What do I do in my spare time?

I enjoy playing pen and paper role playing games with my friends, usually we play Dungeons and Dragons and World of Darkness.

I collect and paint Citadel Miniatures, primarily Warhammer Fantasy Battles and Warhammer 40k. Though I mostly just collect, I have also played a few matches.

I often sit working on various projects I have going (primarily in Unity3D), usually just so I can learn new things, currently I am playing around learning XNA for Windows Phone.
