    First the Copy Paste

    Welcome to the Hobby Weekender. This is a collaborative thread, please be encouraging, don’t be a dick, keep politics and religion out, be supportive and constructive.

    Post music, and good music. Be respectful. Talk to people. Post pictures. Write hobby background, make terrain, spray stuff, build stuff, play stuff and tell hobby anecdotes. Show us your homebrew. Points will be awarded on a whim and are entirely arbitrary.

    On this day 845 First King of all Brittany, Nominoe defeats Frankish King Charles the Bald at the Battle of Ballon, near Redon

    So, make a pledge and respond to questions. A more detailed answer fuels the discussion, discuss things with people and give us all something to work with and grow as people and exchange ideas, as well as create new ones.

    Now the Questions!

    1. How did you get into the hobby

    2. Are we nearly there yet

    3. whats the air speed velocity of a swallow

    Air brushed on the GSW Flouresents – and then tried an over brush of the white onto the high parts of the purple. (It basically is invisible)

    Pledge is to keep building Undead and not cut my fingers off.

    1. Someone brought a Citadel catalogue into school, I bought Halfling Blood Bowl mens and then starting buying and playing.  Give up for a while, now back at it.

    2. Yes, I only have 14 more sprues of Zombies to build… well, of the current lot I have found, there are more…

    3. No idea, but I have had Starlings, Jack Daws, a Robins, Blue Tits, Chaffinches, Sparrows (not sure if they are tree or house ones), Cold tits, a magpie, and a rook in my garden this morning.

    1. How did you get into the hobby

    Battles with model soldiers by Donald Featherstone in the early 70’s, but before that I always had buckets of Timpo knights etc and airfix figures that fought many valiant battles in the back garden

    2. Are we nearly there yet

    Sadly google maps has failed me again

    3. whats the air speed velocity of a swallow

    0mph as swallows were little children in little sail boats in the Lake District.  I know it’s true I’ve seen a film

    I knew I had forgotten something! Apologies!

    1. How did you get into the hobby

    I was bored. Seriously. I was on guard duty and it was a dull Sunday… so I went to the shop on my break to get something to read. And as with most military base shops you get car magazines, titty magazines and a few other things. And I found the White Dwarf 21 (German 21)

    2. Are we nearly there yet

    Do I look like Papa Smurf?!

    3. whats the air speed velocity of a swallow

    Depends…. If you launch them with a rocket… And no coconuts allowed on flights!

    I have a Dewback calling…. green things want to be painted.

    It did happen when I was talking to you @torros!  I was getting very excited about Old Glory Celts!    Even better I have a salt jar, and I put my hand that had the cut in it when getting salt for the pasta water last night… it smarted slightly.

    Warren, just a small thin cut had with a No.11 blade.  it just bleed a lot.  Hopefully that means my blood isn’t full of fat clogging my heart 🙂
