I decided to do something this weekend. I cancelled my World of Warcraft account. It still has til Tuesday, but for all intents and purposes, its gone. Ive done this a few times before, but usually to play a different MMO. This time, Im not starting a new game (though Fallen Earth is looking pretty...). I decided to drop it for a few reasons, and one of them actually has something to do with this blog. :)
Ive not done nearly as much painting over the past 2-3 years as Id done for a long while before that. The year I was at Osan I managed to get four armies painted, one of which was Skaven and another was Imperial Guard. Recently, I think all I have done of note was a small Space Marine force. Something of a difference there, huh?
This past Friday I managed to get the Columbia GW and had a fun game against an Imperial Guard player. Was his second run with the new book, but nearly all the flubs were off of the more confusing bits. I also picked up a Morathi model to use as a Sorceress in my Dark Elves. She is now assembled, and the Pegasus is nearly completely painted. Also, that Master and Spearmen I posted previously as nearly complete. I just need to paint the straps on the spears and base them, then Ill post pics. I also found those Black Templar terminators I had misplaced and did some work on them. Im going to be looking for some boxes of the old Dwarf models for a friend of Deo when I get home, and Im considering starting work again on the newer dwarfs that have been in limbo for quite a long while.
I think this is the most hobby stuff Ive done in a single weekend in months...
