Day 29   -  Friday May 28th


More scenery painting.
Testing some colours out on the tents - Deneb Stone or Bleached Bone??

Did some brick walls - after some playing with various greys, I settled on Eshin Grey as  a basecoat and then Codex for the main highlight - probably add a lighter drybrush, but I am not going to do much more than basic paintjobs on scenery.

Day 29 - this week has worn me out. All I think I can accomplish today is reading thru the emails about our campaign and having done that, I will head for padres latest instalment as it remains unread at this point. Then I will attempt sleep.

It is definitely feeling like the end of a four day week.  My apology for not getting to this thread sooner today.

Last night I got 3 Perry WotRs archers constructed, that's it.  Oh and painted gray on spearmen as a touch up, plus left over paint to a GW Empire metal archer.  He came in a two pack over ten years ago, and the first one I added to some plastic figures for a unit of 5 archers as a Westerland detachment unit during the time of the Marienburg Crisis campaign.

Tonight it will be more archers, and painting something.  Plus I worked on the Imagi-Nations campaign that Artoban, Gankom and I are currently starting.  Did up a fluff piece regarding how the situation exists after the first battle of the war.  And finalized pieces on mapping, supply, and scouting, as well as current NPCs, Units, and campaign continuing from here.

At last! Lgs open and some supplies. Sub on the corax white, black acrylic for Fort, nylon and agrax wash (gloss Yipes!) and some tech for bases.
Plus assembled a couple of shadows. Now, back to our regularly scheduled events.

Day 30   -   Saturday May 30th

Finished up the floors of some Tabletop Workshop buildings I have - now to get on with the walls.
Painting on the fields continues.
Did some trousers/pants on some figures on my tabletop.

Then discovered a nightmare idiot thing I had done some days ago. Grrrrrrrrr.

Day 31  -  Sunday May 31st

Too bloody windy to respray my disasters.

Worked on my CoachHouse and fields with lot so Codex Grey, some Black Wash, and then even some green.
Painted a few coats as I went through more paint pots.

Fairly productive day even after yesterday's angst.  :closed-eyes:

Progress here has become slow on the 28mm Perry WotRs and Euro Mercs.  I get going each day, but yesterday again only completing three archers.  Oh well, still constructing these figures every day for the last 10 in a row.  Did backs of 11 shields last night, so been painting the last 20 in a row, and hobbying the last 30 too.  There is no way this would be happening without this combined effort folks are making.

Got in a game of Lion Rampant yesterday morning with a new player and another guy that had played twice in person before the public health issue.  This time it was on Zoom ... used the 24 point Norman and Italian lists.  First time the Italians won in the last 5 games, and the slightly experienced player pulled it off using a tactical maneuver on the table top I hadn't seen used previously with this scenario.  Fun to see it happen.

Lots of things going on this week in the house.
Wednesday 27:
Gaming day, friend came over and we got a small skirmish game going + coffee

Thursday:
Started glueing heads, weapons, shield that are lying around in boxes. I think having so many and not knowing my models well, is going to lead to a lot getting lost.

Friday 29:
Short day, did a timeline of my haqqislam and rethinking the logo since it seems the official logo will be change. Not sure if happy or not

Saturday 30:
Nothing, went for a hike with some friends, end up having coffee blah blah blah..nothing got done.

Sunday 31:
Today, free day so I got to paints some spearmen that I had around. Mostly models that were damage, but I didn't want to concentrate.

Days 29 & 30 - Arranged Warzone minis into units; sold 80 minis and added one to the painting queue.

Day 31 - A little bit of conversion work, drilling and pinning.

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

Tidying up my Conquistador themed Empire army. I built it between 2008-12
I noticed the small archer unit was undermanned and decided to add a full command. Then I checked the rulebooks and realised archers/huntsmen CANT have full commands

All I really have to do with this army is finish the bases AND paint a unit of hand gunners. Shouldn't take too long

GP, bold me up for every day up to now because I have done at least an hour's work every day, sometimes twice that, on the end of season campaign reports for 5 active players. The 6th player, almost wholly inactive, is a GP and kinda has his hands full with the pandemic! I'll not bother him just now!

I am almost done. It's a process in which each report gets written regarding the player's own forces and situation, every one entirely different from the others, then I add a general overview of the realm, skewed with respect to their perspectives, biases, interests (etc), to one player's report, then for the next player's more general report I use the previous player's text as a starting point and modify accordingly, and in parts very heavily. During this process I realise I have to go back and add things in to one or more previous players' reports, and so each of 5 or 6 reports grows and changes simultaneously. By this evening I will begin by reading the first report carefully, correcting and modifying as necessary, adding all the technical (rules-based) facts and figures on the bottom (army sizes, supply points generated and required etc), e-mail and move on to the next.

Usually, once all are done and sent out, I turn the reports into a general report for the thread, either inserting shorts stories into it, or using what came out in the reports to inspire a story of particular events of NPCs, and illustrating with models I have recently been working on. That's what I'll do this time too.

It's been a busy few days!

Day 29 finished up some fluff for my 40k armies.

Day 30 & 31 I dug down and worked on painting. Nearly 50 guys are nearly finished, just have to do some last touches!
