4 Sunday Best #23: Green Stuff

"HULK SMASH!!!"  When Stan Lee created the green skin behemoth known as the Incredible Hulk in 1962 he created an anti hero that has stayed true to his mould for half a century now.  Stan Lee once explained that his inspiration behind the Hulk was from combining two of his favourite monsters. "'I combined Jekyll and Hyde with Frankenstein,' he explains, 'and I got myself the monster I wanted, who was really good, but nobody knew it. He was also somebody who could change from a normal man into a monster, and lo, a legend was born.' Lee remembers, 'I had always loved the old movie Frankenstein. And it seemed to me that the monster, played by Boris Karloff, wasn't really a bad guy. He was the good guy. He didn't want to hurt anybody. It's just those idiots with torches kept running up and down the mountains, chasing him and getting him angry. And I thought, 'Wouldn't it be fun to create a monster and make him the good guy?'"  This week's Sunday best also thought it would be fun to create monstrosity of his/her own with the help of everyone's favourite sculpting material "GREEN STUFF".

Hulk #1 - Dark Future Games: 13th Company Thunder Wolves WIP 1
Looks like CVinton got tired of fellow Dark Future Games author Old School Terminator hogging the lime light on Sunday Best.  It is clearly evident that CVinton has some serious Hulk inspired issues going here as demonstrated by his unique take on a Thunder Wolf.  I swear I can here the rage in the model itself is screaming out to smash the warp itself.

Hulk #2 Dark Future Games: 13th Company Thunder Wolves WIP 2
CVinton smashed the competition into a pulp this week and ended up eating all the lime light for Sunday Best.  His pent up modelling rage continued deep into the week when he created another one of his thunder wolf monsters.  The shear amount of detail that CVinton has bulked out into each of these models makes me want to smash my Space Wolves and start again.

Hulk #3 - Dark Future Games: 13th Company Thunder Wolves WIP 3
I fear that CVinton may not ever be able to revert back to his human form again.  An entire week as green Hulking monster is just too much for one to handle.  It is clear that as the week went on his level of rage grew with each new Thunder Wolf that he created.  Each one becoming not only bigger, furrier but also a hell of lot more scarier.

His pent up anger still continues as we speak as he he has produced yet another Hulk of a Thunder Wolf. His ability to think outside the box like Hulk inner ego Dr Banner clearly demonstrates that CVinton is still alive somewhere inside this green monster that he has become.   This is a first for Sunday Best by having only one blog in lime light but it only seems fair considering the Hulking nature of the blogger and the theme.

0 Sunday Best #22: Showcase

Daniel Seagrave, a British artist that created a plethora of death metal album covers and was recently showcased in the art and culture magazine known as Juxtapoz.  His attention to detail is unreal and the images that he conjures up are reminiscent of daemon worlds.  The painting above may be titled "City Roots" but the glass tubes appear to be showcasing the despair of the inhabitants.  This weeks "Sunday Best" are inhabitants of the city known as Blog-o-Sphere and are each showcasing the work of hobby related artist(s).

Inhabitant #1 - Dark Future Games: It Came From the Forums
Old School Terminator appears to never change out of his Sunday Best as he once again find his way into The Chaos Manifesto.  This weeks he is showcasing the work of Mad Matt, who has created an impressive Dark Templar army that is lavish from head to toe.

Inhabitant #2 - Hungry Ghosts: Kastle of Khorne
Hungry Ghost has amassed a collection of Chaos Dwarfs that blow your mind away.  The crazy part is that this past weeks post was but a fraction of his work.  Over the month or so he will running a guided tour through the Kastle of Khorne.  I have been following his blog for quite some time now now and every post leaves me in awe of his Chaos Dwarves.

Games Workshop has been pumping out blog post after blog post for quite some time now.  From showcasing the work of various customers to studio built armies to Golden Demon winners Games Workshop is using their blog as a pedestal for the hobby.  The Golden Daemon winners from Italy are deservingly showcased this month on their blog.

Each of these artist like Daniel Seagrave have lavish their models with a level of detail that surpasses their peers.  Their collection of models and the time they spent creating their works of art is incomprehensible.  All that one can do is view the beauty that they have created as we float on past in our glass tubes.

2 Sunday Best #21: Creative Thinking

Philipus Aureolus Paracelsu a Swiss Renaissance physician, botanist, alchemist, astrologer, and general occultist captured the essence of creative thinking when he said, "Thoughts give birth to a creative force that is neither elemental nor sideral. Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow.  When a man undertakes to create something, he establishes a new heaven, as it were and from it the work that he desires to create flows into him.  For such is the immensity of man that he is greater than heaven and earth." This week's Sunday Best strives to showcase the heavens that three such occultist were able to achieve when the they set their minds into motion. 

CaterpillarHomicide from 3+ FTW may not have created your atypical heaven with his Zombie Objective Marker but the end result was still beautiful in terms of his concept and creativity.  The life that he imbued into the zombies is uncanny.  Every once in awhile if you stare long enough you can actually see their frenzied movements.  

W.I.P. mind left the dimension of table top gaming when he created these three Ork Big Gunz.  The process that his mind travelled to and from is impossible to understand but the end result is a Big Meks dream come true.  Not only was he able to make his Big Mek gush in bliss but he appeased the Warboss by keeping the cost down to the bare minimum.  

Ron at From the Warp transcended the hobby itself this week when he used infused his creative thinking with his love for his daughter.  I am left speechless at what his mind and heart were able to create. To try and capture the essence of his work in words would tarnish the heaven he created.

We are but a slave to bondage that minds were born into.  A prison that you cannot see taste or touch.  A prison for your mind.  When one is able to shake off these shackles it is then that a whole new world of thinking is at your disposal.  The next time you decided to venture down the same corridor of thought that you always take, I challenge you to take a different path and explore the vast array of rooms that lead off of it.

7 Sunday Best #20: Necrons

"In appearance, the Necrons are skeletal parodies of living beings with radiating energies emanating from their mechanical limbs and lifeless eyes. All of their numbers possess sophisticated auto-repair systems throughout their exo-skeletal systems that can repair even the most crippling of damages. While this can keep them functioning constantly, should there be irreparable damage sustained, the Necron "phases out". Both their minds and their bodies are teleported to the nearest tomb complex where they either remain in storage until repairs are made or a new body is forged. This act does, however, come at a cost as each act of transferrence leads to a decay in the Necron's engrams. As such, those Necrons that have "died" and phased out hundreds of times suffer the most for they become little more than automatons who have lost the memory of the creature that they used to be in life" (Lexicanum).  You cannot keep a good robot down and long time readers of The Chaos Manifesto know that you cannot keep good robot from me either.  No matter how you decide to take out a Necron they find a way to drag their metallic body out of the mud.  You can call them all kinds of nasty names, shoot them full of holes and even drop a bomb on them and they will get back up.  The blog-o-sphere tried hard this week by dragging the new Necron Codex through the mud but several bloggers set up bikini Necron washes.  They not only cleaned the mud off the robots but they polished them for the rest of the world to admire.  This week's "Sunday Best" are those such individuals so without further ado here they are.

Bikini #1 - The Emperor's  Codex: Necron Complaints Already?
Drkmorals is shocked at how fast it took the naysayers to start flinging the mud.  From his perspective the Necrons not only received a new codex, but one that expanded their fluff, gave them new units, new weapons and of course new rules.  Drkmorals not only cleaned off the mud but applied some eye linear and lipstick to the Necron Codex highlighting its' strong points.

