I hadn't used any of the Army Painter line until just recently, and am enjoying them. :::cheers:::

May 6th: got my FIFTY Army Painter paints and washes and stuff in the mail as well as a new painting. Did some work on Chaos cultists from a 40K set a few years old.

Yep, I bought a starter set many years back now with Chaos cultists in it, and have never gotten around to doing them.  Great models, can hardly wait to really do up a Chaos army, most likely Word Bearers.

I've seen the AK "puddles" stuff and have been tempted.  It reminds of large puddles after a rain storm in the mud.

Just recently purchased the AK water and swamp resins, but for scenery pieces, although they could be used on bases, too.

My afternoon will be centered on hobbying time.  Trying to  keep things balanced though.  Not easy when hobby time is so enjoyable, except if I'm not careful, and only did hobbying, I'd lose all sense of reality.

While I enjoy seeing models, I am also curious to learn more about that walking stick.

May 15th: did a test on an offcut with some staining. Did not go well. I might have to fill in the cracks with resin, as well.

May 16th: found a good stick during a 2.5km (1.5mi) walk. Went home and removed bark on the new stick before setting it apart to dry.

This should be the GP and Syphon Hobby Club because we're the only ones partaking most of the time.

This thread was started in August of 2020, and coming off another 100 Days of Hobby effort by posters like Artoban, Realjuan, Padre, Rowsdower, Midaski, Zygmund, SKS, Novogord, and myself.  The idea of having a 3 day per week hobby club happened because two of those gentlemen were doing a minimum of 3 days per week, and it seemed like a good target for folks to aim at as a way of keeping their hobby stuff moving along.  Unfortunately we rarely see half of those giants any longer, and the other half are still around, some more than others.

I was fearful that this might have become more of an effort for me to keep track along the way, although that hasn't been the case.  I wonder if some aren't partaking because Syphon and I keep putting up almost every day recently.  My streak of days has extended well beyond the initial 100 for 2022, and I'm feeling ok about that continuing.

It's good to have at least one other moving their hobby along like myself, and I am grateful for Syphon continuing to stick to this effort.  It does seem to make it easier to keep going on just about anything in life when there is another person walking the path alongside.

Pictured: GP and me, colourised, circa 1852.



I treat this thread exactly as it was intended to be used. As a stick behind the door, as we say here, to create an obligation to post here.
That said, I didn't do as much as I'd wanted today, because I had an incident and had to get patched up and get a tetanus shot.

Still, before that happened...

May 17th: I applied some staining to the second walking stick. If I can be bothered, I will put some pictures up in my blog tomorrow.
