Nick von Cover  Middle aged family man getting back into hobbies after a decade hiatus. Trying to get my progeny to surpass me.

Another game of Star Trek Ascendancy. I was doing great. Until I found the Borg that is. #startrekascendancy #boardgames

My daughter decided (for the first time ever) that it was painting night. She painted some Mice and Mystics figures and I managed to find this guy. I’ve never painted a #reaperbones mini before and so far it’s not bad. The mold lines are impossible to see, but paint sticks without primer just as they say. #reaperminiatures #paintingminiatures

Star Trek Ascendency tonight at my FLGS #texastoysoldier. Am I doing well? I have no idea. #startrekascendancy #boardgames #boardgame

Back from vacation and my Eyes Mk III have arrived! Looks like I may actually have to start painting! #paintingminiatures #paintingminis #paintingwarhammer #paintingwarhammer40k #warhammer40k #wh40k #wargaming #minipainting

30 minute soak while the cleaner was heating up, 25 minutes ultrasonic cleaning, and 30 minutes if so while I was at lunch. Then I attacked the #carnifex with the Brush o’ Power and results are good. #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #wh40k #paintingwarhammer #paintingminiatures #paintingminis #miniaturepainting #minipainting #tyranids

After a thorough scrub with an electric toothbrush progress is looking good at cleaning the #carnifex up. Back for another soak in the bath. #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #paintingwarhammer #miniaturepainting #wh40k #tyranids #paintingminiatures #paintingminis

The #carnifex are out of the bath with little visible results. However just a little attention from a cheap electric toothbrush does wonders. #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #wh40k #paintingwarhammer #miniaturepainting #minipainting #paintingminiatures #paintingminis

The #carnifex brood brothers are headed for a nice ultrasonic bath. Their chitin will positively glow when they’re out. 25 minutes in a 50/50 Simple Green/water solution at 65C/149F. #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #warhammer #wh40k #paintingwarhammer #miniaturepainting #minipainting #paintingminiatures #paintingminis

Still prepping to start painting the new #tyranids army. Old school #carnifex times two getting stripped today. #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #warhammer #paintingwarhammer #wargames #miniaturepainting #wh40k #minipainting #paintingminis

This is for @bigdenopaints. I’m sure you’ve seen it before, but it’s what I thought of from our other conversation.

Well @va_wolf, here’s a quick shot with studded pauldrons and all. They never got more they a battlefield paint job. I still like the random assortment of shoulder pads as a shortcut to give the guys personality. #40k #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #paintingwarhammer #miniaturepainting #wh40k #minipainting #paintingminiatures

Now it’s official. I’m officially back into #40k. #wh40k #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #wargames #tabletopgaming
