The last few weeks have been low on the hobby side and high on the mundane side.
The Missus passed an"in demand" certification last week and most the the previous 2 weeks were spent assisting her studies.
My work schedule has been busy and left me too tired to go out and game on most weeknights. The weekends are spent with the wife; lateley trying to convince her to game more. (More on that later)
I have not been totally lax in my hobby work. Far from it. Most of the time spent helping the wife study were also spent building metal models that I have been putting off (mostly because they are a pain to build.)
Here is a sampling of what I got done...
On the painting side the output has been slow. I managed to get 10 Grots painted. These guys are from my original 2nd ed boxed set. they are not the best models but I think they paint up pretty good. The Grot handler was painted a few years ago back when he was a warboss!
I also made some progress on my modified (IE Kitbashed) named characters for my Blood Dragons.
In a previous post I showed you my Cato Sicarius conversion. these next two will represent The Shadow Dragon (aka Captain Shrike) and the Iron Dragon (Pedro Kantor)
Iron Dragon (Pedro Kantor)
NOVA OPEN- This just in...
The Wife will not only allow me to do the nova open this year but she intends to participate in the Fantasy GT herself (She will be unmasking a new Army to use at the tournament)
All of this is dependent on the the Fantasy stuff coming together... I have had a bear of a time trying to get more information about this one. we are only a few months out and no word on Fantasy yet... This is getting worrisome.
Well that's it for now.

The latest issue of Skavenblight Gazette is out now!
It was while looking at these guys (Back around issue 3) that I discovered Podhammer the first Warhammer podcast I ever listened to. From there it expanded to 40K Radio, Worlds end Radio, Eternal Warriors (as DLT), The 11 th Company and through them the Gamers lounge. As well as a host of others over the last few years.
So without finding the Skavenblight Gazette my podcast experience might have been vastly different...
So anyway back to the focus of this post.
Check Out Pages 16 and 17 before you look at any other part of this top notch publication.
You will see some fantastic creations for various Skaven Armies one or two may surprise you.
Thank you "Ratling the Mad"
