Comic Con San Diego was great. I met James Purefoy (Solomon Kane), Thomas Jane (Punisher), and most awesomely, Edward James Olmos (Castillo from Miami Vice & Admiral William Adama from Battlestar Galactica)!!! That was July.
August saw me & Babydoll buying a sweet house with a BASEMENT!!! Yes! My own Batcave....
September was the move into the new house and preparation for the Wedding. We had 3 weeks between the time we moved in and the date of the wedding.
October 3rd was the most perfect day of my life. Mrs. Babydoll & I were married and enjoyed the company of our closest friends and family. It was awesome!
We then went on our honeymoon and had an absolute blast. Now we're both back to work and still not entirely unpacked. I'm hoping that tomorrow I can get my hobby room unpacked.
And Mrs. Babydoll sprung a new Drumset on me as well!!! So now I'll be dividing my time between painting, drumming, and my husbandly duties.
I love my life.
I'll post pics when we get them.

It's 108 degrees in Lodi right now, and I'm friggin hot. The air conditioner is doing its part, as is my cold Pepsi, and I'm realizing that I haven't updated this thing in over a month.
My bad, I've just been pre-occupied with our new D&D campaign. Me & Dave, Mike, Jim, Drew & the other Bob are havin' a blast with our new 4E campaign. We're all invested in the process & having a great time.
Our cast of heroes is as follows:
Jagger Kilmane, Father of Sorrows -half-orc fighter (me)
Quan Bai, Battleworn Apostate - half-orc monk (Mike)
Jotan Silverhammer - dwarf rogue (Dave)
Beam - dwarf cleric of the Raven Queen (Bob P)
Angvar, son of Tollec - hal-elf ranger (Jim)
Drew - Dungeon Master
In the next couple of weeks I'll have painted up our minis. I'll then post them here with links to our back stories. Your gonna dig it.
Think I'll throw something on the tv now.

I hate being weak. One day my UPS shipment will arrive with my Christian Bale body that I ordered back in aught 3 and I'll be right!
So, suffer through more of my useless drivel and unispired non-paint work while I pick away at the Combat Actions chapter of Strike Force Commander.
Looking forward to Terminator Salvation this weekend. Batman with an autorifle makes for an awesome film.....
Oh, and just in case any of you gits want to comment on my posts, oh I don't know, to maybe let me know you're reading this, then you can do so with ease as I opened up the comment section to anybody who wants to leave a pithy quip or mind flayer tentacle dangling from my posts....
I'm gonna eat pizza and watch tv. I'm an expert at that!

I spent the day watching my new Justice League Unlimited season 2 dvd and doing not much of anything.
I do have some ebay auctions going up tonight and tomorrow to pay off the rest of the engagement ring. You can see my massive FOW auction here http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=190302441151
Other than that, not much to report. I also got a Druid Overseer fig for my birthday and will convert it to be Karnus Hornwrath for our D&D game.
I'll post more when I get more painted.

But the good news is I'm playing 4th edition D&D! Never thought I'd do that again, but I'm so impressed by the new rules and am so in need of geek game time with other geek gamers that I'm in balls deep.
Yeah, I'm gonna tell you about my character now. Because that's a frakkin' requisite. My first character was an homage to my very first D&D character from the red basic boxed set back in 1982. He was an elf, mainly because I was a skinny little elf kid, named Jen Silverleaf. I then later had a character with AD&D named Greyshade who was an elf magic-user thief. So for 4ed my first character was an Eladrin Rogue who planned on multi-classing into Wizard at 2nd level. I called him Wychwood and gave him a mysterious patron from the Feywild who sends him out as an agent.
Wychwood was meant to be a team game character but I played him with my buddy The Q when he stayed the weekend down here. Wychwood died and was brought back by a raise dead ritual and is now pretty psychologically unstable and fey to boot.
So, for my other campaign, I'm playing a half-orc Druid named Karnus Hornwrath who belongs to the same Feywild order that Wychwood does. He recently sent Wychwood packing back to the Feywild and is now joined with Phariom, Tinbok (his cousin), Gok & Stormfang in search of some elf chick who he'll likely try to hump in his Stagman wild shape.
I painted up a Wychwood fig, but he recently took a tumble off of the gaming table and got chipped up. I think I'll strip him and repaint him. I'm gonna get a Karnus fig this weekend for my birthday and when he's painted I'll post him.
Semper Fi, carry on!

