Proof of Life!

It may not have escaped the attention of the more regular visitors to this humble weblog that things have been a little quite of late.  Rest assured there are not great dilemmas, just the day job going through an incredibly busy and demanding passage at the moment.  In order to maintain some semblance of work/hobby balance something had to give and I am afraid that was the time given to blogging.  That said it is very much my intention to return, particularly with 'Zomtober' and 'Dinovember' on the horizon; I find that these theme months often provide the impetus to pick up a brush again. 

Speaking of brushes, I haven't painted anything for over a month, but that is not to say that there hasn't been plenty of hobby time.  The pictures below will give you a clue as to what has been going on in a spare room far, far away!  So I am afraid to say that for the time being '28mm Victorian Warfare' will be taking a small break, but normal service will resumer shortly.

  1. No worries about posting, Michael. Take your time and you know you've got a loyal group of followers no matter how long between posts - written by one who disappeared from the blogosphere himself for quite some time! :)

    1. I just couldn't resist Dave, Star Wars was such a important part of my childhood that when I heard it could be adapted for solo play I was in!

  13. I know the feeling about life getting on top of things. At least you've managed to get some gaming in... the extent of mine has been a few Cards Against Humanity sessions at work :/

    Looking forward to Zomtober, as always!

  14. Its WONDERFUL to see you so entrenched in this game, even though you are busy and have so little time at the moment. The beauty of the game is: a) it doesnt take up much space, and b) can be left mid game and picked up and move here a move there at leisure. I LOVE that you are playing with the pieces unpainted. So many just wait and wait and wont touch a game until its all painted and of course, enthusiasm wanes and the thing never gets played. Looks marvellous anyway. Good luck with it Michael. And dont worry, we`ll all be here when you have time again xx

    1. As soon as Steve took the time to explain how it could be adapted for solo play, I was in. Then I saw just how amazing the miniatures were and I couldn't stop cracking on with the scenarios.

  18. Sounds very familiar - we all go through spells like this, I think. Don't worry about it, just do what you feel like, when you feel like it. After all, if it ain't fun then why are we doing hobby stuff?
