It's a bit sad...the end of a long term project.
« on: November 29, 2011, 03:04:56 PM »
Whether you are an army collector, a sculptor or even a champion painter, there comes a time when you near the end of a project that you have worked on for a long time and you suddenly realise...'it's going to be finished!'

I find it particularly applicable to my army building habit because I can take years to build an army from beginning to end and when things near completion you start to realise that the project isn't going to be part of your life any more.

I have finished armies before and have been really pleased with them but when they are done, you have to find something to fill the gap...and it isn't always easy.

I am going to miss my Grymn Tunnel Fighters and I have just realised that I don't have very much to do before the army (in all of it's glory) is complete.

Yes, it frees me up to finally get to grips with my Urban Grymn but chopping the heads off all my Grymn has become quite a habit!

Am I the only one who waxes lyrical when a project nears the end or are you lot just glad to see the bag of those big projects?
The light at the end of the tunnel is just someone with a torch, locking the gate.

In my experience you're the only one who gets remotely close to the end of them

Seriously.  When I get to the end of painting any of numerous armies I'm working on, I'll get back to you.

Mad props for your dedication.   :notworthy:

How can it be finished when there are more Grymn yet to be sculpted? Walkers to come, flyers, vehicles...

There is no end...

:metoo: however it's debatable whether the vehicles flyers grave bikes etc will materialise in this life time or the next...  I'm off to become a hindu and prey for reincarnation...

miaowww.........lol!.........the walker is being cast in resin, your probablility of getting other vehicles is probably greater than Sean getting a Dragon!
A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.