Bikini #2 - White Scars: Food for Thought - Matt Ward
Stillfrosty found some frozen mud that was left over from the previous codices that the Necron Author brought upon the new Necron Codex.  Hopefully Matt Ward has figured out a way to follow in the footsteps of the Silent King as he is one hated man.  Stillfrosty chips away at frozen dirt on the Necron codex and offers Matt Ward a baby wipe.  Despite being able to see past the authors name and recognized the Necron codex for what it is he is left wonder why all the hate for Matt Ward.

Bikini #3 - Three Color Minimum: Necrons - A Fluffy Perspective
Student Teacher ignores the mud all together and shines a flood light onto the Necron Codex.  Focusing his efforts onto the codex's fluff he provides those of us without the codex a glimpse into the dark catacombs of the Necrons rich radiating history that now define who they are.

Bikini #4 -  From the Warp: How to Paint Necrons
Ron might have been able to clean the mud off the Necrons but he was unable to overcome millions of years of rust.  Then again it appears that Ron embedded the rust into his Necrons when painted his. Ron's provides his readers with an in-depth tutorial on one of many ways to paint your Necron Warriors.

Bikini #5 - Dark Future Games: It Came From the Forums - Swamp Necrons
Old School Terminator was not able to clean the mud off these Necrons but he did one hell of job at job at scrapping the mud off of them.  A timely effort on his behalf that highlights Marco Schulze swamp themed Necrons.  He may have scrapped a little to hard and deep as he also uncovered some Kroot Mercenaries underneath all that mud.

Bikini #6 - Immaterium Press: Well, they did say they’d be back
Dan Byer went well beyond cleaning the mud off the Necron codex by employing industrial cleaning product.  His thoughts on the Necrons codex are able to clean not only the outside of these automated machines but their core as well.  His insight into the Necron codex explains some of the trends we will see in Necron Armies and explores the coding behind some of the key units.

The mud slinging was heavy over the week that was and the negative emotions were flowing high.  The six bloggers above provided not only a bath for the Necrons but a refreshing insight.  Without bloggers like them the blog-o-sphere would turn on itself in due time by eating itself.  Much like trying to keep a Necron down these blogger should help ensure that you are able to say "we'll be back".

8 Birthday Giveaway Winner Is...

It's been one hell of month of partying over here at the Chaos Manifesto.  Between Billy Idol committing acts of debauchery and all the sex crazed Daemonettes running around you would swear that Satan took over the Playboy Mansion.  The after party is wrapping up so you better start pounding back the liquor and beer while my Robot maids start to kill up the mess.  By the way anyone passed out will be mistaken by the Robot maids as a dead corpse and will be disposed of accordingly.   Let's just hope that if you end up being feed to the pigs out back that you were not one of the two winners for my birthday giveaway.  Cannot quite figure out why I am giving away gifts when it my birthday but my staff of personal robots, in suits that are way too tight, highly advised it.  Something to do with the prevention of a donut attack they said but I stopped listening once my mind began to wonder if they all had guns or were just happy to see me.  I guess I should stop rambling and announce the winners...Winner of the GW Gift Certificate is...


That's right I am a scumbag who joined his own blog to buff my numbers and for the icing on the cake I won my own prize. Hahahahahaha SUCKERS!!!  Seriously I used a random generator and it picked number 88 which corresponded with me, the HotPanda.  All right all right I will run the random generator all are a bunch of little school girls crying over spilt milk.  Winner of the GW Gift Certificate is...

Congratulation HotPANDA on winning a GW Gift Certificate for the large sum of $40.  You have 7 days to leave a comment on this post or the prize reverts back to me as I will assume that you were fed to the pigs or were abducted by a Donut.  Hey, all you stop your whining as I will pick a new winner if that happens just as long as no one tells the authorities about what happened here at the Chaos Manifesto over the weekend.  The last thing I need is to be put on trial for involuntary manslaughter for giving someone the wrong dosage of their meds.  As for the other prize, the mystery one, for those of you who gave me a shout out post on your blog, the winner is....

