- laziness... not wanting to cast the parts
- I like to rummage through my fodder for parts, I can't visualize what I want to do until I have gone through hundreds or thousands of parts
DOnt get me wrong guys..I've said it before, i hate casting parts. I am very lazy when it comes to that part of the process. Thats the main reason i dont get motivated till the last week of these projects casue thats my first step.
I still rummage sort of, i browse. I look through my figures in my display cabinet and decide what parts i will use or not.
As far as patience brentS, it takes about 10 minutes to get a part. That beats, searchin through e-bay or hopeing someone answers your post in the need/trade thread.
I remember alot of folks saying " I would do this figure but the parts arent available... Well you sort of eliminate that problem.
I do homework with my son every evening, then my wife an i usually watch a show and if i'm not too tired, i'll work or a figure. But nights when my wife says lets go to bed...customs take a back seat....
Saturdays when she hits the stores, is when i get to work uninterupted... Unless my son wants to play video games... Its tough.
Phruby, I've been saying to myself that i need to get all my old fodder together and have a sale! Problem is that as new figures comeout, the old fodder doenst seem to fit scale wise, or the sculpts are less appealing...Thats a big reason for me, making casts and not digging through old fodder.
Thanks Jeff, I do plan on carding them, we'll see if i can get the cards done by this weekend.
