Ok so the title sounds a little oxymoronic, but that is how I have been feeling and how life is/has been treating me. Hopefully things are on the turn, but it’s still a long path just now.
On the flip side, things are picking up on the painting side; thanks to a small Facebook group called Painting Oaths. The aim of the group is to help promote miniature painting, while at the same time rewarding the participants in a friendly monthly prize competition. Phil Millar the organiser, has with the help of many gaming industry companies got some amazing prizes each month. It doesn’t matter what skill level you are, it is all about the Oath you make each week; with bonus points for using the Special Ingredient which this month was Battle Damage.
So being an idiot, 12 days ago I signed up to paint some models for the April contest. On the table:
- Skarre, Queen of the Broken Coast
- Witch Coven of Galghast + Egregore
- Gerlak Slaughterborn
A total of 7 models in just under 2 weeks, like I said I’m an idiot *grins*. With just 4 days left, I have just 2 Witches and Gerlak to paint, so it is going to be close; but should have it done before the 30th April. Here’s Skarre, Selene (that my name for her ok, or I’ll forget) and the Necrotech.
