No, I'm not dead. Real life has decided to throw me a ridiculous curve ball, and as such, hobby has taken a back seat to getting life sorted out. As a result, I've had to back out of combat patrol at Adepticon. I will still be going, but there was simply no way to get models painted in the weeks leading up to the event.
So I plan to be back in the saddle roughly two weeks after Adepticon. By then I'll be in new living quarters, with ample time to devote to the hobby bench. The Fire Hawks, WAAAGH Teek, The Blindwater Congregation, and my burgeoning KoB fleet for Dystopian Wars should all start seeing new life and new paint.
