Just ignore me... this is self indulgent, self absorbed moaning about nothing and everything!
The net result of this funk is that BigLee's Miniature Adventures has been a bit quiet of late, and for that I apologise. Inspiration has been low and I have run out of things to paint - in the same way the women "have nothing to wear"! I have the usual lead mountain stashed away in various boxes throughout the house but nothing is speaking to me at the moment and I can't seem to get the motivation together to do anything. Which is why I need a good show like SELWG to buck up my spirits and reignite the fires of inspiration!
Young Padawan that so effectively demolished me in her Guest Post last month) as I continue her indoctrination in the Tao of Wargaming. I may be an embarrassing dad in public but get her in a room of other wargamers and hopefully she will realise I'm not that strange after all! I have been making a modest shopping list and am looking forward to seeing some great games (and maybe playing some too) and meeting a lot of old friends. And after we have finished inside the show we are going to hunt some Dinosaurs in Crystal Palace Park.
Now if that doesn't cheer me up nothing will!
When she takes a look around the Bring and Buy, gets a elbow in the chops, a smack round the head with a backpack a is nostrily assaulted by some smelly B*****D, she will realise that her Daddy .................IS exactly the bloody same!ReplyDelete
Well I have got to toughen her up.... I was thinking about bringing her to a game at the Shed-o-War but then I realised that when it is occupied by the Rejects it quickly develops its own micro-climate!!!Delete
Do you want some cheese with that whine, man up!Delete
WE all have dips and troughs in our lives and hobby as well. I am kind of looking forward to Selwg not in a I must have fresh lead to paint way but more a I will be back among my own people! I know that may seem sad to others but when you are in a hall fall of geeks and nerds I don't feel so out of step! Look forward to seeing all the rejects and every other self confessed geek/nerd as well!ReplyDelete
Look forward to seeing you mate...and I agree totally about being among like minded geeks. Its the only time I'm 'normal'!Delete
We all go through these phases Lee and you're sure to pull out of this funk soon.ReplyDelete
See you and the young Padawan on Sunday :)
Looking forward to it.Delete
An all-too-common feeling Lee. Here's hoping SELWG jolts you out. That or the PalawanReplyDelete
Hope you find your inspiration and you and the young padawan can stop by Crawley Wargames club for a game of stretcher bearersReplyDelete
We all have spells like this...I had mine earlier this year in response to some specific 'stuff' that was going on. All kudos to you for talking about it...not everyone does. Now man up and pull yourself together you big Jessie!!!! 😀ReplyDelete
A bit of geeky time out at SELWG might be just what you need....I'll be there too, spreading plague like coughs and sneezes among the crowd.
Lol. I'll have to wear a surgical mask to the show!Delete
Yes. Like the other posts, we all have those times. Something positive can come out of this. It would be interesting to see your 'wish list' for SELWG, and the subsequent purchase list. Not that I need more things to add to my wish list.ReplyDelete
Mostly restocking paint and varnish. And maybe some impulse purchases of course!Delete
Are you going to get her some of these Bad Boys? http://www.antediluvianminiatures.com/shop.htmlReplyDelete
