Hey guys how is it going?  Been a while I know.  I have been working on this as I can but haven't really finished anything recently so haven't had all that much to share.  Also work has been hectic of late and the rest of my time has been going towards other things.  However I been playing some Malifaux and 40K lately, and finally found my camera's battery charger, so I may have some new battle reports heading your way soon.

However today I would like to thank Black Matt from Black Matt's Black Legion Blog.  He nominated me for the,  STYLISH BLOGGER AWARD! Thanks Matt, I was starting to wonder if I was starting to feel left out seeing these all over the place recently.

Here are the rules:
-- Thank and link back to the person giving you the award (see above)
-- Share seven things about yourself
-- Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award
-- Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award

Ok, seven things
1) I am 6 feet, 8 and 15/16th inches tall but tell everyone I am 6 feet, 9 inches tall because it is easier and a rounder number.

2) My life long dream is to make movies that are seen in theatres around the world. I want to produce, write, design, direct, and edit them. I want to tell stories that move others. Movies that play with the imagination and touch the heart, movies with message and character and that people remember.  I am starting to think this will never happen.

3) My first miniatures wargame was 40k.  I started collecting 40k back in 1989 but didn't actually start playing 40k until 1994.

4)  I am a very stubborn person, stubborn to a fault you might say; it is a trait I get from my father. Sometimes I will stubbornly hold on to something I have said and hold my ground even when I know I am in the wrong. 

5) I am a procrastinator. I almost always wait to the last moment to get anything done and rush to finish never quite doing my best work. I think there are two reasons I do this. First, I crave pressure and only feel I do my best work when pressure is high. Second, the thrill of the adrenaline rush and the fact I do not know how to succeed and feel good about it any other way.

6) I am a realist who desperately wants to be a dreamer. Sometimes I intentionally make the wrong choice because it helps me chase a dream that I know in my heart of hearts will never come true. Why I do this I do not know. Only that I would rather have lived a life full of bad choices while chasing a dream that I never reached instead of never having dreamed at all.

7) In general I see my life as a bunch of failures, missed opportunities, and missteps. However if I were not the failure I am today none of the things that are important to me would be in my life. How is that for karma.

Wow, I went a bit more serious there then some, though I am one of those people who if I am in for an inch I'm in for a mile.

Okay, so the blogs I am nominating are blogs that inspire me regularly. I have broken them down into two groups, one for those bloggers I know personally and one for those I'd like to meet some day.  Then I have included an honorable mention list who are all guys whose blogs inspire me greatly, but who have already been awarded this honor.

Those I know:
Warpstone Pile
The Dead Tau Project
Mongoose Blog
White Rabbit's Legendary Blog
Aaron Dembski-Bowden

Those I'd Like to Meet

Kantor Base

Runners Up (Past Winners)
