Editorials, Showcases and Competitions

Hey everyone, I've been gone for a few weeks - work, some well deserved vacation and a case of annoying sickness had me caught up with personal life issues. Which doesn't mean I've stayed away from gaming and what's more important: Painting! So here's a quick run down of what's been going on, what I painted and a few teasers of what you can expect in the next two weeks.

First of all, welcome to a new part of the blog - the editorial. I'll use this to write about my thoughts on hobby-related stuff, gaming and all the other fun ramblings that make a great opinion piece.

As I mentioned above, the last few weeks have been crazy busy, but I managed to sneak in some painting time nevertheless. It's my own variation on meditation, you could say - I'm way more relaxed and down to earth after painting for a few hours at a time. It's my heart of stone, my jedi meditation.

I also needed to paint, because, as you might remember, I had joined Data-Sphere's painting competition for Q3. Unfortunately there won't be any elaborated tutorial piece on my version of Machaon as PanO medic - I just didn't find the time to take enough pictures. Still, I managed to get him done for the final voting and once again took third place. Where's the pictures, I hear you say. Right you are, here we go:

I'll also add him to my CoolMiniOrNot profile in the next few days. If you feel like voting for him, please do so. 

But Machaon is not the only mini I painted in the past few weeks...here's a little teaser on another showcase I'll do next week:

And there's even more to come. Why's that? Because yours truly has been to Spiel 2016, where I bought a lot of goodies. Fans of Infinity, Dungeons & Dragons and SAGA, keep an eye on this space!

So, this is it for this Friday night. Next up will be the showcase for Joan around Tuesday next week.
