Progress continues! I would consider my Strike team around 60% completed. All I have left is the shoulder pads, backpacks, heads and the DS8 turret.
I'm finding it super hard to find the motivation to continue, as I'm not used to painting miniatures this small and this many, and its proven auite the challenge already! And to add to the difficulty in finding motivation, my local gaming scene seems almost dead, even after the drop of 8th, so I'm having to travel to find games, but if that doesn't workout then I may lose motivation completely.
My local gaming scene appears to be very burned out from 7th, but on top of that, majority of the players are super competitive kinds of people, which really makes it hard to have some fun in this game.
I have a battle coming up this weekend. Its 2 and a bit hours to drive to, and the same from, but I'm hoping its worth it. I recently came into contact with an old school friend in the town I'll need to travel to, the one that convinced me to buy models originally in fact, and he tells me that his local club is quite active in 40k, so I'm really hoping this pans out well and gives me good opportunity to play. If so, I may make it a bi-weekly excursion with the wife and kid, to spicen up our lives a bit
that way, wife gets to see the changes in 8th edition too!
