After thinking about this for a while, I have decided to change my focus a bit, and finish projects solely for selling them, as this seems to resolve several issues which I’ll outline below:
- I still love to research, buy, paint and photograph wargame units and post them here, and will continue to do so as I always have.
- I will get to finish all the projects that I want to, but won’t need to store them anywhere.
- I will get spending money from profiting from selling units (as I have been doing successfully for a few months now!). This is especially important as I will transfer to a four year university to study there full time in order to finish the final two years of my undergraduate chemistry program; “soldier money” is likely to be less available as I will both work reduced hours and commute over a longer distance.
- Finally, I will have much more flexibility with which projects I can work on. For example, I got to tinker with Flames of War figures recently with no pressure from myself to buy opponents or commit myself to making a long-term project of them.
Anyway, I hope I haven’t bored you to death; I thought that a serous update was overdue. Regular “soldier stuff” will be posted from here on out :D
Here’s my latest finished unit as mentioned above: a Flames of War, Late War, SS tank hunter team. I got these off ebay with some really nice urban bases and figures both made by Battlefront, I believe.
I had a lot of fun painting them: the detail is nice enough to make them satisfying, but they’re quicker to work with than 20mm (no worries, I’m still madly in love with 20mm, and hope to be back very soon).
Thanks, as always, for looking!
