Completed Stormwall

Last but not least for our marathon update tonight... the Stormwall.
He was fun to paint, but I wouldn't relish doing another one. He hasn't seen the table yet, as I just finished him tonight, but I look forward to seeing what kind of damage he can dish out. Looking forward to trying him with pHaley first and then pStryker... we shall see... now pics!

Circle Orboros Updates: Lots and lots of pics

Other than two diversions into Cygnar land (ahem... Stormwall...) My painting has been focused entirely on my Circle Orboros. Here's a sample of the latest stuff.

My forseeable future of painting is still going to be wrapped up in Circle as well. I'm enjoying everything about the faction right now, from painting to playing, so look for some more stuff shortly.

My New Nerd Den

Greetings and salutations everyone! Been a while. As I said last time, life has been a bit intense. With the impending arrival of my daughter it seems that there's always a lot to do. Hobbying has still been a huge part of my time, but photographing that hobbying and writing about it on the old interwebs just hasn't taken precendence.
Until tonight.
This is one of three blog updates to bring things back up to speed. I've been painting fiendishly, bringing this year's model count up to 62 as of tonight. Included in that 62 is a battle engine and collosal, so I'm pretty proud of that accomplishment. I also wracked up my first ever Steamroller Tournament win last week at Crit Hit Games.
One of the biggest changes in my hobbying has been my work space. For years I've had a room that was simply "storage" for all my hobby stuff, terrain, models, shipping materials, old magazines, books, comics, pirate treasure, the odd lost sock, and maybe Jimmy Hoffa. With Baby-9 on the way, my wife and I decided that it was time to reclaim that room and make it liveable, and in the future, secure from toddler invasion.
So after the summoning of many arcane rites, I brought all of my nerdiness together into one place. I sold a ton of stuff on ebay, gave away a ton more, but soon consolidated everything into the greatest nerd den of all time...
Pic one. All of the warhammer fantasy armies that will never get played still look good on display. The couch is a recliner, perfect reading spot and...
it's facing my nerd altar. Pathfinder stuff? check. Talisman? Check. All Warmachine and Hordes books? Check. Blu Ray player and Star Wars Themed xbox? check. Other board games? 40k books? ipad? = Perfection. The cool thing is that the furniature and the TV and the blu ray were all financed through my ebay sales. No complaints from the wife and one happy D-9.

My painting station is set up in the other corner of the room with plenty of room to work and extra storage.
And finally the closet has most of my armies bagged up and in foam as well as my Dragon magazine collection (you can't see it in the pic.)

So the den has been finished for over a month now and I have to say it was a great idea. The game tables and terrain are stored in another closet in the basement, so I can still host up to three games of Warmahordes in the basement.

Ok, so post one down. Get ready for post two, in which in the intepid blogger shows you, the rapt audience, all of the progress he has made on his Circle Orboros army in the last several months.
