Alright, this is a general life problem of mine.
I love to start projects, but once there’s a bump in the road I tend to be very quick to abandon the job. I also tend to get distracted very easily. Eventually, this leads to some procrastination, and nothing really gets finished until there’s a gun up to my head or there is something tangibly at-stake (IE – ‘lose your job’ kind of stakes).
This also seems to be true with my recent hobby projects that I’ve had on the go since “Hobby-Funk 2015”. For example, Sir Winston (he has an official name now!) is presently stalled in favour of momentum on the Skitarii that I’ve latched on to like some form of lamprey eel.
Here’s the thing that’s killing me: He’s SO CLOSE to being done. All I really need to do is work on his weaponry and some of the armour plates, and I can focus on putting some decals on him. Base it, and he’s complete!
Naturally, at this stage, I’m not able to put the dagger through this particular project, I have to go and start something else. Don’t get me wrong, he’s looking pretty sick the way he is now. But I wouldn’t be the happiest if I threw him on the table like this, knowing full well I still had some work to do.
Enter the Skitarii. I love their fluff, and their approach to battle. It’s less about the casualties. It’s less about the conquest. It’s more about the gathering of information. They are fighting to LEARN. Awesome stuff. A full army of mecha-masochists. PERFECT.
Thus began the crusade:
I guess my hope is to get all the Skitarii stuff presently assembled all wrapped up before going back and finishing Sir Winston. Part of me really wished I was disciplined and stuck it out with Winnie before going nuts with the Tin men though.
Such is the nature of hobby impulses though, I guess. The fact I’ve got so much paint down in the past week or so shows that I’ve got SOME motivation to continue.
Oh. One thing I *did* finish was my Astra Militarum Tech Priest.
Anyways, I’ll post more pics at a later date, hopefully with some more COMPLETE shots. Cheers all.
