It's a color scheme I started years ago, and it looks better on some figures than on others. 

 

Fighter chick is done.

Well, we baked many dozens of cookies (maybe 36?) .

 

It wasn’t a total bust from a hobby viewpoint; we got in a good miniatures game this morning, but after my son and his fiance departed, I looked at the weather and decided that it was more important to cast than to paint, because perfect weather days don’t show up too often.

These are from Nuernberger Meisterzinn molds, which make figures in three or four pieces with separate heads.  I have a heap of heads, 18 horses, 10 cavalry bodies (I already had some cast), about 35 infantry and most of a cannon crew, so my French Revolution project is about to get some reinforcements.

Not going to have anything finished to add. Too many interruptions throughout the weekend, hands acting up a bit, and now it is time to watch Saving Private Ryan (annual mandatory viewing for me on Memorial Day). I tried, I failed, but I learned: try a smaller batch of figures next painting binge.

 

Perhaps we can do this again, on another weekend. I'll try just a few figures then.

 

You've all done very well!!!

The plan is to do this again over Thanksgiving, if you want to start preparing. ::D:

Thanks to everyone who followed along. There's still a couple hours left, but I'm out.

Don't bake them! It never turns out well

 

 

 

The turbo dork metallic is perfect for this!

The blue looks just like die I have.

Midnight just passed by and these are what I was able to finish beforehand.

The camera wasn't kind to this one. It's very cute in person.

I had trouble with paint rubbing off  :(

I was careful to clean it well too.

He's very cute. :) 

 

 

Great work everyone!  We rocked it this year, with 52 painted models and "20" fresh castings.  That beats the last two years totals by a mile. <_<

 

Hope to see everyone again at Thanksgiving (3rd weekend in November).

I didn't actually finish anything, but I did finally pick up a paintbrush again for the first time this year, so I'm calling it a win.
