|Heard about my herd ?|
I was awaiting the arrival of the DeeZee 'baby' mammoth so that I could paint all the mammoths at the same time.
|DZ animals, baby mammoth, wolves woolly rhino and elephant type thing|
By Wednesday the flash had been filed away the figures mounted onto their bases (more credit cards etc.) and the gunge added.
Thursday saw me finishing off the bases with pva and sand then waiting for a chance to spray their undercoat in between rain showers.
The first coats of base colour and skin colour for the mammoths was applied Thursday.
Friday was a complete loss due to a hospital visit in the morning (turns out I'm still ill, so no surprises there) and a clinic visit for a eye check that involves drops making you blind until nightfall ! (I could probably still have painted figures and I doubt anyone would have noticed the difference but nevertheless it wasn't until Saturday and Sunday that I made a big effort to complete the herd (now six figures strong !). I finished them in the usual TWD style (see last week's post for explanation) and a coat of matt varnish, still drying even as the photographs were taken.

Oh for those still here, the tusks aren't white as I haven't used white on figures for a long time as I find it too harsh (Daz white!). I use magnolia, which on models I find looks more natural (I know, I'll get my coat).
So that's it then for this week, next week the Thylancines will have been re-painted as I wasn't too happy with them first time around and I'll probably make a start on the wolves,
That's it then for another week, thanks for taking the time to visit and as always your comments are both welcomed and truly appreciated.
