Going Into Hibernation

We have begun cleaning clutter up around the house in order to prepare it for viewing by possible buyers. According to my wife, most of my precious hobby is clutter, so it is being boxed up and hidden away. I prefer to think of them as entering carboard chrysalises, to emerge as beautiful armies at their new home. Or something like that. I chunked my old, well-worn 1'x2' flat terrain boards into the trash, as I mostly use a ground cloth anymore, and plan on making nice 2' square pieces at the new place. I also threw a way a bunch of old styrofoam pieces-- I am big on ideas but low on productivity, a sure way to accumulate a bunch of trash.

Happy Birthday to Me!

I am 35 years young today. Scored some Victory By Any Means books, some 15mm BH/OG Napoleonic Bavarians and W├╝rttemburgers, and a new carrying bag for my pipes. Yay!
It currently looks like we'll be closing on the new house at the end of June. The home inspection went really well. My primary gaming area will be about 22' x 16'. Nice! But that's not all, folks. There will be an upstairs finished attic annex directly off that room that is 10' x 15', and has lots of closet/attic storage space. I'm thinking wargames downstair, RPGs upstairs. Sweet. I'm thinking about soliciting designs on this site, with some cash prizes. Stay tuned!

Barbarians Completed

In some sort of record, I finished the entire 6mm HotT Barbarians army in a weekend.

Where Have I Been?

Well, I cut my thumb badly and was unable to paint, I've been to Chicago on business, coaching both my son's and my daughter's soccer teams, had my in-laws in for a couple of weeks, and it looks like I'm about to buy a new house. In other words, I have been busy. On the upside, though, my thumb is better and I've just finished a pack of 15mm OG French Hussars, soccer season ends Saturday, and the new house will have lots of gaming space, so things could be worse!
