Writing Partner: A Mythic Update

AGE OF SIGMAR FEAST OF BONES

The month has ended and so has my recent project. I’m happy with the results, even if they didn’t quite match my initial goals.

Just to recap: I was aiming to complete and submit three pieces to a horror journal, and to accompany that I was going to build the Feast of Bones box as my side project. For reference this is the Feast of Bones box:

Warhammer Age Of Sigmar Ogor Mawtribes
A small army of bloodthirsty ogres (Ogors if you’re GDubs).
Warhammer Age of Sigmar Ossiarch Bonereaver Army
And a band of rather fancy skeletons.

These would accompany the creation of one poem, one short story, and one piece of flash fiction.

As usual, life got in the way a bit. This time it was a project at work which launched a bit rougher than expected. It happens (a lot actually). However, it didn’t really effect my writing, it hit the miniatures hardest. I had to really focus on my short story to make up for lost time and subsequently there was a long gap between minis. The writing is, however, the main point so I can live with that.

I completed the poem quickly and over the course of about a week I developed a short story I’m actually kind of proud of. Sadly, the flash fiction piece I was working on never really came together. I tried to restructure it multiple times and even tried to rework it as another poem. It just didn’t work. I might be able to salvage the idea for something else, but for now it will sit in the idea bucket and stew.

As for my writing partners, I managed the heroes and basic infantry for both armies.

I know I said I was going to build the banner bearer with the goblin lookout… but I forgot.

I also have the Leadbelchers (the cannon bois) partially completed. Really all I’m missing are the complex set-piece miniatures. I’m not sure if I’m going to power through them or save them for a future project.

Overall, I think this is pretty good for two weeks of work. Even if that flash fiction piece is really stuck in my craw. I wonder if I still have time to get something else written and submitted tonight?

I’m not sure what I’ll be working on in August but I can assure you, as soon as I know I will post a blog about it! Talk to you again soon.
