Getting Some Miles.

 I ended up doing some commission work through my friends local shop. It was for a Heroforge miniature that I was really unsure about working with, mostly to do with the quality and texture of the models. When I finally saw the model I was impressed enough to give it a try, I was also happy with the colors and how they wanted it to look. I haven't done any work for pay in a long time, and rare for me to actually finish anything these days.

I ended up attempting some green stuff work on the base, since it was a D&D character and would more then likely be dungeon bound.

 I used my phone to get the pictures but it turned out really well. More importantly the customer really liked it.

 Also I managed to finish most of the Imperial Assault models, some Dungeons and Dragons, and another chunk of the Decent models. So much more to go, maybe even some more commission work.

Setting a Goal

 Just about finished with the IA heroes, not my best work but I'm trying to get through all of it at a good pace. Still not sure what I am going to do with basing them.
 My goal for the year is getting all of the Decent models done, hopefully I can get an actual game started.

In Gear

  Actually making a lot of progress with Descent and Imperial Assault models.  I need to work on the eyes some more with a few of these but its getting there.
 I'm having a lot of fun with the Descent lieutenant's, but hopefully I can try and get a monster group done a week, along with a hero. Bol'Goreth is an amazing model, I just need to finish the base and details like finishing the shields. Trying to decide what to do on the all of the bases, sand or just paint dungeon tile?

Jump start

 Actually back to painting, a lot. Imperial Assault and Decent has recharged my interest. More to follow.

A different gear.

I've manage to paint a lot, but never seem to finish much. I have recently picked up a lot of D&D minis and made a lot of progress. I bought a box set for 40k, painted and never played. I've pretty much shelved playing that game ever again. unhappy with the company and constant editions. Hopefully I'll paint the armies and sell a lot of it off in the future. Hoping when the weather cools off I can get a lot more painting done. I don't even know where these Dark Angel models ended up, painted them and misplaced them when I moved the desk. I'm rather overwhelmed with models and have left most of the stuff boxed up.

New start

A fresh start again, in a new place to live and paint. I seem to get back into the painting and slip back out so easily. I am having a hard time deciding what to paint and sticking with it. I was going to do the new 40k box set models, but I keep thinking about all those blood angels laying in boxes. I managed to get something done anyway, I will hopefully keep going on the western characters, they are rather fun and different. Still need to get the good camera out as well.

Back in the Saddle.....Again

Well I'm breaking out the paint again, and hopefully starting again. Hoping these Black Scorpion mini's are a good start. I have a couple blood angels I may dabble with as well. I'm still on the fence with 6th edition 40k, need to start reading this book for myself.

Its a start.

Besides listening to podcasts, I haven't really done a single thing with any of my models or games in months. I put a lot of it in storage, cleaned out the hobby room and pretty much took a long break.
All the while I keep thinking of all the models I want to paint and armies to finish. There is finally a new game store back on this side of the river, so that should be sign that I need to get back into it.
What better way then a new game and even more models? Yeah I probably need a twelve step program for all this. I actually picked up Flames of War because my roommate is not a gamer at all, but loves history. Mainly WW2, so why not try this game?

Turns out his step son had bought him a model for the game a while back, seems like a good sign. I am starting with a German Tank army, and an American mechanized force.

I spent the day trying to assemble stuff, this stuff is difficult. May take me a while to just assemble. Ah well, I will probably get the blood angels out of storage and get them back on the table as well.

Back to it

Here is a petition to GW that's been started.

or an address if you want to send a letter the old fashioned way.
Games Workshop
Willow Road

The past few months I have been picking up sabol foam and a couple cases, trying to fit six armies all in foam at once. I tried some battlefoam, and I cant say I like the foam all that much, or the price. Seems too rough, but they cant be beat for the custom fit.

I have been trying to make more hobby time, and seem to get less the more I try. So I am just trying to small things done at the table when I can. I am still slowly working away on some more death company and chaplain but its been chore. I did break out some other models to hopefully spark my interest. I know I am not very motivated to do anything with a GW model at the moment.

I decided on the basic color for the wargame factory models, probably a traitor guard force when its all done. Picked up the newest battletech boxed set, looking forward to this game since its been so long. I still have an old version called Battledroids off this game. Picked up a couple more Malifaux and decided I need to finish the first model I started.

I did pick up a few of the new greyknight models in the last few months, I think my old ones will do fine but the new ones are pretty nice. Turned a dread missile launcher into autocannons, and magnetized the dreadknight. I wanted him to fit in some foam without taking up the entire tray. I threw magnets on a few spots and made the weapons interchangable. Green stuffed some fingers in order to use all the weapons since the set lacked enough.

Hopefully I find more time, and actually finish some models soon.

Enough is enough

Really, another price increase? I won't be buying anything for some time, not that I can't afford it. I just think enough is enough with Games Workshop, and not just the price increases. I think everyone should email or call GW and let them know how you feel, I doubt they care but who knows with enough people.

I do have a large stock pile of unfinished work to do so I can at least keep myself immersed in the hobby and blogging for some time.

A year later

I can't believe its been a year, and it's been since January since I last posted. Things got rough for me, my divorce really set on my stress level, and my mind has not been in the hobby. I have picked up a few models and tried. I drilled straight through some weapons on a stormraven and decided I needed a break. (not a fan of the stormraven model)

I hope to get back into the blog soon, currently I am buying lots of foam. I intend to get all 7 of the armies into foam for moving and storage. I am liking the new grey knights, and picked up a few models. Hopefully I will get back into the blog real soon, I liked going back over the old posts and seeing my progress, and hope to do it some more this year.
