Normally I'm pretty good at sticking to a project, as my completed forces below testify and I generally outlast my fellow gamers when we all sign up for something (we are NOT going to mention my Inquisimunda campaign or my Bloodbowl Stadium!).
|Space Marine Demi Company|
|Orc Bloodbowl team|
|The Gentlemen of the Realm|
|4 point SAGA Viking army|
|4 point SAGA Norman army|
|Gostello's Intergalactic Psycho Circus|
|Mordheim Dwarf treasure hunters|
|Mordheim Reikland Warband|
|Warmachine High Born 20 point Army|
|Warhammer Fantasy 1000 point army|
Even in my fighting days I found I could happily work on my fundamentals like foot-work and basic techniques far longer then my fellow fighters and enjoyed the application of these basic techniques during a competative bout. Of course I would rather be knocking guys out with Bruce Lee, Ninja-Monkey, Chuck Norris, flying Superman, spinning, triple axe kicks; but I was never one of those fighters.
Below are a couple of my old fights. I am the fella in the tank top. . . . .
I LIKE crossing off lists, I find the completion of (even mundane) tasks rewarding!
So whats this post all about I hear you ask (probably not). . . . . .
I think I have caught 28mm ADHD!
I LOVE all the blogs I follow but I REALLY enjoy bloggers like 7th Mordian and Goblin Lee etc who bang out completed army after army to a consistant level.
There are bloggers who probably paint single figures to a higher level (and are all brilliant to follow) but even reading the completed army posts is extremly satisfying.
I guess that is why I enjoyed BOYL so much, it was seeing ALL those madcap projects brought to fruition in one place.
The last couple of weeks has seen me struggling to finish anything, with far too many miniatures on the painting shelf. To add to the misery I sit at the painting table and find myself procrastinating about whether to paint or finish a piece of terrain or start building another one or start building a Witch Hunter warband or pick up a Warmachine solo or dab paint at one of several undercoated miniatures or start a kit bash or bang my head against the desk!
I have ONE miniature to complete to finish my brothers Dwarves, I have ONE miniature to complete to finish my second unit of Knights for WHF, I have 4 NPC miniatures to finish for 'The Battle of the Bulge', skirmish, for Mordheim and what do I find myself doing. . . . . .
opening the doors of the 'cupboard of doom' and thinking of starting another project.
Part of the reason could be there is nothing 'big' going on at the moment within my gaming circles and nothing concrete has been set for BOYL but the real frustration seems to be not the lack of Mojo but ironically having too much Mojo and wanting to see every project finished immediately.
