Just a quick one

I was just looking at my blog and I thought that I really should get a picture of my painting progress posted, so here's a quick snap of the Starstreak Hydra on my painting station ...

Just need to get them finished in time for Blog Wars! I'm off camping for the long weekend, I'm planning on taking the travelling painting kit, so I'll be painting in the sun by the lake.  Hopefully, I'll get quite a bit done :-)

Have fun guys!

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.
