More as proof of life than an opportunity to show any real progress, I thought that I would take this opportunity to celebrate the 150th edition of 'Paint Table Saturday'. The start of the academic year has been a veritable whirlwind, all is well, just incredibly busy. I have managed to lurk around a couple of the blogs that I follow, but more often than not we have just been collapsing in a heap on our return from work. This has meant absolutely zero progress on the hobby front and I was alarmed to find that my brush cleaning water had evaporated and dust was forming on the table.
So what can I show you? Where there is a Headless Horsemen, whose base has been started along with a Colonel Darnford. I have prepared some characters ahead of Dinovember along with a couple of larger pieces waiting in the wings, but that's about it really. I have managed to add to my ever growing collections of rule sets with Dragon Rampant and Black Ops both landing on the door mat recently - who knows where they will lead, but so far have resisted Congo.
Still it is not all doom and gloom and I am looking forward to catching up with my old chum, the Provost Marshal today as we head off to EuroMilitaire. Finally then, don't forget to visit the rest of the Paint Table Saturday community here.
Good to hear something from you my friend!ReplyDelete
Those pieces of work look very promising I'm looking forward to seeing more of them. Let me know what you think about Black Ops. We tried a while ago and found it very interesting and challenging. A bit complicated unfortunately...
Enjoy your trip to Euromilitaire!
Thank you Stefan, it seems to have been a long time since I last painted anything. I am curious about Black Ops, quite fancy a container ship!Delete
Good see see you at the brush Sir M. Mine haven't been dipped in paint since the Challenge!!ReplyDelete
It has been a touch two weeks and no sign of letting up - still it will be Christmas soon! :)Delete
Enjoy Euromilitaire, I always found it inspirationalReplyDelete
It is packed full of inspirational work, quite humbling really.Delete
Great news! Waiting for more!ReplyDelete
Sadly it may be a while.Delete
Ooh, Euromilitaire. Great stuff, and lucky you. I hope you have a great day.ReplyDelete
Fabulous day out Roy, really inspirational.Delete
Definitely a bad sign when brush water evaporates ! Or very hot which it has been 😀ReplyDelete
I have to say I was alarmed at just how quickly it seemed to have evaporated!Delete
Oh enjoy euromilitaire. Would love to go Folkestone well known to me but now a very long way away 😀ReplyDelete
It is a wonderful show, thoroughly enjoyable.Delete
Great stuff Michael. Enjoy Euromilitaire!ReplyDelete
Thank you Rodger.Delete
Seeing that stegosaurus is making me look forward to Dinovember!ReplyDelete
Not long now, just need to get past Zomtober first!Delete
Busy busy, dust on the table? I know this...tomorrow is another day! Enjoy euromilitaire Michael!ReplyDelete
Thank you Phil, hope you get a break soon too.Delete
Sometimes it is more interesting to note what you have in the painting queue..... Ironclad earth drilling machine for example.ReplyDelete
Thank you Clint, looking forward to that mole in due course.Delete
I know the feeling too, Michael; college has kicked off and my unfocussed painting plans have stalled also :-(ReplyDelete
Not to worry Monty, it will soon be Christmas! :)Delete
Buena mesa tienes preparada
Me gusta y espero ver las pinturas en ese dinosaurio
un saludo y buen finde semana
Thank you J.D. I hope to get some more painting done soon.Delete
Evaporated, eh? My brushwater stays covered so it just grows all sorts of exotic bacterial lifeforms during extended absences from the paint-table.ReplyDelete
I'm a sucker for Dinosaurs so that Stegosaurus is of particular interest.
Exotic bacterial lifeforms, not sure I could cope with that!Delete
I do understand new year chaos. The stuff waiting in the wings looks great. Enjoy the showReplyDelete
Now sign of it letting up anytime soon, but I'm sure will get there.Delete
Masterpieces in progress.ReplyDelete
You are very kind Jay.Delete
Your dinosaur looks very interesting indeed. Cheers, KarlReplyDelete
Thank you Karl.Delete
Congratulations on reaching the 150 mark, an achievement in itself. It will also be interesting to see what you make of the Osprey sets.ReplyDelete
I quite fancy the idea of some modern games, but who knows where that will lead.Delete
Good to hear from you mate! Make sure you take loads of photos at EM.ReplyDelete
Still hanging in there, photographs taken and duly posted - hope you enjoy them. ;)Delete
Real life does get in the way sometimes. Nice to see you've found a few moments to get back into the hobby.ReplyDelete
Thank you A.J. this was just the ticket to get the creative juices flowing again.Delete
Now, that dinosaur looks rather familiar...as I'm joining you for Dinovember, I may have to forego the Stegosaurus in favour of other big lizards. Luckily, I have rather a few - might not all be from the same era though, but Pulp or Victorian Lost World's don't always follow logic...ReplyDelete
Yes the Stegosaurus has been a long time coming, but looking forward to Dinovember, especially now you are on board.Delete
Black Ops is well worth looking at.ReplyDelete
Now if only I can find some time.Delete
I'm looking at that same "Stego" myself, I think Jez mush be producing them or something! I also notice you have the "Mole" that I have coveted for several years too.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the show.
I have a feeling that Jez buys them by the bucket load! I'm hoping to show horn the Mole into Dinovember too.Delete
These days of low output are I think something of a positive as they help re-charge the batteries and get you eager for more, so they have good purposeReplyDelete
I think you are absolutely spot on Ian. Just taking time out can often help to refocus.Delete
Hope that you'll find a smidge of time and energy to work on some of these new and fun sounding projects sir.ReplyDelete
Dino's.... I wonder if my son has an old beastie I could give a new life to?
I'm always impressed when anyone can keep their paint-table usable and anot as another shelf/storage area.ReplyDelete
