Lackluster Minis

04.13.2021

This is somewhat a lackluster of updates. Hobby list items got checked off as done, but that feels about like the extent of it.

10 more minis from no particular game got painted, but this batch seemed to lack detail. It could have been that I primed, and felt obligated to paint, 10 minis at once instead of the batch size of 5-6 that I usually do. Let that be a lesson to myself - even if I say I'm going to prime a bunch and then paint them in smaller batches.... I'm not. The 1 plus from this go around is that I think I finally got the formula for what to use as "concrete" on the bases will be:

It's still pretty dark for a concrete, but it's as close to what I want as I've been able to get.

The last of the single-width mall stores I had put together received their store signs and some interior shelves. The shelves are once of those things that's seen tweaks during each iteration. The latest is 0.06 mm styrene used as the shelves. The longer lengths work better than craft sticks/toothpicks. Measure + cut + cement glue, then prime and glue it to the printout of product. I don't have the patience for the shelves that came with the kits, and this gives some added scenery without taking up too much floor space needed by minis to scurry around.
