RE: Stuart - Stuart - 01-01-2013

Just primed my Dystopian Legions FSoA crew with the intention of painting them the same colour as my Necromunda Delaque gang. Unfortunately I can't find my painting notes for the Delaque gang anywhere, and I'm having trouble identifying the base colour I used Sad

RE: Stuart - Stuart - 01-01-2013

Sorted it I think - I reckon it was Desert Yellow. Watered down base coat of such applied to 4 FSoA models, just to break up the Goblins a bit.

Tallarn Sand seems to be the "new" Desert Yellow in the revised Citadel range, but is presumably slightly different, so when my current pot runs out I might take the opportunity to try the "Desert Yellow" in the Vallejo Game Color range (supposedly an exact match for the previous Citadel range) - I've been looking for an excuse to try some different paints anyway.

Going back to work this week has been a shock to the system, and I haven't summoned the energy to tackle any painting the past couple of evenings. Hope to make up for this at the weekend.

RE: Stuart - Gareth - 04-01-2013

I understand that feeling. I haven't been on delivery since early December. Next Monday I am back in work, knowing how out of breath this bloody cough leaves me. So I hope, I can finish work early enough to allow me my target of one hour a day.

RE: Stuart - Stuart - 04-01-2013

Sounds like a nice long Christmas break, hope you weren't suffering for the duration. Can empathise on the cough - I'm still shaking off the last effects of man-flu from before Christmas, but these things always leave me with a lingering cough that seems to be made worse by these cold, damp mornings.

RE: Stuart - Gareth - 04-01-2013

Well trip to the docs said viral infection, which means acute bronchitis. Had two weeks leave after Xmas, and am still suffering over 4 weeks from the start. Still it's not anything time won't heal.

RE: Stuart - Stuart - 05-01-2013

Kili and Balin done, and nearly finished Thorin.
