So I haven’t posted to the site during the final third of this year — it’s been 4 months since I posted anything! I have a few models completed (just awaiting their seal coat, but complete otherwise) — They’ll make their way to the site after the next few weeks.
I haven’t posted in so long for a couple reasons. First, I have a 2-year-old who requires close supervision & constant attention; it makes taking the time to write & edit a post problematic.
Another reason it’s been so long — I’m working on a couple side-quests to (hopefully) turn my hobbies into something that can pay for them.
I’m considering custom commission painting; working with individuals who’d like their RPG character painted, I think it would be satisfying to be able to provide a nice-looking model for use by people who don’t want to paint minis but want an articulated/colorful character.
The other thing I will (hopefully) be doing over the next year will be setting up a store on my site, specializing in TSR products from the 80’s & 90’s. I have an extensive collection of RPGs, far more than I can realistically use in a lifetime, so maybe it’s time to sell them (but not on eBay because of the massive feels that come with an eBay sale (10% to eBay, some opaque % goes to Paypal… meaning the markup has to be 15% higher than where I’d prefer to set prices.
So that’s where we’re at — I’m puzzling through how I’d like to set everything up as far as the “business” side of it is concerned; how to track the investment into the side business, the revenue/sales, the costs & expenses, and the profits or losses. And also the design, implementation, & launch of whatever software/website I end up going with for the store.
More models coming soon! Beyond the 3 I have complete & ready for photo shoot, I just primed a whole mess of minis since we had a nice day yesterday and it’ll be a few months before I can realistically expect another good day for aerosol priming.
