SinSynn gets his groove back!

Hey folks, SinSynn here.

Thought I'd talk some Hobby this week.

Not that I don't wanna rant 'bout dem Space Marines (cuz I do), find flimsy excuses to reference Tentacle Hentai (cuz I do), or post pics of Megan Fox (I think you already know)......

Wait a second...I need excuses?

*Left: Space Marines...they suck. Center: (fapfapfapfap) Right: My most memorable first date ever

Ah, glad we got that outta the way...DON'T YOU JUDGE ME!

So...yeah...This week I've been painting stuffs. Holy crap I missed painting stuffs.
It's been about...3 months, I guess.

Crunch Vs. Fluff.....

Writing a good codex must be pretty hard work. You need to keep a balance between the armies background (The Fluff) and the rules that allow that army to be fielded on the table-top (The Crunch).

For me, any codex would need the following things to put it into the 'decent' category,


1) Background material that integrates smoothly with previously written material rather than pissing on it (unless it was utter drivel in the first place I suppose)
2) Information on individual units that makes you want to use them in an army before you even read the rules for them.
3) No 'Mary Sue' units at even the one.....
4) A coherent theme that runs through all the unit entries.
5) Artwork that inspires.....

New Member Monday - The Case of the Forgotten Title

Hello Cats and Kittens!  It's another week of the ol' zip zop boobity bop at the House of Paincakes.  We've got our usual fair of cool shit scheduled this week.  Plus, the very probable continuation of the HoP Idol contest that had, sadly, been interrupted by death, sadness and a the search for a secret guest judge.

LinkWithin is GO!
Right off the bat, we wanted to add the LinkWithin widget to our posts.  But right off the bat we knew that would be a waste off time until we had built up some content. We're months past the point when we should have added the feature, but whadayagonnado?  We've added it now, so y'all can look forward to looking at our past.  I'm told that it takes some time for the thingamabobber to get its sea legs as it were, so bear with us and please refrain from pointing out any nonsensical links.  But you can feel free to tell us how awesome we are for our selection of value added features.

[Musings of a Game Store Owner] Getting Funky

Let's drop some Funke Funke Wisdom

This week's topic is pretty potent but fairly universal - Funk

It's something we have all experienced at one time or another; that person that really needs a bath.
