Just Finish A Thing

 I’ve had this little voice inside of my hobby headspace for about a month now…

Just a little itch telling me to finish off a miniature. Any genre, any scale, any medium…

Just finish something!

Instead, I’ll pick up a freshly undercoated figure and start half-heartedly trying to remember how to paint. Doubly so as in this case I’m trying to match to an older scheme. 

The brushes are back down in record time and then I’m off to sort something else in the house.

It’s been that way for four weeks - tonight, I decided, would be different.

Tonight, I’d Just Finish A Thing.

Here’s the thing in question - the Creature from the Black Lagoon, as sculpted by the wonderful Paul Muller and sold by Four A Miniatures.

It kind of works perfectly as a little palette cleanser - with toes in Lovecraft, Dracula’s America, even Don’t Look Back, the horror-slasher game!

I tried to take some nice photos, but that’s where my energy ended for the night, so here’s a moody shot that shows the figure off nicely! The details are exquisite!

Enough from me - I’m going to try and do more of this sort of thing in the future, as well as trying to set boundaries and deadlines for myself to get some games in - it’s well before COVID that I’ve even played a miniatures game, despite a large painted collection! Let me know what you think.

    I wondered if that was the actual Creature from the Black Lagoon or another Deep One sculpt when you showed it to me the other day.
    Do you have some sort of pulp style female figure in a swimsuit/bikini to finish off the classic trope?
