Saturday Rain

Apparently it rains a lot in NI. It gets a bit depressing. As a result, things don't get done because you really can't be bothered. Well that's what Inso has said anyway.

What does it mean? It's been a slow week, that's what.

This week Inso has started to paint the two OGrymn. He has based them and painted the bases. He has undercoated them both and one of them now has albino skin. Unfortunately, the rain set in and that is as far as the painting went.

So...what else then? Well, Inso has prepared a group of Vasa marines (for Void) and a couple of sci-fi mins from Heresy. There are 12 in all and they have all been cleaned and glued to bases. They still need to be properly based (GS and sand) and painted. He has another 14 Viridian marines to do but one step at a time.

Anything else? Tyranids, that's what. A while ago Inso assembled a big box of Tyranids that consisted of 20 Gaunts, 3 Warriors and a Carnifex. Today they got pulled out of their box and had sand glued to their bases. It's a small step...but it's a start. Inso still needs to do a bit of tidying up on the bigger Tyranids but just getting them out of the box is an achievement.

It is funny really. When the painting dries up, Inso always finds other little jobs to be getting on with. He has been rooting through boxes and sorting things today. I reckon that is the reason the Void miniatures got started...he didn't realise he had them!!!
