Since the destruction of my dedicated desk, all painting has pretty much ceased. This is despite the fact I have a small area to work on my computer desk. What's stopping me? Having a computer RIGHT NEXT to the painting station is enormously distracting; it just sucks away all my time and attention. I've known for a number of years that sitting at a computer 'narrows the mind'. I forget where I saw the article, probably in New Scientist. But studies have been done, I know that.
Anyway, long month no blog. I am having my 'nth' sweep out of miniatures to evilbay, and this time, for urgent financial reasons, I'm selling some old painted stuff from pre-lapsed days. So, this blog is a memorial to paint jobs I will soon no longer possess.
In no particular order, here they come...
Fantasy Zoat (1992)
Zoats, particularly the two fantasy variants, tend to sell for a few quid. Will find out how much a half-decent painted example will fetch. Painted during my 'bright' period: I had noted how deep and dark a lot of my early stuff was, so I purposely went a bit over the top. Towing the Citadel line ;p
Pink Horrors (1992)
More over-the-top colour from the same year ;p
Chaos Terminators (1992)
This is more like it. Same year, some hard red colour but altogether darker and deadly. This was the one and only year I painted with armies in mind, so I got some exercise in mass painting. Didn't really enjoy it that much, I much prefer doing individual characters, and I think I like painting chaotic and evil subjects most of all (go see my newer stuff).
Zombie Dragon (1993)
A paint job to match the John Blanche box cover art. Not great, not awful.
More, much more, to come, and go, never to be seen again...
