Sounds like I need to schedule an appointment with a therapist doesn't it?
The truth is nothing near as worrisome. Sunday, after taking the WIP pics for my prior post, I decided to continue work on the beast. My desk is in our living room, so whilst I started hobbying away, my beloved Wolfy pulled up a Jim Gaffigan stand up routine on the roku to watch. We love his comedy, he's hilarious! Listening to him whilst using an X-acto blade and working on minis? No, not a good idea at all!
Pieces on the floor, almost broke a bit or two due to spontaneous laughter, cut my thumb, blood on the dreadnought (that was hastily wiped off with a paint smeared paper towel which was then pressed onto the bleeding wound!), gluing pieces to me rather than the dread (always a concern but all the worse when laughing) and uh...yeah.
I highly recommend watching Jim Gaffigan's routines, just not while working on minis!
Despite minor self-inflicted injuries and several near catastrophes, I think the project coming along nicely:
|New armor plating, search lights, and a tuning-fork-antenna-thing (aka: the bit I almost broke).|
|Additional hoses and hand holds (the latter of which may help in maintenance, but probably are a bad idea in close combat situations...). It looks good though.|
|Feet, rocks, and wargear liberated from the enemy (loyalist or traitor...it really doesn't matter to the Alpha Legion).|
|An approximation of the forth-coming finished product.|
The heavy bolters' ammo belts were attached as well, though I forgot to take photos of that. I'm almost finished painting my first Alpha Legion Sgt., so with that minis' completion (which is something of a nightmare that I'll discuss later), I'll start the painting of this one.
