Jump ahead to today and things are looking much better. I got a nice, early start on painting as planned. The first order of business was to finish the jump packs off. They are done now, writing and all, and just need gluing and varnishing. I may wait on the decals regardless of how much time I end up so that I have a chance to read up on how to use the Vallejo decal fluids so I get it right the first time. Three marines need decals, so I can get six others finished today if I discount the decals. The squad just needs base touch-ups on the painting front, which is trivial, so I'm content to call that squad finished.
|Jump packs: done.|
Glaives - done
Reds - done Purity Seals - done Blacks - done Silvers - done
Writing - done
- Any details I missed - mostly done
- Wings - primed
- Decals - may wait
- Touch up the base edges
All told, I think finishing today is a reasonable goal. I may not get to varnishing everything, but all the models (save the ones needing decals) should be glued and effectively finished if I can keep up the pace I've had all day. After these two squads are done, I'm not sure what I'll turn my attention to. I have some ideas, but that's a matter for another post...
