Where the *bleep* did one inch warriors go?

What MacArthur said about old soldiers is also true about blogs -  they don't die, they just slowly fade away.  For a while I was content to let one inch warriors fade away into the depths of the blog rolls, never to see site traffic again... although apparently I've still been getting tons of hits from bizarre Google searches, but that's probably a result of the images I've poached to spice up my posts.  Alas, having spent months away from blogging, painting and gaming altogether has renewed my spirits and instilled a new, yet slightly tempered yearning for hobby action.  I also have a bunch of half-finished posts that if left uncompleted would make me feel criminal for the deprivation inflicted upon my (hopefully) loyal readers.

Right before my on-again-off-again hobby odyssey was put on a self-inflicted temporary hiatus, I had agreed to help best-warhammer-buddy Justin work on his then new and shinny Dreadfleet box.  Unfortunately that didn't get too far due to a multiple fatality car accident that kept him stuck in traffic on the freeway for most of the day that we were planning on using to assemble and paint the games pieces.  With the little time we had, we got things built (those boats were challenge) and primed... and then decided to go drink beer with our old college buddies!  I did manage to get one ship painted a few days later:
