Updates, and a cause for delays this week

I've painted up Thyra, a unit of Daughters of the Flame, a Repenter, as well as a Revenger over the weekend. Luckily I did, and I'll get pics of them up soon, but today... well... lets just say my luck hit again and suddenly I have some delays.

This is a pic of the cause of my delays for this week. While helping my father out today with removing some old flooring from an apartment he's remodelling... well... this nasty sucker of a splinter bit me in the thumb. Yes it is 3/4 of an inch long, a touch over 1/8 of an inch wide. Took 2 hours in a prompt care, a local anesthetic, as well as a needle, tweezers, and a #15 scalpel to remove it from my thumb. This bad boy was clear into the muscle of my thumb and just wouldn't come out.

Needless to say, having a BIG splinter deep into the thumb of your painting/writing hand is just not at all fun. But add in being on blood thinners and it becomes a huge hassle to deal with, because I bleed like crazy. So I have doctors orders to not do anything with pressure or lots of movement in my thumb for a few days so it has time to start knitting up.

Luck, I have it... usually the bad kind. Oh well, I'll post some pics of the Menoth work soon though, only have to get the static grass on the bases to finish them. That should be easy enough.

Until later!


  1. Ouch!! Hope it gets better soon mate.

  2. Thanks, just seriously sore at this point but enough so to keep me from doing any real hobby work. Hopefully it will feel good enough to get back to work in a couple days.
