A new banner, and a lot of half finished stuff.

You may have noticed that I changed the blog banner a little. I think changing things up once or twice a year are a good way to keep things fresh on the blog. I also find it a useful distraction when I'm not getting other things done and that fact is stressing me out.

If you've ever wondered how I arrive at the images I choose to put in the banner the selection criteria is quite simple. They are all images used in the top ten posts on this very blog. As you can I've had a slight shift in what is popular.

As for blogging I am still having a lot of trouble keeping up. Some of you may have noticed my newest method. I wait until your blog reaches a critical mass of unread posts and then read them all and comment on one. It's a sucky way to manage things, but it's the best I can manage for now. Sorry if you've written some gold that I have missed or passed on.

As for the challenge, I'm in the final detailing on the Plastic orcs. My special mix of Raw Umber, Burnt Umber and Black Ink washes makes them look nice and grungy. I did finally receive my inks from Dick Blick and I will report on those shortly. The Gobbo's are the same, but I've gotten flesh done on some of the Gob Bows. And I painted some of the clothing on the Treyine guys I've decided to slip into the challenge, a lot of red. It seems to be my favorite color.

I also updated the figures finished page and need to add to the games played as we did finally finish Eldritch Horror and played a game of Munchkin Deluxe.

    1. Thanks Andrew. Yeah, my blogging is very cyclic as it is. I just feel like I should be trying harder to give followers the content they deserve.

  2. The Challenge always proves difficult for me, I've got a backlog of around 12 posts, with this new job and life in general I just can't find the time to get things posted. Problems problem. Like the new banner, but I see Maggie (shitface) Thatcher still must be in your top 10, get rid of the biatch she offends me to my very soul! he he!

    1. Hi Ray, yes the challenge plus real life is challenging my meager organizational skills. Yes that post is still in the top ten. If it's any consolation it's a picture of Meryl Streep dressed up as Thatcher. As it was just a joke aimed at you I'll probably take it out as it definitely has lost its freshness. And I'm not really a supporter of hers or her pal Reagan over here for that matter.

  3. My painting has slowed down too - (screeching halt?), but not a Challenger, so no worries ;) Best to you though, Sean!

  4. Thanks Dean. My overall output is actually increasing. I'm just finding it difficult to put in the consistent time I need to really crank things out. So I just fiddle about with regiments until I'm forced to complete something for a themed challenge.

  5. I'm having trouble keeping up with all the blogs of interest as well - there's just too much going on. My "plan" is slightly different from yours (and it isn't really a plan, either): I read all the posts, but don't necessarily comment as much as I'd like :-( . Doesn't mean that I'm not interested, though!

    1. Hi Hugh. I can barely read all of them and the Two Hour Wargames Forums have exploded as well. So right now it is crisis management. I also am not commenting as much because I would be doing quite a bit of thread necromancy.
