What’s that you say? Late? Uh…
So anyway, the issue was that when I took the group photos a couple of weeks ago, I started getting them ready, so I could assemble the post – and noticed that a couple of the June-It models had managed to sneak their way into the new photos, even though they were painted in May. Bastards! Natually, this meant that I needed to retake all of the photos, except everything was put away, and of course, time.
I did intend to get them all out this morning and retake those photos, but now we’ve got an additional previously-unscheduled session of Imperial Assault starting within an hour, as time has once again gotten away from us – everything takes longer than planned. Still, there are a lot of posts I want to get through this month. I’ve got a few more Jewel-models with their varnish drying, and a couple of others that need the photos to be done still – so time to get back to this and get it done, and then more new models tomorrow and afterwards (for a few days, at least!)
So it’s Photoshop-deletion for those photos. Originally taken on the 10th which is late enough from the beginning of the new month when I like to take them (ideally by the first weekend of the month). The close-up of the middle group was an unfocused, blurry mess. I really need to sort out a camera that can take decent group shots. Maybe my new phone or tablet can do the trick? We’ll see shortly…
The numbers game is as follows: in June I finished 71 models plus 40 hedges, for a total of 111 completed pieces.
Now, let’s see how good I am at the Mathematicaliticologies.
So that’s 343 completed models for the year to date, as of the end of June. Sure, a good chunk of 50-odd of those are scatter terrain at varying levels of simplicity – bombs, crates, barrels and of course that mass of hedges, the fact is they’re still things that went from naked plastic to fully painted and ready for the table.
