Well, I don't worry much! Maybe it is because of the summer, the weather is good and many people prefer to go for a walk or something instead of staying home painting. I am sure that from Autumn and then we will have many miniatures pledged xD

I'm kinda on the fence. Because of my crap photo quality (which I can't see changing) I don't know whether to make everyone squint or just to pack it in. Currently, I'm still forging on making my models. (he he, painting comes next.) But anyway, I'm happy working away on my VC.

Hey dont give up, we are here to help inspire you. A fully painted army is the goal isnt it. squinting works for me

I think painting has been slow due to the summer, I fully expect things will pick up the weather gets colder and people start spending more time in doors.

Painting picking up errr guess me and wife can practice painting with our toes.

Possible conscription of the children into painting, but other then that ya cant paint any faster. especially on things with so many details to do. (stupid graveguard and black knights)

I agree Don the cold with drive some inside to do more indoor activities, where with me it actully does the very opposite.

We are considering droping out of the tale, as we have many commisions and other things going on in life. We currently have most of the vampires done but need to put them aside to do a few commisions we got in. Plus we need to paint a hundred or so reaper models for the christmas season. gonna sleep on it and have our decision monday, sorry if this upsets anyone. But sometimes life gets in the way.

I may modify my pledge to substitute some of the imperial guard with the VC battalion I am painting, if no one minds. Also, I must apologise for my slow progress. My motivation in all things has taken a nose dive.

Unforently the commisions of yet two more armies and a unit of graveguard has caused me to need to drop everything but my vampires from my pledge. My commisions have to come first as money is always good to have to pay bills. Hope everyone understands.

Its all about the benjamins. If you being paid to paint then that comes first, I'm sure everyone understands. And you've already done loads! Good luck with your commissons :thumbsup:

Updating my pledge to a smaller, more manageable one comprised of my vampire counts, due to my motivation having taken a nosedive and the fact I dont feel like painting IG at the moment.
20 Skeletons with spears and command
10 ghouls (finished except for basing)
20 Zombies
Corpse Cart with Necromancer and Unholy Lodestone
A vampire on foot (yet to be purchased)
A mounted vampire (if I have time)

Today broke the camels back one could say. With the amount of commisions and changes with my wife's work. (she is no longer allowed to paint at work which she has done since starting) We must drop out of the pledge. and Focus on commisions we have to finish. I am sorry about this everyone but there is no way we can finish it. Unforetntly my army is once again on hold sigh.

23 Spearmen
5 White Lions

to this:

1 Maiden Guard
2 Swordmasters (Standard Bearer and Musician)
