Last week I lost the joy, sculpting started to feel like a real chore. Now the blog, of late, may suggest that I have been idle since before Salute but I have in fact been ploughing on with my tasks. In the works I have:
Brits in KD Infantry
Brits in serge HMG team
Loads of new heads including:
Aussie slouch hats (flap up)
Aussie Light horse slouch hat with plume
Wolesley helmets with sun shades
Brody helmet with neck flap
Soft cap with havelock
Cap comforters and balaclavas
Bare and wounded heads
Various Scots head dress
Chasseur Alpine beret
Asien corp Seabattalion style helmet
German helmet and gasmask
So yeah, I've been busy. Along with all of that I'm juggling projects from three or four other interested parties and actually having to act almost as if I'm really in bussiness.
And then on Saturday I lost the joy and really couldn't face the putty. I sat and stared at all of the 'in progress' stuff on the desk and realised that I have absolutely no interest in finishing any of them, I'm just not interested. So I gave up. Sod it, it was the weekend after all. I took, as men in these days so often do, to the internet and started browsing around for something to interest me. Now, this is not some subtle way of telling you that I spend the day browsing for porn, if I had then believe me, I'd tell you. I have no shame. No, instead I was looking at my favorite miniatures and action figure sites and enjoying the various paintjobs, conversions and customs that had been put up for consideration. It was quite a good morning actually, I had fun and started to feel the urge to sculpt, not do any work of course just to sculpt something for fun. So I did.
I might even find a production slot for these badboys at some point in the future. If you recognise the inspiration for my Saturdays afternoon of entertainment (okay, Saturday afternoon and most of Sunday morning) then rejoice! If not then you are too old/young/mentally stable.
