El autobus es rojo!

Hola y chicas y chicos!
I had my annual staff appraisal these days. Nothing bad about it but I was still a little drunk from the regular meeting with my pals we have each week. It's like a thirsty thursday but on monday.
During this staff appraisal I was asked what my opinion is about further training and stuff. I said I'm not really excited about going back to school again but I toy with the idea of learning spanish. I still have no idea why I came up with this idea.
So now I'm doing a spanish class paid by my company.
It didn't start yet but I already learned some stuff which is very useful (more or less)

Lárgate! (Get along!)
Tengo diarrea (I have diarrhea)
and my favourite
El autobus es rojo (The bus is red)

Oh did I mention that I don't need spanish for my work?

I know this has nothing to do with modeling but I just wanted to tell you this odd little story.
Maybe it gives you a similar smile like the one I still get when thinking about this.

Todbringer finished

So I finished them faster as I thought. There must be something wrong with me...

So I made these guys as an kill team for a game that I'm going to play this evening. Unfortunately they are far away from completion but they are in a playable stadium....more or less. Just hadn't enough time to get them done completely.

Let's get personal

Some time ago Brian over at A Gentleman's Ones talked about pseudonyms and how silly they are if you introduce yourself in real life with them. I really thought about that for a while and I came to the result that he is absolutely right.
I choose "Freakazoid" a long time ago when I started my career as an online personality within several chat rooms and stuff (yes I was very young) and the pseudonym just remained over the years. In my case it's a little different to Brian as I'll probably never meet any of you in real life because most of you life too far away.
I'm just way too old now for being Freakazoid. It was a fun series when I was a kid but those days are gone and I don't need to hide behind such an pseudonym anymore. I'm also no blue skinned guy wearing a pyjamas.

So my name is Oli and I am lazy and distracted. Pleased to meet you.

On the road again

Wow this is Post No. 75. For some of you out there this is a tenth of your followers but for me this is a massive waypoint. Let's see if I get the 100...
Managed to get the Road tiles glued together. Down time of Blogger gave me some more time for the hobby and to enjoy the weather outside.

After I finally received the Sentinel parts I bought on ebay I started building my Dreadknight conversion. Had this in mind since I've seen the model. Never liked the Terminator hanging in front of this warmachine. Morgrim over at 23lines already did the same with his Dreadknight and prove it looks ace.

Manhole covers and Blog styling

I made these just do detail my road tiles a little. They are made of spare plastcard pieces that are leftovers from a movement tray I built some time ago. Fortunately I didn't throw them away so now they make quite good manhole covers.
