The Painter's Dilemma

One of the regulars on the Too Fat Lardies Yahoo group pointed me to the blog Iron Mitten, by Secundus, a British wargamers and gardener with an interest in Ancient Rome and Naoleonics. He is also a very talented artist, and his cartoons alone are a good reason to visit his blog.

As an example, this cartoon captures the dilemma of every miniature wargamer who has multiple projects competing for his attention on the painting desk, and only so much time (that would be me). Often, as Secundus notes, this dilemma becomes worse when a sexy new rulebook comes out, tempting you to try a new period and buying new figures which want to jump the older ones waiting in the painting queue.
