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...
