All quiet on the painting front

I’ve been aware in the back of my mind that I’m a bit overdue for a blog post but the truth is that I have done very little in the way of painting since my last post. In fact all I have managed since then is to black undercoat my Imperial Guard Polish Lancers.

This picture of my work desk shows the whole sorry story – the six lancers awaiting a splash of colour (any colour will do), a handful of 15mm Fire & Fury markers awaiting varnish and basing and poor old neglected Poniatowski waiting for his name label to be attached to the top of his base.

My excuse is that we’ve been pretty busy with work and various family events plus the fact that we went away last weekend.

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

You see, there it is again - that Real Life thing. I have tried to detach myself from Real Life as far as possible, yet still the phone rings and stuff like that.

It isn't easy. You don't think it's all some kind of conspiracy, do you? The worst of it is that when I do get time to get on with something, I often find the necessary energy and inspiration have taken the day off.

Courage, mon brave

The more I look at your stuff...the more I like gloss

I know the feeling - I have been wading through the mire at work for weeks! Not enough hours in the day.

I am retireds and I cannot get time to paint. I have it all organised, paints , references, troops but either things intervene or one gets too tired and painting does require concentration.

Hi Roy - I know its a bit of a cliche but I just don't know where the time goes these days. Over a year since we moved and you and I still haven't had that game!

Then we must make a date in say May when the nights are lioght and travel is that bit easier. I'll get Stephen Sharp over as he enjoys 20mm Napoleonics
