Peter Jackson just posted a teaser movie poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies on his Facebook page. All I can say is WOW!

* I'm working on a few pirate ships for Legends of the High Seas. I purchased them as a Christmas gift for myself but I am only now getting around to them. They are from Laser Dream Works and so far I think they will be quite nice. I'll write a post in the near future reviewing both of the ships I purchased: HMS Fly and USS Lee.
* With the nostalgic resurgence of D&D taking over much of my hobby time, I have found myself spending more time painting various miniatures from Otherworld Miniatures. I love working on minis with an old school feel without dealing with the poor quality of true old school miniatures. I am using the elven fighter/magic user to represent my character in a Moldvay Basic D&D campaign I'm currently playing in. The plan is to finish him first then move on to a group of pig-faced hobgoblins.
* Finally, though it's not related to D&D, I have another hobby item to share. I've been interested in photography for a long time and I'm always on the lookout for new ways to enjoy taking photos. I've wanted to try aerial photography for a while now but the cost has always been too steep for me to justify. No longer... Prices are now a bit more reasonable so I just dropped some cash on a new quadracopter and have been experiencing an entirely new side of photography. Allow me to share one of my early practice photos. Here is a shot of my neighborhood taken from 130 feet of altitude. We can call it a "dragon's eye view" photo to help tie in this blatantly unrelated photo to D&D.
