Just to fill you in on why I've been a little quiet since the weekend:
Monday night - Went to see Mad Max: Fury Road after work. No real plot and not much dialogue,, but who cares? There are trucks, buggies and spiky cars; explosions and flame throwers; pretty much non-stop action in the post-apocalyptic wastelands. Did I mention trucks, buggies and spiky cars; explosions and flamethrowers? I did? Well, it's worth mentioning again. Especially the totally mad truck with a Humongous (did you see what I did there?) sound system with drummers and a guy in a leotard playing a guitar which is also a flamethrower.
Tuesday night - felt off-colour so didn't do anything workbench-wise.
Wednesday night - went to my first Labour Party meeting for a few years as it was nominations for the Party's London Mayoral candidate. It was good to catch up with comrades I hadn't seen for a long time and amazing to see how many new faces there were. When I got home it was too late to do anything on the workbench.
This evening - I'd been suffering streaming eyes and running nose all afternoon, so I picked up some hayfever tablets (Loratidine) on the way home and took one. They're not meant to be thr drowsy ones, but they did knock me out for an hour or so when I got home.
However, I have finally managed to get some workbench stuff done - gluing the pink-ish stained cushion stuffing onto bases for use as paint-spray markers.
I think they've come out quite well. I've made up a black/grey ink mix and dunked some stuffing in that to stain overnight. That will be for use as smoke markers.
I'll need more smoke markers than paint markers (they hang around for much longer in the game). I'll also need some to go on flaming oil slicks. I'll also want some smaller bits of smoke to indicate cars that are on fire.
