Yikes, not a lot of blogging lately! Rest assured that I'm still alive and well. The last 3-4 weeks have been consumed by my real life. A layoff transpired at my workplace (I'm still gainfully employed) which caused a big ruckus, along with a plumbing fail and some other kid/house related things that required significant time investment from me. Anyways, enough of that!
Funny enough, in addition to all that, I had a strange desire to go back and rewatch all of "The Guild" - which I did. It reminded me of one of the best Vork quotes there is ...
If you have not watched The Guild - you should. I'm not an online gamer by any means (I barely play any games on a computer/console), but being a gamer I can relate and it is funny. Anyways ...
I started into some wargaming spring cleaning and stumbled upon some stuff that has distracted me ... squirrel! My Zulu war efforts had to be pushed out until the year end due to painting schedules and such. Right now my mind has shifted to what to bring to KublaCon. I think it will be Bolt Action WW2 ... maybe modern ... maybe Muskets & Tomahawks ... not sure yet --- I don't have much more time to submit a game though so I'll decide very soon. I have been wanting to play a M&T game ... that is going to happen soon regardless of other plans :-)
I need to get my butt in gear on Omaha Beach ... I've decided I'll contract out the beach obstacles and landing craft to one of my local guys here ... after that it is just a matter of me building the two main bunkers.
My distraction - well, there will be a separate post about that in the next day or so ... or maybe later today ... hummm.
I think I may also post up some things I want to sell ... cleaning out the cupboards I've discovered lots of stuff I don't need or will just never get around to doing. E.g. I have a crapload of Warlord Roman's that I don't need (never really have been that into ancients as a period).
Ok, so getting back in the saddle now ... and I've been painting stuff (another reason I've not been blogging). I do want to start doing some videos again and some posts of how to paint/do certain effects and such.
For those of you who continue to "tune in" --- thank you!
