Yesterday I did some puttering about, nothing extremely worthy. Cleaned up my airbrushing area, organized some stuff.

I did spend a LOT of time with my lil girls this weekend, which is what it's all about. One of my most cherished memories not only of my mother but of my childhood is watching The Hobbit cartoon, with fresh popped popcorn. I got to recreate that with my daughter today, and she loved it and it made me infinitely happy. My One year old is really starting to interact and run around, and she would come tearing out of the other room yelling 'Daddy!' and hug my legs. Parenthood rules! I also hung out with my wife more, instead of going downstairs and locking myself in the basement. Awesome overall weekend.

I also read most of Know No Fear. What an awesome book!

I've had this ugly painted Giant for a while, I think I'm going to work on him for a bit tonite. I just don't have the energy to break out the Airbrush right now.

I've got to do something better, more concrete. I've just been putzing around, researching Iron Warriors. I've decided to go with Iron Warriors first for the upcoming Chaos Codex, mainly because I hear the Raptors will be released in a later wave. I also want to do some heavy converting, and not have to be obsessed over painting. So the Iron Warriors scheme is pretty easy, I should be able to get an army to tabletop really fast while concentrating on the modeling aspect.

I also sold a bunch of SM stuff tonite that I had just lying around, so I have more money for FW and new CSM stuff. Talked shop with my friend for a while concerning 40K.

Tonite I also rummaged around in the bitz, I have an idea for Terrain Build #34.

I built lists for my Fantasy game tomorrow.

I guess my night was pretty Gaming Centric, though I didn't paint or build much!

I almost forgot, I did some research into creating Knight Titans...MUHUHAHAHAHA!!!

Tonite I played Warhammer Fantasy! It was pretty cool, because myself and my opponent had mostly painted armies. I'm influenced to finish some of these units off. Right now, I'm barely awake...which it's weird to be tired this early.
