Crap all! As Blog Wars apporached and the building work transformed into decorating pretty much the only painting I did was walls, doors and skirting boards. The den where I do most of my hobby work became a dumping fround for soft furnishings preventing me from painting and I've still to discover my missing 11 Genestealers amongst all the detritus. However, as of Tuesday the last of the carpets were fitted and asside for tidying and remedial bits and bobs the house is pretty much done.
I'll expect a renewed push by my better half to remove the hobby paraphernalia to a shed or garage within the next couple of months particularly as I feel some stirrings of my hobby mojo. I was actually devoid of all mojo for a period, definitely not helped by those missing Stealers. I still pottered but I felt no desire or motivation to get on and do stuff but I'm starting to feel like I've lost a lot of time and just want to get stuff done. Unfortunately I have a lot of stuff at building stage when I actually just want to paint. So I'm going to be sensible and just do the things that will move me on.
- First up my Blood Bowl Elves only need to have their base edges painted and varnished. That's a super quick win and they're on my hobby list too.
- Secondly, my Realm of Battle board. I just need to add some extra washes in all the crack and then do the skulls again, so many skulls...
- I've some resin that needs washing...
- And if I get bored with all that my Dark Vengeance Tactical Squad can be finished off.
I'd allow a "hobby to do list" check off for all those mega house renovations!
I don't think I can bring myself to award a tick but it'll definitely be a contributing factor to what I did or didn't do at the end of the hobby season, and I had such high hopes too!Delete
You're not the only one caught in a rut at the moment. It just seems to be that time of the year. Hang in there mate ;-)ReplyDelete
Maybe, although this time last year I was building Capillary Towers and halfway through some of my most ambitious builds yet. Now I'm sulking about lost Stealers [which isn't right in a way because I did receive 10 Genestealers out of the blue, but it's the lost Space Hulk ones and more than that they were painted!] in the midst of helping [as a Governor] with the new Head Teacher process at my son's school, stressed about X-mas, lots of work @ work and also under pressure to do the annual Christmas card to the wife. Some'ts gotta give, but thanks for your support.Delete
