There is a whole world out there

I can't believe that it has been so long since I last posted. I have not been comfortable painting for a long time. Turns out I was growing a really professional set of cataracts and just flat couldn't see. Two weeks ago, the first surgery took place and the results have been weird, exciting and incredible. I picked up a 10 mm fig last night and could actually see the detail on the little guy's face. I picked up a brush and managed to get the paint precisely where it was meant to go.

Another Basement General over at Jon's Curio Clashes is interested in doing some 15MM ancients. He is painting up a ton of Early Imperial Romans. I will be painting a ton of Greeks and Macedonians to have some battles with him. So it is time to pick up the brush again, scrape off the rust and get busy painting. Looking forward to it.

Glad to hear you are painting again. I had my annual eye exam for diabetes, and I am starting to get cataracts. I also need new glasses. :)

Scott, I'm looking forward to seeing your work. Can't wait to get them, along with Doug's Gauls and my Romans, on the table.

That is awesome. I know this is a great thing for you to relax.
