Currently started are Skraelings ( 3 units painted need basing, 1 unit blocked), Blood bowl Humans (part blocked), Druidic ritual scene (part painted), Casualty vignette (modifications done) and a unit of French Napoleonics (which I burnt the midnight oil on last night and went well past the intended blocking stage) I need to adjust the temporary bases for the Napoleonic figures as these proved awkward to work with.
|Skraeling warlord before basing|
Most of today has been spent on the last Skraeling unit, then all will need the basing to be completed. But I have had a bit of warband funk set in and got frustrated after I discovered the shields dont fit the warriors hands. I have had to sit and trim all the backs out and repaint them before attaching to each figure. So after this I diverted my attention to some other French Napoleonic Infantry as these form the back bone of the challenge for me this year. I am going to stick to my rotational blocking method as it seems to be helping me get figures turned around in good order. Its also nice after a day at the brushes doing detail work to just sit and block items ready for the next stages of an evening.
|why don't they make the shields to fit the hands when designing would have saved a lot of hassle today!!!|
