I work in the mental health field. Most days, it’s rewarding and enjoyable work, and I generally get to feeling like I’m making a small, positive difference in my tiny corner of the world. And then there are tougher stretches. Days that can feel like weeks and weeks that can feel like months.
Like many of you (I imagine), getting a chance to practice this hobby of ours, dreaming up and building and painting and playing with these tiny space soldiers, is a huge stress-reliever for me. It takes my mind away from the day and lets me relax, lets me blow off steam, let’s me be creative and cut loose and have fun. I suppose it’s healthier than some of the hobbies I might have gotten myself into when I was younger, though it’s definitely more addictive.
And today was a day I got home and thought, After today, I need to hobby hard.
So here are some WIP creations that were born in a burst of hobbying tonight. Enjoy!
Magos Explorator and/or Ordo Xenos Inquisition Warband:
Zombie Tech-priest Enginseer for my Imperial Guard Zombie Squad:
And finally, the leader of Paradox Squad, enemies of the Ordo Chronos… the dread Alepha Omega:
He is warped and mutated from his meddling in the time stream. He aches with psychic power. His ruined form is decorated with dead versions of himself from alternate timelines, from realities both past and future. He is the Paradox Lord. Fear him, for his very existence threatens all of our.
Keep hobbying hard out there. We’ll see you again soon.
