I painted a thing! It has been a month and a half since I last finished a model, which is a lot longer than I thought it was when I started this post.
I started this second Renegade (Thing 2) right after finishing the Mangler but almost right away I lost my hobby mojo and he sat on my table, unloved, for about 6 weeks. This weekend though I was watching MLG Providence on my computer and I started painting him during the breaks between games. Without even realizing it I had the model 90% done on Sunday afternoon and I did some detail work and basing to finish it off on Sunday night.
Now I've got a solid battlegroup for Magnus and can get stuck into some of my Merc infantry.
