I’m still here, honest! WTF Wednesday!

15 05 2013

I know, I know, it’s been a while, but boy, has it been crazy times. I won’t bore you with details, but school, getting married, recording a full-length album, and a short sale are just a few of the things that I have been doing which has taken me away from my sadly neglected blog. I hope to change that now though. I’ll be going through the blog here in the next week or two and getting rid of some of the old content and start breathing some new life into this place. I’ve still been gaming with my good buddy Colin ‘Thunderhammer’ Holmes, or Dethtron to some out there. We’ve actually been playing lots of Flames of War, and I got him interested in making an army for Hail Caesar; he’ll be fielding Saxons while i’ll be fielding Vikings. I aim to get an article together for this soon.

So anyway, to continue with a not-so-regular feature of WCF, this weeks WTF Wednesday picture was spotted on teh intehwebs by yours truly. It probably ranks in the top 2 for me. The fact that this had to be posted is a scary prospect, but, we’ve all been to that con, or store where there is a definite ‘cologne’ that you couldn’t tell whether it was bad meat or good cheese in there… gross.

For shame. Get some Old Spice maybe?

WTF Wednesday – either it is, or it isn’t… make your mind up!

29 06 2011

The anniversary of the day of my appearing on this planet is rapidly approaching, and I was asked to put together a list of a few things I would/need for my gaming stuff. I usually take advantage of the offer and order some Forge World stuff.

So, as I was perusing the website and happened upon the Dreadnought pages. Eyeballing the Space Wolf venerable dready I just happened to look at the description. See for yourself (click on the image for full size).

Now, ‘complete resin kit’ would suggest to me that it includes everything you would need to make a complete dreadnought model. If I bought a complete resin kit of a Focke Wolfe, I would kind of expect the wings to be included in the kit. Apparently not. I understand that people will want different configurations for loadouts, so I suggest one of two options: Either re-word your description so you’re not confusing people (yes I am aware of the rest of the sentence in the description) or, up the price to include the loadouts of the customers choice. Seriously Forge World, WTF?

If you have anything that would be a good entry for WTF Wednesday, send me an email at whencannonsfade@gmail.com and i’ll include it, with full credits of course 🙂

WTF Wednesday: One of these things is not like the other…

Thanks to Frank for putting me onto this one. I was literally WTF-ing all over the shop when I saw it. Now, before I get cries of being a meanie, and that someone may have scratchbuilt one of these and put a lot of time and effort into it(i’ll let you guess), its the finish thats got me scratching my chin. WTF?

If you’ve gone as far to scratchbuild a rhino and make sure you got the shape somewhat near, why would you finish it like this??

Baffled.
