It's not obsessive compulsive behaviour: It's just a collection... (Part 2)

Image
So, after the speed I put together the capsule toys, I thought I should at least peek at the other models I got...



Because what every single man needs in his life are giant robots...
Anyway, one of the things I thought was pretty good after I got these kits home was what I saw on the side of the box:



Miniatures! I wasn't 100% impressed with the paint job on the displayed ones, but they looked like they were OK details, and I wasn't expecting them, so it was a nice surprise. I thought I would open the box (I'm not planning to put these together for a while as I need to get stuff ready for Golden Demon in a few months) to see what it was like inside:



At this point I'm thinking that it's going to be a slightly more advanced assembly that the capsule toys. No surprise really. After flicking through the instructions (Which are in Japanese, which will no doubt be fun) it seems clear that I am going to have paint a few pieces in order to get the right colour scheme as it poi…

Last weekend I went to Supanova for the first time. I've heard about it the past few years, and it seemed a bit slack to keep forgetting about it over and over again, especially when it's only about a ten minute drive away. And everyone I talked to said they had a great time there. So I went this year. And the same as when I went to MOAB last year, I wasn't prepared for the amount of cool stuff there, and ended up spending more money than I probably should have...

Something that has been growing over the past few years has been my random anime/manga stuff (Books, figures, random DVDs...). There are a few series I tend to stick to, but there are others that overpower the rest where I just have one or two items. One series I really love though is Neon Genesis Evangelion. Let's face it, at the end of the day it's a drama series that also happens to contain giant robots entrusted to characters who can't even attend MA15+ movies on their own yet, as well as conspirac…

Back again with random things...

So my original plan of painting hard and getting stuff done for Little Wars never panned out. In fact, I haven't painted anything for months. But I've been meaning to post these photos for a while now and keep forgetting. So here are some random pics...

First, my self-bought birthday presents! I needed new brushes, and there were some models I had my eye on for a while which I thought I should get at the same time. SO I bought myself:



A set of Doctor Who and Firefly models from Heresy. In fact, I bought two of each. Obsessive behaviour is a killer some times... Still, now I have Doctor Whos and Kaylees, and also a Ghostbusters demon dog thing. And now I have these Who miniatures, it's not going to be long before I end up grabbing a few of the others I have seen floating around :)



New brushes! I was holding out for a while to get a set of W&N7's, but these are Kaple brushes which I was recommended. I really love these brushes. I honestly can't believe I have been u…
