Thanks guys. I had a very enjoyable day. After work, took the boys out for some Bushido at a local shop, then we all went out for dinner afterwards (wife was tuckered out after a week of traveling for work so we had her blessing). That made Saturday my de-facto birthday and spend it just hanging out with the family... just perfect in my book.

You'll note I haven't been painting a lot lately. That's because I can't get at my painting desk. Both boys have been painting like mad. I'll get some pics up later. Really proud of both of them.

All the bushido stuff is great (and a nice change from the usual PA stuff in P&M in general) but am I the only one who misses me some Mantis and EC action???

Thing 2 has been a painting and building maniac. I'm really proud of him.




The tree is a Japanese Plum, which really does look a lot like this. All his idea... scratch-built tree from sticks, pink thread for the trailing, flowering branches.

My birthday present from Thing 1. A "Pirates of the Caribbean" themed list I put together using the Bushido faction called the "Jung Pirates".




@Tom: I get you. But the idea of painting the same, or nearly the same figure over and over and over again just to get a basic unit isn't very appealing right now. Also the local 40k scene has pretty well fragmented into nothingness. Which is frankly shocking. I'll get back to it eventually. Maybe in the winter when there's more time to paint.

Nice Bday haul there.

Can we get another view of that tree? It looks excellent.

Also PP just previewed a picture of one of their L5R figures . It’s over in the News and rumors thread. No price listed, but if they start a samurai based game with figs looking like that I’m sunk.

Hey Gits,

Been a while, but i'm glad to see you're still running this leviathan of a blog as I don't think Dakka would be the same without it.
Belated happy birthday, btw. Sounds like you had a good day and got a nice little haul.

Been catching up with the mammoth amount of stuff i've missed. Much like MT11, i'm sad at the lack of mantis warriors, but it's great to see you directing your efforts into bushido, which looks pretty fun.
Also fantastic to see the next gen of Gits making their mark on the hobby (That tree is really clever.)

My Blogs -
Hobby Blog - Currently lots of stuff
Terrain - Currently Middle Earth ruins.
My Instagram - I don't post much.

I'll look through my Mantis Warriors and see if I can't find a character that needs painting.

Nice to hear from you again Snrub. Thanks for sticking with me.

I too have been a bit confused by all of this non Mantis Warrior hobby action. I don't know, you leave a blog for 5 years and suddenly its all Bushido

Happy B-day, Gits! Sounds like it was a great one!

What's the story with the 40k meltdown?

May I suggest....Necromunda?

Clever move with the pink tree - like that.

Also, I'm with you on the repeating the same thing over and over trip. Sometimes I am into it, but I am just not right now. Maybe something will catch your eye again, but until then, just painting individuals is cool. You do you.

The pink army always wins. You beat the pink army? Go ahead and brag about it. You lost to the pink army? Well, then....

New battle report is up. Not the long anticipated long-form report unfortunately and the video just crashed and would not process for YouTube... but an equally brutal affair involving my Tengu and Ben's Prefecture of Ryu. 35 rice, "Ryodo" scenario, short form.

Sorry for the long painting drought... just haven't been in the mood. I'll get back to it eventually.

There's finally a tourney in my area at the end of the month. That may finally get my hobby juices flowing.

Newest video is up. This one is on how we've grown our Bushido community here in Madison. Might be something useful for you if you also play a small, rather uncommon game (regardless of game)..
