Finally a Bit of Painting Time. . .

Just a quick update today. Last night, I managed to get in a couple of hours of work on those last nine Spencer Smith cavalry. Finished the yellow turnbacks, tan breeches, and the blue saddle cloths. Naturally, I made a number of mistakes, which I then had to fix before quitting for the evening. But there was nothing too upsetting or time consuming, just some careful (re-) lining with GW Chaos Black. It felt good to be back in the saddle. Tonight, I’d like/hope to paint the blue coats. We’ll see if that actually happens. If so, that means the only things like the swords, scabbards, and a few assorted small bits will remain. With any luck at all, I might have the entire 30-figure unit finished with a photo or two in the next several days. Cross your fingers!

As soon as the whole unit is done then Spencer Smith figures really repay the work put into them.

I am looking forward to seeing the resulting photo's

I agree! To begin with I was a bit dubious about Spencer Smith figures as they seemed almost too basic, but now my first batch is nearing completion they really look the business.

I too am really looking forward to seeing the completed work. How's the packing task going?

No personal experience to allow me commenting on John's first point, but I warmly support the second!

Isn't it wonderful how relaxing a painting session can be?

I find that they energize me. They also (for a time) take me away from the day-to-day hassles of life that seems to refresh me . . . and, of course, I get rather jazzed at what I'm able to get accomplished in a session.
