I really want to play Numenera. So much so that I`m considering running an online game with random people.

At this point Thursday could be good. Were noodling around with a Fantasy Hero game for Thursdays.

Although I should know better I let a lack of proper backups sideline me while I recovered my computer.

An oil wash to bring out the details and these guys are close to done. Time to start painting the warcaster that came in the box so the oils can cure.

Yes, I am going to add material to the base to make it look like grass.

Sprayed them with red yesterday and then scrubbed, scrubbed, scrubbed with a toothbrush to get the liquid mask off. I was pleasantly surprised by how tough these Golden High Flow Acrylics are. Sure, it made getting the masking off tougher but is otherwise excellent. I sprayed yesterday so the paints have almost cured for 24 hours.

Finally broke down and bought some Warmachine. Still had Vlad's shoulder pads but there's an active community at +The Kessel Run, Cards, Comics and Games​ so I figured why not. Airbrushed so far a preshading undercoat, some "primer" green and then sponged on some liquid mask. Next step will be a little more preshading followed by the red.

That's a big question... short pertinent answer: nothing tabletop wargamingy. I like the idea of tabletop wargaming but in practice I've always balked at the level of commitment required. Mostly I play pretty much whatever board game has been brought to the table (most recent game was Dominant Species)

It feels like forever since I've sat down, brush in hand, to paint a miniature. A couple of hours later I was surprised to find a fully painted miniature.

So obliviously I don't know how to weather models with oil paints and now I have a headache. Time to take a break and Google. Protip: Odorless thinners still have toxic fumes. I'm composing a blog post about this and other hidden dangers but even having a fan blowing air across my workstation positioned between two open windows I noticed the smallest beginnings of a headache.

The Khador Juggernaut carries an ice Axe which freezes opponents on a critical hit. I wanted to try giving it a frosty effect so I thinned a pale blue with matte medium and my thinning solution. I had to shoot short bursts from my airbrush because my nozzle is too large for such a thin mix. I built up the color slowly but when I was happy with the result I lightened my mix with white and highlighted the corners. My tablet camera doesn't do the effect justice but I am happy with the result.

It is difficult to see with the glossiness but I've added globe of gunmetal to the chips and did some quick edge highlighting on the red. Next will be green highlights. This is my first miniature I am painting wholly with my new Golden High Flow Acrylics and they are super glossy. This is gold as long as my matte varnish is up to the task.

I am not sure if I want to continue working on both 'Jacks in parallel or if I want to concentrate on one. Airbrushing, masking, de-masking, these are more efficient when I do both together. Edging the red was certainly a single session task. I think the green will be faster so in parallel it remains.

Darn, forgot to add the image. Warmachine Khador Warjack. This green is going to only appear as chipping.

Do you follow Wil Wheaton's blog? He also copes with both depression and writer's block.

Also, when I'm feeling depressed about writing is to look closely at how the sausage is made. First drafts are ugly so anything I can do to remind myself that my first draft sucks because all first drafts suck, and not because I, personally, suck, really helps me move past sticking points.

Also good is changing your style. It you write without planning work up an outline. If you heavily outline, put it aside for a little bit.

I lightly read this blog. But it's more complicated than that. What I suffer from is motivation loss. I literally can't get past he blank page. It's all in my head and I'm stuck there, unmotivated and depressed because I'm unmotivated.

Was aware of all except the last one mate, which was actually quite interesting. Like you say, get educated. Cheers for putting that together, I just learned something I didn't know in 30 years in the hobby.
