A Busy Day But Nothing Finished

I've done lots of stuff done today, but finishing anything proved to be impossible. I have done a little bit of figure painting but I've spent more time painting bases. I spent a lot of time digging out some old kobolds which I think are going to be my next project.

As part of finishing of the dwarves, I painted their bases. Then I foolishly got some sand out to do a base. Then it didn't stop. Anything on the tabletop that needed sand n the base got a dusting, The few that have dried even got some paint. It started with the Kobolds, then moved onto a few Vikings some sci fi stuff and finally some zombies. When I get the urge to do some basing, I tend to go for it in a big way as I hate doing it. I might get something finished tomorrow but as I have parents evening, I doubt I will get much time to do anything.

    1. I guess whilst they are on the workbench at least I can admire them. I guess they all end up in a box sooner or later. I need a purpose to get them finished.

  2. Ah, I do basing en masse as well, it tends to get dirty and sand is everywhere so best to go large and rarely :D

    1. I need to work with a plan to make it easier. I should put sand on the bases when I glue the figures down. I am debating pinning figures to the bases, will cut down on the amount og glue on the base.

    1. Busy is good? You don't get to see the pile of junk next to the bench. I am not a completer finisher more of a shaper/initiator.

    1. I might have to make that my explanation for when I turn up with figures that don't have texture on the bases,

    1. Busy or too much time on my hands. I am hiding from my other half, its easier..

      This is probably a bad thing.

      But at least I am getting stuff done again.
