Dreamforge Games Levithan Crusader Kickstarter

Well, someone finally came up with a Kickstarter project I liked enough to back -  Mark at Dreamforge Games is running a Kickstarter that will allow him to purchase new tooling that will allow him to produce his Levithan Crusader model with better quality at a lower price point.

I've been drooling over the Leviathan model since I first saw it last year, but couldn't bring myself to drop almost $400 on one (although they look like they're worth every penny).  Now's your chance to help an up-and-coming company, and to score an awesome model for a fraction of the cost.

Adepticon Ho!

Getting ready to head out in a little while with lars4life to Adepticon!  I will be updating my Twitter feed throughout the weekend, and will post a complete recap upon my return.  Send me a message on Twitter if you're going to the convention and want to meet up for food/drinks, or just to say hi!

Interesting News..., I've never actually visited an "official" GW store - there aren't any in my state, only independent retailers.  But while catching up on blogs last night, the guys at 40K Origins mentioned that there will soon be a GW store in my town.  While I'm interested, my main concerns are that this store is on the extreme opposite side of town from me (probably a ~40 minute drive), and that this location is tiny - there's no way there's gonna be more than 1 or 2 tables there.  I'm also concerned with how this is going to affect GW's support of the independent stores that I frequent.  Still, I'm sure I'll check it out when it opens...

Monday, January 30, 2012 anyway, where was I?

Hello all -

      It's no secret that I have a lot of hobbies, and it's not unusual for my involvment in any one of them to come or go for a few months.  Well, shortly before the holidays last year, I got the urge to do some PC gaming - and, somehow, this showed up at my doorstep:

... a couple weeks later, this happened:

... and then, THIS happened:

... all of that was enough to make me like

And if all that, wasn't enough, a couple of weeks before Christmas I had surgery - nothing major, but enough to put me out of commission physically for a month.  And, of top of that, this was one of my Christmas presents from my wife:

That's Ripley - she's a lot bigger now, and quite a handful.  So, needless to say, between marathon PC gaming sessions, being physically wrecked, and taking care of a new puppy, the blog fell by the wayside.  Nevertheless, I have returned and plan to have things back an running at full steam shortly.  Quick pertinent stuff I want to get out there:

- Lars4life & I will be attending Adepticon 2012! Drop us a line if you're going and want to hang out!

- A BIG kitbash project is in the works as the final piece for my Ork army.

-GenCon 2012 badges were purchased tonight!

Lots more stuff is coming, give me a few days to sort through my pics and put things together...
