What did you do today.

Recently I have found myself with a lot of projects that I need to get done, some with a close deadline, others with a bit more time before I need to start to panic. At the same time, my work is getting busier, with less free time to waste on playing video games and so forth.
So I have decided to try and do a little bit of hobby-ing every day if I can, whether its reading a rule book, painting a shoulder pad or gluing some sand on a base or two.

This thread is intended as a motivator for folks who want to give themselves a little extra drive to complete what they are working on. The [name of month] Painting threads will still be used for completed models, or WIP pictures. This thread is just for a couple of lines of text saying what you did today.

To kick things off, today I:
Filed the mold lines off 23 Russian soldiers and glued them to some bases.
Stripped some paint off a couple of marines.
Applied a couple of colours to some epic scale miniatures.

How about you guys?

Finished up the green on a bunch of Epic-scale termagants and hormagaunts, as well as a hive tyrant.
Went to the 100-yen shop and got some colored felt for quick-and-dirty representation of trenches and razorwire for the same game.

gomen - couldnt resist. :D

Actually, I find if I aim to paint/hobby every day it just leads to stress. Some days I'm just too damn tired to do anything constructive (today being a case in point. Between the 22nd October and 12th November I get 1 day off. That was today.) On those days I find it does me much more good to just do what the hell I feel like, rather than feel compelled to do hobby things.

Not actually today but a few days ago. I got a large chunk of my Uncharted Seas table done. By no means finished, it will do for a game.

Today I finally got back to working on the manuscript (need to get the rules half done this month!) and played LOTS of Dark Souls. Then I met my wife for Chinese food and came home to play more Dark Souls.

I haven't touched my minis for a couple months now. *sigh*

Well yesterday on the public holiday I went to the Opera with my wife, for the first time. It was suprisingly amazing. After that I ate hamburger with rice and daikon sauce and enjoyed watching an episode of the Sopranos series 1 before base coating my 6 a day Prussians in preparation for this months big game. Then I went to bed and had some horrific nightmares (too many Halloween events this year.)
I am painting 6 a day so I can get 4 units done plus Commander in time for the end of the month. On my second unit now so should be ok.
