    ### Start of shameless copy & paste ###

    Read all of this before you start as it will save any trouble later.

    First thing you must do is make your “pledge”. It can be anything gaming related, big or small, and you don’t even have to finish it. No, in here, happiness is the road. Have fun doing whatever it is, but it is not a race. Accompany your work with pictures or we might think you are do something sinister and just using us for cover.

    You are also presented with a few questions. It is to get the conversation started. Try and keep your answers ‘conversational’, no text speak, and certainly no “basically”. This is how we all get to know each other better. While you are here feel free to tell us a story, show a picture, joke, tales of love or woe, or just add your own little bit. This is the whole point…in here it is just us.

    If you have never taken part before we may bark and bite, but we also like a cuddle! It is all done in the best possible taste and it is character building. feel free to give as good as you get.

    A few other things to note: NO RELIGION & NO POLITICS! Glasgow pub rules are in effect. If you need to make a better point then it is fine, but don’t take the piss. And always keep it civil.

    Play plenty of music to go with your work. Loud and through proper speakers. Write us a playlist of things we might not have heard before.

    Now, after all of that there is only one ‘real’ rule in here and it cannot be broken: NO DICKS! (Exceptions may be made for little fighting men with little plastic/resin/metal wieners)

    And don’t forget the highlights of the weekend: The Weekender on Friday and XLBS on Sunday. And the little show that is the unofficial Hobby Hangout over at twitch.tv

    ### End of shameless copy & paste ###

    • Now that the dust on the “Wayland Yutani buys a Beast Of War” has settled a bit and @warzan did bring the new head honcho to the show: how are  you feeling about this?
    • Have you seen the new episode of The Mandalorian yet? (NO SPOILERS!)
    • If you could choose any movie that you would like to have succeed but that failed terribly or was plain horrible and you could remake it in your way: what would that be?

    HUZZA!

    • Just finished the CoG Radio today… glad to hear a fellow Mech Pilot is at the helm… still remain sceptical a bit…
    • No
    • I think on of them would be Eragon. The books have so much more lore to offer than just “kill the bad wizzord”.

    I need a break…. weekend here I come…

    Mostly ambivalent, still in ‘wait & see’ mode.

     

    Plan for this afternoon, finish work, put work laptop and paperwork away, fire up Disney+.

     

    Independence Day, the trailer made it look quite dark and heavy to me, but then the film was utter wank. Put me off going back to the cinema for a few years.

    Hi de Hi!

    1) Now that the dust on the “Wayland Yutani buys a Beast Of War” has settled a bit and @warzan did bring the new head honcho to the show: how are  you feeling about this?

    If it is Wayland Yutani then we best prep for the incoming aliens …
    I think it is possibly the best scenario next to winning the lottery for OTT.
    We’ll have to wait and see what actually changes for us though. I think the majority will be in the background for more than a few months.

    2) Have you seen the new episode of The Mandalorian yet? (NO SPOILERS!)

    3) If you could choose any movie that you would like to have succeed but that failed terribly or was plain horrible and you could remake it in your way: what would that be?

    Any of the Star Wars trilogies since the original … so let’s start with the pre-quels.

    They would be set millenia before the original trilogy (thereby lending weight to the phrase ‘a weapon of a more civilized age’ … ) and show the fall of the civilization with only a tiny link to the cast of the original trilogy.
    It would not be a trilogy of movies, but a proper 5 year long tv show like Babylon 5 was.

    The sequel trilogy is also terrible. This also should be more like a long running tv-show, because there’s too much to explore to fit in one or more 2 hour movies.

    Star Trek … the JJ Trek trilogy needs to be stopped from ever happening. Star Trek is a tv series for a good reason as you can’t tell epic stories if you have to explain the setting and the characters every single time.

    The simple sad fact is that they never attempted to show live outside of Federation starships (DS9 being the exception … and I bet that was because of Babylon 5 ). Give live to 2 dimensional bad guys like Ferengi and Klingons (it can’t always be murder and violence all the time … ).

    Same applies to Harry Potter, Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit … all of them would have been better as tv-series instead of movies.

    So I don’t know how much time I will have, but I plan to prime Jaime Lannister today so he’s around to add paint to if I get time. Painting characters is just easier at the moment… That being said…I did have a whoopsies while trying to bend his shield back into place…melting occurred…I am not pleased.

    20201030_160856

    I tidied it up as best I could…but I am going to have to call ‘battle damage’ on the top left part. It is supposed to be a metal shield, so I can always argue that it go hit a fair bit in that corner… That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

    Questions!

    Now that the dust on the “Wayland Yutani buys a Beast Of War” has settled a bit and @warzan did bring the new head honcho to the show: how are  you feeling about this?

    Things change. Nothing is the same way forever. I think it’s a shame that the guys couldn’t keep things going without help (which is how I understand this merger came about), but it is what it is.

    Have you seen the new episode of The Mandalorian yet? (NO SPOILERS!)

    I haven’t seen any of it. I refuse to pay money for Disney+, and I guess I just haven’t found the time or energy to go and look for it elsewhere.

    If you could choose any movie that you would like to have succeed but that failed terribly or was plain horrible and you could remake it in your way: what would that be?

    Not a movie, but Game of Thrones. With all the proper characters in it. I enjoyed most of the seasons, but as time when on there was just too many stupid changes that just pissed me off. Justice for the Martells! 😛

    I just went with the Clan Invasion box and the Core Box as a very cheap add on…. but my friend got himself the Bloodnamed level… and add ons…. it nearly maxed my credit card XD

    That still looks like a lot of Battletech sir…

    1.Still in wait & see mode,like others have mentioned.

    2.No,i’m going to go into black out mode and ignore it for a few weeks to let the episodes build up.

    3. @lloyd mentioned having Maul live to feature in the prequel trilogy,that would have been a very good idea and his arc could still have played out like it did in the CW and Rebels.

    No I did all the buying and they gave me the money. @limburger Usually I am the one doing the blackmailing… having access to email accounts and such…  😉

    That’s true. They could have defeated him in Episode I without …. mauling him. XD @kantor72

    This week’s pledge is to go back to either the nymphs or kingdom death monnster models that I am trying to finish before the end of the year. I finished milestone 2 for my Dweghom yesterday (pics to follow later today) so I think I can take a break from them until milestone 3 starts.

     

    1. Now that the dust on the “Wayland Yutani buys a Beast Of War” has settled a bit and @warzan did bring the new head honcho to the show: how are  you feeling about this? – Nothing stays the same for ever so we’ll just have to wait and see.
    2. Have you seen the new episode of The Mandalorian yet? (NO SPOILERS!) – Still haven’t seen season one, but I’m planning on getting in to it soon. I have limited time for TV and in the past year there have been a lot of shows I have wanted to watch.
    3. If you could choose any movie that you would like to have succeed but that failed terribly or was plain horrible and you could remake it in your way: what would that be? – I tend to be far more forgiving of movies than most people. When I see a movie others say is terrible I tend to just go with “it wasn’t great”.

    I guess it’s been a busy week for everyone. First time in several days I’ve had a moment to pop in and see what’s been happening…
