My right shoulder was much better today - no noticeable pain, so I was able to do some painting. I actually managed to finish the 6mm Union infantry:
I'm not basing these just yet. I've got two more line and two Zouave regiments to paint up. I'll base them all up in one go.
That's two items from my list done.
Once they were painted, I moved on to item 3 of the list I posted on Saturday - finishing off the prep on the 25mm GZG figures. Everything was going very nicely until I got onto the last few figures - the nuns, priest and drunk. One of the nuns had a lot of excess lead in the gap under her habit. To get it out I started drilling it with a pinvice. Skinny bit, slightly too much pressure - cue one snapped drill-bit and the stump skipping into my left thumb.
Lots of blood (well, it looked like lots, but probably wasn't that much really). the stump did go in about a quarter-inch and my thumb is a bit swollen and tender now. I did wash the wound thoroughly immediately after it happened, making sure to squeeze blood out to get rid of any crap that might have been carried in by the stump. Hopefully the swelling will have gone down by tomorrow.
Anyway, I did manage to finish the prep (with my thumb suitably covered with a pad of tissue to maintain pressure on the wound).
That's three items ticked off the list.
Of course, the fourth item on the list is...
Fun time tomorrow! :)

- A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).
