Incoherent Wednesday ramblings

Hey. There’s not too much happening this week, apart from Twitter melting down about a Fortnite player advocating for parents to take responsibility for the behaviour of their children (yes, this is a controversial statement in the bizarro-world that is Twitter-dot-com), and a bunch of shitposters are brutally murdering a multi-billion dollar hedge fund in real-time as we speak. Here’s some smaller things I feel that are worth mentioning:

“<insert name here> liked your article!”

So I’ve noticed that this blog has been getting a few views and followers this week. As it turns out, actually interacting with other blogs in your sphere can actually drive activity– who would have thought? As of this writing, my follower count is sitting at nine, which is about nine more followers than I ever intended to have.

Seriously though, if you’ve clicked that follow button, thank you. If you’ve clicked that like button, thank you. If you’ve left a comment, thank you. It’s pretty neat to see that my writing is connecting positively with others in some way, even if said way is relatively small. You’re welcome to stick around as long as you like. It certainly beats bathing in the caustic acid pits of a certain massive social media platform…

Re. Battle Sisters

I don’t think it’s out of the question that most of my newfound audience is likely to be fellow Warhammer 40k fans. Most of my interactions in the last week have been Warhammer-related blogs, so it’d make sense. A disproportionate amount of article views have gone to last week’s article about me assembling a Battle Sisters model kit, so I think an update is in order.

Before that, a quick warning: even though I like 40k and I absolutely adore Sisters of Battle, this is technically a variety blog. Updates like these might be few and far between.

I’ve placed orders for some painting supplies and I’m glad to say that some of them are delivered! Namely, a few cheap brushes, a ceramic palette, and some brush soap:

I’ve got some Citadel paints and a handle on the way as well, which should arrive within the next month. Of course, I forgot to buy varnish and basing materials too, so things are probably going to take much longer than you might expect. I blame GW. Fortunately, this should all be less painful on my second project. I’ve got my eyes on buying some Seraphim and maybe some Penitent Engines…

From the GW store. Seriously, those jump packs have no business being that awesome.

I’ve also been hard at work writing some good ol’ fluff for my custom Order. I’m planning to publish it all as its own page on this blog, so if you’re interested in that kind of thing, I encourage you to stick around. Here’s a small preview of what I’m doing:

Excuse my shoddy vector work.

In other news…

Dunno. I started playing Final Fantasy XIV again, after I arguably hit it way too hard just a few months ago. It’s a pretty good MMORPG, though if you’re looking to interact with a “living, breathing” game world you might want to look at World of Warcraft or Star Wars: The Old Republic. Or you can play EVE if you’re a psychopath. I’ve considered doing game reviews on this blog, but I don’t really have any concrete ideas for articles at the moment. Oh well.

So… yeah. That’s the update. As always: thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next time.

  1. I started 40K at the very beginning in 1988 so it’s been occupying real estate in my brain for a long time. It’s fun to see you starting out, and I’m keen to read your lore. The lore is the best part of the whole thing IMO.

    Re: non-wh40k related posts – I think that’s a good thing. I like to know that people are more complex than just liking one thing. Fandom can go too far you know? I am on a 40K kick right now, possibly due to my long absence from the hobby but I think it will settle down after I finish restoring my Space Marines army.

    1. Well, now you’re just making me anxious. 😛 The setting is what gets me invested too, since I don’t really have any friends IRL that are into the hobby, and hey, there’s plenty of fluff in all sorts of flavours to get lost in lore-wise. What’s really cool is that the Imperium is so incomprehensibly massive that you could feasibly write in almost anything, provided that it delivers that “grimdark” tone.

      WRT hobbies, I tend to hit something really hard, then back off to do something else for a few months, and then maybe return to it after a while. I don’t think there’s anything particularly wrong with that, but it might be weird for someone following the blog to suddenly see that all its recent posts are about Animal Crossing or something. Oh well.

      Thanks for your comment, by the way!

  2. The 40k universe is almost like a comfortable, if grim and dark, corner you can retreat to when the rest of the world gets far less comfortable. It’s really easy (in no bad way) to immerse yourself in a specific aspect, and sharing that with others can be part of the fun.

    But it’s great to see that people aren’t just about one thing, to the exclusion of all other interests, and I think it’s important to not feel obligated to produce a specific type of content on one subject. Write about what you want, not what you think everyone else expects of you.
