Day 207 of 209 & Day 181 for 2022: Took a detour away from my various projects to organize an army of medieval figures for a game on Saturday ...

2 Knight units
2 light cav units
1 heavy crossbow unit
2 other crossbow units
1 skirmishing bow unit
1 heavy spear unit
2 other spear units
1 light spear unit

Also did some painting of hats, helmets, and boots on one of the crossbow units, and then based them up with some quick drying glue, sand and fine gravel. Will probably do some more of this kind of stuff in the morning.

Day 210 of 212 & Day 184 for 2022: Finished fine tuning more cream on 12 archers, and need to turn to the gray next.  If I create an issue with the latter will need to reach for the cream color again. :icon_mrgreen:

Day 211 of 213 & Day 185 for 2022: Fine tuned gray on the 12 archers.  It was a bit strange then seeing how there was still some cream to do on them, pain in my brain. :icon_rolleyes: :icon_lol:

Day 214 of 216 & Day 188 for 2022: Went back to the fine tuning of the cream on the 12 archers, and hopefully that is complete.

Day 215 of 217 & Day 189 for 2022: Did a bunch of organizing of figures and scenery for a trip to  visit my brother and niece and nephew for gaming and such.

However, it was the last day of the streak.  During the traveling I was just to tired to want to keep it going.

Maybe I'll keep tracking this for the rest of the year and see what happens, maybe not, and haven't decided yet.

Decided at least for the moment to switch my tally over to the "At Least 3 Days of Hobby" thread.
