Return of the resurrected hobbyist!

It's been a bit of a helluva couple weeks for me. First the majority of the east coast of the United States got hit by what was basically the little brother to a hurricane. That little punch knocked out power for five days. It also destroyed a friend's modeling studio, so I'm not sure which I would prefer. No power for five days, or having my studio wrecked. Either way, that was not a fun five days.
Then I went down to Richmond Virginia to help my cousin move into her new apartment. In 105 degree heat. Despite drinking close to a gallon and a half of water during the course of the 5 hours worth of work I found myself suffering from heat exhaustion shortly after my return. So I spent the rest of that day in bed.

The next day I was hit with the first punch of an ongoing series of problems. Namely work. And the fact that the company I work for is reorganizing. The reorganizing is fairly radical and wide reaching. I won't go into details, but will simply say I basically have to re-learn the job I was already doing, plus learn how to do three other jobs now. Oh and then I worked for 11 days straight. That all topped off with a rather sever spell of dizziness and mild nausea that had me bed ridden for two days as I worked to recover from the preceding three weeks.

And then finally recovered from those series of ass-kickings I realized that in the course of everything I had yet to finish the two units of Plague Marines I had promised to the Black Crusade. So I've spent the last week working furiously to complete them. I'm not going to go into detail on the units tonight, but they will be detailed in coming posts. Here is a picture of the completed 16 plague marines:
