Closing out 2012 – part one


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.

ReaversI am not going to try to cover the whole year in one shot, no one would read that much at one sitting.  So I start at the beginning.

January 2012.

Karax 12Clash 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 TCalready 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.

MarkethI was sitting there looking at Extollers, Ancestral Guardians, Karax and HakaarBeasts.  I realized that I had everything I needed for a Zaal Theme if I could just Extollerpaint a little more.  I know I have said this before.  Anything Zaal & Kovaasworth 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.

ImmortalsIs that enough for a month?  Well, I had other stuff to do for TempleCon too…  I did some terrain work in my spare time.

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.

Someone had a birthday in January.  So I 2012-02-14_11-53-34_392did some research and found a Menoth Caster G’Day didn’t have and painted her up.  Does he play Menoth anymore?

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..
