Have more of a reflective post today. I've been busy the past few weekends sorting though the back catalogue of armies and bits and having a mass cut back. Some of this has gone to good causes such as that fiendish Dane Rasmus. Others have gone to model heaven also known as the bin.
Amongst the things I have been sorting I have found my inq28 stuff. These have languished for months as the sculpting muse has all but left me.

I had a brief return to form and productivity with Frostgrave. But of late I have been more at home simply painting.
I often look on blogs such as the Convertorum, Ex Profundis and forums like the ammobunker and see all the fantastic work going on. It will give me the urge to make something but its quickly dissipates.
I don't think I have the imagination or connection as much these days with the whole grim dark universe. Maybe its too long getting more involved in high sci-fi stuff like infinity or deadzone or maybe its me working on the again high scifi looking Tau for so long.
Either way the muse seems to have left me and I can do no more than look on the great work going on enviously knowing that the minute I attempt to make something I hit the brick wall.

You will see form the pictures of old models I have put up just how close they all are to completion, but I just can't get them done. My guess is they will have to languish in model purgatory for a fair while longer...
Rather negative post I know but its a topic that has been in my head for a while.
On a more positive note, with some Christmas money and a voucher given to me by Nife and his other half I made my first purchase of 2016:
bets on how long it will take me to finish, personally I'm thinking at least 6 months.........
