Back in the Saddle


Well, it's been a fantastic week so far, I've had a well deserved week off from work which has been jam packed with a long weekend away with the nearest and dearest, various family days out and even some hobbying.

So, you could say I'm back in the saddle. Painting is coming along nicely with Harkers squad and one of the Starstreaks getting attention. I'm finding that I've got to relearn to paint again, I suppose I should expect it considering I haven't picked up a paintbrush in almost a year. What skills I had are slowly coming back to me although I have a feeling that these guys aren't going to be my best. Hopefully, it won't be long before I'm painting as well and as fast as I was before.

I've also managed to get a game in against my mate Mike, the Corbanian 1st were victorious against his Space Wolves, so I'm taking it as an good omen. What I did realise is that I've also forgotten quite a lot of the rules for 40k and my Guard, so I think it's time I dugout my MES (multiple edition syndrome) treatment book.

So, I'm definitely back in the saddle now, hopefully I'll be up to speed for Blog Wars in June.

Nice, mate! Good to see you got your drive back after all. I've been painting a lot too last couple of weeks after two months of inactivity. Good luck with the rest :)

Welcome back, and congrats on picking up a win against the rout! Can't wait to see Harker and co., don't worry, picking back up the painting is like riding a bike (so, one false move and you end up in a heap with red everywhere). Hah!

@Antipope - Cheers mate, it's slowly coming back to me :-)

@Davetaylor - Thanks mate, I'd forgotten how much I actually enjoyed it.

@W39999 - Thanks matey

@Gotthammer - Cheers mate. Yeah, I've noticed that as well, seems quite a few have dropped off the radar. Suppose that makes us the dinosaurs ;-)

@Mordian7th - Thanks mate, the win certainly helped put me in the spirits for getting them done. Hopefully, I can keep the red to a minimum :-)

@ColHessler - Thanks mate, I'm hoping the same mate.
