Terrain and Return to Painting

I'm climbing out of the funk of the last few weeks. A lot of things contributed to me not really painting miniatures much. But now we're all getting over our various recent illnesses in the household, my back is (mostly) feeling better, new glasses arrived, and I got a couple nights of good sleep.

In the mean time, I've been wrapping up "wave two" of my terrain binge. Here's a pic of most of what I've done lately.



4" river sections, 2" river sections, bogs, shrubs, and muddy dirt road. Kind of oldschool & cartoony looking, but that's the way we roll in the lonely attic.

But the real big deal is... I sat at the desk and actually applied paint to a couple of half-finished figures that I had wanted to wrap up a couple weeks ago. (The Ultraforge giant and a vampire I need to send off in the mail.)  I also applied quite a bit of GW Nuln Oil wash to my desk. About half of a new bottle, when I accidentally tipped it over. I'm looking forward to finishing both ASAP. Both figures, that is. Not the desk.

  1. Good to hear that you are back in saddle! And I'm glad you are feeling better. The plague hit my house hold hard this month a well.

    1. Given that we have a young one in daycare, we've actually been pretty lucky -- we made it all winter without illness. :)

  2. Quite a nice bit of terrain, that!

    Seems like you need some swamp strangled forest too though.

    1. I've been thinking about that and trying to decide how I want to go about making trees. I have some kits that have been awaiting use for many years, but I've got some other ideas I might try.
