Ho, ho, ho-ing my way through the Spencer Smiths!

Just a quick update this morning. I managed to finish basecoating the first dozen Spencer Smith/Holger Eriksson cavalry. They now stand ready for the weekend painting marathon. Primarily metallics remain for the artillery crew, but I must finish the gun carriages and barrels for the cannon. Plus detail work for General de Latté and Captain von Lickshpittel. I feel like the white rabbit at the beginning of Alice and Wonderland , who dashes by Alice, checks his watch, and exclaims, “I’m late, I’m late!”

P.S.
6:15PM -- I have just finished the 12 artillery crew. I've got the guns to finish later this evening. Then, it's just the general and ADC to finish in between the different painting steps on the first dozen SSM/HE cavalry. I might actually be able to finish everything.

As I write this, it has just begun to snow here on Vancouver Island. The ground is slowly getting a white patterning, so I'll enjoy it for now (it is supposed to turn to rain later today . . . *sigh*).

Remember, Stokes, to take your time . . . haste makes for mistakes . . . and you don't want those.

Have a great holiday time.

I went to the Christalmarket in Daley Plaza again today to take one last look at those buildings. Nope, I couldn't bring myself to buy them.
