Well it is still not snowing in Denmark. Weird to be into December and not a single snowflake. Not that I am complaining, it does make travelling easier without. We have been crazy busy at work the last couple of weeks and this coming week will increase in the madness. More discount ! On the brighter side of things, contract with the new place should soon be in place!
Remember my stalker Christian? Well we made a little carepackage for him and some things for his lovely girlfriend too. Started out being bits for gaming that I had lying around. Ended up being a full set of miniatures from SPACE CRUSADE and a box of goodies sent to Germany. And then...We recieved a package from them the very next day! I will not list everything, but here was soap and earrings for Lone, a pug jug (also for Lone though I argued that a bit!) tires for use in my post apoc scenery and these:
Yes...That is the original Mutant cronicles from 1993 with full set of miniatures and in a great condition! Sure brings the nostalgia on!! Oh and I made a good deal on some bits, a small parcel from Hasslefree which I had ordered arrived and so did the scifi xmas box from Mantic games! So hobbywise I have had alot of stuff arriving, but not much time to do it in.
Painting mojo hit me though, as I opened the box from Mantic games. Some forgefathers (Squats lookalike) and their big gun. And within 2 hours this happened:
Far from finished but good going so far I think. There was another batch of those 5 foot models. They have not yet been assembled. This will be a speedpaint project. As you can see from the uses of wash. But I actually like the orange and beige colours. Nice change for the gloomy earth colours I usually use in my post apoc miniatures.
I might not post again untill the New year. Need to use the time I have to power down. Stressful period on several levels. Not to fear though, the blog continues! With all the projects I have going there is an endless supply of stuff to put up.
I hope you all take care of yourself and your family. For me xmas is the feeling of coming together. Enjoying the company of my family. Which I do. But it can be terrible stressfull so please remember to breathe deeply once in a while. Sit down with a cup of tea/coffee/mead/port and just do...Nothing.
