Welcome to 2015.
In late 2012 I ended up throwing together a pallet or two out of craft sticks. While serviceable enough looking, I never ended up using either of them due to an overall feel of something lacking. Every now and again I'd kick around the idea of pallets again, and set it aside. This time when I started thinking about it again, I had a breakthrough. I could use matches along with the craft sticks to get the look I wanted.
This year feels like terrain so far. Stay tuned to see what it brings.

Last year my coworker and I were playing Terraria a bit and he told me about Starbound. At that point it was very much in beta. A year later and it is still in beta, but the first major update in quite some time is coming. Here is the official trailer for the Winter Update.
We're that much closer to 1.0 :)
p.s. I'm bad at doing hobby stuff when the days are short. Sorry.

I found this on Reddit and it cracked me up. Even more funny is the fact that WU is using bogus DCMA notices to have the content removed from social media sites. Problem, WU? This type of image is legal since it's comparative advertising.
If you haven't bought some BTC hype yet, you ought to look into it. Good things are coming, people.
p.s. hobby content coming soon I promise.

In March I painted up this guy for the painting contest over on /r/warhammer40k.
A couple years ago and in anticipation of this project I bought a few sets of bionics from here and there. I ended up with four legs that I couldn't help but try in the above configuration. I seem to recall a Skitarii commander from one Black Library novel or another with four legs and a battle axe. With that in mind I set out to build my company champion.
|Early configuration of legs|
|The torso on the hips made for too squat a profile, so I added a 'spine'|
|This arm proved impractical for the pose I wanted, and has been replaced|
|Apothecary's power pack|
Here is the assembled command squad. Most of them still need power packs and servo arms, but by the time I get to publishing this post I will probably have started on those. Hell, at the rate I post these might even be painted by then.
