AHPC7 - Challenge Day 53 Koreans WIP 6

It's finally become clear. My tiredness the past few evenings has been down to a virus. Yup, a cold has now burst through my immune defenses. Just in time for the weekend. And just in time to prevent me meeting up with Miles for a meal this evening.

Which explains why I've not made as much progress this week as I'd hoped. This evening I finished the second batch of 24 figures (apart from the hat tassels):

The first two batches:

and with the third batch:

With the whole day tomorrow available for painting, I should be able to completely finish the third batch. However the fourth batch (with the officers) is unlikely to be done in time and the two general stands won't either. That leaves me in a bit of a quandary - do I submit the ones I've painted so far for Monday, or do I hold them over until everything is finished? Maybe I should just find something that can be painted quickly and submit that for this week before continuing with the Koreans? Decisions, decisions...


  1. I am sorry to hear that you are feeling under the weather, hope you're feeling brighter soon.

  2. Your bases are interesting me - What is the material uses and colour.
    Great work as usual. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. @ Michael A - feeling a lot better today thanks! :)

    @ Fran - will do! :)

    @ Dannoc - thanks! After gluing the figures down, I coat the bases with superglue, cover with medium ballast, let sit for a minute or so then shake off the excess. After an hour or so, I flood the ballast with dilute PVA glue to seal it then when it's dry I prime white. The colour on the bases is Khaki Grey.