Skarvald the Troll-faced

What...who even put his name in the draw in the first place???  I told you dam robots to not only throw him out of the party and burn everything he touched including his tickets for the giveaways.  Congratulations Skarvald the Troll-face as you are the Lucky winner of....cue drum roll please...a box of...smashed donuts!!! Just kidding, you actually going to receive a $15 GW Gift Certificate.  You too have 7 days to leave a comment on this post or I will simple assume you have eaten your face off and will redraw the prize.  I really dug the shout you gave me, especially the fire breathing HOTpanda!!!  Pure awesomeness.
Cheers to everyone for joining my blog and following it.  To all you who leave a comment from time to time thanks for letting me know your thoughts.  Those who have me me on their blog rolls and or gave a shout out you are always welcome to lurk in the dark corners of my blog.  Everyone it's time for you to get the hell out of here as my mom is on here way over for a cup of tea.

2 HoP Idol: Who Will Be the the Idol?

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself

With the House of Paincakes HoP Idol in it's greatest hits round, the top 3, I'm asking the blogging world to dance and to give their time to think. I'm in a dance to the death with two other authors who both have brought their game. Fear not though as I have dug deep into my arsenal and am busting a move with my audacious breaks and popping. Let's have a quick look at each of our competitors and what their series would be if they won the House of Paincakes first HoP Idol contest: 

Puking out a plethora of dumb questions HoTPanda has embarked on perilous journey in the realm that is Warhammer Fantasy. Lost at sea though this furry fiend has no idea where to start let alone what direction he should be heading in. He has been able to send out a series of messages in a bottle to ask you the readers for a helping hand. Each week he work his way from choosing an army to table top domination. In order to achieve this though he will looking at his audience to interact with him via comments and voting. Essentially you the readers are going to be his first mate and will guiding every decision that he makes. This army will not just be his but rather a community effort. 

Bold plans for a bold blogger is what Lantz has in the works. Sticking with the communities bread and butter Lantz is going to attempt to bridge the gap between 5th and 6th edition Warhammer 40k. With the plethora of rumours floating over the vast canyons of the blog-o-sphere Lantz will your sexy construction girl with the drive slow sign. 

With a voice and face for Radio Von is going to not only be your Dungeon Master but he will be the one holding hand as he dresses you up each week. Throwing down a d20 sized video blog Von makes a bold move to engage his audience through his soothing voice. He not only wants you to look down at his crouch for some strange reason but wants you to have a voice in where the Von Show will go. Essentially the blog itself is fashioned after a roleplaying adventure.

So there you have it folks, a HotPanda, a Coyote and some sort of a creature that is half tiger half octopus. Which one of these beast will be the first HoP Idol is up to you. Obviously you know who I have voted and want you to vote for but in the end the choice is yours. If I lose I may just be left "Dancing with Myself".

3 Sunday Best #19: Hallowe'en

Hallowe'en, otherwise know as All Hallows Eves, is a yearly holiday observed around the world on October 31. There is much debate between scholars on whether it is a mutation of the Christian holiday "All Saints Day" and pagan festivals that honour the dead.  Regardless Hallowe'en is a holiday rich in tradition that range from trick-or-treating (also known as "guising"), costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, watching horror films and eating a whole lot of candy.  WIthout a doubt this is my favourite holiday and these three bloggers captured the essence of it.

With Chris himself being of the undead blogger variety and a unquenchable thirst for terrain it is no surprise that his latest terrain features the dead.  To be more precise his terrain is decomposed of dinosaur skeletons.  This more than a mere trick as Chris has create seven master works of terrain that any gamer would die to play on.

Ian's dark ruinous power were at their full strength this past Hallowe'en.  With the local kids worshiping the unholy ground that his house is built on built and three daemonic idols in it was quite evident that the night was his.  His chaos pumpkin dedicated to the return of Horus was spectacular and his plague bearer pumpkin was sick.  My only complaint was that I did not get a full size chocolate bar.

