Well here we are almost at the end of May and I don't think I've touched my brushes once or even played a game. I did however throw some money at the Robotech Kickstarter project. That will give me plenty of stuff to gripe about not having time to paint. I am really excited about this though. I can't seem to go more than an hour without having some kind of Veritech related thought.
With restarting my quest for a bachelor's degree my time has been at a premium. By the time I'm done being husband, father, soldier, and student there isn't a lot of time left to be a geek. Hopefully as I get closer to retirement things will let up some and I'll have more hobby time.
On a geek note, you need to go see Into Darkness now. Seriously, stop reading and go to the theatre. I enjoyed the movie. I'm and old fan of the original series, but I have no beef with the new films. This one is good and I think I'm going to have to get the bluray to see if I missed anything.
Also, got a new phone today. Matter of fact I'm composing this post on it. This may result in more random thought type posts.

I've been trying to work with various game systems to work up a usable Macross fighter combat game, but to be honest the problem was always finding affordable Zentradi figures. Sure I could have gone to Hobby Link Japan and ordered a bunch of gashapon, but to be honest they focus on the Valkyries and getting a Tri-Fighter seemed near impossible. I know there have been some stuff on Shapeways, but to be honest I don't like the looks of their material. Even the stuff that is supposed to be smooth seems to have a rough surface and excessive stratification from the printing process.
Apparently the Ninja Division Facebook page will be the mouthpiece for the project and the Kickstarter has been submitted for approval and posting. I expect this one to go large for nostalgia's sake if nothing else.
I've sent them an email nicely explaining that the content was reposted without my consent and that I'd like it removed soonest with a response when they have pulled the content. I did a quick search in Google on "painting a shield generator power plant" and tutofig was the first result with my (original) content second, so it's not like the content won't be available if they pull it. It's about the fact that my work was stolen.
For those of you who have your own blogs, you may want to see if any of your content has been similarly taken without your consent.
