Complete lack of motivation

So, the past couple of days, I have had absolutely no motivation to paint, assemble, prime, or, in general, have anything to do with my collection of miniatures in the basement.  I did the test colors on some FSA & Planetfall figs, and I like it, and it's not too time-consuming, but I can't bring myself to sit down and work on them.  My Infinity figs are still sitting in the box, and I need to get them assembled if I am going to learn how to play this weekend.  I have some WM models that are actually very, very close to being finished, but no incentive to sit down and do them.

I'll force myself to go down and do some work, and maybe that will get the ball rolling.

The problems of being an altaholic.

So, my FLGS is going to start some different fall slow-grow leagues in the middle of next month.  Right now, there are plans for leagues in Malifaux, Warmahordes, Firestorm Armada, 40k and Infinity.  I plan on playing in 4 of them.

Fortunately, I already have the needed minis for everything.  I can play either Terrans or Directorate for FSA, anything I want for WM, Combined or Ariadna for Infinity, and more than a couple crews for Malifaux.

But I would like to have everything actually painted by the end of the league, which is the hard part.  I think I need to spend some time in the next few days assembling things, and maybe really learning how to play Infinity.  And brushing up my Malifaux rules.

There and back again

So, I missed close to 2 weeks because I was at the Shrine of the Mouse, aka Walt Disney World.  Always a good plan to escape the heat and humidity of a midwestern August by heading to a swamp in Florida.  I love it, but I could do without the 90+ degree heat and heat indexes of 110. 

But, despite a SNAFU on the part of the USPS, I came back to some minis - some Directorate ships for Firestorm Armada, and the Revenant models for SAGA.  With summer winding down and the kids heading back to school soon, I am hoping to really get some painting time in soon. 

But first, I have to catch up on the lawn and the laundry.

Back from GenCon

I (sorta) just got back from GenCon, and boy is my wallet empty.  I did not buy everything that I wanted to, only because some of it was sold out almost immediately.  I did manage to exercise some restraint - I had a shopping list planned, and I generally stuck to it.  I'll make a longer post later today; I've only just woken up, and the coffee has yet to really kick in.
