Painting Competition

It is a new year and my life continues to move forward preparing for the 2011 Gathering in the Desert Independent Grand Tournament.  I finished my entry for the single model painting competition.  I posted a picture of the this model after I did all the conversions now it has some paint on it.  I am happy with the way it turned out however I am not sure how it will do in a competition.  I am a table top painter and still need to work on some of my painting skills.  Next I am going to work on a way to display the model, just not sure how I am going to do it at the moment. 

As far as my goals go for this year I am going to keep them real simple.  I am going to just continue painting my models.  I am not going to restrict myself from purchasing models or getting rid of models I have already purchased.  My goal this year is going to focus more on scheduling my time so I can get more painting done.  Painting my LotR models has really inspired me to get more done and I have developed some great habits during this project.  I have been painting 4 nights a week for a few hours.  For me this has created a good balance between spending time with my wife, playing games, work and getting things done around the house.  Its all about balance in life and I really just want to reinforce my new habits throughout the year.  After I finish my display board for my LotR army the first painting project will be working on my Old West stuff.  Any other project beyond that will depend on what I am playing at that time.  I hope you all have a great 2011 and I really appreciate all the feed back everyone has be giving me and thank you for visiting my blog page.
