Hard to believe the blog turns 5 today! Time, like the last model I assembled, sure does fly. This past year especially felt like non-stop, go go go -- it was a tremendously busy year with real life stuff that didn't leave much time to hobby unfortunately. But, I was fortunate to make it out to a few really awesome gaming events, some of the best games I've had in a looong time!
I'm happy to finally have some hobby progress to share too, with this sleek looking Voidraven bomber:
From this point, I need to magnetise the void mine and probably the main gun and missile mounts. Then on to the painting. The kit is beautiful and I hope I can give it a proper paint job. It may be overcosted game-wise but I absolutely intend to field it, along with it's smaller sibling the Razorwing jet fighter. It looks too cool to stay in the display case. Anyways, I hope to make some more progress on this over the holidays when I have some more time off.
Man, NOVA was awesome! I mean, it's always been awesome but this year was just a whole new level of awesome. I was able to catch up with some old friends and meet a whole lot of new ones, have drinks and talk shop with the one and only Natfka, hung out with one of the creators of Dropzone Commander (almost every night haha), rocked out with Mike Brandt in the charity lounge, fought off food poisoning with Lagavulin 16, and just had a kick ass time in general!
It was another awesome NOVA Charity BBQ event! We battled through an early downpour of rain at the start of round 1, endured the sweltering humidity and 100 degree heat index that followed, all for a great cause! (breast cancer research)
