Okay yesterday, I foolishly said it was warm, but not South temperature… foolish me!
Taken in the garden at 11.00 this morning.
it was still 26 degrees at 18.00 this evening… anyway onto the elves…
They are pretty much done apart from the bases, so I did indeed manage to get them finished by the end of the weekend.
I am honestly not sure how I am going to base them…I might stick some of my home made flock into the coffee grinder and get it a lot finer. I will have to have a think.
So, apart from the shields, hair and the metallics, these were painted in contrast paint. I do quite like it for this scale, I am still a little ambivalent about it in 28mm. Tomorrow I think I will make a start on some 15mm Lizardmen. I have just remembered that I have a ‘Tin Soldier’ 15mm Aztec DBA army sitting there too. They would make a nice opposing force to the Scalians.
Shortly after taking the photo above – this happened…
These lucky ones hit the table, the unlucky ones hit the floor. I think they all survived.
Tomorrow I am helping my in laws dismantle a lean to and put another one up in it’s place. Wish me luck, if the temperature is anything like today I am not going to be a happy bunny. I have become acclimatised to a Shetland Summer.
