Now all this time KFJ (Short for Kung Fu Joe, the man who does vertical pushups for fun!) was awesome and said not to worry about it and to take my time, but worry I did. For the most part I had completed 70% of the army but still whenever I thought about going to paint I was brush blocked. For the most part of the year the last few models sat.
Now as I said earlier, I had finished most of the infantry. What remained was the HQ's, the priest, and the penitent engines. When I first received them they were half broken from sitting in storage. I went about pinning and re-basing them while at the beach for a week of family vacation. Then they got broken. I repaired them and they got broken again after that. After fixing them the third time I finally got them base coated. Then I decided to paint the HQ's. Our league died down due to other projects and not feeling the need to work on the models, I put it off.
Occasionally I would get the urge to paint something, or we would have a paint night here and there. When I would go down to get started each time I would sit down and see those blasted engines staring at me! Everyone else would paint and I would accomplish next to nothing!
I finally finished around the time the new codex came out. Painting those three measly walkers caused me no end of self inflicted mental anguish. Every one knew I hated them. But now that I can look back, I ask myself why? It's only a model. Well, three models, but I had Monty Python on the mind.
So here is my question to the community? Have you ever started working on a model you just couldn't stand to finish?
The trash has already been talked and the challenge accepted!)
