Not getting much done is now becoming the new norm, however, this week I managed to get two figures painted. These weren’t figures I had originally earmarked to buy and paint for this diorama but I discovered them several months ago, thought they would fit in perfectly with what I had in mind and so I recently purchased them. If I hadn’t bought them now then it would have been to late as the diorama would have moved on and I wouldn’t have been able place them where I wanted them to go.
The figures are a four piece peasant set and came from Gripping Beasts. They were nicely sculpted and although they came with tools of their own I elected to use items which came with the Tabletop World accessories pack instead.
Not the best of photos I’m afraid as I used my iPhone to take them. Now I know most people like their iPhones but alas I buck convention. I hate mine with a vengeance and think it’s the biggest piece of shit going. I’ll go further, I hate all Apple products too. Needless to say my kids think I’m mad but I much prefer Samsung and just as soon as the contract I’m on ends I’ll be going back to them.
The figures need a little dry brushing but I’ll do that when yey are in situ and I don’t need to man handle them any more.
The aim for the coming week is to paint the other two figures and if possible get them placed on the diorama. Ordinarily that would be a formality but not these days. I’ve also got to start painting some of the birds and animals I bought. Like these figures, some of them need to be completed and placed on the diorama before I box myself in. Looking further ahead at what needs doing I still have the Barn to be painted, 12 mounted knights and half a dozen or so other foot figures. Not entirely sure if they will all fit in yet as space is starting to get tight but time will tell.
