Hobby ADHD

I think many of us have it: Hobby ADHD.  You know, the problem where you are so psyched about a project but then you see something new and shiny and suddenly you've put that other passion project on the back burner?  Well, that's how I've been feeling of late.  I have my "To Do" list: English Civil War, Land of the Free (AWI), Gorgon Studios figure painting, Fate of a Nation.  Then there are those little distractions that I just can't get out of my mind.  For instance......
An Empire Captain for Warhammer Fantasy!  I haven't played Fantasy in many years but the new End Times book "Nagash" along with some folks at the local GW had my mind pre-occupied with thoughts of the Empire and my Fantasy glory days.


 A Space Wolf Blood Claw!!  Now, I actually have played a couple of games of 40k plus I  have a 1500 Astra Militarum force assembled (and 5% painted).  But when the Stormclaw Starter Box was released many months back I had to scratch the itch.  I've always been interested in Space Wolves, loved the new models and my buddy was itching to buy it for the Orks.  So, we both purchased it and then traded each other so I got all the Space Wolves and he got all the Orks.


A fraking Imperial Knight!?!?  This one is thanks to a friend who is running some games at Adepticon including Adeptus Titanicus and a Imperial Knights Tournament.  He was trying to recruit me and although I attempted to resist, he made an offer I couldn't refuse.  Hell, who am I kidding?  It didn't take much for him to convince me.  OF COURSE I want to paint an Imperial Knight!

So there you have it. Three models I didn't need or plan to do at this point but there they are.  The Empire and Space Wolves will go back in the queue for another day but the Knight is now an ADDITIONAL project I need to complete for Adepticon 2015.  

And that, my friends, is what happens if you don't control your hobby ADHD.
