Stoppin' the blog

I'll be honest here... this blog isn't going anywhere
Even when I do paint something (very rarely these days) it sometimes won't be shown on here as it's such a kerfaffle.

I won't delete it as I can see there are some people who still stumble upon it in search of guides and suchlike I presume.
If anyone wants to know how something was done or something like that please just comment and I'll be notified so I can answer it.
Thanks folks, its been a good run I suppose. Thanks for the support you all gave. :)

Liebster Award nominations

So, after much thinking and searching I have decided upon which blogs to nominate for the passing on of the Liebster award.
The point of the Liebster award is to raise awareness for blogs of under 200 subscribers.
Here's my nominations:

Jomada Adventures - The quality and portrayal of the minis on this blog continues to astound me. Perfect consistency.

Blitzkrieg Brushes - A blog I recently noticed, I like the quality and interesting style.

Miniatures of the North - Some fantastic sculpting skill here!

Thank you to Erurainon for nominating me :)

Glorfindel, Lord of the West

'Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength.'

Glorfindel was always one of my favourite characters from the Lord of the Rings partially because of how Sauron's best servants were scared of him and partially because he's all-round awesome fellow. I hope I've done him justice in my painting :)

You may have noticed the face looks very flat, almost monotone, I wanted to almost entirely avoid highlighting of the face so as to avoid the stereotypical extremely pointed cheek bones that so characterize many a fantasy's characters. I am yet to acquire more snow so my latest models won't be truly finished until I do... but even without snow at least 50% of my models are unbased or unfinished, a fact I'm hoping to remedy over this winter season.

Thanks for looking, comments most appreciated

A return to the hobby

Wow, well this is a surprise. I leave this blog alone for centuries and I comeback to find I still have 16 followers and almost 20000 page views. That is INSANE. Thank you so much for sticking around even though I am such an awful blogger. My past year or so has been chock-a-block with GCSE's and AS levels, though I won't kid you; this was hardly the reason for my hiatus. I have been away so long due to a mix of preoccupation, procrastination, and disappointment in painting results. I more or less got disheartened, got fed up, started doing other things and procrastinated to myself whenever I nearly got back into it.
I can't say I'm going to be here as much as I used to be as I don't paint as much, but I'll try to get out at least a few models a month.

Also it seems I have even been nominated for the Liebster award by Erurainon who I find most inspiring both hobby-wise and belief-wise, so many thanks for that.
I think I'll need some time to deliberate who to pass the award on to seeing as I've been out of the blogging loop for quite some time

Thanks looking, see you soon! (a post is planned)

Once again I am very sorry... I feel like a terrible blogger
