Well the orcs are now primed and I have had time to do a bit of work on them. Twenty of them. Way too many. This is proving to be hard work. There is a lot of them, they are big miniatures and the plan is to put in a lot of detail. Even the priming was hard. I often don't prime miniatures conventionally. I use a base coat of the primary colour and by the time I have gone over it several times, there is enough paint. Coupled with the spray on varnish it makes the figures pretty tough. So I decided to paint up six this time (one of each pose) and then two block of eight.
Even using a rattle can was a pain to get decent coverage on the figure because of the way figures and some dryads as well. Not the current project but something I am thinking about doing in the near future.
I usually aim to do a post a day at least one month a year. The flow is with me at the moment so I am hoping that I can keep this going. With a bit of luck I can keep it
