40k WIP...

 I don't usually like to show Work in Progress pictures of my miniatures, as sometimes the whole WIP part can get lost online, but it feels like with how long my army is taking to come together, plus the upcoming holidays around the corner that may also stall my progress, I figured I would make an exception.  Who knows, maybe I'll like showing off WIP pics, and this could become a new thing each week or every other week, depending on progress.  *ahem* Anyway, I figured I would show off my the progress of the traitor Dark Angels CSM squad for my Red Corsairs army, as well as the slow-going work on Iyanden Spiritseer...

Up first, are the Dark Angels for my Red Corsairs...

This Geek's Week...

- Worked a bit more on my Dark Angels traitor CSM squad.  I'm liking how they are coming along, hope I don't screw em up!

Card/Board games:
- I bought my 4th, and probably final, DBZ booster box.  I've got a pretty collection
now, and the only thing I'm missing from my collection are 3 URs and some starter cards.

- My nephew is getting into the Pokemon tcg, so for Christmas we got him a starter deck.  I also bought the 2 player trainer kit so that My daughter and I could learn to play the game, in order to play with him when we visit. Played a few 1/2 games and a full one with my daughter.

- Played 3 games of the DBZ card game.  Did a trade with my friend, so it's time to build some new decks...

Video Games:
- Did you know that you can play the Pokemon TCG online for free?  Me either!  I got it set up so my daughter could try, and I ended up playing it more than her!

This Geek's Week...

Another light week...

- Worked a bit on the Tactical/CSM squad for my Red Corsairs.  I also worked a little bit on my Spiritseer as well.

Video Games:
- I've been playing a TON of GW2 again lately.  I've had a lot of fun, large, epic battles and realm boss fights.  I'm still mainly playing my Engineer, and although I've played other builds, I always end up back at my turret build.  There is just something cool about dropping a bunch of turrets and wrecking whole areas of mobs, and/or bosses.

Card/Board Games:
- Bought another box of Dragonball Z cards.  No UR this time...

Finished Red Corsairs Traitor-Guard

One GIANT unit!

All the "big names" are represented...
I recently finished up the Cultist element of my Red Corsairs, one big unit of 35!  A lot of them come from the Dark Vengeance box, and a few are a mix of Empire Fanatics and Guard bits.  The overall idea behind them is that they would be a unit of mixed traitor guardsmen from various units, and I have a lot of the "big" units represented: Cadians, Tallarns, Mordians, Valhallans, Catachans, and the Death Korps of Krieg.  All in all, I'm happy with how they turned out, but more so, I'm just happy to finally be done with them!

The unit leader and his fancy coat!

 - One step closer to finishing my Red Corsairs...

This Geek's Week...

This Geek's Week...
- Finished up the final 8 cultists, so now the whole unit of 35 is completed.  I've started on the Dark Angels tactical squad.

- Worked a bit on my Arena Rex gladiators.

Card/Board Games:
- Dismantled and rebuilt 3 decks for the DBZ TCG.  I'm still running a Nemekian Piccolo deck, I'm also running a Red Vegeta, and a Black Goku.  They are all still far from optimized due to my limited collection...

Video Games:
- Played a bit of Guild Wars 2, finishing up the level 40-ish Vigil quests on my Engineer.

*** Also, don't forget to vote on my poll off to the side about what Historical game I should start up next.  Honestly, I expected to have my 40k stuff finished by the end of the year, but I don't think I'm going hit that goal.  I'm a bit bored with Sci-Fi and seriously considering starting up a new game system sooner than I expected! ***

Arena Rex Kickstarter Unboxing/Review...

Recently my Arena Rex kickstarter stuff finally arrived, and I am super excited to talk about and review the contents I received!  So slap in a DVD of Spartacus, or sit back and play some Ade or Ex Deo in the background on iTunes, as I discuss my thoughts on Arena Rex.

This Geek's Week...

More DBZ action...

- Finished 9 more cultists for 40k, I'm down to the final 8...

- Built a couple of Dragonball Z decks.  I then played a few solo test games.

- Played in a smallish DBZ tourney, 1 win & 3 loss.  I'm fine with the results, as I'm still a complete noob, and my deck was really just a non-optimized one filled with just enough cards to make it legal.  Still, none of my games were too terrible, and with the exception of the final one, I'd say I was close to winning each one...

- After the tourney I also picked up my 2nd booster box for the DBZ TCG, so I'll have to redo my decks once more.  While as you can see from a lot of my "This Geek's Week" posts, my interests are constantly ebbing and flowing, however I think I may make the DBZ TCG my "Go to" game (especially card wise) simply because I can easily, and consistently get games in, unlike my other games.  No haggling times online, no hunting down opponents, no begging... just show up Saturdays at 1 pm.

Video Games
- Played a bit of the Halloween event stuff in GW2.  I also played a few rounds of TF2 as well.

- Finally finished "The Gildar Rift".  I've started up "Blood Reaver", another book featuring the Red Corsairs by Aaron Dembski-Bowden.
