There is nothing quite like a week of international travel to put the kibosh on painting momentum – I’ve been back almost a week and still haven’t really got back in the groove yet. Still, I think my goal should be doable if I get my butt in the chair this weekend.
Before I left, I managed to nearly-finish these two guys, the sergeant and a trooper from my hellblaster squad. Despite a bit of a gap where the sergeant’s right arm attaches to his torso, they went together well and are looking pretty good – I’ve been too lazy so far with these guys to paint plasma coil glowies, but seeing how easy it was with these jabronis I decided to go back and redo all the other plasma weapons in the army – only 4, fortunately enough.
I should be able to drop by my local buddy’s house this Saturday evening for a quick 50-power-level game, which should get my painting motivation up too. (He’s single, so is in the somewhat unusual position here in Japan of actually having a room free for gaming in.) I’ll try and remember to take some pictures.
