Cerebral thrombosis

I'm not sure how to put this, but two weeks ago I had a stroke. I believe the tecnical term for it is a 'cerebral thrombosis'. It came, as you might think, as a total chok that I, in my relatively young age should experience that kind of things. I was in hospital for some days, but things are looking much better now already. The main consequence was severe problems coordinating the eyes and moving around. I still have some problems focusing. My eyes do get better every day though, and hopes are, that they will be as good as new within a month og two... That would be really nice, thank you!
For a couple of days I had no idea whether I would be able to paint a miniature ever again, but things are looking much brighter now, and I have already been testing a little on the 2.ed blood bowl elves I have on my work desk at the moment :)

So, no pictures for you this time - but soon I hope to bring you some news

More elves for blood bowl...

I am really pleased with these Jes Goodwin elves... Although they have some less defined areas here and there, I think they come out pretty good looking :)

Here you have two more catchers (agile and slippery as hell) and another blitzer. The colourscheme is the same - the entire team is meant to be like this - no black-, red- or bluehaired elves on this team. Coherent is the codeword here.

Blood bowl elves

Blood bowl elves. When I got the team from the customer, they were all undercoated with white spray making the minis all granulated :( a pestilence to paint... Almost painted a handful before I realized that it would never work. I have stripped most of them (16 players in total) and started all over again... sigh.

Anyway... My new tactic is to paint one at a time, take the time it takes and enjoy these classic miniatures :)

The sculpts aren't as sharp as minis today, but they have lots of character - I have a good feeling about this team!
