Imperial Bunker

Having a week off work, I decided to get ahead with my hobbying. I have a lot of assembled and primed stuff that's been waiting too long for me to pick up a brush. This morning, I managed to get a good head start on my first terrain piece.

Militarum Tempestus

What company produces a limited edition product without telling its customers about it? What companies creates miniatures and then puts the supporting rules in a book with a limited print run, meaning once the book is sold out, nobody will buy more miniatures?

Twenty-five years ago today, Nintendo released the Game Boy in Japan. Twenty-five years ago I was five years old. I have loved the two Game Boys I've owned very much, and I still do so today. In fact, they still work and I got to write about that recently.

Land Raider Complete

After months and months of work, I've finally completed my Land Raider Crusader. The very last steps like the detail work and weathering always take the longest amount of time, compared to the base colours. I'm pretty happy with the result, although there's definitely room for improvement.

The NSA & Heartbleed

Did the NSA know about Heartbleed? That's the question that seems to be on everyone's mind at the moment. At least it's on the mind of people who don't just assume the NSA knows everything. Well, according to Bloomberg, the NSA knew. But are they right?

Goats and Bleeding Hearts

The latest episode of c't uplink was released over the weekend. After missing a few episodes, it was time for me to come on and talk about Heartbleed (what else). But since I always bring the show down with gloomy topics, I also brought something fun for a change.
