What's on my palette?

Bless me #WarHamFam for I have sinned, it's been 2 months since my last confession! But I'd been so busy in getting things out of the way ready for #DreadTober I just needed to take stock.

Indeed, all my Blood Bowl bits seem ready for #ArmiesOnParade and I should have been taking a swing at my Terminators but all momentum for these has typically evaporated.

I've tried some building, I've done a bit on my first unit of Fodder for #Turnip28 but unfortunately my second order of materials is being delayed because some Valejo Black Wash is out of stock. Ironically it's also delaying the arrival of my Norn Emissary, which was in the same order. Ironic because the GW model is in stock! Unlike my Lion order where it was the part holding everything back. 

So, I've not been as busy as I'd like to be and I've been binge watching Community with my son so haven't felt as motivated to paint and conversely became worried that a month would not be enough to paint my pledge for #DreadTober, even with the head start I gave myself.

So, when the urge did come upon me to paint the only thing that I was compelled to and logically made sense to do was crack on with my High Rule Dude and Screamer Killers. Don't feel angry with me, just look at it like this - for me #DreadTober will last just under 2 months! 😉 It's not like I'm painting every day, if I could it wouldn't be a problem. It's just rather than try to fit everything over October, risk burnout or missing the deadline I can spread it out over a longer period, reduce the pressure, increase the chances of getting it all done and more importantly enjoy the process. So, although not technically within the rules of DreadTober I definitely think it's within the spirit and no one will hold it against me. I just though full disclosure as no one needs to feel bad about my progress as I've just started early.
