NaBloPoMo #23

Welcome to Capricorn (Astrologically speaking).

So, I managed to get my skeletons primed, but I’m a little skeptical about how successful I was with it. I always paint arms separate from the rest of the body, so I can get the details under the arms or behind the shields (or bolters) without too much effort. Same with these skeletons. I primed the bodies and base as one assembly, but as I started on the arms (which includes the standard), I ran out of white primer, which I’m using to speed painting up. Rather than go to the game store and buy more, I found some other paint. It is listed as “Ivory” on the can, so I used it. It flowed strangely, in some places barely covering the plastic, in other places pooling, and in some instances bubbling. By the time I decided enough was enough, I got decent coverage and very little loss of detail. However, I won’t be home this weekend until Sunday, so I won’t know how workable this paint is until then. At this point, I’m too late in the month for it to matter; I have to have the minis painted by next Saturday at 9PM.

Otherwise, I have my current campaign stuff on my mind for now. We’ll see if I manage to get anything posted tomorrow, as I’ll be running at this time in the evening. Maybe I’ll get something posted before the game. Two weeks ago, I got caught in a browser barf that resulted in me posting twice in about 20 hours. This week I don’t think I’ll have that problem, so we’ll see.
