I have closed the shop this morning for a break, and am trying to decide whether to bother opening after lunch, this is the first time since taking over in 2000 the shop has been closed for illness, not the first time either of us have been ill though, I am old school and believe I have a duty to the ....... screech! Maybe I am just daft.
I have now lost a week of painting just as I had got my third phalanx started on, I think it would have been at the basing stage by now. I still don't feel like picking up a brush so it could be next week before I get back on track. I did manage to finish my very last figure of 2017 just before the lurgy hit, a Seleucid infantry officer, now this time I used the Tamiya Smoke wash on the armour once the figure had been varnished. I may still do things the usual way for the bulk of the figures and leave this shiny effect for the officers and generals, any thoughts?
