Dig deep, lads!

Another Sunday and another update to Inso's World.

It has been a weird weekend and as a result, I haven't got as much done as I would have liked. On Saturday, I went into town as usual but ended up going to the cinema with my family as an extra. What did we go and see? Well my son has just read 'Percy Jackson and the lightning thief' and he was keen to see the film so that is what we went to see. What did we think? I thought that it was very much a children's film with little interest for a parent. My son (14) thought it was 'okay' but had very little to do with the 'awesome' book he had just read. My daughter (12) thought it was a good film and my wife thought it was 'enjoyable' and she wasn't bored by it. From the beginning, you can tell that it was directed by one of the Harry Potter film directors because the music and cinematography was almost identical to that franchise...

...would I go to see it again? Not unless I really needed a sleep.

After the film I became exceptionally drowsy, ended up dozing off on the couch a few times before dinner and then went to bed by 20:30hrs in the evening. I also got up late this morning and ended up going food shopping at lunchtime rather than the usual morning everything has taken a big slip to the right.

Excuses aside...what the heck have I been up to?

Well, I'm sorry to say that the Tyranids have taken a back seat at the moment and since I have just received a batch of heads from Pig Iron, I have been putting together a few more Grymn tunnel fighters. The plan is to have a bunch of fairly standard troops with a few characters in the mix for a bit of variety. If you look in the pic below, you'll see a bunch of standard troops, a character Grymn WIP and also a robot character WIP:

Robots will be a big part of my tunnel fighting force so watch this space for new and entertaining models to fill the roles. I also plan to use some native creatures to act as sentries. I haven't got any yet (because they haven't been released) but they are Lesser Mawe and will be available from Hasslefree Miniatures at some point soon:

The above pic is linked from Hasslefree Miniatures so I hope they don't mind!

I'm thinking that a bunch of these, with leads on them, being held by a Grymn/robot handler, would look very cool.

On a completely different subject, I have been reading the Void1.1 rulebook that I recently purchased and have ordered a bunch of ten sided dice to go with them. Does that mean I plan to play a few games? Who knows? (well, actually it means I will be playing a few games...but don't tell anyone, they'll think I've lost the plot!).

I have also been adding a few bits to my latest Grymn venture:

Take a look and take note of the statement at the end about sending me information for the blog!

Well...that's it for now. I'm on night shift this coming week so I have no idea what other plans I have.

See you through the hail of bullets!

Thank you. I'm hoping for a 2000AD 'Mongrol' look to him when I'm finished...we'll both have to wait and see if I can manage it :).
