The sound of last minute painting echoed through the Fez house hold once again. The new hamster Callie (or .50 cal, depending on who you ask - Stug passed away last month) looks on bemused. I'm sure she'll soon get used to the painting lamp being on so late at night. My long suffering girlfriend walks into the room once again - "Why do you do this to yourself? I'm off to bed."
I clean my brush, look at the sorrowful brown base coated Panzersturm platoon staring back at me, and ponder on the question.

As you may have guessed, this isn't going to be your usual 'Tale of x gamers' update. A combination of real world events means that I've not had the painting time I thought I would, and have subsequently fallen behind the curve on my army project. All I've really had time to do it touch up my existing Volkssturm platoon a bit, so you'll have to enjoy those pictures to break up this text.

|What I have so far!|
How do you guys deal with 'hobby overload'? I think its different than hobby burn out, and I don't seem to find FoW players suffer from it as much, but it'll be interesting to hear your views.
So sitting there, looking at my models, I thought about the question - why do I do this to myself? As much as I want to be able to show off my army on the blog, this hobby is still just that - a hobby. The Panzersturm models are lovely, and the last thing I want to do is rush them.
