Turning lead into bold...

Back in the saddle. Real Life has finished punching me in the nuts and I appear to have paid whatever dues were required.

Good news - I've managed to paint a figure in this crazy November! Bad news, is that its not going to be posted tonight because I thought of something I need to do to it quickly and the OCD perfectionist in me decided that I could wait. And by 'I', I mean you.

So I thought I'd draw your attention to this instead:

...and this...

I'd have thought the chap would have thrown the postage in for free. You know - because £419 is a shit-ton of money for 3 grams of lead. Maybe it can cure cancer if you eat it. A bold price in this time of austerity and strife. If only the greeks had a few, their economy would be now stable.

I thought Terror of the Lichemaster was going to be an expensive exercise. Thank heavens I didn't pick Orc's Drift.

A Complete History of Grom, part 4


Seems to be a busier month than most. What with people saving the planet with facial hair, and succumbing to their inner muse, it's a wonder that anyone gets anything done at all.

I'm not participating in either of these fine events, but November still caught up with me.

And when it did, it brought my old friend and yours, Real Life, with it. Real Life chastised me. He seemed concerned that I wasn't phoning or writing anymore. That I didn't want to hang out anymore. So he punched me in the nuts and told me to get my shit in order. He made me do work, and have to travel, and so forth. And he helped the cat get a bladder infection too. 'Cos he's a dick. Real Life, that is, not the cat.

Anyway, despite his best efforts, I've managed to finish painting a figure:

It's the very first Grom. That is, the pre-slotta one. This, then, brings to conclusion my complete history of Grom. Here's another shot, with all the Groms following in chronological order:

Grom the First (1st/2nd Ed)
Grom the Second (3rd Ed)
Grom the Third (4th Ed and current release)
Grom the Fourth (Custom)
Of course, if you're new to this thread, you'll note that Grom the Third comes with Grom the Fourth's chariot. I ended up making an even bigger Grom than Grom the Third,, well, you know. Just because.

Here's the boys together:

If you want to see more of the chariot, there's more in this thread.

Anyway, Real Life isn't finished with me yet and appears to want me to be his bitch for the rest of November. I'd expect this to be my only post this month. If you're lucky, I might scrape a Chaos post together for late November. Lotta bitching to do about Chaos.

Stupid Real Life.
