A clear out of the parent's loft led to be me finding all my models from when I was 13. The vast majority had no paint on... Suffice to say I decided that might be fun to give it a go. I'm now some 40 paints, brushes, buying new cool kits and generally obsessed with GW models to paint. Other day I picked up an Ork Stompa that could be a fun build in the future. Also had a drive out to Element Games near Manchester and Outpost in Sheffield - both pretty cool for different reasons.

I'm obviously terrible - but it fills like a skill curve I could progress on, to maybe dreadful at least.

Painted some more Walking Dead miniatures last weekend after not having done any painting for a few months and I'm really happy with them. Feels like I'm getting better even though I don't do it too often.

I broke my spine so plenty of time for hobbies. Just a tyranid homogaunt but feel like I've raised the bar for that mini - I find it hard not to make each better than the last, which takes forever. Will share when it's finished.

Had a bit of a clear out out the weekend. Got boxes of paints, brushes, modelling gubbins and miniatures from all different companies, including some much older GW figures from my studio painting days. Haven't painted anything for a few years and not sure I will again. IF the weather is fine come summer time I'll take it all up to the car boot sale. No doubt I'll make some wargamer/RPG fan happy with a bargain.

A few summers ago I bought a 1/48 scale moving edition X Wing in Taiwan (similar to the Gundam kits)
I still haven't built the thing and so I gave it to my friend who's super into kits to make it for me
This thread is making me ashamed I never did it myself now

Dis anyone jump on the Hellboy Kickstarter? Never got into a table top game before but the IP and the miniatures made me invest. The amount of stretch goals obtained also meant the fairly steep ask towards the beginning more stomachable.
