May Painting

Rough month for painting this May...

I had it all: personal problems at home, traveling for part of the month, busy month at work, you name it!

On top of all that, I had the one dreaded problem we all face from time to time, Painter's Block!

Whenever I did have a few minutes to sit and paint, I tried, but stared blankly at my troops. Grr...

By the start of this weekend, my tally of painted models stood squarely at "zero." Fortunately I managed to get some last minute inspiration and painted up a few ECW troops that had been sitting on my desk since last month.

I still failed to hit my goal of 10, but 7 is a lot better than 0! I painted all of these guys over the past 3 days. They are not great but once they were flocked and on the table top I couldn't really tell the difference between them and the last batch.

Also painted up a preacher. After reading the Donnybrook rules more closely I actually can't use him in my list... but I'm sure I'll figure out something to do with him!

  1. Painters block.... I know exactly what you mean...
    However the cure for me is always a good game with a set of rules that work and suddenly the need for shiny new reinforcements gives me that extra nudge.
    The ECW chaps are looking pretty good, better luck next months.
