Boring Update

Been busy with "real" work, the kind I actually get paid money to do. Aside from getting paid, one of the great things about working is that I have access to all sorts of things that would otherwise wind up in a dumpster/skid bin. Really useful pieces of styrofoam, odd bits of plastic and almost unlimited supplies of cardboard which is can be used to mount unpainted figures so I can spray prime them in large groups.
  Not much gaming going on at the moment, but I do expect to host a WW2 game using the TFL "Chain of Command" rules in mid February. Stay tuned for a thrilling AAR of that game.

So we said goodbye to 2013 and welcomed 2014. For me, 2013 wasn't a bad year, just one that seemed to pass very quickly.  This year I hope to paint more figures, keep in touch more often with friends and of course, try to lose about 15 pounds.
Here was the entire family on New Year's Day. Included are my wife, my four kids and their partners and the five grandkids, including Vera, Chuck and Dave.
A good sign for the future, some of the grandsons are showing interest in my miniatures, especially my recent efforts, the Fourteenth Brooklyn in 28mm
