I'm not dead yet...

Just horribly busy. Sorry for the lack of updates recently. I've just been swamped and haven't had much hobby time at all. Perhaps once the holidays are over, I'll be able to get into the swing of things.

There has been some movement. My wife secured me an organizer unit that is basically a wooden version of the plastic container I bought a few months ago. She even supplied me with the plastic bins to go in it. The plan is to put as much as the rank and file models into those bins and store them in my hobby garage area. That will allow my vast shelf space in my office to be used for large models that don't fit in nicely.

Also on the docket is a purchase for a large amount of magnets so that I can put it on all of my figs. Which is a lot. So that will be done in stages. First up will be the fantasy armies that I use for Kings of War. After that, I'll start on my 40K armies.

Oh, I did buy the new starter for Gates of Antares. Been reading the book some...but again, not a whole lot of time towards it. So no review in the near future I'm afraid. But down the line somewhere...I can see that.

I almost played in a flames of war tournament, but my wife scheduled an out of town trip on the same weekend.

I'm also still awaiting my abyssal army from Mantic. Getting pretty near the end of November and no word yet. They need to get in gear.

I will say that I've been playing Vermintide on my PC quite a bit. That is very time consuming. We are talking about 30 minutes for a single run, with maybe a 60-70% chance of success. Fun game, but they need a lot of work on reward balancing. Still, it is fun to play with my friends, so that will stay on the radar for a while.

Star Wars battlefront is out, and I have played a few games, but quite frankly, I'm a bit tired. I need to be on my A game to play that and right now, I'm somewhere on the E to F level.

Mostly that is due to the weather. You see it is cold outside...which means it is colder inside. Which means one of my cats is constantly sleeping on me at night because she refuses to keep her sweaters on. So I don't sleep as well. Darn cat.

And that is basically it. I did try to get some friends together for D&D about a month or two ago, but just couldn't grab enough of them. I really miss that game. Maybe one day.
