A Long, Cold Winter

Hi everybody, It is good to be back! This winter has been, for various professional and personal reasons, a very odd season. I have been obviously distracted from the hobby as I have dealt with both fantastic and difficult circumstances these past six months. Things seem to be sorted at the moment and I am returning to a life that will not only be happy, but filled with plenty of time available to once again pursue this hobby that I enjoy so much.

I hope the handful of readers that I had before my abrupt departure are still around and that you are still well. I'll be visiting your blogs and checking up on your progress over the next few days. ;) As much as I have missed painting and gaming, I have missed interacting with the community just as much. Time for me to get caught up.

I have been  back at the painting table working again on my Roman Republic army while listening to the Ancient Warfare podcast. That is some good inspiration! Below is a WIP of four Roman principes that are nearly complete (figures by Aventine).

  11. Lastly, the STGK015 Elegance Collection Women’s rolex replica Automatic Limited Edition showcases Grand Seiko’s creative chops in the realm of women’s watches. This model translates many Rolex replica of the guiding principles of Grand Seiko design into a diminutive 27.8mm stainless steel package, beginning with the broad curving “Grammar fake rolex uk of Design” case surfacing. These lines are accented here by a glamorous diamond studded bezel featuring 45 individually set stones. The fake watches uk diamonds continue on the dial, where applied diamond indices mark the hours, but perhaps the most intriguing element is the best replica watches sites to buy from dial surface itself. All four limited edition models are designed around Grand Seiko’s signature deep blue, but rather than taking the replica watches uk paypal sunburst route like the men’s models the STGK015 presents a mother of pearl dial in that same rich blue for a uniquely luxurious feel. Without bast replica watches uk review the punch of bright red used on the other models, these luxe materials are allowed to come to the fore and dominate the visual michael kors replica watches conversation. Inside the STGK015 is the Caliber 9S27 automatic movement, a high-beat power plant designed exclusively for Grand replica watches uk trusted deaiers Seiko women’s models. The movement is no slouch, offering comparable accuracy to the men’s models at +8/-3 seconds fake Rolex per day with a smooth 28,8000 bph beat rate. An oyster style bracelet with signed clasp completes the package here. The fake Breitling STGK015 is the rarest of all of these limited editions, with only 300 units planned for fake Omega production. This limited model will be available for approximately $10,925 when it debuts fake Tag Heuer in February.
