I took a couple of progress shots, but they're not terribly interesting. I just thought I might track things and pay attention to how long it actually took me to paint them.
|6pm: 5 Pistoliers, unpainted except for the bases (which I sneakily did last thing the previous night)|
|8:30pm. By this point I probably wasted half an hour eating, so this is about 2 hours of work. The horses and their leather components are painted, the metal bits are painted and washed, and I've done the green basecoat|
Just like my failed efforts to properly chronicle my tournaments, I then failed to take another picture as I was slightly absorbed. By 10pm I know that I had done the basecoats on the yellow and red, and had washed almost the whole models in Devlan Mud. I was waiting impatiently for them to dry, and seriously considering locating the hair dryer.
|11:30pm: They're done! Before the Devlan Mud had fully dried I was painting and washing the skin, then I started highlighting.|
In practical terms for me, there are now 2 evenings remaining before Duelling Paintbrushes is over. It has occurred to me that with a slight reshuffle (dropping the 20 Free Company and a character from my original target and adding a Cannon), I can still hit 1000 points for the month. It means painting 6 infantry models. I can do that...
