Hi all, I’ve not posted here for awhile now in fact I think it may be nearly 12 months since I last posted something. I’ve decided to change this blog slightly..I will still en devour to add posts about painting, but from now on there will  be posts based around non historical gaming, as my other blog is mainly concerned with history and historical gaming (http://musketswordpaint.com/). Therefore I decided to try an up the ratio of blog posts on here and write about my gaming in the realms of fantasy and sci-fiction as well.

The last 18 months have seen some massive changes in my personnel life, which has meant that my painting, gaming and writing has taken a hit..Musket, sword and paint blog has been sporadic over that period with blog posts…my gaming has spiraled down to virtually none existence and painting has been a long slog…I did managed to keep Irregular Magazine in reasonable shape, though this year the team had a period of where real life got in the way of things…

So I will be uploading a post later today looking back over the items I’ve managed to paint this year, as well what I have planned going into 2013. I will also add my first gaming article..so for now cheers and this blog is now active again..
