some ideas at the wall and see what sticks (avoiding the fan as we all know what tends to hit that).
I should probably spare a few characters for where I’ve been these past many moons. Well, work has picked up and I’ve actually found myself to be a bit busier than I was back in my student days. Unfortunately, the exams haven’t stopped and what which a house move on top of everything else I’ve been pretty snowed under.
But fear not, I have still managed to get a little bit of hobbying done in that period. The chaos marines have been exiled to the eye of ebay, leaving behind either a small profit or a small loss (failure to keep adequate accounting records is luckily only an offense for a company). At either rate, the paypal account is looking rather healthy currently and some of the funds were reinvested into a the next project – Imperial Fists (hence the slightly risque title.)
I hope to get some pictures up in due course, as I’m pretty pleased with how they’ve turned out. Although I think that when I am finished the yellow paint will be relegated to the darkest corner of the gaming cupboard for the foreseeable (and seeing as the IF have yet to master the art of divination – the unforeseeable future).
So I am mid project – and in these dangerous times the 7 hundred-point itch i generally find my thoughts wandering to the next project.
I should also point out that (outrageously inconsiderately), the good inquisitor, STEVE, returned from his self imposed hiatus from the hobby and has brought back with him an unrivaled eagerness for the narrative game. Being the weak willed creature that I am, this sounds like the best thing since sliced bread.
Unfortunately, its rather more difficult to get a good character driven narrative story going when your collecting a first founding chapter, and particularly one of the two companies which are only even seen (being either one of black or red trims on the shoulder pads). Perhaps even more specifically the one company which, according to a rather biased piece of script writing, was publicly wiped out so that a rather uppity ultramarine initiate could have do battle with a daemon prince in a well known animated movie.
Horses for courses, as they say. And unfortunately this shire horse doesn’t have the legs for the narrative race. Although what I have hoped would be a launch into a feast of fluff has fizzled out into a rather circuitous ramble.
So next time you hear from me will either be on the date of the next leap year when I will proclaim that all my previous ideas were nonsense and I have sold my sole to the privateer press devil. Or perhaps tomorrow, when I will try to spend less words saying the words I was supposed to say today.
So long then.
