Random Updates: Aaaand I'm Back... Again...

So not much in the world of gaming for me for... how long has it been?  Wow, months now I think.  In fact looking back at my posts on the blog and things have been somewhat erratic about the past six months now.  There were a couple of months of very intensive gaming as we found a friendly local gaming store followed by a few months of much less after we found out that the local gaming store wasn't quite so friendly after all.

On the upside, we have added a number of games to our gaming collection which we've been having a lot of fun with lately.  I've also made some headway at breaking my miniature slump that started back in May.  At that time I had been working on assembling a Colonial/Victorian Science Fiction British army.  While I was making solid progress with this I was blindsided contradictory force composition requirements ("Try to be historically accurate but you can have lasers."  WTF?!?) and a total lack of interest in any sort of play testing to make the overall gaming experience better.  Thankfully an old friend of mine has recently renewed my interest in Malifaux so I've been working on completing the miniatures that I already have as can be seen with my post about my Ortega crew.  Sonnia Criid's crew is still also almost done (just one more Witchling to base) along with all but my Peacekeeper for my Guild supporting models.  Of course this would mean that my Malifaux minis are almost all painted so of course that means its time to pick up some more; enter Lady Justice!  Her's is the first of new Wyrd plastics that I've purchased and they look really impressive though really fiddly (and I thought that the Mobile Infantry from Mongoose were tricky!).

Thankfully all of this gives me a lot to post about, and now that I've finished playing the original Mass Effect for the first time I have some free time on my weekends again!  Huzzah!  Now I just need to start typing again and then slowly but surely there will be some new content here.  In the meantime, I've also started an Instagram account which I've been slightly more regular about updating lately (click and post... just makes life easier sometimes) so you can also check things out there.  In the meantime, expect more coming here on the blog soon.  Until next time...
