I managed to get a bit done on the uniformed dwarves

I would have got further tonight, but my delightful dog somehow knocked a box of figures down and meant my poor Werewolves had to have another touch up!

I managed to get the pack, cartridge boxes, straps and other pouch painted. Still, as can be seen from the photo above, there is a long way to go!

I was having a mooch in the shed (after safely transferring the werewolves into it) and decided to see what else needed painting. I found Dog artillery and cavalry that I had forgotten all about!

As for my paint jiggler… one of my biggest issues with Army Painter paints is that no matter how much you shake them they still don’t mix properly. They all have an agitator in to help with the process.

I eventually decided to bite the bullet and purchase a tool to do the job for me.

I would have preferred a more manly design on it, but it does jiggle the paint.

I decided that my ‘oak Brown’ being an absolute swine to mix would be my test paint, that and the fact that I wanted to use it for the packs on my Dwarves.

The following is a before and after view of the paint.

It really has made a difference.

I suppose the only fly in the ointment is that the jiggler came in at £25.00. To be fair it had free postage but that was about as cheap as it could be. Time will tell if it has been £25 well spent.

I doubt I will get anything done on my dwarves tomorrow night as my daughter and I are off playing a Star Trek RPG.

  1. That’s dogs and cats for you – sometimes clumsy, always loveable! I never knew there was such a thing as a nail lacquer shaker – my wife normally gives me that job!
    I’m interested to see how these figures turn out, because you paint completely differently from me. I put on all the shade colours first and then start with the base colours on the flesh (don’t usually add any further highlight since I’m only painting 20mm figures). The only time I don’t do this is if I use a wash, but I’m a bit selective about this.
    Anyway, the dwarves finished so far look excellent, so will be good to see the whole unit when it’s finished. Hope you enjoy your Star Trek session!

    1. I used to throw a wash onto everything, but now I am trying the be a bit more selective. My challenge for myself is to try and improve on the faces of the 28mm stuff I paint. To be honest I would normally do all base colours first and highlight them all later, I decided to try and highlight as I went along as I already had that colour out. I may revert to the way I did before. Thank you for your kind words on the dwarves so far.
