still stumbling right along

OK. The video card crashed again and again. We assumed it was the power supply, so that was upgradded. Turns out the new video card was just a dud. I returned it tonight and got a new one. Will have it installed by thursday.
In the meantime, I managed to get even more paint on a BSB, and he is almost done. I also finished the KINGDOM DEATH model my friend asked me to paint for him in return for fixing the bathroom sink. I also got a few more clanrats done, and finished even more rats that had unfinished bases.
On a side note, I am curious about the new orc and goblin army book. The last few books have been some of the worst written rule books I have had the misfortune of reading in some time. I would have assumed that a company that releases this kind of material would have at least play tested the books and edited their work?? There are some cool looking new models for the army, but I have to wonder...are we in store for another FAQ book? When the FAQ is almost as big as the book, a person has to wonder...but maybe thats why this new book is supposedly way!! bigger. Makes the FAQ to released book pages average much better!
MARCH 5th for all this new stuff.
...would going back to my orcs and goblins be a good idea when there are so many unfinished rats on my desk?

Still lost in the woods

Well, my computer is running, but now it looks like my computer needs a new power source...Crash, Crash, Crash!! Add to this the fact that I have just replaced my hard-drive, so have had to reinstall everything. Guess what I discovered, I have to buy a new program of WORD, and get a photo suite up and running toute-suite indeed!!
I have however been painting. I have managed to knock off another TEN regular clan-rats. The catapult has a lot more paint done on it, but there is still a ways to go. (those crew are frustrating-paint them outside the machine if you have the chance) And lastly I have been painting a friends model in exchange for his kindness in helping fix the plumming of our house.
More soon, and way more when the computer is 100%!!

Claptrap catapult update

Nothing out of this world, but there is paint on the catapult, and I figured an update was in order.

Cheers, Bard
