Good day everyone!
Wow - what kind of a marathon (at least for me). In the end I lost much of my energy, which angers me a bit. Nevertheless - I still got some stuff finished and I am proud of it.
At least all infantry units have been covered in all their main colours and are ready to be painted further, washed and highlighted.
That's how the still to be finished infantrymen look like at the moment.
The plastic miniatures only need their scarfs and head gear, as well as the highlights on cothing and weapons, before they can be considered "ready for battle".
Same goes for the metal guys.
The cavalrymen do need some more steps until they can be considered finished, but that's no problem. We still can say:
The three chariot "drivers" are ready and prepared to mount their vehicles.
Same goes for the crossbowmen.
The sixth figure however ... and that is what bothers me ... has been finished without me actually noticing it. I know it sounds like a bad joke, but when I went to bed yesterday, after having playing on my computer for quite some time, I originally intended to get some ideas on how to differ the uniform of the general from the common troops.
But when I awoke this morning, the figure was finished and dried on my window board.
I honestly have no idea how I finished this figure. Maybe I was so tired, concentrated or in trance, that I didn't manage to actually (and of course consciously) am aware of the work I did on that fellow. Considering this I am quite impressed on how good he turned out.
Anyway - this ... "happening" ... concludes my marathon, as I am going back to work today and therefore won't be home for a few days.
In conclusion: Thanks to the help of my friend I was able to get quite far with my miniatures and though I wasn't able to make it through the whole project, I am happy we came that far. It means that the work to be done will be less in the future and more miniatures will be finished soon.
See you on the next update!
