Seeking inspiration through little green men.

Not that kind:

This kind!

As I've mentioned in a separate blog, my gaming motivation has been low for a while now. I've tried to jumpstart my creative energies by reading fantasy and science fiction, not to mention gaming books. I've started writing adventures and campaign ideas only to stop partway through. None of it has really gained traction.

So now I'm thinking of trying a different tack. Instead of what I have usually done –looking for minis to fit an adventure or campaign I'm writing– I'm going to paint the minis to spur the ideas. A picture is worth a thousand words, right? So how much can I get out of a three-dimensional visual?

So my very simple goal is to put paint to a mini every week. I have a bin full of Reaper Bones that are collecting dust. I don't even care if my rusty paint skills turn out something ugly. At least I'll have done something!

It's worth a try, right?
