Some new WIPs and something I found funny

I’ve been a bit lax here the past few days/weeks – I think people can understand why; life has taken a hectic turn. Keeping up with everything hobby related and blogging has been a bit more difficult. Juggling personal stuff and home-life had always been a task in itself and adding in a four-year-old into the mix has left me somewhat frazzled. That and adding a new personal project on-top was probably a bit silly!

Still, I managed to get another couple of models started last night. Much to my relief. I’ve been reading Devastation of Baal and it’s put me in a bit of a Space Marine mood. (My thoughts on Devastation of Baal will be on the Eternal Bookcase when I’ve finished)

As per normal I’ve only base coated and washed these models so the main colours are blocked in ready for layering up next time I pick them up – but my models do tend to stay in this state for a while before being worked on again!

It was nice to be able to pick up my Blood Guard again as it’s been a while since I worked on them. The Stern looking dude was brought for me – along with another – for a Wedding present nearly 6 years ago and aside from being sprayed red I’d not done anything with him. Whoops. It’s high time I worked on this army with a bit more dedication; so I’ll try my best to keep going with them seeing as I’ve got a lot of them in the base sprayed stage.


I saw this when I woke up this morning and found it rather funny.

Iron Halo Sun Protection!


In more personal news I am hoping to start a new fitness regime. I’ve realised that I am horrendously unfit and quite honestly it’s embarrassing. I’m ashamed of myself and how I look and how unfit I am and would really like to change this aspect of myself. Under normal circumstances I’d attempt to join a gym, but they’re all closed due to Covid-19 (Understandable) so will have to do something at home instead. I bit the bullet and purchased a fitness program last night as was going to start when the husband walked the dog – I’d already been out with the dog for my daily exercise allowance – but alas, doggo didn’t get walked and we painted instead. I’ll try and start on it as soon as I get some minutes to myself and I might try and make a record of it here somehow – it might motivate me somehow – or scare me off completely, not sure.
