Best Laid Plans Go *&^% Up
Well, the holiday is almost over and we'll be back home after the weekend. I have a wedding to be dragged along to on Saturday so the weekend itself is a washout as far as painting is concerned. This means that my painting project for the summer holidays has (yet again) ended in abject failure.
I have been able to clean up, base and undercoat my gladiators and chinese bandits but haven't been able to even start painting them. It looks like they may end up back in the box of things to do. This is the second time I've tried to paint on holiday and it just doesn't seem to work out. I think I'll stick to the preparation side of things in the future.
I have, however, rejuvinated my interest in some old projects and am keen to crack on with the stuff I have left back on the workbench at home, especially the AK47 disctatorship army that is well advanced but needs to be pushed forward. The target for this is October half term, so the clock is already ticking.
