My cold is better today, but still drained of energy. And I had to spend 6 hours without internet access - my ISP decided to do some maintenance to the hardware in my local ADSL exchange because "there was a problem". Funnily enough, I hadn't noticed any issues with my DSL connection up to that point.
Anyway, that's enough of the trivial stuff, so let's get to the important things - painting miniatures.
In between sneezing and nose-blowings I did manage to get a fair bit of painting done on the javelin troops, more than I'd realised now I look at them.
flesh (done a while ago)
reverse of shield in a "wood" colour
Still to do:
"face" of shields
metalwork (sword hilts, javelin tips, shield boss, shield rim)
Looking at what is left to do, I may do a bit more tomorrow night, in between the "whitewash" and brown-wash steps on the horses. As I've rearranged my FoG tournament match against Seb to Thursday night, so with writing up the AAR on Friday, it probably means the figures will be finished at the weekend.
And I still need to work out how to paint the riders separately from the horses - any suggestions for fixing them to painting sticks?
I'm thinking of perhaps covering the sticks with masking tape, then attaching the riders by their feet with superglue (or maybe UHU). Would that work?
