Not a Deathwatch (or Space Marine) painter/owner, but this is something I think should be a regular thing. We should have lots and lots of entries! This would be an excellent project for anyone getting the DeathWatch game.
I’ve had several projects on and off the back burner over the last year or so. Moving, finding jobs, buying a home and getting married all happened in the last year so unfortunately hobbies and grand schemes had to stand in line. They will hopefully see the light of day (in the form of this blog at the very least) at some point in the future.
In December, GorkyMorkyGurl and I made the move south to the Gulf Coast. We love our new fortification and it’s proximity to the water, but there is one small change from our rental in Georgia; we no longer have a gigantic bonus room. When we moved in we found that the rental house had once had a garage that had been enclosed and it made a near perfect studio space. Spoiled, we ladies were, and though I wouldn’t trade this house for anything, we do miss being able to spread out with our hobbies.
The RD-32 (commonly referred to as “The Ox”) is the designation for the automated ore ships currently used by Sanctuary Industries to ferry goods from place to place. They are fitted to accept the standard SI Container and it’s smaller variants. While they do generally get where they are going, rarely one of these guys do get lost, stolen or otherwise mysteriously vanish. Since a search and rescue for a simple minded robot is far more costly than replacing them, they aren’t generally equipped with open locators and/or radio equipment. This also makes it harder for pirates to find them. Even so, they are still equipped with minor defenses.
The engineering division is currently working to enhance the A.I. incorporated into the RD-3x line. The projected RD-33 is expected to have better navigation ability and more finely tuned thruster control. They are expecting to have it be able to auto-dock with this next generation. There’s also been rumors that they will be designed a bit more aestetically pleasing, but this would incur even more capital in a ship that’s designed purely for function and not to be seen.
This article from last week is starting to gain ground in it’s spread around the internet. I watched the video there with disbelief. “Why on earth would someone do this?” I asked myself. I’ve been in gaming for a long time, and seen my fair share of tantrums, rage-quits and lost tempers (might have had some of these myself) but this takes the cake.
That may have been the whole point of this video. Getting attention. However, we’re going to assume that’s not the case. For science. (more…)
