Now, being a relatively slow painter and one that's prone to changing his mind as often as the humming bird flaps its wings, I am here to report that chaos has ensued at the beloved homestead! I was hoping to take advantage of a couple of days of relative calm to notch up my first entry for the 'The 4th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge' and all was going well until a bout of the aforementioned indecision struck!
Having foolhardily asserted that I would enter a miniature for each of the bonus rounds, I assiduously started to prep these and this is where the problem started. Within a matter of hours, I had such a wonderful assortment of shiny, (oh so very shiny miniatures!) on the table that I was transfixed, rabbit like, to what lay before me.
Fear naught, dear reader, there would be no close encounter with a Michelin tyre for this bunny, in fact I have to confess that this is all a rather wonderful experience. I have long claimed that my primary factor for indulging in this most wholesome of hobbies is to have fun and fun I am having. Yes, I may have wandered from the prescribed path, starting miniatures that are for entries planned early in the New Year, but I do so with a smile (or was that a maniacal grin?) on my face.
In many ways this was inevitable and foreseen, which brings me, albeit tortuously, to the subject of this post - the tents! Some simple terrain pieces for the St Trinian's board, that originally starting out as 'Renedra Plastics' Dog Tents, with a copy of added patches and a lurid paint job. I imagined them left, unloved and quietly gathering mildew at the back of the 'Duke of Edinburgh' stores, offered here by way of a filler until I actually finish something for the challenge!
