Things are still unsettled but an end date is upon us and I think I should be all set up by the end of November. I’ve never been a fan of nomadic living (not that I’ve ever really done it) and so it’ll be good to start rooting down again. I mentioned in my last post that Steve Garcia was hosting a marathon painting class and since I had some time today, I wanted to share a bit about the experience.

With my living situation still in flux, I’ve had to get a little creative in how I get in my hobby time. I was able to set up my airbrush in the apartment garage and figured out how to make that work in 95 degree heat. The rest (painting station, crafting area, etc) is just kind of “where I can fit it for easy setup and take-down.” In all of this, the Bromad Academy was running a painting contest that I was very interested in. The theme for the quarter was “Conversions” and I had been kicking around a simple idea for a while. This contest was the catalyst giving me the push I needed.
As this transition to life in Texas stretches onward, I’ve struggled to work on anything new. Most of my gaming and hobby time has grind to a halt as we wait for our house to finish up and most of my stuff stuck in storage. There are some signs of light at the end of the tunnel as things look to close in the next couple months. Still a ways to go but soon we’ll measure the time in weeks and days instead of vague months. That being said, I did have some projects I finished up right before the move and was able to carve out some time today to showcase them properly.
My posts recently have dropped off of late but I’m still kicking around. We’re in the process of a complicated and long move which has left little time to post. Things are going well, just very busy and most of my game/hobby material are packed up. I did, however keep some “essentials” out and ready, including my Infinity figures, which allowed me to get in a game near my new locale down in south Texas.
Back on to more painting, I picked up my Hǎidào units from Yu Jing and finished them off. I find that it is slow going but the main take away is that I’m pushing through and getting figures done. These two complete the Hǎidào trio as I finished up my Sniper earlier last year.
In the middle of last year, I was pretty excited about Infinity TAGs (the large mechs of the Infinity Universe). I went so far as to put them all up in a running catalog post (which I recently updated with some of the missing pics). Flash forward to earlier today and Corvus Belli announced a teaser for their next board game venture:
You, know, the Chinese one. Less than a week away and all. Like the groundhog that came out only to squint in the oppressive light and wonder just what the hell he’s been doing, I have emerged from hibernation to catch up. It has been a little while since I posted but it hasn’t been all mai tais and hoop skirts. The new year brought a new role at work and some other life changes (all good-ish) that will disrupt my hobby and gaming time a bit more before it is all over. In the meantime, we can catch up.
