Hobby/Gaming Blog

I started up a gaming blog a few months ago over at silvernome.com and have decided I’ll also make it my hobby blog, showcasing my WIP Warhammer creations and finished models. Follow along! 

Also, with more upcoming game releases, I’ll try to get better at posting more game reviews/screenshots/etc as well.

Warhammer 40k - 1,500pt matchAugust 9th, 2014
Uploaded a bunch of photos from yesterday’s three player free-for-all matchup between Blood Angels (Max), Necron (Seth) and my Chaos. Necrons won it all after 5 rounds, with points being tallied from Tactic Card points, Slay the Warlord, First Blood and Line Breaker only (holding objectives at the end of the game didn’t matter). 
First time running my new Terminator Sorcerer (psyker level 3) which did really well. Tried out the Telepathic line with him. On the Daemon Prince (psyker level 1) I tried out Daemonology and that was SO MUCH FUN! May have to invest in some Daemon models but for the game I used some of Max’s nids as placement. 
Great game!

Update to Wallpaper Resolutions

Starting with tomorrow’s August calendar wallpaper release, I’ll be adjusting the resolutions a bit: 

This is just a start will do for now. Eventually I want to create ones for Windows Phone, Kindle Fire, etc users, but will probably wait to do this when I do a full inventory check over dsktps.com wallpaper offerings. 

Enjoy!

We just got back from our annual Beach Week vacation with Erin’s family and once again came home with some awesome photos to share. Just posted a few to Flickr just now. Why do vacations never seem like they are long enough?

So last winter my girlfriend took a photo of me playing the new Zelda when she happened to board the same subway car as me. I was totally oblivious. Turns out, her photo is on the front page of the New York Magazine today (she sold the rights via Getty). So in turn, I’m on the homepage of the New York Magazine today. Even more hilarious, how much of an introvert I am and the article is about being more social with strangers.

Warhammer 40k - 1500pt MatchJuly 19th, 2014
Uploaded photos from last nights “quick” after work match to Google+. It was my Chaos vs Max’s army of Tyranids (first time facing them). Luckily, the winner was the one with the most tactical points and I squeaked away with a few more on my last turn and got a victory after 4 rounds (it was getting late). Solid game and would have been interesting to see how it fared out with a few more rounds for sure. First time also running Psyker stuff in 7th, really interesting. Can’t recommend the Tactical Cards & Mysterious Objectives enough though, great additions to the game.
