It’s in my potentia coil.

I totally forgot to blog here yesterday, but thanks to the magic of WordPress I can totally just set the date of this post to yesterday and none of you will ever know, mua-ha-ha-ha!

Well, except that I just told you, but whatevs.

So anyway, let’s lay out the litany of excuses that have kept me from posting on time:

It’s All in the Paint

One of my favorite parts of Warhammer is painting the minis. I’ve seen some really well painted armies as well as some really creative armies. I’ve also seen some badly painted armies and armies that just plain haven’t been painted. I’m back on my psychology kick this week – let’s see if you guys agree with me.

A frequent visitor of Gigabites, Kane, has by far the most creative army I’ve seen so far. He added pieces to the vehicles as well as bent the pieces that already existed to make the vehicles appear possessed by demons. It is WAY cool. He also switched out other pieces throughout his army to create a completely unique and innovative look. To me, this shows a person who regularly thinks outside the box and is very passionate about his hobbies and life in general. He had the courage to make the army his own and put it on the battle table for everyone to see. I think this speaks volumes about his character.

Adeptus Mechanicus are from Mars … I’m not.

I’m beginning a Rogue Trader game shortly, and not having run (or even played) in this game is a bit daunting to me. I have made characters, read through the rulebook a couple of times and had CommissarCarrie educate me in the finer points.

Building ships is a bit of a challenging task as well. I can imagine anything that has to be designed to resist the vacuum of space and the terror of the immaterium would need to be  nothing short of “tough as nails”.  (more…)

I am a lucky lady

Normally I would be posting my fun with Tyranids, but I would rather talk about the “Storm of Silence” tournament I went to over the weekend that just passed.  I specifically wanna speak on how really lucky I am, and how progressive and accepting the gamer community can be.

I am trans, as we all know, and its not exactly a well kept secret, as others can also tell I am trans as well.  Despite all of this, the gamer community in my area really cannot be buggered about it.  This is especially wonderful in the area I am in as all the gamers accept me as just another girl, and another gamer.

I’m cool? Since when?

So, I try not to talk too much about my day job when I’m writing stuff that will permanently stay online, but I’ll make an exception for this little anecdote. I work with kids on a daily basis, and last week one of them came up to me and told me I was cool.

Um, what?

I asked what he meant, and he said, “Oh, you know, you like World of Warcraft and stuff. You’re just really cool like one of those guys on The Big Bang Theory.”
