|Yeah it's still it's still a WIP... *looks guilty*|
So yeah OK, I guess after Games Workshop finally announced their new paint range my Sunday Sermon was bound to have a painting theme. I'll also fully accept accusations of unoriginality at this point, given everyone else in the universe is Blogging about the paint range too. However you see, this last Friday just gone I actually ran another Blogger you may have heard of, Von, through an intro game of Freebooter's Fate. On a newly re-sanded board, with new Games Workshop plastic terrain recently assembled and with unpainted miniatures. Completely lame of me, and not how I'd choose to 'hobby'. I'm going to have to be honest here and say that in recent months that's actually not been all that uncommon an occurrence for me personally. I could throw out a thousand and one excuses I guess as to why that is the case, but the truth is that lately I've just not been able to get myself into the right frame of mind to paint an entire faction for... well... anything really.

Because quite frankly playing that intro game with Von sort of felt like I'd let him down a bit, but I guess it's not just for him I let down, but also my good self as I think the hobby is such a visual experience. I used to pride myself on only ever playing games with painted miniatures, so I'd personally really like to get back to that sort of approach to my gaming. I don't expect everyone to paint like Ben Kommets or Angel Giraldez, but I do like seeing people with painted armies. I'd also really like to get back to playing my games on properly constructed gaming boards, and I have actually been making slow progress along those lines. I'm starting to see light at the end of that particular tunnel and I'm pretty certain it's not a speeding train. So what does all this mean for me? Well I guess it means I really have to pull my finger out and get cracking on with some painting. I've made a good start with my Maagaan display piece, and although that has stalled somewhat I have enjoyed painting him and I'm feeling my mojo come back.
