Whose wife loves them?

She found this bag and snagged it for me. I'm kicking it Old School now!

so I kinda blew the genestealer deadline. :-( May and April have been really busy months for me, with hardly any painting.


Well, those are done at least:

Two of them are on Reaper wolf minis instead of the WOTC plastics, giving me an even dozen:

All sealed and ready to rumble! Looking forward to fielding them.

I've got some sorta mental block or something

I stole 15 min to do the ink wash on three goblin wolf-riding archers (so they're done), but no more progress to report on the genestealers. :-(

Part of my problem is classic painter's ADD. I have so many minis –some older, some new– that I'm interested in painting that focusing in just one type is a real chore in itself.

The other issue is that I've let these Space Hulk guys languish so long that I'm feeling guilty about them and so that mental baggage actually creates a level of inertia about them. Silly, I know, but there it is.

So here's what I'm thinking: A) I need to make time to paint. B) When I sit down to paint, I will only work on ONE genestealer at a time alongside something else. That something else can be whatever I want, but the deal is I have to spend at least part of the time working on the genestealer while I'm at the table. I'll see if I can't try to put this method into practice tonight.
