Every Store Needs One turns 3 and I turn....none of your business!

So here we are. Another birthday for me means my blog is another year older. I don't post anywhere near as much as I used to, or as much as I would like to for that matter, but still here. Unfortunately for the blog as goes my hobby time (or free time in general) goes the blog. I could have given up on the blog long ago, but I like having it out there and sharing with anyone who is interested when I do get some work done.

This blog gives me a place to put my thoughts as well as my projects out there for anyone to see. At times its rambling mess, but I hope that at other times there is something here for you all to enjoy.

I would love to say I plan on posting more in the future, but there is not reason lying to myself or anyone else who stops here. I have had some major changes to my life the last couple of years and school and a 9 month old boy, free time is at a premium.

On my desk right now are my Eldar. The new codex has given it some new life, and in turn I am trying to give it a new paint job. Things are going good now, and I hope to have some more WiPs for you.

The one thing I will say is thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read my posts and look at my minis/projects. Hopefully I can get some new stuff up for you all to take a look soon.

Thanks for reading.

Eldar Re-Paint WIPs

     My hobby time the past two years has been extremely limited. My decision to return to school as well as the birth of my son have cause quite a drain on my free time. That is probably the number one reason why I have had limited activity on this blog. This summer I decided to take a break after 2 full years (summers too). That should allow me more time to paint and hopefully put some stuff up for you all to look at.

     So, with the recent release of the Eldar codex I have enjoyed working with that army again. We have a saying locally "I don't paint like that no more.", and to some extent that is true. I am not trying to say there was anything specifically wrong with how I used to paint in particular how I painted my Eldar, I have just learned skills and techniques that will make painting new models much easier and reach a better result.
