No Life

I spent the day feeling progressively worse as some sort of cough/cold/sore throat bug has caught up with me. I tried to do a little tidying up around the house, but you wouldn't know it from looking around.

I put a little bit of paint on some figures today. I've been working on the basecoat for my Space Marine Razorback. I spent some time looking for shortcuts, but everything I read says to apply multiple thin coats of paint or you'll wind up with cracks and evident brush strokes in your work. I hate to wait. It looks like it's going to take a while to get the base color built up, then it'll be off to the races on detail work. I also began work on a Duke Gerard figure for Reaper's Warlord game. I've been trying to think of ways to keep my painting going, and I think by switching game systems or working on a couple of projects at the same time I can avoid burning out on any one project.

Yesterday I got my Warhammer Fantasy Dwarf Slayers all cleaned up and epoxied to their bases. With that done I've got 1000 points of Dwarves put together. At some point this week I'd like to line them up across from some Skaven and have a battle. I don't have any scenery, so I'll have to make do with other things to stand in for hills and trees.


  1. I find that I get bored working on one thing so I switch repeatedly. I have a low attention threshhold :)

  2. dang you caught the disease!

  3. This morning I was so sick that I literally had to crawl up the stairs. I was having a hard time keeping my balance while walking.
