wanting something more.

Lots of small things have happened since I last posted.The first is that i realised I needed a more perminant workspace.Before it was a case of using whatever space was not needed at the time around the house.This caused my bits to become rather scattered.Lighting is another thing that crossed my mind so I purchased two day light bulbs.Pity that finding a lamp suitable for them did not cross my mind at all.So now I have two daylight bulbs and no lamps.Still they throw better light around the room

Lost in fantasy...first time in years.

I suppose its a case of mid life crisis,or just a feeling of something loved and lost which had been evading the air and my very being over the last 6 months or so.For the first time in years I feel compelled to pick up a figure and paint it.There is a bit inside which is like a child wanting to play.It's asking for me to rekindle part of my own childhood from decades ago when d&d ruled the roost,and runequest and warhammer first burst onto the scene.
