So the printer is still working, so much so that I actually managed to do another miniature. I got the first of the nine done, unfortunately he lost a hand and rein in the printing process. Luckily a 15th Century Perry mini hand fitted just fine. I will get a Greenstuff rein added when everything has solidified.
As you can see from the above I also managed to get some paint on the bard miniature… he happens to be called Tom and lives near the old forest and has a water nymph as his wife. I still have a bit more to do on him, but he is definitely getting there.
Unfortunately yesterday when I was chopping back some bushes I got a bit of a smack in the eye. It stung like a bugger and then went away. This morning I could open the eye very easily and the pain was a bit painful to say the least. To cut a long story short then I decided I needed to rest it. Sadly my pirate patch mountain has disappeared so my wife came up with a cunning idea… wear my glasses but cover the sore eye lens… now I didn’t want to freak out my kids so I drew an eye on the tape….
Anyway lots of eye baths in salt water later this popped out…
Over the course of the day smaller bits have also come out, it is still stinging, but nowhere near to what it was this morning
The down side of having one eye covered is that depth perception is reduced… sadly stupidity cannot be blamed on it… guess what happened with the printed bases today?

Sorry to hear about your eye- must have been painful having a lump that big in it. Hope it gets better soon.

Ooooh, nasty! 🙂 Hope that clears up! I have an eye horror story from last year but it’ll maybe wait until another day (it does have a happy end)!
Ow! That’s no good at all. Hope you recover fully and quickly!
Ouch! I can’t help but think of Monty Python and the Black Knight as your injury/health misfortune goes from bad to worse. Hope it improves soon. 🙂
Sounds nasty, hope it gets better quick!
Ouch, that is scary. I hope you’re feeling better and can lose the eye patch quickly! I can’t imagine trying to do any hobbying with that kind of pain or lack of depth perception 😦
