The road goes ever onwards.

Hello again and welcome to Inso's World on this wonderfully sunny Sunday afternoon.

This week has been one of time off work to aid moving preparateions, including a bit of decorating and lots of paperwork. It also saw the arrival of the contract for our new home so it has been a week of many things... not to mention, it was the 28th anniversary of me signing on the dotted line for Queen and Country.

Add to that, the de-testiculation of my little kitty Sam and you would be right in thinking that not a lot of hobby stuff got done. Speaking of Sam:

This little video is Sam having just returned from the vets. As you can see, he has certainly got bigger since his arrival. He didn't seem too bothered about his little operation but he has been a bit dopey today so I think it is all catching up with him a bit.

In other news, I have been packing a lot of stuff away and have decided that the only stuff I am going to leave out for now, is my sculpting stuff and Squat army (so that I have something to tinker with). That means I have now packed up all of my armies, my paints and am in the process of packing up all of my other hobby stuff. Fortunately, I am packing things where they fit rather than in an organised fashion so when it all gets to the other end, I will have to sort everything out... which will force me to thin down again, I reckon.

So... what have I done (hobbywise) this week? Apart from packing, I have been sculpting the final details on my five remaining Tyranid Hunter Squats. I have finished two, have nearly finished a third and only have the faces to go on the last two. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures to show off so here are the five that have already been finished to remiind you of what the unit looks like:


Click the Pic!

The five that I am working on are just the basic riflemen so when they are done, I'll show the unit off as a whole.

Other things that have occupied my mind are Genestealer Cults. The stuff that GW is puttying out for the cults is really cool... especially the Goliath trucks. Well worth a look.

I have also been thinking about Transport options for my Squats and that just means that all of the plans I have for transport are up in the air because I am really not sure what to do... however, I have been looking at tank hulls and I reckon that either the German Panther hull or the M18 Hellcat hull would make rather nice starting points for an armoured personnel carrier. I have also been thinking about land trains, super heavy transports like the Stormlord and what the Squats might use as heavy support.

Grymn aircraft have also been on my mind and I hope that, one day, I can finally come up with something that I am happy with. I really would like to have a Grymn fighter wing and in order to do that, I need to have aircraft.

So there we have it. Lots about nothing!

See you from the front step!

I love those old eldar wraith thingies.

Poor cat...

And yes about the Ork spines.

And I'll have look at the Moon film as well.

28 years ? Sheesh, you only get 25 for murder....
