On the workbench, just started another batch of 30 zombies, with another 30, a Necromancer, some Wraiths, more Grave Markers and my Copplestone 15mm Picts off to the side ready to go with bases drybrushed and rims repainted. It's been a while, years in fact, since I did some real intensive batch painting, so, part of me is considering trying to beat my personal best of about 200 28mm scale minis in a month, especially as I can churn out zombies pretty quickly. This batch is just started, you can see a few have the skin blocked in as I was using up the last of the paint on the pallet.
I've also put together ANOTHER 40 Zombies using the rising from the ground parts on the sprues, but then I ran out before getting a full 60. I'm planning on doing a large block of skeletons, but ran out of lipped bases so they are on order.
|Moar Zombie, Zombie, Zombie...|
|So much rimming...|
I'm looking forwards to getting to the Picts, despite still not having put last years on the table yet. Maybe because I know how quickly I'll be able to get through them. Small victories ya know.
In other news, a couple of rulebooks turned up today, I picked up the Macedonian and Punic Wars supplement, as I have the base rules already, and I'm toying with the (new project) a multibased 15mm Celt/Gaul army that I could also use for Hail Caesar or whatever, and I figured I'd grab the Legions of Battle one because it probably has a similar basing scheme, so I should be able to run the same force for both. Here's hoping. My Northstar order is also out for delivery, so hopefully I'll have the last figures for my OG&M force soon.
On the subject of projects, my first painting one took a hit today, as a surprise Grymkin CID (Community Integrated Development) just landed, adding a few new options to the army, that hopefully should be released this year.
|Some light reading.|
And to finish off, here's a quick shot of the minis I've rattled through already. 60 Zombies including a Leader, Musician and Standard Bearer, a Necromancer, and 4 Grave Markers/Objectives. Hopefully I'll have another full unit of Zombies added soon enough. Now, you'll have to excuse me whilst I go froth over the Grymkin CID update.
|Not bad for a week right?|
