So, yesterday, I showed off some of the Basement of Shame. I have been trying to both organize it, and to cut into that amount of unpainted lead and plastic - by selling or trading some of it, and by attempting to paint at least an average of 5 hours per week.
I don't know how long I have been painting today (a lot of 5-10 minute painting sessions), but I do know tht as of noon, EST, I have put some paint on 20 models. Sure, a lot of it was painting Ork teeth, or the bags on a Warlands car, or working on the gears to a Convergence model, but the point is that, if I an get back in the habit of doing this consistently, then things will slowly, gradually, begin to improve.
I really need to get that habit going again - because Relic Knights, Robotech Tactics, and Wild West Exodus will all be here soon. And I really do want to get small forces for DeepWars, WreckAge, and Infinity. Those games may "only" add 250 models to what I currently have (and, when compared to several thousand plus, "only" really is the correct term), but visually, it will have a huge impact. I'd like to have a fair amount of stuff painted (or visibly in-progress) before those packages start arriving on my doorstep.
