Ann’s April Challenge was a simple one, just get some outstanding crap done. What I like about a challenge like that is it makes me realise I am not alone. At some point we all start something which either never gets finished or takes a hell of a long time to get done. I’ve often wondered why this is.
Personally I think it is down to one simple reason. I get excited about the next project and move on before the previous project I was excited about gets finished. This was the case with this figure – Reaper Miniatures “Marise Greyshroud”. I had a few ideas for this one but then I got inspired by a bigger diorama and so this one got pushed back further and further until Ann’s Challenge came along.
Not a great deal to say about it. Purchased early last year but since then it has sat neglected on my desk gathering dust. Not an exciting piece (although I liked it at the time) and this is reflected in the paint job I think. A simple bit of base work with a couple of skulls added for further interest and it is now done as far as I am concerned. Not one of my favourites but if it wasn’t for Ann’s challenge it may not have got finished at all.
Looking at my desk I notice I have several other part completed figures. I really ought to get these done but I think I will wait for the next challenge!
