I finished my Korean Proficiancy Exam. However, I found my orks that I was storing here while I am studying in Canada and have discovered a need to get my speed freaks painted. I will be switching armies to my orks. I will be painting a weirdboy and hopefully finishing it by the end of the month.

Wow, with the new allies options, I guess this competition has been opened up a bit. I might be doing an HQ and Troop from one of my battle brothers for the last two months.

I love my new daughter to bits, but she's been putting a crimp in my painting schedule.

Now that my life is being led on the whim of an 8 week old infant, finding time to paint is bloody hard, but after the third month of trying I finally managed to find a spare moment or two to get these guys painted. Hopefully I can get back on track from here on in.

Been dere. Done dat. Don't fight it, KF.
Consider the painting a special treat and pace yourself to enjoy the treat.
Daughters don't stay 2 months old very long and now is the time when you set in place the seeds of your relationship with her. Enjoy it.
We will be here, still painting lil' plastic space/fantasy dudes as you have the time.
Enjoy the cup of tea while you watch her sleep. Somehow it makes it all seem right.

You can paint models when she is out on her first date......

Going to have to use up first RL card for this month. Work, kids, ... new driveway ... Not a drop of paint on the A-barge.

On the positive side, at least I'll have it primed for next month!

+1000!

As a side note, I didn't get all 20 Empire handgunners finished. I had, er, primer issues. The second 10 will ber painted in Nuln livery as I have a functional can of black primer, but they won't be done this month.

The finished group:

unfortunately, about a year ago i screwed up the nerves in my hand, so when i hold things like a spoon or a pen for a long enough time my hand starts hurting and falling asleep, when it comes time to start painting my army I'm going to have to figure something out.

Unfortunately, I'll have to pay a real life card this month. Stuff looks great though, everyone!
