Where's my head @?

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer a little bit, but not as much as usual. With my son home from uni things are still adjusting. He's very much a night owl, whereas I'm currently struggling with tiredness. Late nights are beginning to take their toll, and when I say late I mean midnight [which isn't that late for me]. In fact my sleeping is probably better than ever, I'm getting almost 7 hours sleep a night which is way more than I was pre-lockdown. I think I'm just getting old.

With those situations combined it's a little difficult to fit painting in. However, I have made significant progress with my Macragge Tactical Squad - they're complete even! And, I've progressed with my Ravenwing Talonmaster when I've been working on similar elements - Blessed Verdigris, orange plasma glows etc. Unfortunately I haven't been keeping too much of a record of this progress, hence the lack of updates.

As the Macragge squad is now finished I'll have to take their TO DONE! pics and I'll get WiPs for the Talonmaster at the same time. I've also been fettling with my Ravenwing Attack Bikes a bit. They're still pretty roached 2nd hand ebay finds and I need to clean them up so they can be included in my Big Build TO DONE! I've managed to fit a Rogue Trader era Devastator Multi-Melta onto the sidecar though, as I was one short. It looks pretty cool, more streamlined than the current plastic version. These need priming alongside the Black Knights. I think they're more a 2021/22 Hobby Season project, but if I can get them prepped it'll be a good starting point.

I also need to crack on with building my Armiger Helverins, they need to be ready for Dreadtober and if I'm in a building mood, perhaps get my Genestealer Cult Sentinels ready too. Back to painting I also need to box off:
  • Adeptus Titanicus Reaver Titan
  • Adeptus Titanicus Warhound Titans
  • Imperial Knight Preceptor Weapons
  • Blood Bowl Halfling team
  • Munitorum Containers
  • Quad Gun weapon mount base
  • TT Combat terrain building
Among numerous other projects. How I'm going to fit those in is anyone's guess - given where my head is @.  Luckily, there is no pressure to finish anything. The Preceptor weapons and Quad Gun base might be a priority after/alongside the Talonmaster, then I may do a Halfling or two. Maybe have a crack at the Titans, they are close to finished if I can just get over my issues executing the War Griffons deckled pattern... Another mental challenge to overcome, but the longer they sit there, almost complete, taunting me, the easier it'll be to accept whatever I end up doing. 

So, TO DONE! pics next on the blog and updates as and when I have time to hobby.
