I hope this doesn't go the Facebook way

where I only log on every four or five months.

A fair amount has happened as of late, so I claim that it's warranted, in this case.

Last Saturday got married to my longtime girlfriend/fiancee. The wedding was beautiful, and the pictures are up on Facebook if any of you have me friended there. We then rented a cabin for a week up in the forest with no internet, and the vacation did us both a lot of good.

Now we're just dealing with the aftermath of trying to fit two people's accumulated stuff in a single apartment.

Hobby-wise, I've picked up the motivation to paint some more; picked up a squad of IG troops to see if I enjoyed painting them. (The jury's still out on it, but it'll be a LONG time before I start picking up an army, if ever.) My Dark Angels are still a mix of plastic gray, basecoat black, and a first coat of DA green; I finally took a leaf out of Drax' book and made myself a painting chart. Boy, do I have a long way to go.

I've more or less given up on the Wood Elves - they could be an interesting army, but I don't know that I really want to put the effort into mastering them. I'll hang onto them, and probably paint them at slow times, but my WFB heart really lies with the Tomb Kings - and now that we've got all sorts of new releases for them, it's a great time to pick up the army.

I've also been painting the minis for my friend's board game Talisman - they all came plastic gray, which was just too boring. They've taken the paint pretty well (I'm matching them to the cards they came with) and are looking fantastic - I just need a clear sealant so that they don't rub off too badly over time.

Still trucking along at Express Scripts - now a senior supervisor, and have been for a couple months. Still trying to get the hang of all the different responsibilities - customer service has a lot of aspects. It's not all fun, and games, and angry customers, let me tell you.

Well, that's it for now, I suppose. I'll try and get pictures up soon of anything I've done recently - but I know better than to promise, I suppose. The last one didn't pan out, after all.
