Current Reading October 2012

Posted: October 15, 2012 in Books

Currently I am Reading:

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook published by Pazio Publishing

Seeing if this will scratch my roleplaying itch.

Pathfinder Adventure Path: Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition published by Pazio Publishing

Since I picked up the rules, I thought I’d grab an adventure path too.  This hardback seemed a good value compared to picking up the individual soft backed modules.

A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin

This will get me caught up with the rest of those waiting for Winter…and the next book.  Apparently Winter has arrived and iced this book over,  I’m still caught in the snow storm and it’s only Fall.

What I’ve finished Reading:

 The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper

A re-read of a book  I read as a teen.  Now I understand Sam Clemons comments on Cooper’s work.  Still a good read, just not the adventure I remembered from my youth.  Free on the Kindle.

September 2012 Wrap-up

Posted: October 3, 2012 in Monthly Wrap-ups

Miniatures Stats September 2012:

Bought for Month:     0                                                 For 2012:     4  +  (194 pro-painted)

Painted for Month:    2                                                 For 2012:     12

Added the Bismarck and Prinz Eugen to the fleet this month (1/2400 scale Panzerschiffe sculpts).  I didn’t accomplish much else with the brush through September.   A weekend away and busy with work and family took a bigger bite out of my hobby time than anticipated.   I’ve also been spending time checking out the free-play for the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars MMORPG’s, as well as more than a fair bit of time playing World of Tanks.  For October I need to spend some more time painting tanks instead of playing them.

Painting Pledge progress (one 25mm equivalent/week) at 43 weeks into the year with 12 minis done leaves me at -31 for the year to fall into September.  I was doing well resisting buying models, but I did end up joining the Reaper Kickstarter.  I’ll add those to the tally when they actually arrive.
