Just as it was all going so well...

A few months without posting again, life takes over sometimes. My particular reason was the birth of daughters #2 and 3, so I've been seeing a lot of this view rather than my painting desk.

Still, there are snatches of time when one can get things done. As I had salute to look forward to (as a day off from babies if nothing else) I did some work on an old metal Tunnel dweller from heresy, more in a further post.

I did some more work on laserburn vehicles - this one was also entered into the painting competition, but didn't place either.

Whilst at salute I had a go at speed painting (20mins to do a figure) and won my heat. These are what I got, mine's at the front:

Finally here are a few things I purchased at salute:

I'm looking forward to using my new secret weapon washes and Darkstar TMM shades, not to mention getting my airbrush out for a spot of Angel Giraldez technique.

More soon



Lots of words
