A Half Century in the Making!!!!

I just got back from "holiday"- as my mates across the pond would say- in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of New York. It was a bit colder than here in Orlando, Florida.  And I enjoyed every single minute of it. This is the top of Rocky Mountain, near Inlet NY, looking down on the 4th lake of the Fulton Chain.  Nice place to reflect on turning 50. Yup.... the ol' Rednekk is half a century old, kids. I have officially reached "old fart" status, and I'm fighting it like hell. ;)

Now back in the sub-tropics, I'm back at painting minis.  Working on my Call of Chaos challenge for Bolter & Chainsword.  During my break, of course, I came up with some great ideas I want to start on.... but I went and saddled myself with the painting challenge beforehand.  I have to finish by December 15, which is achievable is I just focus on what's left.  We'll see if my impatience leads me astray.....

Progress on Harvey-Brent, the chaos spawn. Still a ways to go, since he has lots of detail...

Then, on to the two remaining Sentenels....

Working on all the fleshy gribbly parts first because its the messiest and most time consuming.  Once they are done, I work in the rust and chipped paint, then the bases.  They are complex models, which I actually built years ago. Its interesting to paint something you haven't done recently.

Now here's the problem(s). Kill Team. Ork Codex. Nighthaunt models. Awesome idea for a Great Unclean One conversion, etc,etc,etc.......   Once I finish the above models, can I stay the course and finish the 28 or so infantry models I need to finish for the challenge or will I get side tracked by one of the above.  I'm working on a Kill Team comic (more on that later- if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some of the first character sketches)... so the desire to build some of the characters is fierce.  We'll see how it pans out.

In the meantime, here's a deer.....

..... he really wanted my apple.

Cheers Ya'll!
