I have, as yet, not even primed my chosen model for my painting entry, and #HobbyADD has already begun to cause problems. I started looking at resin bases for my entry…. and then the problems started.
“Ohh, they look nice. I could rebase all my Celestians and Canoness to match”
“Ohh, I use my Celestians as a command squad sometimes. Perhaps I should get a dedicated command squad together? I could enter the whole squad”.
“What if I got a new immolator for the command squad too? It could looks amazing as an entry!”
“I could get some casualty models and a large resin base as a little diorama!”
No. I have limited hobby time, and this is exactly why my projects fail so often – I get overexcited, expand the scope too much, then get overwhelmed and unsuccessful. One model, painted to the best of my ability – stick to the plan!
On the progress side, I’m between either using a Sisters of Battle appropriate base – with a fleur de lys somewhere about, or going more generic with a nice battlefield one.
Warmill are supposed to reopen today with a nice Felur De Lys base pack here http://www.warmill.co.uk/Fleur_de_Lys_bases/p814918_4370613.aspx
Gladius Game Arts have a nice line in Sci-Fi lab bases, which I think could double up nicely for a hospital vibe – appropriate for the Sisters Hospitallar. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/40K-7Tv-Bolt-Action-Wargames-bases-Science-Lab-x10-Resin-/271481651356?pt=UK_Toys_Wargames_RL&hash=item3f3591409c
Or if I just go more to match existing bases and my games table, I could go for a raised rock approach. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/40K-7Tv-Infinity-Wargames-bases-Rocky-Wilderness-Hero-Stands-x3-Resin-/271490615327?pt=UK_Toys_Wargames_RL&hash=item3f361a081f
