Bob's toothy mouth.

Not that most of you care, but I spent a decade of my life taking people fishing- for a living, usually families. Which means, I spent a good deal of that time dealing with kids a great,great, GRRrrrrreeeat way to build up your patience. It has been said I have "The patience of Job".... which I guess means I have alot of it.  But apparently not so much when it comes to sculpting a leech-like mouth on goofy looking Defiler/Stalk tank thingy.

After half a dozen attempts (and somehow managing not to throw the model across the room- though there was plenty of grumbling and screaming.... did Job convert models too?) ... I settled on the numerous rows of teeth thing. And here's the inside rows.....

The teeth need a little clean up with an Exacto knife. This is what will be inside. I still have to do the lip over the outside and a mouth in general, so this is the beginning of the inside.  So... this is step 1.

And NOW...A slight Rant.... I know, I know.... I try not to, but once in a while us old gummers gotta yammer on a bit.I got my hot little hands on the new Rulebook.  As an "old hand", I would have loved to have saved $30 on the book of pretty pictures I didn't need. Otherwise, I'm getting a good giggle reading about the sky falling all over the internet. Its like reading the comments on news articles.... mindboggling hysteria and stupidity. Good GOD people, talk to your opponent before hand and just refuse to play against assholes. "OMG! The can take this detachment and that detachment and that detachment" still all has to be within the 1500 (or 1750or whatever) for the game. Settle down, talk to your opponents (Ohhhh no...40k is a social game again?!?) And I'm sure any event is going to have list restrictions,etc laid out ahead of time... or at least they should. Bringing the "O" back into TO like it should be. (And yes, I organized events in the past...for 40k and numerous IPMS model shows, it should involve work to some degree. Lazy TO's  (and asshole players) are one of the reasons I quit playing events)  Don't be Hitler (we all know what happened to him.... and if you don't,shame on you- look it up) ....its a game, have fun.

Next time, Bob's stiff upper lip. The rebirth of yet another old idea and maybe even something ORKY!

Cheers Ya'll!

  1. Lol nice video. Bob's mouth is looking terrifying!

    I think people just love to hate on GW. I don't think GW could ever produce anything that would result in half the internet exploding. They could have given the rulebook away for free, and people would still be complaining. That's how I see it these days.
