I haven't touched the Named Gangsters since Wednesday, but plan to make up for that tomorrow by getting them finished (including varnishing).
This morning I got woken up at a horribly early time by the postman. It was my Sarissa order being delivered.
Some big boxes
2 City Block Residences and a Gaslamp Alley Town Hall
3 City Block Corner Stores
Rear of the instructions - ground floor interior!
3 small and 3 large City Block commercial buildings
City Block Warehouse
A set of templates and 2 packs of tokens for Gruntz
I've spent this afternoon and evening putting the warehouse together. Some of the bits aren't glued in place yet to make it easier to paint other parts. I also discovered that I'd made a booboo putting the door pieces together. This has necessitated soaking the bits to allow me to separate them. They are now drying out between several layers of kitchen roll with a heavy weight on top to prevent warping. That will teach me to do a dry-fit first!
Anyway, here are some pics of the place (minus loading bay doors) being raided by the Feds and the Cops:
Front steps aren't glued in place yet
The tea crates were a bit fiddly to assemble
The stairs aren't glued in place yet, so that I can paint the columns more easily.
*cough* someone forgot to take into account the window positions when they designed the layout for the ground floor offices....
(not me - I assembled as per the destructions)
Edit: *abashed face* errmmm, actually it was me. It appears that I didn't follow the destructions and assembled the insert upside down. My apologies to Sarissa.
The panel with the window and door details has been painted (needs a touch up in places) but won't be glued in place until I've painted the rest of the building.
I'll leave painting the building for evenings during the week - as it's mostly going to be spray painting, that's an easy job for when I get home too tired to paint figures.
I think tomorrow I'll assemble one of the corner stores. Alongside finishing the Named Gangsters, of course.
