More 15mm 40k Space orc(y) goodness. Squiggoth WIP

DSCF3594

To carry on with my 15mm space orc lot, I thought I’d share my latest addition to them, my squiggoth. It’s a repurposed scotia-grendel 28mm warbeast (a Kev adams sculpt I think) that I had knocking around. With an added howdah and a large cannon (plus a few random snotlings as 15mm grots for crew, it’s shaping up nicely.

There’s still a bit left to do, a highlight here and there, a few bits to add and a banner or two, and of course the basing to do before I’ll call it a day and stop, but it does mean that slowly, but surely my orc force is getting there.

I’ll admit that I’m not the greatest painter, but one still has to keep their hand in it so to speak. I the type that will always be faffing until the end of time, trying to add to stuff in order to get a better finish. I’ll also hazard a guess, that I’m not the only one!

Mars Discovery: Curiosity Rover’s ‘Earth-Shaking’ Find Downplayed By NASA.

So, in the event of sounding like the news of the Mars rover‘s recent find is going to be a game changer, NASA are now saying that they didn’t mean anything of the sort.

With the press conference scheduled in the next couple of days, they seem keen to suggest that this statement was just meant as the whole mission will go down in the history book, rather than they have discovered organic molecules or even evidence of past life.

The conspiracy nuts out there will no doubt be citing the US government covering up this evidence or something similar.

Maybe they might be right this time, it does seem like they were unhappy that the team spilled the beans about what they found as their official statement seems a little suspect in light of the original news.

I think we all know that there was probably some kind of life there once, I think that they are just putting off the eventual truth that man is foolish for thinking we are unique in the universe. Life is probably a given pretty much anywhere that the right conditions exist or have existed.

We’ll see what they say in a few days.
