I got the Frogherd finished this evening and made a good start on a second.
All of the ones I have painted have armoured footwear. Initially I thought this odd as they would sink into the mire… then it dawned on me that there might be things in a swamp that you wouldn’t want to step in with bare feet.
This evening I had guests over. My sister in law and her partner were up visiting from England so I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked… in reality I got more done than expected. Expectation was zero.
I had put a number of layers of the dipping inks on the red armour. It stopped working like it should so I decided to try a bit if glazing and badly executed edge highlighting. Unfortunately my red was of the vintage of the orange and yellow!
Tomorrow I go over the lacing in white then choose a nice contrasting colour to go over it.
Okay technically, the only thing that is showing is skin. My plan was to have hundreds, nay thousands to flock to the blog. If you are one of them then sorry. Well I suppose it is better than when he opened the box he needed to get help…
So I did some skin… then we played Ark. hopefully I will get some more painting done tomorrow.
I heard an interesting question the other day… discuss… ‘what happens if you put a werewolf on the moon?’
Huzzah, I actually sat down and did some painting this evening. This time I went for my 15mm Samurai types.
As I was driving my eldest to drama I was totally confused by a hill/island where there shouldn’t be one… turned out to be a totally weird looking cloud. You can just about make it out in the photo below.
This evening I got my finger out and started on some of the 15mm Samurai forces.
I have made a sort of Bandit force that includes some Ronin and a renegade monk.
The above were all painted with the Dipping Inks. I am really pleased with the majority of them. The only one that is a bit weird is the black shadow dip. I like it, but the guy front right has his kimono painted with it. It is more a grey green. Basically to me, it is a naming thing rather than a useless colour. For full disclosure I had heard this and ordered it anyway as it is a useful colour.
I still have the following dips to try out.
Hopefully I will get some more done tomorrow. I am now off to order the shrine set from 3DAlienworlds.
It’s my mates birthday at the end of the month so I have got him some market stalls for his Monster hunting games.i sad a couple of issues, fire off, the corner of the front curled a bit. So to hide it I am going to base each one and get some ground cover up to the edge. Either that or stick a box in front of it. Second problem is the thatched roof. It is meant to come in two bits but for some reason my printer decided it was going tombow each end… easy fix… Inshall ‘build it’ in the software and print it as one piece. I will still probably mess around with greenstuff with this one… always good to have a bit of practice…
I also did some pinning of a model that I have had since the 90’s I found it in a box and decided it would be ideal for the Silver Bayonet… can you guess what it is from?
Finally I have just seen a Great value kickstarter for anyone with a 3D printer. The kickstarter is there to support the people of Kharkiv in Ukraine. You can find it Here.
