Clear Coat still drying on these

But I thought I would share anyway. Please forgive the hasty and not too-well lit photos. I'm excited that I have been making progress on some projects.

A Paneuropean "Huscarl" (Mk. V) OGRE
(Steve Jackson Games, Plastic)

German, it calls itself "Das Schwarzeritter" - The Black Knight
Why? Because it's a massive unstoppable engine of war. It can call itself whatever it wants.

Another Paneuropean "Legionnaire", this one Neo-Soviet.
KMSR-1917, aka "Kommisar"

Been quiet

Been quiet around here lately. I actually have been doing stuff. Played a game of Twilight Struggle that I bought at GenCon. It's fun!

Been doing some painting, but no photos yet. Promise I will get something posted soon-ish.

Curious as to how many people still follow this (or any) blog actively. I know I go through cycles of following and ignoring. Twitter has become more my go to for online game stuff.

So let me know if you're still out there, please, by commenting.

Made it home from GenCon 2018

   Wow, what a trip. Almost 3,300 miles by car. Saw tons of neat stuff, had a great convention. Best part was spending most of that time with my 19-year-old son.

   Dane and I are on the road starting today, driving 16 hours to Indianapolis for the legendary GenCon 2018. It's a first for both of us (at this convention).

   Plus, afterwards, we are driving up to Toronto, then Buffalo (for hot wings), then Cleveland (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), and then home.

   He's already working on the playlist. I asked if he would rather drive or fly, he said "Dad, the best part of the last time we went to Historicon [2017] was the road trip. Let's drive." Yeah, my 19-year-old said that. Done. Road trip. By the time we get to Indy, the back seat is gonna look like a couple of 9-year-olds were given $100 and no supervision at the convenience store.

I am so looking forward to it. And, as much as I am looking forward to the convention, the best part will be the road trip with my son.
