    • Nice! You could paint a few of those as statues / terrain as well.  
    • I've used fine sand and glue. It works great then you can place the grass on top. Plus its a lot cheaper than green stuff or milliput. 
    • I've been planning a computer/paint desk for some time. I've been rearranging the dining room that was our pc area. I've built one bookshelf so far and planning to build another.    The desk has had a couple redesigns, and I did a different angle on the ends that will meet the book case. Mostly due to the wood I already have on hand.  I'll post more as I finish it up. 
    • Snakes and ladders or Ludo.   Got onto the hard stuff with a copy of Donald Featherstones wargames rules.
    • More progress.         Added a bit of Clear Red to her cheekbones; no other changes to the face.  The rest of it has been work on her clothing and accessories.   Her vest is coming along nicely.  I did more highlighting -- several layers of thin Clear Red, then a bit of 2:1 Clear Read/Fire Orange for some of the brightest spots.  I think the yellow base coat of her sleeves is too noticeable.  Perhaps a really, really thin glaze of Pure White to make that read as white.   Her skirt, on the other hand, is fighting me every step of the way.  I decided I wanted it blue rather than white, and took it down to Snow Shadow, then a wash of Formula P3 Blue Ink, then started highlighting with Snow Shadow, then a blend of Snow Shadow and Linen White, and finally some straight Linen White in a few places.  But it's just not coming together.   The blends are lousy compared to the fairly smooth blending on her vest.  I'm thinking maybe of starting over on the skirt -- again -- and basing it in the deepest shade I want, then highlighting up from there.  Maybe Breonne Blue as the base?   All of her belt-doodads are logically made of leather, and I've got base coats of brown on them -- no shading or highlighting as yet.  I may re-do the mug as a metal, though.  Too much brown!   I haven't even begun her staff, but I'm thinking perhaps the crystal on the end should be vibrant red.
