...aww, I made myself sad...
So, in a fit of insanity and anger, I made some weird decisions:
- I've binned all my GW armies with the exception of things I can use to make Ian's armies better (i.e.- Speedy Ork things, Dark Eldar for Adepticon, etc.).
- Bought some Confrontation (from the bin, oddly enough)
- Started scouring the internet for ideas, then subsequently started forraging for sticks, rocks and bark.
Basically, I feel that I completely lost sight of what I was doing as little as 4 years ago. I wanted to get better. I wanted to be off kicking ass in competitions. Instead, I got complacent. I started taking on commissions and starting focusing on "getting finished" instead of "getting better".
I should be able to do this: Examplez
But I can't.
So, I'm starting over. I have a painted army for 40K, Fantasy, Malifaux and even War Machine sitting up in Epic Loot's cases, so I'm good for playing. I'm going to take a break on my commissions whenever I get the current batch done, so that'll give me more breathing room/project table space. I'm going to go through every how-to, tutorial and step-by-step I can get my hands on and I'm going to practice. I will be able to make displays, do Non-Metallic Metals and free-hand better.
I will get better.
I know a few people are peeved that I abandoned the Bad Moons yet again and that I dropped the brand new Ogre army I was starting, but I had to do it for sanity's sake. Maybe once I get better I can do the Bad Moons how they should be done, but right now I can't get my head around the proper weathering of yellow.
Anyway, enough excuses. You'll know when this process starts because I will be documenting it through this website to try and help others improve as well; I just have to remember to start taking the camera home with me.
On a parting note, if anyone still has access to the old Confrontation Clan Uraken Goblins, please let me know. Those were my absolute favorite to paint and I greatly regret getting rid of most of mine.
