James often claims that he is the world’s slowest mini painter, but I think I might have him beat… only because it takes me months to get the motivation to finish painting minis, even if I am writing a series of posts about painting minis to try and keep myself motivated… I all seriousness, with the surgery that I had a few weeks ago, it was hard to concentrate on much else in the weeks leading up to it, so I really didn’t get much of anything hobby or site related done during that period of time. Now that my recovery is well underway, I was able to finally get some painting time in, and I was able to actually finish my Delaque gang.
Well, it’s been 5 day since the last episode of Under the Brush, and despite my wrist being stubborn and not wanting to heal, I managed to get a little done this week.
Well, it’s been a couple of weeks since the previous post about painting my Delaque gang, so I thought I would check in. Admittedly, there has been very little progress. Between the sprained wrist, which is healing slowly but surely, and the drama of Hurricane-pocalypse here in Texas this week, there really hasn’t been much time for painting. I did, however, get about an hour or so to paint this afternoon… after the power came back on at the house.
Today marks the start of a new and (hopefully) ongoing section of Wyrd Stones and Tackle Zones. It’s called Under the Brush, and it will focus on what minis and/or terrain we are currently painting. For me, personally, I am hoping that it writing about what I am currently working will help me keep my motivation and focus for miniature painting. The idea is to write multiple posts as I progress with painting the minis I currently have on the table. We’ll see how this all pans out for me… Well, with the clever (I guess that’s debatable) intro out of the way, let’s take a look at what is Under the Brush!
Who has got two thumbs and got another package in the mail today? This guy! Two weeks ago today, Forge World put the new Griff Oberwald and the Skaven Rat Ogre on pre-order. I ordered them, because of course I did! I have a Blood Bowl addiction, remember? Well, it is now two weeks later and I have a box to open, so how about we get to it!
