Mongols Almost Finished

I forgot to mention in my last post that I was taking Friday off work. Mind you, it only gave me a touch more time for painting than I'd normally have as I needed to do some shopping in the morning and then head down to my dad's mid-afternoon. It was his 80th birthday you see...

Anyway, I managed to finish painting the Mongols, give them a coat of Klear/ink, pop them off the painting sticks, sort them into groups for basing, glue them onto their bases and add the basing texture - medium grey ballast sprinkled onto a thick layer of liquid superglue.

Today I'll be knocking off the bits of ballast overhanging the edges of the bases, sealing the ballast with thin PVA and once that has dried painting the bases. Unless the PVA takes an age to dry, in which case I'll be doing the painting and flocking tomorrow. And then giving them a spray with matt varnish. I'll take some nice pics of them once that's all done.

While various stages are drying, I'll be priming the Korean crossbowmen, which will be my next painting job.


  1. Coming along very nicely I must say.

  2. This look brilliant! Well done, indeed.

  3. Lovely Mongols, Tamsin! Certain to break many hearts and armies. You must have a warehouse to store all of your minis. Your brush never rests!
