Spectraltalon – Hobby, Life and Motivation

This IS me motivated!

Welcome back, dear readers! This week, another of my friends from across the pond has kindly offered to write an article for the site. Confusingly his name is also Matt, hence me using his Instagram handle in the post title.

Getting the mojo up to do some painting sometimes can be tough. Inspiration may not be forthcoming, you may be getting to much thrown at you in your day-to-day work/life situation, so what can you do?

This is quite a long one, so make a cuppa, rev up some crumpets and marmite and settle in.

Yes, WCF is finally starting to branch out, and now has an Instagram account. The account name is in the bottom left corner of the banner. I don’t want to type it in here in case bots are crawling the interwebs. The mechanicus needs to get on that sh*t and lock it down.

Pandemic Lockdown project: Squats. Matt weighs in.

Crazy days – all hail the hobby lifeline. #shelterinhobby

It is though the Plaguefather himself has set his sights on Holy Terra for his next incursion, right? In all seriousness though, these are some interesting times we’re all currently living in. First and foremost, I hope that you are all happy and healthy, and observing the guidelines we’ve all been issued regarding social distancing and whatnot. We can all get through this together, and get through it we shall.

As tabletop wargaming is a very social hobby, spending weeks shut in can be a very daunting prospect, but that’s where we’re at.
