Progress update and other stuff

It's been a pretty busy week with the family over Easter, so I've not had much hobby time. I have managed to make a start on painting my Nurgle Sorcerer, he's undercoated and I've got most of the way through painting his armour. I'm hoping to finish him this week as I'm painting him for the 40k Radio Freebootaz Motivational Challenge they're running on the forums. I've also finished my Inquisitor conversion, and in fact he looks pretty much the same as the WIP. I've also cleaned up and based 2 Servo skulls, a Cherubim, an Acolyte and a sage for his retinue. For good measure I put together an AoBR Ork Nob I got free with White Dwarf a few months ago.

Warpstone Flux has opened voting on his April Army List challenge which is themed around the Alpha Legion. You can read my entry on the blog there or my post here. Why not head over and cast a vote? There's 4 great lists on there.

Not related to gaming, I took my oldest son (who is 3 and a half) to see Monsters Vs Aliens yesterday at our local cinema. We both really enjoyed it, and if you've got kids I'd recommend going. It's got a real classic sci-fi vibe to it, and there are several parts which are really funny.

I have yet to take my daughter who is only 2.75 to any movies. When we watch them at home see has about a 50:50 chance of paying attention through most of it. I have to remember to make sure they are G though. We got her Madagascar 2 for Easter and that has more violence than I would like.

I was a bit dubios myself as to whether he would sit through the whole film (he'll sit through a DVD at home), but he was really good. Just made sure I took a drink and some (healthy) snacks for him to eat.

It's difficult gauging what he should and shouldn't watch. He's seen Return of the Jedi about 50 times and likes Clone Wars, but they're probably a little old for him truth be told. I'm sure he'd like LoTR as well but I'm going to wait a couple of years for that one.

...and apparently I can't spell dubious either...
