Happy Hobby New Year 2016

Another new year has rolled around. I made it through another holiday season, terrible Christmas music was only suffered briefly. All in all 2015 closed quietly and relatively uneventfully for this hobbyist.

New job and moving presented serious disruption to my available hobby time in the last quarter of the year. I've got my routine pretty squared away now and will be working to get some hobby work done in the time I have available. I do have all those Betrayal minis to work on, not to mention the assassins and other minis from Execution Force, and my new Knight... and everything else that is kicking around. The pile of gray shame grows ever higher.

These two cultists are the results of my last assault on said pile last year. I plan to add them to the Abhuman Technoheretics and so did them as a colour test. I still don't know what I'm going to do with the Chaos Marine stuff from that box.

Finally, here are the bases for my chaplain, dreadnought, and captain from Betrayal.

So I'm doing stuff again, I'll try to keep the updates rolling as it happens... Last summer I built a Knight and made him modular-ish while maintaining radio silence here. I'll do better.

Cheers,

CJ

Happy Yule to Me

Got some presents for myself during the FLGS holiday sale. I figure I'm overdue for the Space Marine codex. And who can complain about a second Knight? Next on that front is some Forge World reinforcements if work is good :D

Happy Holidays everyone!

See you next year!

Workbench Saturday Update

Not too much happening on my workbench today. This guy is still the focus of my attentions for the moment. I've got his head swap completed, next will be some greenstuff work: bedroll, more pouches, etc.

I've got a hike planned for this afternoon, then more work on this guy tonight and tomorrow.

Cheers,

CJ

Back in the Saddle

First up, hobby boon. I helped clear a load of unwanted craft materials for a friend of mine (and so I could have the room), and as a result I got to sort what I wanted to keep out of the pile. The rest went to good crafty homes, not the dump. Among the pile were about 90 bottles of acrylic craft paint, half or so metallic, a 20oz bottle each of black and white, three 8oz white bottles and one black, a gallon of wood glue, a 3'x8' roll of cork, literally a pound of popsicle sticks, pliers, wire cutters, a cutting mat, a paper cutting thing for scrap booking, and a bunch of clear plastic bins (so I can move my terrain supplies out of empty beer boxes). All perfect for terrain.

Second, while sorting out my mess I found a shotgun toting Scout. He looks ripe for conversion.

Cheers,

CJ

Climb Back Up...


I've got myself some space to spread out again, and am getting my self set and organized again. I want to start painting on Inquisitor Nerfgun's Diorama again soon, and do some more terrain work.

In related news, I've had a hobby boon thrust upon me. I'll report more on that later, too.

Watch this space!

Cheers,

CJ

Radio Silence

'I should have been on the lookout', he said; 'I should have known that God only puts a rug under guys like me in order to jerk it out from under their. feet'.
I love that line and I dare say that every so often I feel like it applies to my life. Eh, I guess that more than a few people have felt the same over the course of time past. I know who I am and how I get to where I end up, and don't blame anyone but myself. I do apologize to my follower for this extended period of radio silence, and there is no relief in sight. I dunno how but I went and burned myself right out on the hobby for now. It's happened to me before, and I've come out the other side with some really cool ideas. So for right now I'm dealing with personal life and just thinking about hobby stuff kinda on the edge of everything else.

As soon as I have something interesting, I'll post it. I promise.

Cheers,

CJ

P.S. Read Stephen King's It if you haven't already. Then read the Dark Tower cycle, and the rest of his stuff.

Go, then, there are other worlds than these.
