First Painting Foray into Infinity

You have no idea how much restraint it took for me to not title this "Painting to Infinity and Beyond". However, after my last post brow-beating the overuse of the Spanish Inquisition jokes, I felt it best not to. I do try and not be hypocritical, after all.

I've been fairly enamored with Infinity as a game for quite some time now. My favorite GW game has always been Necromunda, and with the release of Infinity a couple years back, I got all giddy with excitement for a highly detailed skirmish game.

I recently was given the opportunity to paint one of the newer Tohaa figures, the Hatail Spec Ops, and jumped at the chance.

How Many Spanish Inquisition Jokes Are There?

I mean, seriously? It was comedy gold when first spoofed by Monty Python back in 1970, and it still garners a chuckle whenever I hear someone say at a well-timed moment today. I absolutely love the Spanish Inquisition models by Victoria Miniatures, and have come up with every excuse in the book to buy them and paint them for myself.

However, there is such a thing as a dead horse, and I do believe the blogosphere has severely beaten it to a mangled pulp lately with the upcoming Codex: Inquisition. You can't browse the interwebz lately without tripping over either a title invoking the Spanish Inquisition, or the oft-linked to models that Victoria Miniatures put out. Enough is enough, people! We get it, there is many an opportunity to coin that phrase lately, and will be next week as well…but please do try and come up with something more original? Your readers will thank you for it, trust me.

*steps down off his well-worn soap box*

There. That being said, let's discuss my excitement and modeling hopes and dreams for the upcoming codex!

What Bloggers Do, When We Aren't Blogging

 Does anyone else hear crickets?

Wow.  This has literally been the longest span between blog posts that I've ever had.  It has also marked the only month in over 2 and a half years that I've only posted twice in said month.  Typically, you will see bloggers start apologizing for long gaps between posts, claiming that Real Life(™) got in the way, etc.  I'm not here to do that, though it did spark a topic that is interesting to me, at least from an editorial point of view…

Just what do we do when we aren't blogging?
