I managed to squeak out some painting over the holiday, mostly sneaking off a few minutes at a time.
About 80% done with the batch of "armored skeletons". I still need to do some highlighting, patch & paint the shields, glue them on, and flock the bases.
I also painted a couple of characters. Summoners, champions, whatever -- the guys who summon & control the huge units/legions. They'll fill the space of 4 regular rank & file.
At this rate, I'll have nothing left to paint for Deadcember.
