So after many, many moons of lurking and watching I figured that I should actually join the Forum so I can interact with the amazing community that I have observed for so long. I also figured that after six or seven years out of the hobby, (At least on the actual buying and painting side) it was probably time to try and get back into it. Never one to shy away from a challenge I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone, join the forum and post a plog to motivate my incapable at finishing a project self to push forward and enjoy the hobby for what it is worth.
So now that the introduction is sorta over I'll explain my premise.
I've never been a 'strong' painter, a trait that in my earlier years within the hobby would make me cycle through projects as each month passed. This time, with a level of new found focus however I figured that if I keep my mind at it and continue to push I could finish a project and hopefully improve my skills with the comments of those who look at my stuff.
With this in mind I searched for something to do, and for the first time in a long time walked into a GW store. I emerged with the Dark Imperium box and the intent to re-create one of my armies from yester-year in fantastic Primaris form. I came up with a story concept to use as a theme and direction for the army, which in turn allowed me to work on a colour pallet and layout for them.
I then realised I put to much thought into it.
So instead I just started painting.
My test mini:
(Sorry about the blur, new camera, new learning curve.)
The highlights aren't sharp, company numbers missing and the weathering far from complete. However for the first model painted in years I feel I slight sense of achievement. It also gave birth to my army, a Primaris strike-force from the Red Scorpions that as I build I shall add fluff and story to make their campaigned feel make sense. This plog will see this evolution (Hopefully).
If you read this thank you. If not, well at least I have a place to keep motivated.
