It has been the best of times and the worst of times.
I have been out of work for over a year. That is all I am going to say about that.
What did I do with the time. I spent some of it painting. This may sound strange, but I had to dig in my photo library to make sure have not missed anything.
Clash of the titans was in full swing. It was a friendly competition on Lost Hemisphere to see if each of could paint three 35 pt theme list before TempleCon 2012. I had finished BigK (Karchev), Sisters (The Coven) and I needed to do some more Skorne. Well, I had already finish one Xerxis theme by completing a dozen Venators and a UA. The New NQ had a Xerxis theme and I wanted to do that one too. I knocked out some A Tyrant Commander, some solos and the Karax I needed to finish it.
I was sitting there looking at Extollers, Ancestral Guardians, Karax and Beasts. I realized that I had everything I needed for a Zaal Theme if I could just paint a little more. I know I have said this before. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing! I knocked out Zaal and his unhappy buddy and dug out a dozen Immortals to give me a third Skorne theme list.
While all of this was going a whole bunch of people had agreed to build an Ashlynn theme list to auction off for Charity. Memory machine raise money for a local Alzheimer’s center. I painted three models for that.
Somewhere in that January I did three Chicken Jacks for Project Sisters too..
Commission stuff too. I had worked out a swap with a friend, I finished up Torch and two Magnetized Khador Jack kits just after TempleCon. The only picture I have are in progress stuff..
That takes me up to the middle of February. Fifty nine models so far.
