You know that feeling that you get when you finish something that took dedication? Yeah, that's how I feel. After a week of broken saw blades, super glue, a fair amount of cursing and a LOT of resin dust (that's supposedly hazardous to your health) I have cleaned and prepared my Forgeworld tank (temporarily named #70, as it's the 70th tank of this model that they made...got the certificate to prove it!) for primering/assembling/painting. Did it with an overall minimum of damage, the wheels took a massive beating as I think I broke no fewer than six of the sixteen wheels that carry the treads. Fortunately super glue heals all wounds and any errant saw marks will be easy enough to hide.
I got the book with it's rules today as well (rather pricey at a cost of $.50 a page when you do the math) and a battle mat from the WarStore today. Unfortunately it was not the one that I ordered. However, I have often looked at the green mats at the toy store and this one seems to be quite nice, so I have decided to keep it in addition to getting the space one.
Other than that, my life has been pretty bleh...especially with the opposite species...er...gender. Only other neat thing to mention I can remember is that the instructor of our Cisco class said we should be able to configure a router to a set configuration (by hand) in six minutes or less to get an A. How long does it take lil ol me? 3 minutes and 21 seconds. I'm just that good. Laterz!
