The humble 'To Do' list for this particular batch. I finally figured out, in about 2005 or so, that a haphazard approach was not getting the figures painted, hence lists that I can consult and update as things are completed. Hmmm. It only took me 20+ years to get to that point. Yes. 'Slow normal' as my maternal grandparents used to joke.
Today is very rainy and wet outside, so a perfect excuse to apply a couple of glossy coats to the 30-odd figures after breakfast and then prepare the Litko bases. My painting enthusiasm has had a much needed shot in the arm. Or is it simply that these are finally done, and I can check them off the ol' mental list? No matter. They are finished, look reasonably good to my eyes, and I can start thinking about the next batch. Prussian grenadiers in mitre caps. Or maybe those four new buildings? Decisions, decisions.
Temporary painting bases are still very much in evidence, but the finished battalion looks pretty good. The swallows nests, drums, and white gloves on three officers were the final bits, completed during afternoon and evening sessions.
