Yeah, I'm still alive. No, you didn't miss much in terms of my hobby shenennigans.
I'm currently evaluating if the whole blog business is something for me at all. In general, it would be a decent time to pick this up again: With interest and motivation raising, fuelled by all those 6th edition rumors and the great re-entry point it would offer me, I'm considering getting back into the hobby big time.
But first I have to figure out if this really is something worthwhile, or if I'm just wasting my and everyone else's time. Can I have fun blogging just for blogging's sake? Do I have relevant things to say and show off to generate curiosity and a good reader base? Both? Neither? Let's see if I have enough to say to justify this.
Those thoughts come with age and life, I guess. At some point, you can't just start, invest into, and suddenly abandon projects like it's nothing. Yeah, sorry for that.

Regardless of the stress and almost total lack of free time at the end of this semester (last one before my B.A.), this one's finished. Yay!

For a total of a little more than 3 hours of work, I'm quite happy with how he turned out. By the way, I've just noticed some blades of grass stuck to his calf while having a good look at the pictures. Nope, no accident with the glue, that just stuck to the model on its own, and has been cleaned up in the meantime.
Checking out again, on to actual work. I'll keep you updated.

Fun fact: I hate painting black almost as much as I hate painting white.
That's why I consider this...
... finished, as far as the pitch black goes.
Have a good start into the week, guys and gals.

While "slow and unsteady" would be the attributes I'd describe my current painting progress with...
... some cheap ass perks arrived on my hobby table today, for further examination concerning their usability for a special project of mine.
Can you guess what it is?
Seriously, those Noise Marines sure are a challange in terms of the time I want to waste on my infantry, but it feels like it'll be worth it, so I force myself to stick to da plan. At the moment, I tend to do all of my initial infantry in a single assembly line (that's 18 Noise Marines) to get it over with AFAP, as soon as the initial "filler five" are done. It'll hurt, but they'll look great once finished. On the other hand, I find myself really craving to paint some fast and simple Star Phantoms again. My current plan would be to finish the above stuff until the 14th, and start building all my Chaos infantry then in order to have them done by month's end. While doing this, I might be able to finally start painting my Marine Attack Bikes. Will this plan survive conctact with reality?
I'll keep you updated. Ithmaril, out.
