General gaming updates:
- I need about one more day a week just for City of Heroes. (Croatoa is fun!)
- I haven't gotten any real painting done for the 40k Megabattle at the end of the month. This is tragic.
- About as tragic as the fact that my attention span is most often distracted by Warmachine or Heroclix these days, with a little Star Wars thrown in on the side.
- Oh, and to top this all off, all my Saturdays are packed with various affairs, meaning no time for Heroclix.
- I *have* gotten things assembled and primed, for a single step in the right direction.
