I never thought this day would come (Ebay Deathwing Land Raider)

While working on my Crypteks and fixing several broken Necrons I looked at the Ebay Deathwing Land Raider again.

I'm feeling very much like David Tennant in End of Time part 2.  He looked straight into the camera and said "I don't want to go."  One can feel the raw emotion in that scene.  That David actually didn't want to stop being the Doctor.  Yet he had to.

It hit me.  I don't want to sell it.  Its mine.  However I have to sell it to grow.  It has to belong to the real owner.  It was mine as long as it could be.  It has to move on.  It has to be theirs.  I can't stop here.  I have to grow.  I must sell this to accept the world of commission work and learn more about myself.  No doubt I'm not the first nor the last commission 40k painter to feel this way.

I will miss this model.  Someone will buy it and it will be theirs.

  1. As a commission artist, I have had that feeling as you sell off a piece. Then I remember the money I'll be getting for it and realize I can always do another or one just for myself!

    Good work man, the model looks great! The space nebula is a nice touch, I must have missed you working on it.

    Smells Like Wargaming

    1. Granesh, thanks for the kind words. Also for supporting me in this time of emotion.
