The corona pandemic has affected a great many of us and for a good reason. We have been told to stay inside as much as we can, only allowed out for an hour a day to get exercise and to protect the NHS. I have followed the guidelines as much as possible and remaining inside and away from others. I have now done this for six weeks and my saved funds are running low.
For this reason, I have decided to resume working. A lot of my trade is done through ebay at the moment and I have created the listings again stating that I will only be going to the Post Office once a week to post orders out. It means that I will also take commissions again as well.
Part of me looks forward to going back to work because as much as I love painting my own miniatures, I much prefer painting for other people. It doesn’t mean I will be abandoning the Blood Angels, far from it. It does mean I shall be able to build up the depleted savings though, and that is important.
Next week, I plan to finish the squad of Ultramarines I am working on. I shall also go through the shelf and see what I have in the house that I can work on too. The ‘shelf of shame’ is rather full and there has to be some bits on there for me to work on while we are waiting for everything to get back to ‘normal’ whatever that is!
In the meantime, have a shot of the Ultramarine that is mostly finished:
