September is proving to be extremely busy at work, and just in general, for reasons I’m not sure about. The days are flying past and it doesn’t feel like there are enough hours in the day right now.
I’m also about to begin a new term of Open University this week, which (if all goes well) will be my last year of studying. This week has a lot crammed in, but I still managed to grab an hour tonight to work on some minis that are needing that push over the line.
I’ve been working on my Imperial Guard Sentinel first, as this required two drybrushes; one to bring the colour up after the ink wash, and one for highlighting the ridges and edges. I also picked on some details with the thin brush, but need to go back and fill in some here or there. There’s also some decals to add that will help with the monotone look of the walker.
Secondly, I’ve been basing the Elves in my list. These have been a mix of Wood Elves of Lothlorien and some of the High Elves of Rivendell, but all united under the same banner as minis that I bring out every painting session and never actually base.
The same goes for the Galadhrim Knights, a box of minis I bought some time back because I loved the look of them. They fit in quite nicely as harassment miniatures in the Lothlorien force.
Lastly, I was finishing up two Rangers, and working on a third for part 3 of my “Rangers of the North” posts. These guys are coming along gradually, and I’m mixing up the colours of them as I go to keep the figures fresh. There’s a lot of repeated poses with these guys so I felt it was necessary to give them a bit of a tweak here and there.
Anyways, thanks always for reading, and have a great week.
