Thor’s Workbench: December 13th

I’m in a big slump lately with hobby stuff. I recently moved my painting area to somewhere that made more sense but at the same time also put it further from reach. Before it was in front of me constantly and now I need to make an effort to go paint. It’s like going to the gym. You take a few days off from it and you find it hard to go back and make time for it.

In an effort to motivate myself, and to expand the type of stuff I post, I’m going to start posting up my workbench here. Here’s the list of stuff I’d like to accomplish by Saturday because I have a tournament and would love to see this done for it.

1) Put the final highlights on my five Plague Marines and base them.
2) Finish assembling Chaos Rhino #1.
3) Assemble Chaos Rhino #2.

I aim to get shots of my Plague Squads up once fully completed.

I also have this guy I need to finish. I wanted to test out my paint scheme for Disciples of Twilight, my Chaos army, and got most of the base coat on. He’s further along than in the below images but here’s where he was last I actually took any shots.

I really should at least get some updated shots of this guy…

    I think it’s the season,  I too haven’t done shit.  

    • Could be. Winter is a lazy season for sure.

    I’m actually breaking out of my hobby slump right now. The Honour Guard project is really pushing my enthusiasm. That and the lack of a deadline for completion of projects. I won’t play agin til late February, so I can chill out and enjoy the hobbying.

    • Having no real deadlines is awesome. I hate trying to push for deadlines because I always feel like I’m compromising quality for speed.

    I am trying to get my work area in order and find a place to store my mek ork army. Then I am going to finish my Crimson Knights with hopes of finishing before the pending Tau release. 

  • It is tough around the holidays because there’s so much going on.  Also, I know you guys put a lot of effort into making the Standish Standoff as great as it was.  A bit of down time is to be expected after a push like that.

    Thor, it will be good to see you post more of your stuff.  As I’m unable to visit XRG with any regularity I haven’t been able to keep up on what you’re getting done.

    • I have a post scheduled for tomorrow that has the Plague Marines mentioned above completed and photographed. I still have some work to do with the squad but overall it’s close.

      I’m going to be making a more conscious effort to get my stuff shot and up here. The cool thing with my new painting location is it’s easy to setup a tripod stand and just take shots, which is what I did today.
