Well that was a thing….

Decided I wasn’t happy with where the base colours were at – I know that the AP dip hides a multitude of sins and that I am only aiming for tabletop standard, but I do feel something of a sense of duty to those who sculpted the original minis to try to do a half-decent job. So spent about 12 hours today ( @johnlyons not sure how you manage all that painting day in day out without needing a shoulder reconstruction….) going through each colour in turn and applying a second coat or touching up the gaps as appropriate. Then put down detailed colours everywhere else that hadn’t been done yet. There are still details that I could go back and add to but I think that where they are presently will suffice for a presentable tabletop standard once the dip is on etc.

So gameplan form here will be to brush on AP strong Tone dip tomorrow morning and let that settle until Saturday morning. At which point I can base them all and then hit with a matt varnish. So all going well should be done by Sunday?

Today has pretty much meant there is little to no chance of me making meaningful progress on the Elves or Knights of the White Wolf but I might look to do a little just so that they are moved across to ‘in progress’. Will see how my levels of enthusiasm are tracking tomorrow.
