New models tomorrow!Hi guys! I just wanted to give you all a quick rundown as to what was coming up. Since my lego order isn't here yet, I'm going to be posting a lego model I've been meaning to post for quite a while now. I also have a few small mini figures to throw in as well. This should tide you all over until next weekend. I just hope that package gets here soon. I have a back log of tons of new minifigure designs but I can't show them yet until this basted order gets here. I wonder how long it would take to get here if they strapped my order to a rocket?New models tomorrow!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Not dead, but I got great news!Hi guys. Sorry for the lack of updates, but my "wonderful" teachers at school decided to go medieval on my ass this week with 4 tests and 3 papers to write up. But that's all in the past now so it's time to get back to work. Since I didn't post anything last weekend and probably not anything this weekend; because of schoolwork, I'm gonna grind through this weekend getting a little something prepared for you all this up coming thanksgiving week. What I have in mind is that my school break starts this upcoming Wednesday and runs til Sunday, so I figured I'd add something new to the gallery each day. That's five days of new lego material! This doesn't mean there is going to be little content either, oh no. Also I got my new camera last week and I am loving every minute using it (SO SHINY)! Thats all for now, have a great weekend!Not dead, but I got great news!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If I had a time machine...Ya know if I had a time machine I'd be using it right now to find out when that blasted lego order of mine would get here because it still isn't here yet. As of right now I'm on fall break at my school, which means I'm off for the next four days. Now I called lego today and gave them my tracking number, and from what I can tell my order was shipped from Connecticut on the 26th of Sept. and is currently in New Jersey. Right now I'm a little tempted to hop in my corvette and floor it all the way to New Jersey and snatch it up at the post office and run away like some evil villain. MWUAHAHAHAHA *ahem* As of now I'm not too sure what I'll be posting this weekend. I have a few ideas but haven't settled on anything as of yet. I just want my order. Guess I'll go back to playing the backlog of games I haven't finished yet.If I had a time machine...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So much this weekend! ^^Well everyone it's that time again. Time for some awesome new models and minifigures. This week I've got a revamped version of my Lightning Dragon. I've also got three new minifigures lined up for you as well. All of which bare the style of the samurai. The first minifigure is the lowest class of them all, the Ghost. The next up is the Raiden model. Lastly is Raijingeki of the Bushido class. Each one sports different traits and attributes. On a side note, you'll start seeing more minifigures like Raijingeki in the near future. I plan on using this new type of model frame as much as possible. It's given me so many more new possibilities than its predecessor. Now for next week I have five new minifigures already done. All that needs to be done is for them to be uploaded. For now check out this weeks newest models below, and as always leave a comment and drop a fav if you like. Until next weekend everyone, I bid you adieu. ^^So much this weekend! ^^2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Lightning dragon Re-done
Too much to do, and so little time!Hi guys, just wanted to let you know I'm not dead. I've been really with school lately because I'm transffering to the main branch of my college for the fall and everything is a bit hectic at the moment. I really don't know when I'll be uploading anything big again. It might not be til the end of April when I'm done with finals. That doesn't mean I'm not working on anything though. Right now I'm actually trying to figure out how I can further improve the mars mission hypersonic dropship I have. I wanna give it a full blown makeover, and give it an up to date look. I hope this works out for me.Too much to do, and so little time!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Minifigures on Canvas
Yeah, you're going to have to leave Deviant to look at it properly. I promise it won't bite.
It's finally here! ^^Well everybody it's finally done. The epic dragon is 100% complete! I gotta say that this re-build was really a lot of fun! There were a few headaches along the way but what was the hardest thing was that it took a only three days to build but out of the whole 72 hours I only slept about 6 hours because I really wanted to get this done because my midterms are coming up and I didn't want to disappoint any of you who were looking forward to this. ^^ Before I move on, for those of you might ask that you want a step by step build on my dragon that isn't gonna happen. I jumped around so much the only real part I could help you with is the legs and the wings. A step by step is kinda outta the question, sorry. Moving on, the dragon wasn't the only thing on my to-do list for today. If you read my journal yesterday you'll remember that I said I'll be adding some new minifigures as well. Well I don't go back on my word. Ladies and gentlemen I give you two new soldier types. The Wolf aIt's finally here! ^^2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Russian politics: the art of flimsy excuses.On the whole, believe there’s a difference between the people that run a country and the rest of the people who live within its borders. Politicians, regardless of where in the world they hail from, are generally bullies. You have to be a special kind of egomanic, self-serving prick to claw your way into a position where you have the power to put other people in harm’s way to benefit your own agenda. The only difference geography seems to bring is a level of subtlety. British politicians are slimy and insidious, American politicians rely on drama and theatre, and as we’ve seen over the last couple of days: Russian politicians are obsessed with proving they carry the biggest stick, at the expense of everything else.Russian politics: the art of flimsy excuses.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Of course, in order to prove you have a big stick, you have to actually use it. That’s quite difficult in this day and age. A couple of hundred years ago, a master of a people could just point to a spot on the map, say “Want!” and his army
RIP - H.R. GigerKooky Swiss artist and master of f**ked-up imagery, H.R. Giger, has died: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-27390345RIP - H.R. Giger2 months ago in Personal More Like This
His work was brought to prominence, obviously, by the design of the titular Alien in Ridley Scott’s film, but he was also more or less the godfather of “biomechanical” science fiction/horror illustration.
I can’t say I was ever a real fan of his work. Most of it made my flesh crawl. It was art, but it was utterly repulsive.
Why mention his passing, then? Well, love or hate his style, its effect on the science fiction/horror genres is undeniable, and they wouldn’t be the same without him.
37 DaysI thought the BBC had lost its touch when it comes to drama, what with the cancellation (temporary, it now seems) of Ripper Street and the generally abysmal writing of a plethora of recent prime-time series, but they’re back on form with the 3 part 37 Days.37 Days4 months ago in Personal More Like This
It follows a number of politicians, particularly those of the British and German governments, in the days between the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and the outbreak of hostilities in 1914.
The concept may sound rather dry, but watching the intricate lattice of alliances, treaties and family ties that existed across Europe 100 years ago crumble into war made for some rather tense drama.
If you’re a fan of either history or political thrillers (or fantastic moustaches), it’s highly worth a watch.
It is a little chilling to see how quickly things can fall apart.
BTW: The crisis in Ukraine started 16 days ago with the removal of President Yanukovych……just saying
How to interview a politician.A tiny snippet from Jeremy Paxman's interview with Silvio Berlusconi.How to interview a politician.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.
I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:

