Assault Terminators - Complete

Put the finishing touches to three Lightning Claw and one Thunder Hammer+Storm Shield Assault Terminators today to finish up my squad of ten.
Had the torsos, heads and should pads under coated in a box for literally months and finally got around to them.

Stormraven and other hobby updates.

Lets be honest here, I haven't painted or built anything in a long long time. I just haven't had to motivation to get it done.

Then I had an absolutely excellent game against my friend James a few weeks back, and wow did it kick start my motors for wanting to get some stuff painted. I don't know why this game specifically did, perhaps because it really was brilliant fun even if I did loose, but it really helped.

It's not that I fell out of love with the hobby or my Ultramarines, I just haven't really been motivated to do anything lately.

Film Review: The Raid

Released in 2011 and directed by Gareth Evans The Raid is an Indonesian martial arts action film starring Iko Uwais.
This fast paced, gore filled, bullet flying, machetefest delivers everything you expect from an action film and more. A feat that many western action films fall drastically short of.

Film Review: World War Z

I went to see World War Z a short while ago and have been meaning to review it for a while now. 
Directed by Marc Forster it is a film I have been looking forward to since it was announced.
I went to see the film a couple of weeks after release, by which time a lot of people I know had already seen it. Said people had fed back a lot of mixed reviews on the film,  none of them hailing it as great. Some said it was utterly terrible, others said it was just okay. Because of this I entered the screening with a feeling of trepidation. Would I enjoy it? Was it going to be a waste of time as I had been told?

Film Review: Pacific Rim

"Today we are cancelling the apocalypse!" 

Guillermo del Toro is back this time bringing us a love letter to Japanese Kaiju monster films. A tale of invading monstrous creatures(Kaiju), and humanities fight to stop them using the gigantic robots known as Jaegers.

It's nice to have a summer blockbuster that isn't a re-make or a sequel. Pacific Rim is $180million special effects behemoth of unpretentious fun.

Review: A Purple Cello EP by Rob Scallon

I have been following Rob Scallon's work for a fair while now. He is a marvellous musician and from the few interactions I have had with him a sound chap as well!

He announced the release of his new EP 'A Purple Cello' in his vlog from 10/07/2013, and being a lover of the Cello as well as Rob's music I of course downloaded it.

I will say right now, I have not been disappointed by the purchase. Although I am extremely jealous that he has such a beautiful purple Cello!
