First week at my new job completed, head filled up with new impressions. What better way to relax for an hour or two before sleeping than by painting minis? Zoning in on just the task ahead of you with well known tools and techniques? These last few weeks I've enjoyed getting back into the hobby after having stashed away the paint brushes for more than 25 years.
Yesterday, I played good old Space Hulk with my son, for the first time with a full set of painted minis. A nice two player game with dice rolling and some skill to optimise the odds.
The first week at the new job went well, I have a good feeling so far. Lots of details still to be sorted out of course. My instinct about going for a smaller company and working directly for those who pay the bills (not as a consultant) seems to pay off so far. The organisation is very aligned on its purpose and I don't pick up a lot of different agendas. Chatting with the coach about board games and rpgs is a nice bonus of course!
