TOPIC: Slowing Down?
#14978
Slowing Down? 8 Years, 6 Months ago  
Just Busy here on my end.
I have two session posts pics still sitting on the computer and haven't up loaded them, one isn't even written up.
Been working on taking pictures of all of the Sci Fi for the Tile Master, it's done except one thing isn't working have to fix it.
Trying to complete my Champions of the Force Set (missing 4 minis now, and trying to trade), and going to a few events for them (came in fourth out of about 20 in the Mass release), so things are busy.

Though i do have many plans for the Rumble thread, i have been painting Scenery for that as well.

I just did a cluster trade for the last four I needed. Assuming there aren't any problems with that, I should have a complete set early next week.

Now it's just a waiting game for Cavernous Rivers, War of the Dragon Queen, my Paizo promo, and Gencon!

Yukon you went for the Paizo Repaint Dragon? Is it a Huge?

I have been keeping a watch on WotDQ and got to say while it has a few nice dragons in it the set just isn't wowing me. I don't know why but there is very little in the set i'm looking forward too.

For some reason i just haven't been that excited about D&D for the pat few months.

RF* -

I was kidding around about the ping-pong and other stuff; I dunno what happened about 'slows' but I hope it's nothing serious. And I hope whatever it is, it's curable, and they are working on it.

Please tell Mrs. Fox that I didn't Really mean I was going to send p-p balls. Having once been a young son, I know EXACTLY what kind of mayhem they can raise!

See ya!

Yep. I even got a friend to pick up a second one for me. I'm a total D&D minis addict. When there aren't new sets to collect, I go after the repaints. I think we need a 12-step program for these things.

I posted a topic on one of the other hobby forums that I participate in called "Hit and Run Painting". I had posed the question, "How many other folks do this? You're supposed to be out cutting the lawn, building the pergola, and all of the other things on your honey-do list when you stop in for a cold drink and then you find yourself sitting at your workbench getting in a few brush strokes here and there..." I called it "Hit and Run Painting" (or building, or whatever other hobby/crafts technique suits you).

I've found that it really increased my productivity and I wound up painting about a dozen minis and two terrain pieces in about five days as a result.

The way this ties in to this thread is that now that Summer is here, we're usually out galloping across the state finding fun outdoor things to do so posting and hobby work slows down a bit for me. However, after seeing how much I actually got done after a few minutes of dry brushing here, a bit of priming there, I think I'm on to something new and wonderful and look forward to clearing out a bunch of the unpainted lead sitting on my bench these days. ;-}~

Dante -

Great Idea! And I'm not kidding here, you may have hit on a new way of doing ANY kind of hobby!
AND, if you hit the bench, whip through a few items, then head back out for the honeydo's, Her Majesty can't nail you for stopping Her List!

You realize, of course, that this theory could get you Canonized as the patron Saint of Hobbyist Husbands?

St. Dante; Hmmm . . . .

NAHHHH!

See ya!

I humbly accept your Canonization as the patron Saint of Hobbyist Husbands. Now back to work. ;-}~

I'm about to reveal the fruits of my looms. No--wait a minute... the fruits of my labors. Yeah, that's it. I'm writing up a two-part Workbench article on the most recent pieces I've painted over the past two weeks or so. I just need to finish putting together the web sites so I can reference links to pics for the writeups. Should be online late tonight.
