Apart from my venture into the outside world, what have I been up to today?
1) Sleeping - as I said, this bug has me absolutely whacked out.
2) Using up tissues at a rate of knots
3) Feeling grotty
4) A little bit of work at the paint table
Following a brief snooze after I got home from the shops, I decided to do something which wouldn't require a great deal of concentration. As I noted before, the Mongol cavalry had been primed white. However, almost all of the riders and just over half the horses have armour. The armour needs an undercoat of black as a base for the metallic paints.
Then, after a light lunch (I'm not feeling very hungry) I crashed out on the sofa for a couple of hours more. That helped a bit so I decided to try doing a little bit of work on the ACW cavalry. I have managed to carry on, despite feeling gradually more wiped out. I'm going to leave them for now and hope to do some more tomorrow. Progress has been slow as I've needed to take breaks more frequently than usual.
There isn't a great deal left to do on these before they are ready for basing - flesh, hair, belts and other leather equipment, canteens, metals, guidons and touch-ups. I might be able to get that done if I'm not feeling worse tomorrow than I do today.
