I found motivation!

Caeserean Centurion

Here is the Centurion I start last week when I couldn’t find the motivation to paint anything.  Thanks to everyone who gave me some tips about getting motivated to paint again, your advice was very useful.

The biggest motivator for me was the enjoyment of painting.  That’s what I paint for and sometimes having to mass paint, to produce an army, gets in the way of the enjoyment for me.  So I will keep looking through the miniatures I have and paint the ones I really want to paint first and enjoy the painting process.

@ Beccas, I agree that if I was gaming more, I would probably be painting more, but that’s not happening at the moment so I’ll just enjoy painting.

Caesarean Centurion, work-in-progress

OK, I’ve cleared up my workspace and found a miniature I’ve been wanting to paint for ages and there is no other reason to paint it, but to just enjoy painting.

I’ll keep you updated on the progress.

My first Caesarean Roman Century

My first Caesarean Roman Century


This is a work in progress of my first Caesarean Roman Century.  I tried using the army painter shading method on the first few, but really didn’t like the results I was getting and changed to a more conventional style for the majority.  I am struggling to just paint the core troops to a minimal standard and focus on the command and front rank more.  

The painting has progressed quite quickly considering I have working and have a new born baby to also contend with and I am really enjoying painting at the moment.

Let me know what you think.
