I'm getting close to the end of the Iron Dwarves project, and it is beginning to feel like a grind. What makes it difficult is nearly finishing each unit, but then having to move onto the next. I have to do this so basing and weathering are consistent at the end of the project. That produces a nicer effect, but it also delays the enjoyment of seeing finished models. I can't wait to see these guys based.

Back from vacation, and it was time to knock out the last squad of spearmen and two banner bearers. I'm finally beginning to see the light of day on this project. It is much more satisfying when you can see a model based and gore/mud splatted at the end of painting, but for this project I am having to wait. I really want to move onto basing and environmental effects. The flags just look incomplete to me until they are splattered with mud and blood.
