As the long ordeal of “the move” unfolds, I have found it imperative to get my new, dedicated nerd space into relative shape on the proverbial hop. I did this knowing that it would not exactly be in “good shape” for quite a while yet, but there has been something quite therapeutic about getting the basic layout in order.
Granted. It will take time to find where everything belongs, and I imagine that there will be a major revision or two before I genuinely feel sorted and situated but, in the mean time, I am reveling in the space, space, space. This room in the basement has no other purpose than to allow me an opportunity to exercise my hobby impulses, with another area for storage of all sorts adjoining. This might be quite handy.
And it has a sofa.
Low-ceilinged basement or no, I feel I’ve landed in the very lap of luxury. The dog agrees.
As importantly, this has meant a return to building and to painting –for the first time absolutely in months. I simply cannot wait to have a brush to hand once more. Will I have forgotten how to blend, to wash, to overbrush, and generally to trim all the little tricks that I have gathered in these last ten years or so?
We shall see.
Naturally, I have strategically situated a modest collection of my current favorite models to help me find inspiration and encouragement as I get back into the painting groove.
So what’s first?
Dystopian Wars – Compliments of Roberto Vo5.
And then some random Cowboys that I picked up from Black Scorpion Miniatures a while back… for the love. Black Scorpion has some lovely stuff on offer -very cool indeed.
These should be two decent endeavors to get me back into the swing.
