|After a (partial) day's work.|
|The new clubhouse leader.|
Future planning is to try and accomplish over the weekend what I wanted to get done yesterday. Today and tomorrow have no room for painting, but Sunday should provide plenty of opportunities. Despite yesterday's shortcomings, I feel pretty confident that I'll be able to finish the assault marines by the end of the month, leaving the entirety of March to figure out the Sanguinary Guard. I also need to get on the jump packs for the squad. There are a couple gaps that will require greenstuffing, and while I'm at it I want to fill in most or all of the Death Company crosses on the jump packs as they've caused me plenty of head-scratching and grief on the marines already. I need to do something with them, as simply ignoring them isn't working for me, but I'm still at a loss for how to finish them.
P.S. - I also forgot to mention something you might have noticed already. While I like using the prescription bottles to mount the models while painting them, they fall over constantly because they're so top heavy. While it hasn't caused any damage yet, it's just a matter of time before disaster strikes. I decided to put in a stitch now, to avoid the need for ten in the future, and tried taking the caps off the bottles. I lose a bit of utility this way, mostly when holding the model upside down, but the change is a good one. My only real concern is that the poster putty seems to be soaking up the heat from my hands and getting a bit too soft for comfort. It's still plenty tacky and I don't think it will be an issue, but it bears watching all the same.
