Cancon 2013 DBA – Koguryo Koreans – 7

2012-12-06 00.13.48There was very little painting progress last night. This due to the time I spent fiddling around and reset the WiFi security, SSIDs etc after the installation of our new 150Mbps Internet Connection (eat your heart out NBN waiters).

Yes, the Internet now flies at warp speed through Thomo’s Singapore Hole.

As for how painting on the Koreans went, I managed to give all the armour a brush with Citadel’s Chainmail colour. It now looks suitably steely. The general himself has been given a golden cuirass, partly because he is the general and partly because I wanted to see if it worked. It works!

I also managed to get five of the horses painted in their base colour as well (they’ll be the dark brown ones). Next will be the chestnuts and a white (for the general) and black horse and then I can pick out the blazes and socks for them.

What I didn’t get done last night was to wash the flash areas or the armour although I did also spend some time looking at Korean historical dramas on the Internet for future inspiration.

Tonight I am off to Anthony’s for a game so if I do any more painting when I get back, it will be just to do those washes – both are 10 minute jobs only. Otherwise, there will be no progress tonight at all. One thing I have discovered in the past – even when you don’t feel like painting or don’t have the time, try and do at least one colour. It is amazing how fast figures get painted when you do that.

    And yes, maybe I should do something about taking better photographs!

    Nah.. looks all good to me.. in fact, they are by now up to the standard of some of the supposedly ‘finished’ paintjobs I have seen…

      I remember many years ago at the club that used to meet at Lindfield there was one wargamer who I won’t name but who used plastic figures. They had really very poor paint jobs on them but he was happy, to him it was art and they looked like what they were meant to be.

      In many ways I admired him and thought, “if only I could paint like that I could paint 100 armies a year”.

    I enjoy painting, but I’m really quite slow at it. It’s sorta like watching paint dry…

      Minimum of one colour per night works – the painting goes quite quickly then.
