How goes it everyone? Hope all is going well. Things are looking up over here. Things have been more on the up and up then they have been in a long time. So it’s creating overall positiveness.
Been painitng my Immolator on and off. It’s going quite well I suppose. White paint is not exactly easy to play with but otherwise things are too my satisfaction. Very basic stuff. On one section that is hidden I tried some black gesso primer diluted with a bit of water. I wanted to see the feasibility of using other non citadel products. It worked out really well and quite pleased with the texture. Basically one container of this gesso acrylic paint is equivalent to about 11 – 12 bottles of citadel paint. The Immolator itself is coming along. A few guns to paint and touch ups and it should be all done. Ready for the war…so then we need to paint the troops lol
Started playing Warhammer online. This came about by the painitng enthusiasm as well as a mix of both a book I am reading and some new information gleamed from the patch updates for the game. They have fixed a lot of things lately and pretty happy with it from my early goings. Now you may have heard that a lots of subs dropped off but thats probably normal considering that back then the game needed more oomph. From what I am reading in interviews, see in patches is that it’s here and coming. Quests are being added, dungeons being added, two already new classes with two new ones on the way. All which were missing from release. In june there is a new area, that of the Tomb Kings which should be pretty awesome. I think it’s just very hard financially and perception wise to stay strong as an MMO against the WoW juggernaut. People don’t like to wait and see if it grows and I have a sense that along with missing elements is due to the recent drop off of subs.I also think the lack of official community site really burned them. But everyone learns I suppose as thats another thing on the way along with also the major cities that were cut. Essentially the game that should have come out which is kind of sad to say.
Either way I made a Knight of the Burning Flame. Picked a med pop server and begun the journey. Just some quickies I noticed was that performance has increased, more quests and a live event. It unfortunately ended just when I resubbed but there is another one starting which if you do whatever you can have early access to the new classes. One being the Orc Choppa! Should be interesting. I was able to do two public scenarios which were pretty cool.
Aside from that been playing Jericho. Cool game though kind of annoying. Basically you control a squad of soldiers who have powers of some sort. Your in an ancient city to fight this evil about to be released. The game itself is entertaining as I like the story. The game is setup in small levels which is good as you feel like you get more done and bad in the each one has a cut scene. This is good and bad depending on what I mentioned. One thing that is aggravating is there is not much controlling to do with your squad. So they die really easy and fast making you restart the level. This is my biggest aggravation as difficulty ranges from sleep walking to wtf just sat on me.
And yeah that pretty much it over here. Oh, go see Friday the 13th. Me and Neil went to go see it last friday obviously and it was fantastic. An awesome reboot with lots of easter eggs. It was actually kinda scary and not much cheese.
