The last couple of weeks have been pretty shitty in modelling terms. Nothing has gone wrong on the painting and building side. The problem has been that nothing really got done! I am retired and in lockdown due to Covid-19 and some how still could not find the time to get any hobby activity in. Why was this? Well that is bloody good question to which the answer is Parish Council business.
In a mad moment a few years ago I agreed to get involved with parish affairs. I fell for the line “its a breeze”. It’s not. The last two weeks have been insightful to say the least but my term in office will come to an end by year end (well that’s the plan). Not because elections are due but because I intend to tell them to fuck off. If Covid-19 has taught me anything it is that life is to short to spend time discussing meaningless shit, especially if it takes needless time away from my hobby.
The good news is that I did manage to get this little chap finished. Over the last two week I have picked him up and put him down more times than I have been to the toilet this year. Now there’s a thought to leave you with!
The figure itself is from the 28mm Reaper Pathfinder range and goes by the name of “Ilnerik Sivanshin”. Now I do like Reaper figures as many of you know by now and this one piece casting had sufficient detail to be interesting. If I have one disappointment it is with the base. I was pretty happy with the paint job but in my haste to get something finished cut corners on the base. I think the completed figure was deserving of something much better. I’ll see how I feel about that in a few days time. There is always the option to try and sell this one on Ebay and simply do another.
