A second squad of Marines are finally able to take their place in the "finished" cabinet. I don't know what it is, but I've hit one of those periods of not picking up the paint brush. I've have these waiting for decals and varnish and a Cryx Cankerworm (hopefully soon to come) looking for brief finishing touches for the best part of 2 weeks now. With a bit of luck the Marines gone will facilitate some impetus to finish off the other.
The frustrating part is that both pieces come are for forces that I can see the end of finishing. Eight marines, 6 Terminators and a Rhino (3-ish painting batches at a push) will see me finish my Space Marines force, and I'm only a handful of solo's/jacks away from getting my Cryx army to where I decided to stop.
At times like these sometimes the best advice is to step away for a bit. Alternatively, following the thought that "a change is as good as a rest" painting something fun that has no force building implications attached to it may be a good idea. Time for a pleasant rake through the Old School mini's box I believe!
