NOT DEAD YET!!!!

What's occurrin' ?

Happy New Year everyone! Yes a little late but I found that after the festivities I needed a bit of a lie down to recover. Must be getting old! The blog is also two years old now. Wow, never expected that. I've only just dug my paints and minis out, so no new stuff to show this time, don't worry normal service will resume shortly.

More cultural goodness again. Another beautiful piece from savage zombie aka Chris Bolton. I love this one, black and white, and really creepy! This one is called Zombies_Sketchy. Enjoy!

ZOMBIES_SKETCHY.

It's been awhile since my last post, my apologies, haven't really done any hobby related stuff since my last post. Real life has a funny way of sneaking up on you and kicking all your plans in the ass. A serious lack of motivation has also played it's own part. This seems to be a problem that I periodically continue to suffer with, the meds do help but not all the time.

Anyhow, I hope everybody had a great festive season and I'd like to wish you all a very belated Happy New Year. I'd also like to thank all my followers, commentors and lurkers. The blog has dragged itself to the two year point and I'm more than convinced that if it wasn't for you guys (and gals), it would not have lasted anywhere near this length of time. So thank you, one and all!

I haven't made any resolutions regarding the hobby, or anything else really. I'm not going to be reviewing last year either, I'm sure there was a lot I could have done more of, or stuff I could have done differently. Lessons were learned, so let's leave it at that.

Christmas this year suffered from the austerity thrust upon us by the wonderful people in government. Cheers Bastards! So gaming goodies were in very short supply, but I did get something other than socks.  My son very kindly gifted me more Zombicide goodness in the form of Paolo Parente's survivors box featuring Dylan the Handywoman and Maki the Scream Queen, plus their zombivor counterparts.

LOVELY CRIMBO GIFT FROM MY SON.

These two will join the painting queue and be dealt with in good time, like everything else.

TWO MORE SURVIVORS CRAWL FROM THE RUBBLE!

Let's hope 2016 continues better than it has started. For me at least. I haven't even visited my usual round of blogs, something I hope to rectify soon.

Well that's all I've got for this time dudes and dudettes. So until next time try and be like the DUDE and "take it easy".

    1. Thanks dGG.
      I was starting to worry about myself! Never mind, it's all good now. Yes, I'm sure the Tories know how to line their own pockets!
      It's a bit of a struggle at the moment trying to put my son through a degree course. In your line of work, he's studying to be an ODP. One wonders if there will be a NHS left for him to work in at the end of it tbh.

    2. Ah mate as long as that crook Jeremy Hunt doesn't sell it to his posh mates it should be good by the time your boy qualifies! Good luck to him, I feel your struggle dude as I have to cut down my overtime to be able to keep up with my studies....should be worth it in the end, same as your boy.

      Yeah, Six Nations time, really looking forward to it this year. I think we have a great shout this time around.
      I'm also looking forward to Superbowl 50 too.
      What are they thinking, letting you back in the country?!

      Funny, my son is too similar in his macabre tastes as well.

      Your kind words are much appreciated. Sanity has been reset, I should be OK for a while now.

  7. Happy New Year to you too Bob. I well know how difficult it is to come back to a blog after a break and more so when you haven't actually accomplished anything during the break (except of course R&R).

    1. Thanks Joe.
      Yes, I did find it difficult to get going again. Plenty of R&R though so not completely wasted.
