Quick and Dirty post Thanksgiving Update

Hi All,

Hope you had a joyous Thanksgiving, if you celebrated, and have been as productive as you want to be hobby wise.

I have been somewhat busy for me, priming the figures for my next battle for the Talomir Tales campaign. Here are a few pictures.






The figures are a mix of Airfix, HaT, MiniArt, Strelets and Zvezda. I should be prepping figures for the Painting Challenge but I commited to playing the game first and I really want to play it out with painted figures. If anything it's helping me establish a rhythm and get back in the habit of painting daily.

You may have noticed that I added some more image links to the right. I added one each for Tabletop Gaming Central, Bloggers for Charity, and Analogue Hobbies. All sites that I have recently become associated with one way or another. I want to give special mention to Tabletop Gaming Central as I only recently submitted my blog to them for listing and they put me on quickly and then Gavin emailed me to welcome me and let me know I was on board. As you know, I am a fan of the personal touch and try my best to foster that type of connection through my blog.

I also want to share the news that Two Hour Wargames has extended their Black Friday sale to Sunday. Get 20% off your total order you can read about it here.

On a final note I am very thankful that my mother is okay. On Wednesday evening she went out for a walk with my kids and fell in the street. We were worried that she may have broken her hip. After a few hours in the E.R. we were released with a prescription for painkillers. Her Thanksgiving was bedridden, but I'm happy to say that today she is off the heavy painkillers and was able to walk up and down the stairs. I was pretty upset about it but everything seems to be okay now, just scrapes and bruises.

  1. Good news with your mom. Hope she gets well soon, especially since Christmas is near.
    TGC I didn't now until now. Exactly the thing I like so I just went there and also applied :)
    And oh my, you all have a painting output which is insane. Wish I could paint one figure a month, in this time you paint whole units :D

    1. Thanks Paradox0n. My output is sporadic at best and I seem to be great at getting things started and half done, but not finished. Fingers crossed.

    1. Hi Michael, thanks. Yes, I'm particularly happy that she wasn't seriously hurt. I am still slightly worried about how frail my parents seem to be getting, but I guess it is inevitable.

  3. I't very good to hear everything went well, all the best for you and your dear mum.
    An interesting painting project you have there - it has been some time with 1:72 for me, but some of these days I'll sure think about it again - the proportions and poses are so much more lifelike than in 28mm...

    1. Thanks Sir Tobi. I made the decision to go with 1/72 to get back into the hobby, but am slowly being drawn back to 28mm.