This is before the addition of the bubble helment. Here's a tip, use a non CA glue for the helmets. I used CA and the damn helmet started to fog up.
I'll probably have to pop the helmet, shave it down some more and re-attach it with tacky glue. Wish I had've thought about that first.
Here's some more finished Thirty Years' War Imperialists starting with the Cuirassier on foot and followed by the pikeman converted to a Pistolier.
And finally a pic of all three Imperialists together ready to defend the Habsburg Dynasty!
Well, that's all for now. Gotta start the big auctions soon for Project Engagement Ring. Painted FOW Fallschirmjager, DBA Germans & Austrians to sell off. Stay tuned!

Here are the first of a slew of great auctions.
Please spread the word!
Yeah, you probably didn't need to hear that, but part of you is mildly amused anyway...
Maybe I'll go upstairs and continue painting on my spacemen and TYW figs. Maybe I won't. Feeling kinda mentally blah as well as physically blah.
I'm happy with the way the minis are looking so far, now I just need to finish them.
I've decided on a name for my space crew: Captain Judge and the crew of the Final Verdict.
Yeah, its cheeseball, but it should sound cooler when the whole 11 man/woman unit is finished.
I'll have to get off my ass and finish Strike Force Commander so I can use them to playtest the Epic Heroes Sci-fi/Fantasy/Pulp supplement.
Well, for today I'll just remove any and all expectations of myself and enjoy the day as best as my bowels will let me.

So, here I am on the couch having just awakened from a big fat nap. Oh, what a joy indeed! Earlier I watched Shoot 'Em Up! for the first time. What a ridiculously AWESOME action movie! It is so over the top that you just have to roll with it. Definitely made for guys. Chicks will get radiation burns from touching the remote if they watch this movie.
Speaking of chicks, me and Babydoll went to Reno this weekend to see our friends and just hang out. We had a great time as usual. Now I'm just a couch warmer.
I'm having a mad debate as to whether or not I should lay here and surf the net or go upstairs and paint my TYW figs and spacemen conversions. I should shower as I stink. I should also walk the dog, as I promised her I would. But all of that would mean I would need to get my lazy ass off of this sofa.
I just finished an awesome book by Eric Flint called 1632. My friend Roman turned me on to the series. I'm now starting a David Edding's book with Sparhawk that my brother Q turned me on to. I've been reading more fiction of late than probably ever before. I have too much real world shite in my head and I guess I need to balance it out.
I had a 45 second urge the other day to play D&D. It then soon passed. Wierd.
I'm having some angst over painting my Blue Moon Spacemen conversions. I decided to paint them in three different color groups and tie them together with their equipment harness and oxygen tank colors of a dark brushed metal. I went with Red for Command & Control, Blue for Sciences, and Dark Yellow/Gold for Engineering. Yes I lifted it straight from Star Trek, and I have no shame about it either. I'm in an artistic panic because I like my units to look uniform, and I don't take artistic chances ever! I mean ever!
Well, gonna go shower and walk the dog. Might even put on some clothes....

I called him Judge and he was a stern eyed badass. Sure, he was low level but he carried his balls in one hand and his hammer in the other. He had an Iron Cross branded or tattooed on his forhead (I don't remember which). Cuthbert's holy symbol was an equilateral cross and wearing it on his forehead was a lifestyle choice...
I attempted to make a suitable miniature of Judge, and was very close to finishing one, but just didn't quite get there for my taste. I ended up creating a Black Templar Chaplain that I named Judge and took a mild Eternal Champion attitude about this bald bastard who leveled evil to save Mankind, all the while chastizing Mankind for its lazy ineptitude! Not a very well liked guy, but then again, neither is the Punisher.
Here's Chaplain Judge in the flesh:
