My joints have been really bugging me of late so I haven’t been doing any painting. As odd as it might seem, painting is the worst thing for my joints so if I have any residual joint pain I tend to avoid painting. You can’t spell “paint” without “pain” :-) Thankfully I have a lot of figures to assemble and get ready for when I can paint so that is what I did today.
One of the tasks that I have been working on is assembling the figures from the Super Dungeon Explore core game. The twins are going to be helping me paint them and I finally got the last of them cleaned and assembled. The girls helped assemble the two Ogre figures and were quite pleased with themselves.
I have a real problem with staying focused on a project long enough to see it to completion. I suspect that I am not unique in this but the last month has been exceptionally crazy for hopping from project to project. So I think that to tame the beast that is my unbridled enthusiasm, I will be setting monthly painting and gaming goals so I at least focus on one or two things a month in hopes of getting them done.
I took a quick trip to Sentry Box this morning to spend some of my Xmas/birthday money. I picked up some more figures for my Menoth army, some GW plastics to build a Chaos Blood Bowl team and a limited edition Candy and Cola figure for Super Dungeon Explore. Oddly the entire stock of SDE boxed games were sold out but for some reason they still had a Candy and Cola blister available. I suspect that perhaps the news about the mini didn’t get out as much as the general news about the game.
For Warmachine I picked up a metal Kreoss figure, Severius and a Reclaimer. I also grabbed the last blister of Flame Guard figures for a full unit. I only have two more Secret Weapon bases left so those will be reserved for the Reclaimer and Severius.
Once the Scotlings are painted I will start to assemble the Chaos team. I actually have a set of metal figures but I really like the plastic Beastmen and Chaos Warrior figures and happily Sentry Box routinely sells four and five model bags made from the GW plastic boxed set.
