I miss painting miniatures. I was never very good at it, mind you, but it was still kinda fun, a way to be "gaming" on those nights when you weren't actually gaming. These days, there's just no way for me to have the time for it -- it takes major effort to do the primary activities of gaming, much less the ancillary ones! But there are still times when I wander wistfully around the minis racks at Game Parlor, thinking, "That's a cool figure, I'd have fun painting that one."
I don't know why these thoughts come to me on weekday afternoons so much; I guess it must be 'cause my work is so dull.
