If you're wondering:
- I'm alive.
- I'm mostly well.
- I'm still gaming.
This blog has languished, like many (if not most) others. I'm sorry about that, for those of you who are still out there checking in on blogs.
I've actually been very busy with gaming, especially painting. I got back into Warhammer 40K just in time to have them change editions on me. But still, I have painted dozens of Warhammer minis this year, and will continue to do more.
I'm in two online games these days, one on Mondays where we are currently playing Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, 4th Ed., and one on alternate Thursdays, where we are playing Starfinder. I am the GM for the WFRP game, and a PC in the Starfinder.
My historical gaming has expanded some as well, especially in Flames of War 4. Lots of Germans painted up, and working on (kind of half-heartedly) British Airborne. I even work on my USMC troops sometimes (though they are stuck in FOW3).
I have a LOT of photos of stuff I have painted this year. I will try to get some of them uploaded soon.
Take care, ladies and gents.
