Thanks Munin!

Ok, so I fell off the wagon for a little bit, but I'm back! I just updated the Deathmatch scoreboards with August and September voting results, finally... I didn't realize how intense the August voting was! We had two people hit the 10 point cap!

I haven't painted much this past week, mostly because my new PC is finally in so I've been setting that up and playing more Borderlands Presequel than I should be :P

That said... I DID manage to edit and post the Frostgrave Battle Report I filmed about 2 weeks back, where the Mouslings faced off against Ash's wizard "Hrothgar the Sigilist" and his warband!

Check out Magic Murder Mice Ep01!

I'm filming Episode 2 with Owen tonight!

Can't wait to watch the batrep, I'm loving Frostgrave.

I've also been playing Sword Coast Legends when I can, Borderlands is a great game too.

The great thing about Frostgrave is that if you have a bunch of existing D&D minis, you're basically ready to play already... and if you don't, Reaper Bones are super cheap.

Alright, this is due for an update!

I've mostly been playing Frostgrave and editing old painting videos I recorded back in August but never got around to actually editing, because I was waiting to get my new PC.

My Painted vs Obtained tally just took another huge hit: I picked up 9 more Mouslings and Lich Lord, plus a 13 model Bloodbowl commission just showed up... and I'll be grabbing an HH boxed set next week as well... so that's around 60 more miniatures with nothing to scratch off on the painted column. Oops! Maybe I should just stop keeping track of that ;)

Haha, yeah - Keeping track of those is like trying to count freckles on a redhead. (I have 3 redhead daughters, so I speak from experience)

Hey, I have three sons... how old are your daughters?! :lol: :lol: kidding...

definitely agree re: projects/stuff to paint etc though lol Although I think I would describe it more as trying to herd cats. Or toddlers. Either one. You know, a moving target hehe

I am living the dream there too. Though my kids are older and require less herding. I am no my wife's major problem to herd. The models...well, I give up, they grow and not many get painted.

A rather blurry photo of last night's painting progress, the Lich Lord I'll be using in the Frostgrave expansion :D

It's an awesome model. I am a bit surprised you didn't go with a cold colour scheme, but still looks awesome.

I wish I could relate to the hoardes of minis to paint..m but I kinda have the reverse. Time to paint but not lots to paint. :(

I really like this Mike. I'm not familiar with the model, is there any custom green stuff sculpting going on with this model? The faded blend on the base is top notch...soooooo smooth.
