With a BUMP!

Hello and welcome to Inso's World.

This week has been a fairly dour affair so I have had to take a deep breath and come to terms with a whole bunch of 'stuff' that has been building up for a long time.

This weekend is the first one for a good while where I have been able to just be me and not have any external forces acting on my mojo. It has been a welcome change and I feel all the better for it.

So... with a bump, eh? It had to happen eventually. Last year, in August, I started my Squat project. Ever since I have worked exclusively on it apart from three items; a RC model driver, an Age of Sigmar miniature (unfinished) and a single plastic Ork. That is around sixteen months of working on the same thing. Well, I have had enough of the project for now and am shelving it. I haven't given up on it... I just need a proper break from it so I am putting them away and will go back to them at a later date. I have made a note of my plans, painting schemes and additions so that when I get back to the project, I can continue where I left off... but to be brutally honest, I am burnt out on Squats.

So where does this leave the hobby?

Still in a good place, really.

Recently, I bought more Sharclon from Heresy Miniatures and guess what is currently occupying my work space?:

This is the second squad that I have worked on and both of the squads will get a couple of additions at a later date (heavies? Specialists? Who knows?). They will be painted the same as my previous ones and I am planning to add some decals to both squads (on their shoulders) for rank and squad markings. I reckon I am likely to use Tau decals but it isn't set in stone yet.

In addition to the Sharclon, I have another little project on the go... and it all starts with a little pot that normally contains a chewable tooth brush:

I'm not letting on exactly what this will be but needless to say, it is a very early WIP at the moment.

In other news, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a rather special bottle of wine this week... and thoroughly enjoyed sharing it with my lovely wife:

The clue is on the label.

Well... this is the last week of work before I start my Christmas holidays so it's almost time to batten down the hatches and power through! The light is at the end of the tunnel!

See you from the end of the world!
