For the first time in the two decades that I've been miniature gaming, I snagged one of the limited edition codexes from Games Workshop. I was never to grab either of the White Scar or Salamander limited edition codexes for 6th and 7th edition and I actually yelled, "Yes!" when I saw that GW had some of the Omnisiah editions still available.
I also picked up a box of Kastelan Robots to bolster my forces. Since I built my ad mech (the Pilgrims of Erudition) around the War Host Convocation, I never picked up the 50s-style robots from space. I know a lot of people don't like the design, but I really dig them... The amount of fire power that two models can dish out with the proper protocols is amazing and I may add two more to my forces.
This afternoon I started putting them together when I ran into one of the more unusual pieces that GW has crafted...
This tiny piece (data drive?) is supposed to inserted into this slot.
I don't know why they made this tiny bit to insert into a slot that is next to three other features that have already been molded onto the model, but OK GW, challenge accepted.
I use my fine snips, delicately sand down the data drive piece, apply the smallest amount of glue ... things are going according to plan. Then I flip the page in the instructions.
Then you are supposed to cover it up?
This bit that I can't figure out why it needs to be two separate pieces gets obscured anyway?
Maybe the modelers are getting paid by the bit?
Oh well. At least I can say my models are complete.
Speaking of small parts...
I haven't post in a while or even played because I have a small part... in a TV broadcast of a 1930s style radio play.

The troupe is called, "The Air Command" and the show is called, "Theatre of the Mind." This year's production is titled, "Curse of the Mummy." Like any theatrical production, it's a large time commitment but it is really a labor of love and I look forward to it every year.
