OK, first things first… I know this blog has been awfully quiet lately. Well I did not get much done really. For one I was suffering from a serious case of painters block for a couple of weeks now. So while I painted my French infantry, I did not get enough done to finish the whole unit. So nothing to show on that front.
Instead I resorted to things like cleaning minis and resin buildings or working on my river boards. Most of those boards are done, but the ones with the bridges and with the ford still need some work to be done and I want to show them all at once. So again… Nothing to show on that front either.
Now if you say that this does not sound like much work… Well you are right. Work (this does not refer to the hobby, but rather to the job that pays the bills) has been a nightmare over the past few weeks, too. High tide was last week when I had to work nearly 58 hours plus an aggregate 12 hour commute. That hardly left time for anything really. Yes, I know there are laws against that, but that does not mean my boss cares!
Anyway… There was this message to Facebook followers. I know there is a fair number of people who follow this blog via Facebook. While I do not always see big use in Facebook, I know that most of the people on my friends list come from the wargaming community and also that a fair number follow this blog that way. That being said… I do not really like all those new search functions Facebook is implementing these days. I have decided to have my Facebook account deleted by the end of August. Yes deleted, not just hibernated. So if you use Facebook to follow this blog, please make sure that you switch to either subscribing to this blog via eMail (see upper right hand side), through WordPress (if you have and account), via the RSS feed or any other way you can think of. Sorry if this causes you a hassle and thanks if you choose to stay on board anyway!
