Ahh, that's great news Theo, even if there's still waiting to be done. Plenty of that everywhere at the moment. Appreciate hearing something bright amongst everything else. Congrats.

Glad to hear it. But don't knock the work your doing as a janitor I've known too many good people die in hospitals from infections esecially MRSA it's neglected and under respected but vital.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Thanks everybody . Looks like my start date is two weeks away yet. With the Covid19 causing issues with the training class and end of our payroll period pushing it out till then. Slightly more money to boot, so good deal all around. The two weeks will give me time to say goodbye to loads of people who I’ve worked with over the last 6.5 years. Had a couple doctors who overheard me telling someone else both express Howe they are going to miss me, which was awesome.

Got some work done on the swarm of Pusgoyles this week. Here’s the Lord of Affliction on his steed.

The skin of the pusgoyle looks almost translucent, almost like a grub. If I gave it a glossy coating I think it might sell the effect.

And the swarm and a Pygmy mammoth

Thanks everyone. One week left of the janitorial stuff at the hospital. Had a new boss start the day I gave notice , he said usually people wait a day or two before the quit after meeting him. He’s a good guy and he is seriously pushing for me to work for his company. Our management is outsourced to these guys , hence why I’ve had no upward mobility over the years. We run through them pretty hard, this guy is literally number 23 in four years , one one lasted three years .

My hands are numb from all the soap, hand washing and hand sanitizer that I go through at work. I ain’t bringing this home.

I know my job is important even if lackluster. I had no qualms about taking the job years ago as I had a very strong memory from my youth. It was my father telling me how important this one guy at our church was. I had asked if he was a priest or some sort of saint, but he was just the old janitor. My father was a hard worker all his life and appreciated people who got their hands dirty. So for him to say such a nice thing about the man it made an impression on me. I think I was five or six at the time and it’s a solid memory still 40 years later.

Still, the true heroes I work with are the doctors and nurses who I’ve seen run towards the coding patients who have Covid19. I’ve seen it a few times this week. They have families and they know the consequences, yet still go without needing a reminder. Makes me proud to work with these men and women.

Tiring stuff these days, being on edge and more of a heightened awareness of things. Little time to paint, yet it has happened. Even less time to post and read while the wife and kids are home and I try to get some semblance of normalcy going.

One of the Glottkin brothers who rides on his brothers back. Still needs a few touches on the cloth, but otherwise he is about done.

Yard work and cleaning of basement and garage this weekend.

Stay safe
Stay strong
And stay 6’ away .

Thanks everyone. Playing it safe as can be. Limited exposure to rest of the world and bathing in hand sanitizer. Soap levels running low though. We don’t have it nearly as bad as New York, but we have begun rationing the Personal Protective Equipment at work. If you can stay at home, inside, please do. Any chance of exposure is one that doesn’t need to happen.

Nurgle forces being on the rise is mainly due to the 2019 generals handbook rules adjustments. The funny (although completely unrelated) thing is a coworker told me I could sell my blood platelets for money, 4 visits got me $300 and him a $25 finder fee. That and a few Scrooge McDuck moves got me 5 Maggotkin Starters and a Glottkin. Anyone interested in more details PM me, only worked for Nurgle though.

@Grave, which army are you thinking?

A little more work done.


And the family together.

Family mug shot

Still plenty to do, but at least tabletop ready.

A lot to catch up on, congratulations on the new job and best of luck with everything that is going on Theo. Like you say, as difficult as it may be, avoiding contact with others outside of your home when possible is the way limit the impact of the virus.

The Glotkin is starting to take shape and already looking great, as you say it is already ready for the tabletop. It will be time consuming tackling the various skulls, bubboes and pustules that are all over the model but it will be worth it.

Thanks LTMW, speaking of pustules, I’m at a bit of a loss on how to paint them up. Was going to do yellow, but now I really like the fire on the wizardly brother and I’m considering orange all around. Suggestions would be great .
