I’ve been at a conference away from home for a few days now. One of the advantages of this is that I have had more painting time than I usually do in a house with three small children. I typically paint twelve figures in a month as I usually paint about two and a half hours a week.
I brought twelve figures with me on the trip with high hopes. You see I am in a race with The Galloping Major, I want to finish one of each of his figures before he releases more of them. I’m in the home stretch and this trip is gonna help. In addition to the FIW troops, i brought along some Copplestone Neo-sovs to paint for my new Dead of Winter project, so I brought some Mantic plastic zombies along as well. (though one was popped off my painting base by the TSA guys when they searched my bag due to having all sorts of funny tools and paint bottles in it). I watched for ten minutes as the airport security swiped every paint bottle and tested it for bomb traces.
Inside of twenty-four hours of arriving in the hotel room, I managed to paint five rangers from start to finish. Here’s a rough shot taken with my iPad, sorry for the poor quality, better pics are on the way.
