So I finally finished a bunch of Numenoreans that I have converted to Black Numenoreans. It was just a case of waiting for a dry enough day to clear coat them.
It started with the test piece awhile back…
He did get a bit of minor improvements when I was working on his colleagues. I know some Tolkien purists will wonder on the pale skin and blue eyes. My wife and I decided to be inspired by Jackson’s take on the Mouth of Sauron as well as GW´s take on them being supernaturally long lived as a gift from Sauron.
While I may have made some progress on my backlog of work, it was a case of one step forward and two steps back as I won an auction for a game of Endure the Stars. The plan being to lift from it what I can for future Core Space Adventures…
In addition I finished book 4 of the Honor Harrington series. I am amazed at how much I am enjoying these books. Whilst I was never as skilled as Honor, I very much identify with her moral decisions and disposition. It is a bit like reading a story of one of my descendants.
I also caught Pacific Rim 2….
Whilst it was not a great film it was entertaining, in fact much better than I expected but that could be because I had very, very low expectations.
I also finally finished Z Nation.
Season 5, now the final season, felt strangely unattached to the previous seasons in my opinion. It was watchable but not great and I was somewhat relieved when it was finally over. I did feel better than I did at the end of season 4, when I thought that would be the end of the show. At least season 5 does not end as depressing as season 4 did!
Of interest to me are the two versions of War of the Worlds….
The BBC version looks like a nice historical piece.
The SBS version looks contemporary and I noticed something surprising about it….
…. where are the American military forces? Interesting to see French troops in the spotlight for a change in an English language show.
