Doom and Plauge

I beat the Christmas Neurax Worm level and I really enjoyed it. Took me about three tries but I got it. I enjoyed the level of difficulty. It was a bit of a challenge but not so hard that it was annoying like the Shadow Plague. I figured out the strategy in good time. I named my worm Bringer of Light as a reference to the Fear story where he's forced to be a good guy and a hero. I really enjoyed socking it to the governments of the world. Also this is the first one where no legality comes into play. Again I was a good guy this time and for once I really enjoyed it. The evil of no happiness and no holidays by law was just something that could not stand. Also seeing the Neurax Worm in a Santa Hat was great. I did get tons of screen caps of the funny news flashes but I have to get them off the play station still so I will have to post those later. Great replay value and I unlocked an achievement. I did not know there would be one. So next up is to try to beat the Black Death level. So I'll be playing as bacteria again. Anyway back to the Christmas worm. Bringer of Light was just the perfect name for that not only that it fits my story for Fear but Neurax Worm is a mind control creature and so is Fear being he's a neuron. It just fit my boy so well. I also loved we weren't fighting against Fear but against sadness and misery.

I got my Doom game today!! The board game that is. I LOVE this thing. I don't play these kinds of table top RPG's though. So I don't care about the board or the rule books or anything like that. I enjoy the art on the cards but may as well be in a foreign language to me. I only got it because I wanted the figures. Anyway check this out.

You get so many figures with this game. They are very well detailed for being so small. Nine Imps. That's great. I was worried about messing up the paint job on these. I do want to try to paint them and I suck at paints. But well with 9 I can paint maybe one or two. Only one Cyberdemon of course so I may not paint him. I don't trust myself for that but I have other plans for him that I hope will work out. More on that some other time. My only complaint is no Hell Knight. I would rather they not made so many of those zombie soldiers and given us at least one Hell Knight instead. I need my villain Bologoth so that was the only disappointing thing.

The three main characters of my story Flight of Fire. Leagrinn the female cacodemon, Balgaar the Cyberdemon and Pyranax the imp. I got these only only because these are my three fave species but also because to me these are my characters. If only Pyranax had the spines right hehe. If this whole sculpting thing goes right I'm thinking of making my own Pyranax figure. Too bad these aren't to scale with each other. Balgaar can hold Pyranax on his arm like a bird.

Here we have a Mancubus, a Pinkie (Bologoth's dog) and a Barron of Hell.

And Barron of Hell, Revanant and Imp. I don't know why but I find Revanants funny for some reason. In my story the one is the comic relief and he's constantly picked on by Bologoth.

So that's been my day today and it's been awesome.
