It’s F-F-F-F-FRIDAY! A weekend of nerdery awaits

Woo! I’d like to say I have something to say in this here blog post, but the plain truth of the matter is that I don’t. I’m just excited enough about it almost being the weekend to gush about it here. Wifey is out tonight at a friends house for wine, chinese take away and cake because one of them has a birthday today, which leaves little old me sat at home. Don’t feel sorry for me though, I’m a man uncaged! A world of opportunity awaits me! What will I do with my Coronation Street free evening?! God knows, on one hand.. there’s the xbox.. then there’s the Formula 1 coverage on the telly box.. then there’s the possibility of watching a film uninterupted… and of course, there’s always the hobby stuff.

I’m feeling like I’m on a bit of a roll with the hobby at the moment, so I want to try and carry across last weekend’s boundless enthusiasm into this weekend if possible, so whatever I end up doing with my evening, it will invariably also result in me hijacking the kids little table and setting up my painting wares upon it (my painting set up is a bit on the nomadic side, and has been ever since sprog #1 came along and all my hobby goodies got punted out of the house)

So, tonight I’m hoping to…

Finish painting up that steamborg executioner chappy. This might be harder than it sounds because I’ve been flailing about with him a bit, he looks incomplete but I don’t have any obvious ideas on how to actually finish him up without it looking like a hack job.

Paint a bit more on Mr December Acolyte, fun fun fun. Unlike the previously mentioned model, I’m having a lot more fun painting this guy up.

*sob* Put a few more 6mm angry robot bases together. I fear for the safety of my fingertips.. the kids will be in bed so breaking out the dremel for a test run is out of the question. Not to mention the fact that despite knowing that I own a dremel, I have absolutely no clue whereabouts it actually is because I don’t use it that often.

Whip up a few test fences (my first play around was a bit on the large side, ending up as tall as the december acolyte I was painting last week. That wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t meant to be half that size. But hey ho, lesson learned.

Carve up some of the foam on my pond terrain pieces and maybe, if I’m feeling really brave, break out the polyfilla and smooth out the edges.

…you know I’ll just end up sitting on my xbox though, but it’s the thought that counts right?
