the WTF am I doing post

First let’s get this out of the way, I am not a Pro, I feel that currently, my hobby skills involve far too much swearing for that to even be a consideration in the near future. I don’t know what I’m doing really.

Trust me this will become apparent. What I am trying to do with this site is more of a diary/journally/documentation thingy.But wait, there are more experienced, pro-type painty modelling youtube-divinity types that are giving out their tips and tricks for free… yes, I have no response to this. What I do have is a belligerence and ‘can sort of do’ kind of attitude. This isn’t a place where I am going to be handing out tips (yet).


More of a progressively less sweary journey to trying to be halfway decent at this hobby. Which I have come back too. And I am loving it, and surely that, my fellow mini-friends, is half the battle.

A brief note, I am returning to this hobby more than 15 years after I stopped, and it appears that anything I had learned I have since unlearned (via various means, mainly age and little sprinkling of alcohol.) At the beginning of 2018 my dog died, which was a bit of a kick in the balls. He had found us while my wife and I were working in Korea and decided to stay with us for 16 years before moving on to his next adventure. I am a massive fan of computer games, but that wasn’t cutting it on the distraction front. So, one day, me and a buddy walked into games workshop. This created an interesting ‘conversation’ with my wife… but that is another topic for another post.

I am going to keep it honest even further, I don’t know how to blog. Which, as a dyslexic, makes this whole project an interesting device to decide to use for my hobby, but I figured that as this is my first post –
jump in with 2 feet and lets get this started!
