Trying to force myself to get into the habit of posting regularly again and also to get my hobby-mojo back up and running, so forgive the mundane feel of this post.
More prep work on my Saxons and some Dark Ages terrain done over the weekend. The Saxons were all cleaned and based and eventually primed grey, ready for paint. Going with very simple basing of dirt and (eventually) grass, no rocks. Will keep the project quick as far as painting and so momentum should remain strong. Also cleaned up and put together some Woodland Scenics 4-5” trees (14 of them) and based them on washers, added basing medium and primed the bases, ready for a swift drybrush and grass-ing. Last of all in this bunch, I clipped and cleaned up, then also stuck onto washers some plastic Wattle Fencing (by Renedra) which were likewise primed, ready for a quick drybrush. Metal bases for all means that they should work nicely once I get some magnetic strips to stick inside that plastic tub for transporting to games shops, etc.
I also stuck together this 4Ground Dark Ages Hovel. A really simple and attractive build. The faux fur they use for “thatched roof” was fun to muck about with. Their instructions on how to make it more “thatch” and less “fur” were fun using a toothbrush and watered down PVA glue. A wee trim here and there and hey presto (!), not a bad finished result. I can even see me using this in my fantasy rpg sessions. 4Ground makes other designs that I’m thinking to invest in for the future.
That’s it for this lot. Next up, perhaps revisiting those Robotech minis that I never finished?
