THQ: Space Marine Demo

Downloaded the demo this weekend and played both available levels. I have watched the build up to this game quite closely and have really wanted it to work. Thankfully my impression from the demo is that THQ have indeed created a good game. The ability to switch ranged weapons quickly I liked. I am not sure on the ability to carry four ranged weapons though. I would have preferred sticking to two for a bit of realism. The stun/execute combo to regain health is certainly interesting. I wait to see if there are other options such as apothecary packs or anything like that. If the stun/execute is the only way to regain health I can see that being somewhat limiting but may make for an interesting challenge. All in all this will still be a release day purchase for me. Will probably see BOps traded in to cover some of the cost.

Airbrush on its way

Well I have taken the leap and bought an airbrush of eBay. See what it looks like when it turns up. Now if I can just find a compressor . . . .

Striking Scorps - Speed painted-ish

OK in an attempt to get some projects off my shelf I have finished off 6 striking scorpions that I promised to do for a friend ages ago and have been very slack in doing. These have been, for me at least, speed painted or more properly an attempt to paint faster whilst still achieving a nice finish.

I am quite happy with the way they have turned out.

Once again apologies for crappy iPhone pics. I really REALLY need to sort out better photography.
