Assembled and primed a regiment of 20 line infantry for my 19th century ImagiNation. Intend to lay down the base colours and contrast paints tonight and tomorrow after work. Would like the unit to be finished by the end of next week so I can proceed with the next regiment, and a commander, so they can be fielded as a brigade in Black Powder.

Many and varied forces in progress according to waxing & waning whims.

I may never finish an army in my life.

Well over the month of October I burned through 30 minis I had primed in my pile. I rewarded myself by buying some terrain to paint up as well as started building up my new "to do" pile.

Going to try and get some priming done tonight as the weather is actually nice.

Half through my wife's ASOIAF army. Should have it done just in time for the rest of it to release >.<

In the wrong direction, I got my models to update my DW post codex. Built and primed, just need to clear the queue to work on them. So... wrong direction. :(

Ended up trying a completely different painting philosophy (painting 'inside out' and starting with faces and hair, instead of starting on the largest areas and working down to faces etc).

Spent the last two evenings basecoating, washing and highlighting the faces and hair of my 20 Ghepsmark Regulars. Hopefully will make a start contrast painting the tunics tonight before joining in One Page Rules' biannual Game Jam.

I made this change a few years ago and it is much easier.

My Pile of Shame was down to 0, so I started building my 2021 Pile of Shame by ordering an army of Republican Romans and an Army of Vikings from Victrix. That should keep me busy for a bit!

Yeah, its a bit slower going for me, but it also means I can actually try my best with painting base, wash and highlight. It's a little embarrassing to admit, but this is the first time in my (nearly 20 year long) hobby life that I have attempted highlights - I have always been afraid of ruining them.

The faces, hands and facial hair has now all been done to a satisfactory standard, and the bits of the model that are being contrasted have been tidied up. Tonight, I will most likely paint the hats and muskets.

Finished my wife's Targaryen army last night. Hopefully the Unsullied and Dragons get released soon, but I hear talk of delays. In the meantime I'm finishing the last units of the Night's Watch before their attachment box is released.

Next on the queue is my Deathwatch updates. Outriders and Vanguard marines mostly.

I painted the hats and shoes on my Ghepsmarkers last night, as well as 3/5ths of the musket wood stocks. Tonight, I finish the muskets, and maybe begin on the trousers!
