|This model is old-school 25mm. Next to modern figures she's very much a petite lady|
|Also in shot, minging paint blanket on which I work to avoid making a mess. |
Records do not disclose when it was last washed.
Then on a roll I threw together the hay cart in the pack. A super simple model which took two minutes to assemble. Added to a Warbases draught horse and with a converted dark-ages infantryman to guide it along it'll make another centrepiece for Lion Rampant games.
Around this time for the PVA to dry had occurred and so out with the tester pot browns. A quick lick of paint dried in minutes and was ready for a drybrushing. The stakes were getting there. Then back into the Warbases bag to assemble a 'Grub Hut' from their scenery range. Essentially the frame for a generic hovel from around 500-1500ad it is not really a finished model and the company admits as such, but it is a sturdy template around which one can add your own detail. at £3.50 it seemed a bargain, and should be tough enough to survive club use.
Time to finish the stakes:
|So very tired now.|
OK by now it was getting late but I was grimly determined to finish the job. A quick application of PVA in patches and a dunk in some dark moorland static grass, followed by a coat of (20 year old GW) brown ink to shade the stakes. And they're done.
For scraps, they look pretty good. and I found the darker scatter worked well on this background. It may make an appearance in a project soon.
All over the most intense session of model making and painting I've had in a couple of years. I went to bed burned out but satisfied.
To think I used to be able to do that three or four nights a week though...
