I've got ages until BOYL2015, it's fine.

Sorry, what's that you say? Two weeks? AHHHHHHHHHHHH SHI.............................

OK, I've taken my eye off the ball, looking after Lil' Snickit (my first born) distracted me from doing anything gaming since he's been born.

I've actually spent a fair bit of time reading Dreamwave Transformers comics on my iPad and then that lead me to the Regenerain One stuff they did which brought me full circle to re-reading the U.S. orginal comics. When I was a kid I was obsessed with Transformers and bought the U.K. comic regularly and have enjoyed seeing how the U.K. stories worked themselves into the much smaller U.S. output. Basically the U.K. comic was weekly as opposed to the monthly U.S. version so they had to write a lot of extra stories but had to try and make these fit with the U.S. continuity. Sometimes this worked, sometimes not so much with characters still walking around in the U.K. continuity that were dead in the U.S. version.

Anyhow, that was a distraction - see, I even got distracted writing my blog by going off at a tangent talking about it!

So, I have about two weeks to get something, anything, new done. To be fair I did plan for this eventuality. I managed to pump out a stupidly huge amount of painted minis in early 2015 so I can't grumble too much, I probably painted more in those few weeks than I've painted in a year previously. I don't think I'm going to manage anything this week or next but the week after (the build up to the event) the other half is taking Lil' Snickit away to see his Grandparents. So, in the week before I want to add something to my speed painted High Elves and maybe an extra Escher or two. I'd dearly love to finally get my Skaven's shields into a respectable state but I've needed to do this for the last few years and not managed it, time to cross my whiskers and hope..........................


  1. Kids certainly have a way of stealing your time!

    1. Indeed, and whilst I wouldn't change it for the world, it'd be nice to crowbar in some painting/modelling/gaming time =P

  2. Dude so glad to see you back. Missed our little tet a tets regarding those who shall inherit.
    I'm so happy for you and Mrs Snickit, my wife and I have been trying forever and just did the IVF.
    Anyway I'm off subject; glad to see you back, glad to see your high elves coming along further.
    I've gone through a bit of a run on my blog pls stop by and let me know what you think, under 50 models to go and I'm finished with the rats.....for now.

    1. Thanks Ratty Mate!

      I'll have a check out of your stuff when I get another reading break from Lil' Snickit.

      Good luck with the IVF, I really do hope you get a positive result soon, it totally changes your world!

  3. One day your first born will be owning you on the wargaming table. :)

    1. And I'll be one proud Walord when that day comes.

      To be honest, he probably won't need to try that hard, my defeats column is definitely bigger than my victories one..................
