User Content Wednesday – Lorin Alpha

Hey all!  Since HoP Idol has been running, the User Content Wednesday feature has been suspiciously missing.  Well, the contest is in it’s final leg and there’s nothing quite like general dumb-assery to get things rolling again.

Waaaaay back in June, a man who goes by Lorenzen realized (like many) that the House of Paincakes was indeed the coolest shit ever.  He shot us a request to join and we were all like “YAY!”.  But we just plain forgot to add him to the rolls… for five goddamn and/or fucking months.  The guy even won the essay contest for that week!  What he hell is wrong with us?!  You would have though that the least we could do was add him to a blog list.  Apparently, we could do quite a bit less than that. 

Which brings us to today.  We fucked up and we have 5 months to make up for.  So here’s just a taste of what we hid from you.  Enjoy these excerpts and make sure to click on the links for extra juice:


I cant think of anything to call this post so im going with “Kholek to the face”

“Throughout my hobbying days i’ve attempted to improve my painting
techniques and for the most part i have succeeded except for one major
factor.. i cannot be arsed.
its a defining part of my painting now and one of the reasons i have
started sharing my own brand of laziness and word vomit with the
interweb, im trying atm to make a full company of marines.. but painting
the same scheme 100+ times is killing me, i can barely be bothered to
finish more than 2 marines usually because once ive done one “properly” i
start going “man i hate highlighting it takes too long, i also hate
basing.. why the fuck do i have to paint sand?” and such things go on in
my mind until im thinking about paying some small albino child from the
3rd world to paint my army and if he gets anything wrong ill beat him
to death with a bath mat.

then i get onto a new model.. something ive not painted before or a
special character, and i start to have fun and go “hey this schemes
pretty cool, i really should do that tactical squad whilst im in the
mood” and the whole cycle repeats itself and im left with a half done
character and a tactical squad who have roughly blocked in colours and
dust on them from where theyve sat in a cabinet pointing at me with
their powerfist and bolters and judging me through unpainted helmet
lenses.”

Khiros: Guardian of the flame

…Khiros is a bad mofo from the original training cadre of the fire angels
who bit the bullet in a joint campaign with their parent chapter.. who
gave over the contemptor as an honour to khiros’s sacrifice and general
badassery..

The Morning After 

“So.. i did the whole gamesday thing yesterday and thought id post my opinion on it all.

1st things first.. Wards hat was fucking stupid, he looked like he wanted to be in some jazz musical or something, full on twat.

got a small bit of time to talk with Phil Kelly, told him his dex’s
rocked and made my demands that he writes the black templar codex and no
one else.”

When in doubt, shout, be bald and carry a weapon the length of a small car

And, finally some words that sum up exactly how I feel about a certain open source photo editor:

…in closing, photoshop is your friend, i missed it when having to work
with gimp (which has a suitable name for something which is pretty much
wank) and am glad its back on my pc..
