I'll be honest, lately my post count has fallen off for a number of reasons. For one thing, I've been lucky enough to spend more time with my family. But more than that, I haven't had too many projects that inspire me to paint and model. The Forge World models I've gotten have been great, however the regular 40k line and the paltry re-releases from Games Workshop have left me unmotivated to finish any of the small 1000 point army projects I need to finish to start something new. So those are the reasons I haven't been as productive of late.
What does motivate me, art like the picture above for one thing. I love the Ultramarines (could you tell?) and art that involves them, or Black Library fiction about them helps to feed the fires. Sadly, I'm so far along with the Ultramarines, that I have only vehicles left to build, and even then not many. Definitely the Black Library books, video games and White Dwarf help to inspire me, as do the various blogs that I visit. Having just bought Space Marine, the video game, I'm hoping it will reinvigorate my desire to do some modeling.
