Ok, a little detour thismorning from the normal schedule of things. A bit of a rant, if you will.
For those of you in other parts of the world, Australia recently elected a new Prime Minister, by the name of Tony Abbott. We have a similar setup to the US, in that there are two major parties who promise the world, when really they're just selling us garbage in the hope we buy it to satisfy their shareholders (aka the big boys financing them). All fun and games, which makes the start to my day kinda disturbing.
My other half and I were waiting for our regular train, when as it pulls up, not 1.5m from us (or about 4.5 feet) the doors to the train open, a man stands in the doorway... unzips his fly, pisses all over the platform, the door threshold and himself to an extent, says "Soooorryyyyy"... and steps back inside just as the doors close, with the train pulling away from the station. My other half, pissing herself laughing in disblief and myself wondering if our new Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, has a twin (who likes to wear hoodies). We caught the next train, avoiding the puddle left behind.
Perhaps it was an Omen, who knows...
What I do know, is that in the next month there will be some gorgeous miniatures arrive in the form of Warp Spiders and Fire Dragons from Sri Lanka that were posted end of last week. Adding to that, a bunch of Non-GW Jetbikes (Shining Spears and Warlocks), a Phoenix Bomber and some Spirit Seers from The Sound of Machines and some pretty hi-def style HQ units from Vincent down in Adelaide.
That reminds me... Must send off the rune to be painted on the Avatar's loincloth!
Below, the reference image by Broken Blade in the UK that I sent to Vincent as a guide to what i'm chasing paint wise ;) naturally with the black/tiger striping on the loincloth and rune attached.
