FUCKING FUCK STEPHEN CONROY FUCK

June 28, 2009

Fuck. So. Fucking. Much. Fuck.

WELL!

That is to say, FUCK. Stupid fucking fuck.

Alright. The point. The fucking point. Fucking getting there.

SO! You know how I was saying about our no R-18+ games a little while ago? Well, I thought that some progress was being made what with all the commotion and opening the debate to the public.

WELL I WAS FUCKING WRONG.

We aren’t getting R-18+ games anytime soon. Okay. Disappointed but I could deal with it. After all, we can always import.

OH WAIT. NO WE FUCKING CAN’T.

The FUCKING government has decided that the internet is evil. They want to start blocking sites which host or sell R-rated games.

YES THAT’S RIGHT.

YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BE ALLOWED TO IMPORT.

Banning internet sites? What are we? FUCKING CHINA?

Fuck you Communications Minister Stephen Conroy.

FUCK YOU.

-Fucking Vyperchild

** At the moment, this is still something Labor is trying to get through the senate. As such, I am going to turn the senate into a gauntlet of horrors so terrible that Stephen Conroy will break down as the Labor party is whittled down in increasingly horrible ways and he will authorise the creation of a game based on running this wonderful gauntlet. You can never win. You can only die in ways so gory and original that no director would be able to film a horror movie with such content because they would find themselves coughing up blood at the mere thought. It will be awesome. Also, FUCK **

Automarines

June 21, 2009

Sometimes, warhammer leads to some awesome discoveries. Hello Kitty space marines (which are everywhere nowadays), hippy necrons and pink fluffy land raider tanks. Other such examples are the following.

This is a Necron Monolith, a floating super-laser tank fortress thing:

necron monolithThis is Megatron, leader of the decepticons:

Megatron And this is fucking badass:

TransformerMonolith

And people think Monoliths are hard to kill NOW. Just wait till you have to put up with the inevitable return of this guy as Super-Monolith Galvatron.

I would love to actually build a model for this (If I had any sculpting skill). Of course, making a transforming mini would be damn near impossible, but still. I mean, he’s got a gauss flux arc attached to his fucking knees! His knees!

Also, want to see Unicron made into a Necron World Engine.

However, that isn’t the only Transformers/Warhammer 40K crossover I found. An awesome site called automarines.com is all about combining these two franchises.

One example is this converted space marine dreadnought made to look like, well, y’know.

AUTOM1006Additionally, the site has some Deceptitau, my favourites of which are these simple Megatron and Shockwave Crisis Suit conversions.

DeceptiTau_007
Hooray for crossovers!

OH BUT THERE’S ONE MORE PIECE OF AWESOMENESS TO SHARE. AND I LEFT THE BEST TIL LAST.

After noticing that the Ork Trukk had a trailer connection, a guy named madscuzzy decided to use it to build Orktimus Prime:

IMG_1466That’s what happens when you get those crazy Orks to build a Transformer. Kinda looks like Optimus if he was from the Planet of Junk =D

BUT, this madscuzzy, like any converter, is insane. He was not content just to have such a beautiful Trukk. He had to take his evil genius to the next level.

So, in some Ork Big Mek’s workshop somewhere, madscuzzy did the impossible. He did this:

OMFG IT’S ALIVE.

Orktimus Prime is my fucking hero. Madscuzzy too.

I’z Orktimus Prime an’ I darez ta be WAAAAAAAGGHH!!

-Vyperchild, who hopes to one day add ch-ch-ch-ch to his repertoire of 40K sound effects.

In the grim darkness of the distant future, there is only Hello Kitty:

Don’t worry about Swine Flu, I have a plan!

June 19, 2009

I was playing some old Mega Drive/Genesis games when, suddenly, it came to me.

I KNOW HOW TO STOP SWINE FLU.

That’s right, I, Vyperchild, have discovered the answer you’ve all been searching for.

*applause*
*wolf whistles*
*thrown panties*

I am putting together an elite team with unparalleled knowledge and experience in dealing with such threats.

Allow me to introduce you to the leader of the team:

OoT - Ganon-550x 
Hailing from the nation of Hyrule, the steadfast and silent Link has had more past lives than you could poke a deku stick at, and in each of them has gained much knowledge about swine from his battles with Moblins and the evil pig-lord Ganon (pictured). With a sword with enough power to cut through an evil as potent as Swine Flu, he will make a fine team leader.

The second member is none other than Sparkster:

Rocket_Knight_Adventures_GEN_ScreenShot3.gif
Sparkster is an opossum. But don’t let his cute animal looks fool you! With his deadly shooting sword, his tough blue armour and a super jetpack, he’s one Rocket Knight who knows how to kick ass. His assistance to the team will mostly come in the form of dealing with the Swine Flu hordes and their monstrous pig-tanks and pig-robots.

The third team member is our driver:

DiddyKongRacing-620x

He may just be a tiny monkey with a hat, but Diddy Kong’s driving skills are top notch. In fact, it was his ability to unerringly drive cars and hovercraft and fly planes that led to his victory over the enormous Wizpig. We have every confidence in Diddy’s ability to get the team where they need to be to stop Swine Flu.