This my fiends is a true treat brought to by the one and only Brian from A Gentleman's Ones.  His herd of zombies is beyond a belief and the dialog that he paired it up with was unreal.  These zombies are trick or treating for one treat and one treat only, Brains!!!  I'm not sure if Brian or if Tom will be enough to satisfy their undying hunger.

I was able to fill my gut for Hallowe'en by going on a Ghost Walk in downtown Victoria.  The night was filled with stories of grizzly murders, including one that may have been committed by "Jack the Ripper" himself.  To finish the night off I base coated 21 zombies of my own and butchered two helpless pumpkins.  My favourite holiday may be over a year away now but plans for next year are already haunting my head.

4 Sunday Best #18: Laws of Robotics

The Three Laws of Robotics are a set of rules devised by the science fiction author Isaac Asimov in his 1942 short story "Runaround".   The three laws are as follows:

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Prior to these three laws being created Robots were a menace to society.  Destroying entire city blocks, mass murders, pillaging and even stealing candy from babies.  It was through the creation of these laws that allowed Robots to lend a helping hand.  It's these week's "Sunday Best" that have best demonstrated the ability to help others.

Frontline Gamer sacrificed himself once he realized that he would not be able to meet the task at hand.  The result of not being able to complete the challenge would mean that one of three others would die.  Following the first law set out by his creator he gave up his spot in the House of Paincakes Idol contest so that three humans could live another day.

Old School Terminator is forced to obey the laws set out before, to promote those around him.  His selfless promotion of those who lurk in the dark recesses of the forums is a testament to his programming.  This week is no exception as he pushes the envelope by delving deeper than before by showcasing the work Morback of Le Blog De Kouzes.

Governed to protect his own existence and the identity of his troll face, Skarvald the Troll-faced, reached out to those in the blogging community for a lending hand.  Specifically he needed a hand with green stuffing for his new Warhammer Fantasy Ogre project.  Miniature Tim reached out to the Troll Face by offering up his skills, time and tutelage with some very-needed green stuff tutorials.  These two robots have embarked on journey togehter and 

Isaac Asimov himself saw his own existence in the world of sci-fiction in jeopardy during his early years and his internal programming stepped in ensure his survival.  Years later he explained the coding that saved his life "... one of the stock plots of science fiction was... robots were created and destroyed by their creator.  Knowledge has its dangers, yes, but is the response to be a retreat from knowledge? Or is knowledge to be used as itself a barrier to the dangers it brings? With all this in mind I began, in 1940, to write robot stories of my own – but robot stories of a new variety.  Never, never, was one of my robots to turn stupidly on his creator for no purpose but to demonstrate, for one more weary time, the crime and punishment of Faust." (Wikipedia)  Much like Asimov these three bloggers have a story of a new variety that begs to be shared.

3 Sunday Best #17: Army of...

Sometime life gives a chainsaw and a shotgun instead of lemons.  Next thing you know you are leading an army of reluctant humans against a skeleton Deadite army.  Other times life just gives you a couple cans of campbell soup, a wacky poster and the notion to build a Warhammer 40k army.  In this week's "Sunday Best" life did not bless them with a chainsaw or a shotgun but rather the concept of posting about the finer points of building an army in the world of Warhammer 40k.

Soup #1 - The Alternative Table: How to Pick Your 40k Army
DocBrown over at The Alternative Table was digging deep this week when he posted not one but several articles about the finer points of picking your 40k army.  He explores his inner thought process and explains the concepts that influence his decision making process when choosing an army.  He does stop there though as he goes back in for a second helping by dissecting majority of the armies in 40k.

Soup #2 - Miniature Tim: What Comes First, the List or the Models?
Miniature Tim is no stranger to wearing his Sunday best and this time around he proposes the intriguing question of "what comes first, the list or the models?  I know I have faced this question every time I start building a new army and constantly struggle with picking an answer to this age old question.  Tim cuts away the cellophane and breaks the boxes down for both sides of this debate.

