Reaper Bones Skeletons

So, a quick ankle update.  It turns out that it was actually broken worse than originally thought.  A follow-up X-Ray yesterday showed an additional break rather just the chip they originally spotted.  So I'm sporting a spiffy new cast for the next three weeks.

But, my lack of mobility means that I am now able to paint more!  First off, two of the recent Reaper Bones releases, a couple of skeletons with spears and shields.  Nothing too fancy, just some extras for a fantasy RPG, should I run one soon.

November update

So, I broke my ankle.

Actually, I severely strained the tendon to the point where it ripped a bit of my ankle off, just a small chip, but enough so that I can't put any weight on it for a few weeks, then will have to be in a walking boot after that. It is not a severe injury and there's no reason to assume I won't make a full recovery, but for now I'm pretty hobbled and can't do a lot of the exercise-related hobbies I have been doing lately.

So, back to the craft table.  Although even that is difficult, since my craft table is located in my basement, and getting up and down stairs in difficult.  I'm considering relocating a portion of my craft table upstairs to the TV room where it will be easier for me to get around.  What I really don't want to do is abandon all past-times in favor of just laying around with my leg up, although I'm supposed to be doing some of that by doctor's orders.

I will figure I will just get my ACW Rebels painted up, maybe take a crack at a few of the NQSYW figs.  Bill has been talking about steampunk minis lately, but one thing at a time.

So my bad news for my ankle may mean good news for those who actually like to see pictures of stuff I've painted.  More to come.

Back on the Civil War

So with my RPG-related hobbies ebbing for the season, I thought I would start working on my American Civil War figures again. They are an easy and affordable project to do in my spare moments. I'm focussing on the Confederate troops, figuring it would be easier to raise enough units to get to table if I wasn't bouncing back and forth. So, here are fifteen more just waiting for the based I ordered from Litko to show up.