The final member of the team is:

tomba_screen001
TOMBI! After his bracelet was stolen by some greedy Koma Pigs, Tombi started fighting a personal war with swine everywhere. Regardless of whether he has to tackle the swine or throw their magic asses into enchanted handbags, he always gets the job done.

Although, it must be noted that our scientists are currently investigating Tombi due to the possibility of his ‘rape’ combat technique being the origin of Swine Flu. 

AND THAT’S THE TEAM!

*applause*

However, we also have a reserve member in case the Swine Flu situation escalates:

foxarwing
With his experience in space combat against Pigma Dengar, Fox McCloud’s services shall be employed should Swine Flu begin to reach beyond Earth. Additionally, his Landmaster Tank may be employed to assist Sparkster in dealing with the mechanized swine forces.

Another reserve was considered, however it has been agreed that although Duke Nukem’s experience in killing Pig Cops could be beneficial, his inability to turn up on time would hinder the team’s efficiency.

-Vyperchild

** I have just been informed that no member of the team actually exists. I am sorry to say that when Spanky Ham and Babe attack, we are all DOOMED **

Khorne Daemons Plog in 3…2…1…

June 15, 2009

HOORAY I MEAN BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!

Today I made my first purchase towards my Khorne Daemon army. Naturally, I bought a box of bloodletters which contained these sprues:

IMG_1069IMG_1070 IMG_1071The kit contains parts to build 10 bloodletters. Compared to most ten/twelve man kits I think this one is excellent value, being $15 cheaper. Even before the price this is a recommended kit, after all, they’re all so very pretty.

For those of you that bothered to/can count, you may have noticed there are actually 11 heads and a few extra other parts. Which is great for versatility, although not to the extent of say, a space marine kit. Still, it should give enough combinations to not have obvious similarities between models when I have 40+ bloodletters.

I’m very much looking forward to building these minis. They look like fun. Blood-drenched fun. Painting however will be a bit of struggle, because I’ve never really painted a mini before. But still, I’m happy to learn with such pretty models 🙂

So, this all leads me to proclaim two things. Firstly, my Khornate daemons have finally begun!

HOORAY BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD

Secondly, this blog is now officially home to my project log, so check back for occasional updates as I build my war host. Of course, I’ll continue with the usual nonsense of the blog as well.

I look forward to showing off this project in all it’s murderous glory over the next few months. If I had a bottle of wine I’d probably drink it totally do that thing where they spray the wine all over people to commemorate some event definitely drink it.

BLOOD FOR THE BLO- AH SCREW IT. HOORAY!

Grind your soul to make my bread

June 14, 2009

646718a
That is what is affectionately called a Soul Grinder. A combination of daemon and machine built in the Soul Forge of Chaos. I plan on having two of these in my 1500 point 40K Khornate daemons army, each with a different upgrade for those maw cannons.

Although all Soul Grinders are undedicated (that is, they don’t follow a particular Chaos God anymore), my Soul Grinders will be built to show a previous alignment to Khorne. One will be painted similarly to the one in the picture, and the other will have black skin with lava cracks, and the metal plating will be red with bronze/gold trim.

Additionally, with the expansion of my daemon force to Apocalypse size (with the inclusion of my following project, World Eaters Chaos marines), I hope to build upon my Soul Grinder group to allow for the special Soul Grinder Apocalypse formation.

But that’s all just a little dream for now. What matters is that Soul Grinders are fucking epic killing machines (half-literally).

Fell Annan’Krath

June 14, 2009

I ran into a little difficulty when trying to decide upon a Bloodthirster for my Khornate daemon army. I dislike GW’s own Bloodthirster mini, as it’s a little to small for my liking and I want something that’s really imposing. Plus, I dislike the human-faced one, and although I like the bull one I want a strong humanoid face for my Annan’Krath.

So I came upon Forgeworld’s Greater Daemons and their amazing (and huge) Bloodthirster:

btp8I think that thing is awesome. Truly an epic model. A 10.5 inch tower of wanton slaughter. A $250 murderous beast.

WHAT?!

Yeah. He costs a lot. Too much for me (especially considering how much I’m going to be putting into the Bloodcrusher unit). So perhaps this will be a model I’ll look at once I start playing Apocalypse/have a job.

My options again looked grim. Even with the many miniature companies out there who build giant angry devil things, I couldn’t find anything better than the disliked GW Bloodthirster.

Until I found Ultraforge and their Greater Wardemon.

paintedwar4This 5 inch tall mini won’t make as much of an impression as Forgeworld’s gargantuan monster, but it’s still a heck of a Bloodthirster. Price-wise, it costs more than GW’s Bloodthirster, but not so much as to put me off.

For my paint scheme, it will be similar to what is pictured, although the red will be the same as my Bloodletters etc. so it will look a little different. There will also be a more dramatic effect on the eyes, which will be white (I usually find solid white to be a better colour for rage-filled eyes) and have near black shading for the sockets. The horns and spikes will be essentially the same, although I might blend into a darker brown toward the base of the horn. The armour and sword will have the biggest changes, with the armour being black with a bronze/gold trim and the sword being a shiny black like my Bloodletters’ Hellblades. Also I may change the little claw things on the top of the wings because I’m not really sure if I like how that looks.

So this is essentially an introduction to my Fell Bloodthirster, Annan’Krath, who will be terrorizing a Hiveworld near you in the grim darkness of the not too distant future (again, hopefully!).
