On the topic of motivation, as well as that of warmongers, I'd like to introduce to you someone I've met on Twitter...@PVasiljevic. A few weeks back, he challenged me to a 2-hour paint-off. The goal was for each of us to take a standard, 28mm table-top gaming miniature that was only primed, and paint it to table-top quality with a finished base in 2 hours or less. For any of you who have ever followed my painting progress, you will no doubt be laughing right now.
It took exactly 2 hours, but we both managed the task. I'm afraid that, even though this was not supposed to be a competition to see which of us had a better quality paintjob, I still found myself comparing. I believe that Mr. Vasiljevic did a fine job.

And here is my boring UltraSmurf.
It's not much, but I was still proud to have completed him in such a short amount of time. Too bad I can't say the same on the many other projects that I have in limbo.
Until next time, I hope to stay motivated to both paint and to keep this blog from gathering so much dust...
