babies make for bad hobby

My quest to complete my high-elves came to a screeching halt the other day when my wife woke me up with a "its time" one liner. We got to the hospital bright and shinny and had a brand new baby girl by late and dusky.
Are those elves for me? Cool!!
I did manage to do some damage on the elves before I was "side-tracked". I went with six E. Reavers and some sword masters to make up the difference. Both have decent amounts of paint on them and wont take long to finish if/when I get the time to work on them.
8 Swordmasters

So, as most of you can guess the posts will become a bit less regular (not that that was happening lately) and might include more of my older models that have gone un-noticed on the blog or the painting/gaming table.


  1. Congrats on the new addition to the family, Bard. :) And nice work on the elves so far.

  2. Congratulations! And babies definitely make hobbying more difficult, but after a few years you potentially have a little hobby apprentice on your hands. My kids are aged 7-12 right now, and sitting down to paint or play Munchkin or Settlers with them is wondrous!

  3. Congratulations man! don't worry, you'll be able to get some hobby time in when your daughter is taking a nap (unless you're taking one too lol!)

  4. Congrats on the new baby. I have two boys under five, and I can still get hobbying in in the little slices of time I have free. I gave up 95% of the time I would spend watching tv and playing computer games, which helped.
