    • London Trip

      Thumper08

      So in less than a month I will be skipping across the Atlantic and staying in London for about 12-13 days for my history class. I am very excited and have already planned trips to the Imperial War Museum in London, Duxford, and the Churchill War Rooms. I will be taking a lot of pictures and if anyone has a special request (ie a particular aircraft, vehicle, etc) I will try my hardest to get you the pic. If anyone has been to London and can recommend some sights, pubs, or eateries I'll make sure to stop by.

    • My 15 minutes of fame

      Thumper08

      So I was interviewed today by KCCI out of Des Moines to talk about the Iowa National Guard tuition cut and the new bill that raised it back up. The other guy is Danny, my bets friend and another veteran in my fraternity. I got the call asking if I wanted to do it and an hour later I was being interviewed. Here is a link to the video. Yes, I am the fat one.

    • Lunch and other things

      7 years ago

      Thumper08

      So 82nd, my brother, and myself had lunch today at Buffalo Wild Wings. It went really well, I had a few beers and it was 45cent wings. It's always nice to meet people from the site in person. The last time I did was USNavySGT on Camp Victory. I think that's something that separates RvB from other sites in that I don't feel hesitant meeting members face to face. I don't feel like I am going to be chloroformed and thrown into a van (in reference to normal members, not MT or Tomii). Afterward me and my brother went to Best Buy to buy some gifts for my Mom's birthday but they didn't have what she wanted, but I did snap the complete Angel Beats anime. Something to watch over the next couple of days.

    • Finished my first army!

      7 years ago

      Thumper08

      So I finished painting my first Space Marine army. Since it was my first and I was building the marines from the Assault on Black reach set I did do the Ultramarines (sorry MT, Angry Marines are next). I will be posting pics here pretty soon. I also picked up a Razorback and am thinking about giving it the two lascannons but am not entirely sure.

      On a side note my brother and myself will be having lunch Wednesday with 82nd. It should be a good time and if anyone else is in the Detroit area feel free to send me a message.

    • Little Achievements

      7 years ago

      Thumper08

      So today I finished painting my first Dreadnought for Warhammer 40K and am finishing up my space marines. I had gotten the Assault on Black Reach set so I could play with a fraternity brother and we could learn together. Since I am never gonna play Orks (they just don't appeal to me) I just glued them together and called it a day. I am getting really anal about the Ultramarines though. I will hopefully post pics here pretty soon of my work.

      I also found some time to play Skyrim and now have all but one achievement (collect 15 daedric artifacts) because I screwed one up and am now one short. Nonetheless I am very happy I got the rest of the achievements and I am going to replay Oblivion (this time on the Xbox360 instead of my computer) for all those achievements.

    • The Old Republic is eating my life

      Thumper08

      I just got my early access to The Old Republic and I am loving every minute of it! I am playing a bounty hunter on The Shadowlands server. My name is ReconThumper if you want to party up. My only regret: it released during Finals week. Lame.

    • Hail to the Chief

      7 years ago

      Thumper08

      So the dining out went very well. I was surprised at how so many people forgot to bring their challenge coins, and also how the ones who did bring them forgot that I had a coin from the SecDef. Either way I drank a lot of free beer. We also had elections and I won the presidency on a joint ticket. What is weird is that at the meeting where I was elected I was sworn is as the new President, but the new officers don't take over till next semester. Since I was Vice President before and the new Vice hasn't taken over, I am officially both President and Vice of my fraternity. Let the start of my glorious monarchy begin!! If you don't like it I have three simple syllables for you: Fus Ro Dah

      Thanks for joining our group and I salute you. I have the deepest appreciation for those in the military, as I have a lot of family history in that, though I myself am not a member of the military. Again thanks.

      1- Star Wars Universe....and yes I was able to somehow create an army based off the Cadian Shock
      2 - Nope, same name, but instead of stealthy badass Raven Guard...we get a guy that will drop platoons of APC's, IFV's, Tanks, and heavily armored soldiers on any given battlefield on a moments notice from orbit if he has to and turned it into an art.
      3 - Plot - starts off as a relief effort, then becomes a quarantine, till all hell breaks loose and the main objective becomes survival as well as getting the hell off the planet.

      The black legion character was "Captain Slaughter" from a stop motion series by Miniwargaming called "Captain Slaughter's Rejects" about a Black Legion captain constantly hounded by failure as a result of the incompetance of he and his marines.

      Whats the name of the video?


      It was this video, but don't watch unless you know anything about Warhammer 40,000, otherwise you won't get it at all.

      I just got back from Helmund Province. Where are you headed to? I think AO Would be okay for OpSec. Send me a message and I'll write you a letter of gouge and gear that worked for me. Answer any questions too. I know Havoc1 is more of an operator than I and a lot of his suggestions worked for me.