Diluting QualityBioshock Infinite was one of the few games I’ve completed and been quite happy to immediately start again from the beginning. So good was the story and immersive the universe it crafted that it was a joy to replay again and again.Diluting Quality2 months ago in Personal More Like This
It had that quality so rarely found in interactive entertainment: a satisfying end.
With most games striving to be epics, we’re usually left with the developers leaving the door wide open for a sequel that may never materialise, and no ending at all, or just a crap boss battle followed by the credits to act as a marker for when and where the budget ran out.
Bioshock Infinite had genuine closure and had given you all the information you needed over the course of the game to answer any lingering questions yourself.
It was a perfect, stand-alone product.
And then Burial At Sea comes along.
I was delighted at the thought of returning to Rapture and spending more time with Booker and Elizabeth, but now, having play
RPGs need to find a new angle.I’ve been skimming through previews of Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt.RPGs need to find a new angle.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am so bored with the standard aesthetic of RPGs.
Swords, sorcery, European environments.
I’m sure that my weariness of these visuals stems from the fact I live in England, and that I grew up playing amid the ruins that scatter the borderlands of the North East. Ancient mounds, the remnants of Hadrian’s wall, fallen abbeys and frontier fortifications; because I see all that in REAL LIFE, I have no desire to wander digital versions.
Fable 2 and 3 are exceptions. Those are clearly fantasy versions of England, but they nod to different periods in history. 16th and 17th century rather than 11th and 12th. Flintlocks over chainmail. It adds something new.
I never bothered to finish Skyrim, but I’ve played Fallout 3 and New Vegas a dozen times, because the latter games are, to British eyes, a more exotic world. They are just as strange and foreign to me as a land l

It started in Northampton earlier in the year and has since spread to a number of other towns and cities around Fair Blighty.
The horrific Northampton Clown was the first. “Patient Zero”, if you will. He would simply….appear. Sometimes he would knock on doors and randomly offer to paint the window frames for the bemused resident (though he never seemed to carry paint or a brush). On another occasion, he emerged from a lake and handed out balloons.
Since this hellish creature first showed up, there have been a deluge of sightings, from right across the country, causing such a degree of distress that the authorities are issuing advice.
Squirrels....of DEATH.As a rule, I run under the assumption that if word of an outbreak or pandemic suddenly hits the news, it's already too late. With people moving across the world at the rate they now do, an incident can be reported on one side of the planet and by the time the networks broadcast it, the bug is probably crawling in through your living room window.Squirrels....of DEATH.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, when I hear that a squirrel just outside Los Angeles has been found dead and racked with The Plague, I get a little freaked out.
That's THE Plague.
You know: the one that killed 200 million people in Europe BEFORE the advent of mass transportation.
Now, there are plague animals running wild all over the place, and the Black Death can actually be treated at the moment, but the bacterium has been at large for centuries, giving it plenty of time to turn real nasty. Our antibiotics get less effective by the day, with the bugs they're used on becoming more and more resistant to them through misu
Yay for American Independence. No, really!An odd statement for a quasi-neo-imperialist to say, I know, but if the Colonials hadn't (justifiably) got shirty over lack of representation in Parliament, the British Empire would never have become the behemoth that it did.Yay for American Independence. No, really!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to the rebellion/revolution, the British Government changed the way it conducted itself so as to ensure such an incident would never happen again.
Had they not, a revolution similar to that seen in France, 1789, would have very likely occurred on home turf.
The French leadership maintained their "all powerful" fašade, and in assisting the American colonies, spent a fortune. This further angered their already irate people, who, in seeing that it could be done, decided to have a little revolution of their own.
So, with the economy booming thanks to renewed transatlantic trade between Fair Blighty and the newly formed United States and with Britain's arch enemy France focused on tearing itself apart, there was nothing to stop the Empire's expansion.

The legends were true?!Geek culture has many myths and legends, ranging from fabled disks and cassettes containing unreleased sequels of beloved games to Easter Eggs found only within the code of early versions of certain titles.The legends were true?!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
The most well known of these legends, the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, The Excalibur of Geek mythology, is that of the lost E.T. Cartridges – arguably the worst video game in history - buried somewhere in the New Mexico desert.
Now, they’ve been hiding unwanted stuff out in the deserts of America as far back as 1923. When filming finished on Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments, they worked out it’d be cheaper to just bury the set than dismantle it. This lent the E.T. Cart legend a little credibility, but even I was skeptical of anything ever being found….
