A productive weekend not painting

I should really go and paint some models this weekend . . . oh dear lord!

The dining room table, on which I paint, clearly needed a bit of a purge. Possibly with fire.

There we go, that's much better.

This is, quite terrifyingly, all the miniatures that were lying around under other things on the table. At my darling wife's request, the plan is now to get out all the stuff I own which isn't painted to get a bit of a visual idea of how much of it there is.

There is probably an awful lot. I've already decided to try and cut down on the hoarding by getting rid of an assortment of bits and pieces I'm not really going to use in the foreseeable future.

My wife and I also went to a Magic Beginner's Night at Dark Sphere, and inevitably, a couple of small purchases happened. There is, however, going to be a "no boosters" rule. Casual Magic is actually really quite good fun, and I loved the mental challenge of working out how some of the decks were supposed to work.

Also, I don't have to paint anything.


  1. ha hahaha. I like to think of it all getting away from you. Draws attention away from my own plastic crack habit....

    1. I have actually decided to offload some stuff I'm not using, with only a little nagging. I will eBay next weekend, but am trying a few Facebook trading groups first and already have a couple of expressions of interest!

  2. Nothing is worse than the Curse of Unpainted Lead. Good luck freeing yourself! I've never found a cure...

    1. I'm just trying to get away from the point where I have several decades of painting to do...
