Wow, it has been FAR too long since I have added anything to the blog. Seemingly life comes around from time to time and keeps me from getting more involved with my hobby of gaming. Of course, I also have the hobby of hiking and backpacking that keeps me very busy as well. Spent fourteen hours a few weekends ago working on trails, killing honeysuckle, putting in the foundations for a footbridge, and other assorted trail maintenance duties. Amazingly enough, this is all volunteer work, and some hard manual labor at that, but I do enjoy getting a trail looking more like a trail and less like a honeysuckle jungle!

I plan on taking a hard look at the upcoming QRF sale that starts this Friday. They already give a slight discount when ordering three or more of the same pack code, and the sale will be an additional 10% discount. I could always add some additional West Germans (but why, I have plenty for Force on Force as it is), or more modern Germans with the cool G-36, some Seminole War figures (always had a hankering for that, and 15mm is far cheaper and requires less space than 28mm), or Spanish-American War (same reasoning, but historical battles are mostly lopsided affairs in terms of manpower), or some sci-fi (shades of Alien and Predator). Or, I am probably better off avoiding the QRF sale altogether and just work on what I already have!
And then, with the X-COM PC gaming, there is always the idea lurking in the back of my mind about gaming X-COM on the tabletop. It has been done before, take a look at LuckyJoe's Place, some cool X-COM work being done there!
And, while I still have the Anglo-Irish War in Miniature blog up, I have combined the posts into this blog, since I plan on using Force on Force for that period. Eventually I will need to do some sort of cleaning up with that...either keep that blog as it's own entity, or shut it down and add more Anglo-Irish war "stuff" here.
So, where to go from here? Reading some of The G Dog's blog has smitten me with the Tomorrow's War/Striker project again, so now it's a matter of sitting down and putting brush in paint, and paint on figure. My goal for May will be to get some gaming work completed. This month is difficult due to some other hiking commitments, but a few evenings here and there should be able to be dedicated to a few hours of cleaning, priming, and painting.
More coming, and I won't wait six months to update the blog!
