If you've been following my blog for any length of time then you may remember my "6 Projects" meta-project. The idea was to document progress on 6 hobby activities that I had undertaken at the same time.
Having so many works-in-progress at the same time should allow me to make good use of time waiting for paint or glue to dry; if one project was stalled then I could just work on another one! Also, I hoped, there would be something of interest for most every reader in there and the encouragement thus generated would spur me on.
Well, that was the plan! For a few weeks, I stormed ahead and completed 5 of the 6 sub-tasks quickly and easily. But then I suffered the hobby equivalent of a breakdown and all but gave up for several months. Even my blog postings have been infrequent and sparse over this period, though I never stopped completely.
Well, I can now announce (finally) that the 6 Projects task is complete! This article is the last thing I do before I can close off that stream of hobby work. You can only imagine the sense of relief that I am feeling right now!
Remember these? I finished all of the first 5 collections of models in the meta-project many months ago, pretty much meeting my self-imposed targets.
The Last Task
I'm very pleased to say that the 6th and final task of my 6 Projects effort has now been completed. These are the Frostgrave figures for my "blue" warband and they are largely responsible for killing my model-making mojo. It's not any fault of the models themselves, but simply that I found the amount of detail on them to be somewhat off putting when I was feeling under pressure to achieve my various goals.
Actually, I finished these figures about 3 weeks ago. However, I then went away immediately for my annual summer vacation (to Galloway) and wasn't in a position to document the achievement until my return.
