RE: Painting Manhood restored
Finished Watchmen02 - 186 figs & out. Just about 2 months
from when I started.

OK I still have the spray protection coats (a shot of Gloss
Varnish & then one of Matt to kill the shiny. I won't
do this for at least couple of weeks to make sure all
the paint is dry/set.

My brushes made it to the finish line (barely) my
paints (mostly Warpaints ) made it even some of
my years old GW paints hung in there.

I have ordered 3 new brushes to replace the shattered
veterans (Insane detail, Detail, Small Drybrush)
and pots of Warpaint Uniform grey, Army Green &
Angel Green) for my next planned painting project.
(the green's are for GoW Cogs & the grey for the Locust
uniforms).

The new supplies will take at least a week to get to
me . I think in the meanwhile I'll see if my old brush
is up tp painting some Locust skin (I'm using Ash Grey
from Warpaints).

Well at my age everything hurts anyway but I only paint
in about 20-40 minute segments & I have a comfortable chair.

The person who created the ZBP figs had a thing for leg wrappings
& rope belts which were an eye strain to paint even with my
magnifying glasses.

My next project is my long neglected Gears of War figs & they
are a mass of belts & buckles. I really don't see any of them
on either side could handle taking a crap as it would take forever
getting everything undone Zombie09

RE: Painting Manhood restored
Lets see the prior post was in Jan & its now late May and my
Gears of War Project inches along. I done the Cogs figs (4 Base Game
plus 4 more conversions figs). I just finished the Base Game 6 Drones
and still have around 50 figs to do.

I did a lot of conversions based on the 1 Expansion FFG did before
the Game went OoP so I made myself double the number of figs I
need to paint.

I don't know why this Project takes so long (well besides I don't paint)
maybe it's because of all those buckles & belts just don't motivate me.
The only reason I just finished the Drone figs was because I added
companion dogs figs to Zombicide Black Plague and painted up the
dogs.The Drones were still on the paint table & I just felt guilty not
finishing them.

I love the GoW board game & doing all the conversion work but painting
them just seems to be a chore. The figs have been setting around
base coated as I did the SoB Minecart Wave 1 figs and Zombicide Black Plague
figs.
