Where have you been hiding?

Over the first half of this year I was really proud of my efforts to keep this blog updated.  I was getting in at least one post a month and sometimes more.  But suddenly, summer hit and I found myself with less time to update things here.  I was doing stuff, just nothing I had the time to post about.  But as we enter fall it's time to get this blog back on schedule and for me to get my hobby mojo back.

In the meantime, here are a few of the things I've been up to these past couple of months.

I don't play Eldar but when they new codex was released I was really intriqued by the new models, especially the Wraithguard and the Wraithknight.  My local GW store was running a painting competition with a Wraith theme and I was talked into entering.  Not wanting to drop $100+ on a Wraithknight I went for the new Wraithguard kit.
This is the first new GW plastic kit I've assembled and I was amazed at the quality and the versatility of the kit.  You can very easily create different poses with no need of conversion.  I chose a basing theme that matched my Imperial Guard army I'm planning with the thought that I could do an Eldar ally contingent for my future army.

Stay tuned for more recaps of my summer hobby projects AND a preview of my new Lord of the Rings armies for Bilbo's Birthday Bash in a few weeks.
