Has it really been two years since Hurricane Ike ripped through Galveston County like a starving great white shark through a bunch of baby seals?
The answer, of course, is "yes." Tempus fugit, as they say. Not that Ike has anything to do with the rest of this post, but still...
Speaking of tempus fugiting, I ran out of month in August for my painting projects. Not an epic fail, but certainly not a goal reached month. Call it about 70%.
And September has been very dry so far, paint and game wise. However, I am looking forward to Game Saturday this weekend, and my buddy Jim is finally coming home in two weeks after a two-year deployment! Hooray! We're already talking about getting some D&D going or something. We have decided that the boys really are not ready for a more modern, tactical type RPG like Twilight 2000. Greyson might manage it, but Dane just wants to blast stuff, and that kind of thing ends up with you making a new character every week.
Also, this month I should be receiving my copy of the new Renaissance rules from Fields of Glory (Osprey Publishing). Looking forward to that, although it means yet another project. I am torn between Thirty Years War Imperials (Catholic forces) and Gustavus Adolphus' Swedes for the first armies in that project. Can you tell I have been reading Eric Flint's 163x series of books?
