Hello and welcome back to Realm of Chaos 80s. I have been gone awhile (and not just from this blog, it seems) and I am pleased to be back. Since the unholy combination of work, work and more work has stayed my hand from the painting, or indeed collecting, table and I lament the terrible absence of any actual progress.
That is correct; I have painted nothing, collected nothing - done nothing!
In truth, I was in that downward spiral that all of us must combat from time to time. The painting lethargy that sees the collection gather dust, and with each mote that falls, a further decrease in the drive required to work.
Such woes, for woes they are, were further enhanced due to the destruction of my scanner, which paid heed to my idea for a picture round of my festive pub quiz. Still, I can save that for another year. ICT troubles weren't further, with the email account linked to this blog dumping loads of emails from fellow enthusiasts into the spam box where I failed to notice them. Apologies if you are one of the many who went without reply, I shall attempt to clear the backlog as soon as I am on holiday.
Ahh, talk of the holiday. As I teacher, I have over two weeks off over the festive period (starting 3pm tomorrow) and I hope to spend most of that time either painting, gaming or collecting. So you will be reading a fair amount from this site in the coming days.
So I rise, pheonix like from the dusty embers of my paint station to illuminate this small corner of the internet with old school Citadel goodness, or something like that anyway...
I knew that I needed something special to get me motivated, so I opted to restore a paint a model I have wanted to do for years, namely the 1980s Realm of Chaos Chariot. I bought one from eBay a few months back in a truly shocking state and I have managed to clean it up.
Here is what I have so far achieved...
|What are a kit! A classic Perry sculpt!|
|Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones!|
So I suppose, I better get gluing. Oh, and I have finally finished off my final interceptor for my copy of Dark Future, and I hope to get a game in before the end of the holidays. You can follow this on my Dark Future blog here.
