Repaired my niece's Legion stuff, no pic because she wants to repaint them.

I appreciate the offer Joce, but I wouldn't feel right without giving you something back.

So... despite forcing myself to paint my Brets hoping once I get going I'll just get into the groove and just paint my happily lil brains out... Not the case I am afraid to report. Even 15-20 minutes later and it still feels like a job, even more so than my actually job. I refuse to let my hobby into a job so they have been shelved until inspiration hits.

Anyroad none of that is actually new so my point is I still want to paint and badly! You know you got it bad because you can't sleep because your brain is going over paint schemes and techniques you want to try. Since I have a lack funds I decided to paint my brush mug.. yes I am that desperate.. Its a rough blue/black/grey clay mug with a dragon in armour craved in it but it scratches the itch.

So.. I am still painting... just no minis. :P

Maybe wander a store and find something other than brets that inspires you.

I would love to.. but I have no money to buy models... if that is what you suggesting.

Inspiration is not what I am lacking... I have ideas for Menoth, Khador etc And ideas how to pull off making my constructs and stone part look like snow flake obsidian... But no extra money to buy models. I'm hoping MAYBE next month I will, but Summer and September are lean months for me since I work for the local School... and for some bizzare reason my first paycheck doesn't arrive until October.

Nah, don't buy anything. Just look around, talk to gamers excited to play. Gets me motivated.

With 2014 almost over and 2015 coming up hard and fast I am going to use my (probably) last post in this 2014 painting thread to reflect and look forward. I didn't do what I had planned to this year hobby wise due to a myriad of reasons that range from personal to financial. But I know things will change in 2015, first project starting in mid January beginning my troll bloods because they look fun, easy to learn if not hard to master, and I am finding Circle while fun and awesome looking a bit frustrating to learn with. Troll bloods seem the closest to Brets in the Hordes universe until PP ever decides to make a centaur race ( that would.be.AWESOME) with being mostly melee centered ( although they are WAY more diverse than Brets ever were) and they are the one army I want to get into that I *mostly* have a colour scheme figured out ( still deciding on skin colour..Non humans make that kind of thing difficult.)

Any road I was just wondering if any of you guys have plans for 2015 hobby wise?

Wow Soria! I hardly ever see you around but it is good to hear that you are still a part of this community. There are times when all of us need to step back from the hobby to make sure that other aspects of day to day life are running smoothly.

Trools look great Blue. The artist who chose the PP colour scheme made all of the right choices....

The blue trolls do look good.

I want to finish my son's necrons before the end of the year, and in 15, do all those things I didn't get to in 14 ;)

I vote pink, mainly because it is a nice contrast to all the blue they normally use. It might not be the easiest colour to use however.
Time will tell... Sooner or later... Time will tell.