Soup #3 - Quarantine World: "From your wounds,  the festers pour"
Ian may or may not pick his nose but he has picked building a list first when it comes to starting a new army.  Think of Ian as a high an architect though as he simply does not build a list but the blue print to one.  He shows you how each unit supports the weight of the army as a whole while explaining the each line in his army list to us.

In the end I have gather several cans of soup, a nose picker, a box destroyer and an architect.  These four ingredients along with a chainsaw and a shotgun add up to the weirdest "Sunday Best" and question my own sanity behind this madness.  What I do understand is that each of these blog authors caught my attention with their words as they each went over the finer points of building an army.  With the knowledge that I have garnered from each of them, I feel confident that I possess the necessary skills to defeat an Army of Darkness.

2 HoP Idol: Round #4: Help a Panda

International save bears day may not be for another four months but it is round four of the House of Paincakes Idol Contest.  With Giant Hotpanda's being listed as a critically endangered species, efforts are underway to save the HOTpanda from elimination.  The Chaos Manifesto proudly promotes HOTpanda conservation and supports other organization working to save the species.   One such organization is Robots against Donuts (RaD) who's goal is to reclaim back the jungles, that the HOTpanda calls home, from the evasive species known as Giant Donut.  You may not be a robot on a jungle trek, rounding up Giant Donuts but now is your chance to help save a bear, a Hotpanda bear that is, by visiting the House of Paincakes and voting for me.(HOTPanda).  While you are there be sure to check out my article on "The Art Termicide".

12 Sunday Best #16: Fantasy

Fantasy is a women's fragrance by Elizabeth Arden, and is endorsed by Britney Spears. The ad's tagline is "Everybody has one"...Ummm let's try this again.  "Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, or setting.  Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic is common.  Fantasy is generally distinguished from science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of (pseudo-)scientific and macabre themes, respectively, though there is a great deal of overlap between the three, all of which are subgenres of speculative fiction". (Wikipedia)  When it comes to table top gaming Games Workshops Warhammer Fantasy springs to mind.  It is indeed a world that uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element.  Today's "Sunday Best" each delve into this world by exploring the Ogre Kingdoms recent release.

After a few games under his belt with the Ogre Kingdoms new codex Adam-B feels the Ogre Hunter is an under utilized unit in the codex.  Not wanting to make a bold statement with nothing to back it up he goes over the Hunter in detail to examine his strengths and weaknesses.  From here he conjures up three viable ways that a Hunter can be employed that exploits his strengths and mitigates his weaknesses.

Ogre #2 - Wolves for the Wolf God: Ogre Kingdom (Slave) Giants are they Worth it?
Skarvald the Troll-faced could easily change his name to Skarvald the Ogre-faced as his is one hard blogger to look at.  His post this week on Ogre Kingdom Giants was pleasing to the eyes.  He explores three viable roles for the inclusion of a Giant while looking for ways that army as a whole can help exploit the Giant.  He makes for one hell of an argument and even managed to convince some of his followers to give one a try.

Ogre #3 - IMMATERIUM PRESS: Size Matters - Ogre Kingdoms First Impressions
Dan Byer leaves an Ogre sized footprint in the world of Blogging with his gut filling overview of the Ogre Kingdoms codex.  His words of wisdom are from that of an experienced Fantasy player and from that of an opposing general.  After the dust had settled he and his friend compared how the new army booked fared and examined the short falling of the army.  From here he leaves that Ogre sized footprint I mentioned by throwing up an all comers army list that address the concerns he saw his his opponents list while explaining each of his choices.

These three Ogres are but the tip of spear in terms of blog post about the new Ogre Kingdom army book.  I threw in my hat with a Haiku about Ogres earlier in the week while many others debated the finer points of the codex.  These three however dressed up in their Sunday Best and demonstrated that they each could wear Britney Spears' fragrance Fantasy with the elegance of woman.
