If there's one truism in the hobby of miniature painting, it is that the one way to keep painting miniatures is to keep painting miniatures. That may sound tautological, but when I decided to stop indulging in my painting funk I just sat down and started clipping and scraping and gluing and priming. And now I'm back up to speed with a good head of steam and eight Numidian archers on the painting table. My goal: finish the pack of 28 by the end of the month. Might be a bit too much, but I'm hoping.
I'm also still on track with my diet. For my two week reward I went a little big and bought two molds, the ones that now are making up the backbone of my new modular dungeon. I was thinking about what to get for my one month reward when Wargames Factory announced they were finally releasing their Imperial Guard greatcoats--I mean "Shock Troopers." DINGDINGDING! We have a winner. I've been admiring Colonel Corbane's IG army for a while and have been considering my own, and these guys fit the bill nicely. They're doing a nice pre-order sale and hopefully they will be in just around the time that I'm done with my Numidians.
