My Desk

Just a picture of my workspace.

I’ve got all my supplies in the shelf on the left.  Paints are on the right.  I’ve got a small natural light lamp and a nice little wet palette made out of a plastic sandwich box.  Works in progress sit on the upper shelf, and my showcase pieces (along with some Legos and a fishing trophy) sit on the top,  The desk also doubles as my computer/gaming desk.  And like any flat surface in our house, the areas that I was too slow to claim have become home to my wife’s knitting and my kids’ toys 😀

I can haz dog!

So my wife has wanted a dog for a long time now.  Well a friend of hers had a a Welsh Corgi that they just didn’t have time for, so we decided to take it for a test run tonight.  Long story short, my wife loved the dog, and it wasn’t too crazy hyper so I decided that we could keep it.  The cats aren’t terribly thrilled, but Teo is still the boss, and the dog is well aware of this fact.

Now presenting, Ein!

New Banner and Theme!

Thanks to my sister for the new banner at the top of the page.  The old theme didn’t support custom image headers, so I had to find a new one.


I picked up some pumpkins yesterday and my wife and I carved them up yesterday.  I also bought two of the mini-pumpkins to decorate for our kids.  Here are the results…



My wife’s:

Here they are in the light with my son’s little pumpkin in front (my daughter’s hasn’t been decorated quite yet).

Still here… just busy.

I’m still around, but I just haven’t had any time to dedicate to painting.  I’ve been playing a fair amount of World of Warcraft lately, actually.  I’ve found that the sound of a computer fan is quite soothing to a 4-week-old baby at 2am when she decides that she doesn’t want to sleep.

Anyways, I just wanted to update everyone on things, and let you know that with winter quickly approaching (it actually snowed here last week) I’m sure that Ryan and I will start playing games more regularly again soon.


I’ve been a little distracted from painting and playing Warhammer lately, and this is why:

101st Post!

I can’t believe I’ve written 100+ posts.

Thank you to everyone who enjoys this blog.  I’ve worked hard and it really brings another level of enjoyment to the game.  Also, knowing that there are people out there that do read this just pushes me more to paint and update it consistently.

Thanks and here’s to another hundred.

Happy 4th!

Have a great 4th of July for everyone in the US.  For everyone outside of the US, have a great weekend.

I will be out for the weekend, but I will be back and have plenty of time for more painting next week.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there.

I hope you’re having a great day.

Going Fishing

I know things have been pretty slow around here lately. I was under the weather last week, and that combined with some new video games meant that my painting progress suffered. Now I’ll be out on a fishing trip for the next few days, but starting next week I will be working hard to get some conversions ready for the tournament at the end of June. Stay tuned.
