Oh my, has it really been that long? That’s almost a full month ago!
I knew it had been a while, but I had no idea that it’d been that long. Egads.
Well, the root cause of the radio outage has to do with an inability to find free time. You see, at the end of October, I had to go out of town for three weeks on a work trip. I had brought along some hobby materials in the hopes that I could work on them, but I really didn’t get all that much free time. I did make small glimmers of progress though, but it was hardly enough to justify writing blog posts about (and I wasn’t going to spend what very little free time I did have writing blog posts, as my time was better spent making actual progress!).
When we last left off, I was gathering up some characters for my Genestealer cult. My grand notion was that I would take them down, along with the rest of my unpainted cult models and paint them up during my stay. That way, when I got back into town, I could seal them up, dip things as necessary, and get to play my first games with my “new” army.
So that proved to be a little lofty, as my stay was only fruitful enough to produce a fresh coat of Ultramarines Blue (or rather Altdorf something-or-other) on the models, with a smattering of Bleached Bone. Realistically, I didn’t get more than an hour of two painting in for the entire month.
Hopefully you’ll excuse the poor quality photographs. That’s what life looks like when painting in a hotel room. In retrospect, maybe it was a good thing that I didn’t have all that much time to paint in such poor lighting conditions, eh?
But it is some progress. And though it’s not anything to brag about, this blog is all about documenting my hobby progress. Hopefully I’ll get some time in the near future to improve upon this, but for now, this is where I stand.
