By way of proving I'm still around, here's what I've been doing:
1. Finished painting Indian Mountain Gun & gunners; finished Sikh Vickers Team; nearly finished with four Battle Honors Arabs (more about this later); assembled and mounted for painting Artizan Arab irregular Lewis Gun team; mounted 8 Brigade / Artizan Arab Irregulars; basecoated and applied a wash to a Sikh 2.75" mountain gun team (the gun is painted).
2. Bought 27 old minifig painted Sikhs off e-bay; bought painted Asienkorp figures and artillery from Helen.
3. I've been reading: an article from Blackwood's Magazine (1921) called "The Rifle Thieves of Iraq"; the official history of the East Africa campaign (1914-1916); some old Chris Peers articles in WI on East Africa; a book of military despatches from T.E. Lawrence.
4. My family will be out of town for a week so I'm planning at least one solo game at home. Not sure what rules I'll use, maybe CRossfire, maybe Square Bashing.
