Boris' Ramblings

I will blather on about whatever I feel like - but will be roughly focused on painting, gaming and other stuff.

  1. Keeping busy

    With work tiring me out, I was wondering when I'd find time to get much painting done - and to be honest I haven't, but I have done a lot of prep work.

    I've started painting two models for a tabletop painting tutorial for the next issue of Irregular. This will sit back to back with an advanced tutorial by another writer (*cough, WAMPER, cough*) with the same two models. The theme is Alien Skin, and after a very quick Twitter poll, I'm painting them orange. The not so fun part is taking ...

  2. Changes afoot

    It's a new year, and I thought it was time to take stock before moving ahead.
    I want to have goals for this year, but I'm not 100% clear on what they should be other than vagaries like "improve" - you know I like to be more focused than that ;)

    So to help me define my goals I set up a thread called Peer Assessment asking other WAMPers to feed back on my strengths and weaknesses as a painter. Yes, it's a likely scary allowing people to have free reign on commenting, ...

  3. On being a ghostbuster

    Yesterday I got a new job as a ghostbuster, well for an hour or so anyway.
    It was Indie Role Play day at Patriot Games, our local hobby store and I went down out of curiosity - OK, Jay wanted to go more than me, but I was happy enough to tag along.

    I got roped into joining in a game that had already started, it was called Inspectres, and is based on the idea of running a ghostbusters-esque franchise. Our location was obviously, Sheffield! The team already consisted of a financial ...

  4. Getting organised

    I've not been very organised about my painting for sometime now, but that's going to change.
    I'm going to not open the laptop when I get home to avoid getting sucked in to checking my mail, and WAMP. Instead I'm going to paint, at least 2 nights a week I think, Monday's and Tuesdays. Weds is for gaming, Thursday is for the internet and Friday is for hanging out with Jay and watching a movie.

    On my internet day I'm going to be more organised about my online time too. I'm planning ...

  5. Staying on the wagon

    It's been 11 months since I bought a mini for myself - and to be fair, the only ones I have bought were for Jay and my brother for Christmas last year, and our anniversary.

    In October it will be a full year without being tempted at Salute, Triples, FigureWorld, Euro* or GamesDay*, as well as local stores, or online sales.

    *Future events

    I tried this before (Oct 2008 - 2009) but that time around I had a caveat, I could buy minis if they were to be used ...
