Choices, choices

I can paint, or I can blog.  For the most part, I have been painting, as has hopefully been evident by my lack of blogging.  I have generally been working on my models for at least 15 or 20 minutes each day, which sadly is not doing much better than treading water.  Especially since Sunday found me as the proud owner of two new TEPs for my Convergence forces, and my Bones II pledge arrived today.

I really, really want to open the Bones II and gaze upon the glory that is a box full of Bonesium.  I have promised myself that, in order to open them, the TEPs have to be done (well, everything but basing).  I'm painting them on the sprues, or at least the first one, which may or may not turn out to be a mistake.  The first is fairly far along, with the base metallics all done, and now I am working on the detail and secondary colors.  I actually hope to have it assembled, or mostly so, by tomorrow night.

I've cut at least a couple armies and games out of my painting queue for AdeptiCon.  I might still manage to paint up a chunk more of my FSA figs, and I will probably take my (small) painted fleet, but I'm not planning on finishing anything else for them.  I might do the same thing with my Relthoza, since the paint scheme for them is ridiculously easy. 

I'm planning on taking more than Convergence to AdeptiCon, but I might not be able to play with much of it, since it won't be finished.  We will see.  I still have a couple of weeks, and much of it is probably closer to being done than I realize.  Everything realistically needs to be painted no later than Sunday, March 15, since that gives me a couple days to finish basing everything and get it all packed.
