I’ve been struggling with painting motivation for the past few months.
Work has been busy and when I’ve finally had time to myself, the idea of painting has felt more like a chore. As a result, I’ve done very little.

In recent years (possibly every year?), White Dwarf magazine has produced some sort of plan to encourage hobbyists to get their projects completed over the course of a year.

I’ve found myself recently picking up a paint brush again and like the hobby butterfly that I am, have jumped from one army to the next.
At the moment, I don’t have enough models painted for any of the armies that I could game with. As a result, it’s left me with a little dilemma, where do I keep these models?

It’s that time of year again when plans are made to be better/fitter/healthier people in the coming year.
