Changun and a Mycenaean

I added another Black Cat Bases dog model representing Changun to an earlier completed Crocodile Games Mycenaean. I added a Green Stuff curled tail for the Changun figure. I think it's actually listed as a jackal on the website, but the form is pretty close to Changun. The model is a bit oversized as Changun was medium sized Jindo, but I think he fits well with the Crocodile Games figure. Also, as I reminisce, Changun had a big heart and full of life - so it is indeed a fitting representation of him.
At the moment I have very little to no desire to paint or game. The thought of building a Korean Imjim War army, in memory of Changun, has crossed my mind, but will wait until I feel sure I can complete the project. I still think of Changun everyday and miss him very much. Warmest regards to all, Dean

  2. Agreed. I completely understand. Dogs are not pets - they're four-footed furry members of the family, and we feel their presence and their absence deeply.

    Taking a break sounds like a good idea. Maybe some gaming with your figures, or exposure to new periods, will spark the desire to paint again!

  12. A beautiful tribute to your pet and friend, none are more loyal. As a dog owner I understand the journey with them is full and the rewards are many, their loss is no less.

    Looking forward to seeing you return to the brushes when you feel ready.

    Cheers,
    Ross
