I know that more than a few days of me not posting gets you lot antsy, but you should know by now that I'll always be back in my own good time. It's mostly been because I haven't really had anything to post.
So, the real life stuff. This week I'm away from the office on week 2 of my NEBOSH certificate course. And the exams for both modules are next Tuesday. Gulp!
Of course, that means that my evenings this week and the whole of my weekend will be pretty busy with reading and revising. So, not much (if any) painting or blogging until the exams are over and done with.
But what you really want to know about is what I've been up to since my last blog post. Well, I didn't try to restart painting the pirates. However, I did do a little more prep work - 16 dismounted Mongol archers. I based and primed these (after adding basing texture) at the weekend. They will be a light foot nomad unit for the Koreans.
I also primed the FSE and civilian ships. For some reason - I can't recall what - I decided to prime the civilian ships white rather than grey. That means I'll have to incorporate a wash as the initial step when I paint these up to provide some shading in the depths. Oh well.
While I was priming, I remembered that there was a small group of figures I had prepped ages back with the intention of painting them for the Challenge, but I hadn't primed them. So I did this on Saturday. The group is Warlord Games' "Prince Rupert of the Rhine". Hang on a sec though - how does one man and a horse count as a group of figures? Well, it's not just a man and a horse - there is also his poodle (a proper, big one not one of those horrible, yappy, pampered little pests), Boye.
If I do manage to find any time to paint before my exams, I will do a post. Until then:
