Busy Week, But Not With MiniaturesTuesday, February 21, 2012
So there's not much in the way of anything new here, but I'm attempting to at least keep this blog updated at least once a week. I'd have gotten some more work done with my Space Wolves, but somehow I found out that when I purchased some shoulder pad bits on eBay using my PayPal account, my old address was used for shipping. It's been over ten days, and while I did set up mail forwarding, I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever see them. I don't know who to be more annoyed at right now, Paypal or USPS.
|Yep, I'm a messy person.|
In the meantime, I've been
working on my friend's figures for Dragon Age roleplay sessions and I've been learning how to paint red hair and grey tones. Both are a bit tough right now. You can also see on the axe I'm sort of attempting some NMM technique there. To say the least, it's easy to understand how something is done, to do it is a horse of an entirely different color. The other dwarf will be my chance at painting a cloak, we'll see how that goes. So far the most frustrating thing is trying to get the first layers of paint to stick on the Army Painter primer I put on. The stuff ended up smooth and is repelling the watered down paint. You can also see it's extremely hard to keep the paint on once it's dried.
