I haven’t done well at updating my blog the past couple of weeks, but all is still well here under lockdown. I am still finding myself too distracted to paint as I would like to, but I have gotten the big brushes and craft paint out and had a go at some scenery. First up is another of the resin village buildings I’ve been working on, the “Trader’s Shack“ from Apocalypse Miniatures.

I am looking forward to getting the village into a game; at three buildings plus the outhouse, it’s starting to look like something. A fourth large building, the Apocalypse “farm house” is on the painting desk with some paint on it.
Last weekend I pulled out all of the 25mm scenery boxes, sorted, consolidated, and labeled, so I now have an empty 12 liter Really Useful Box earmarked (and labeled) for transporting scenery for away games, and all of the scenery pieces have a labeled box to call home, so that can be sorted back after use.

In the upper right corner of the organization picture, a tan ruined tower can be seen. I think I acquired this from a dealer at Huzzah a couple of years ago. The manufacturer had already gone out of business, so I couldn’t get one in the grays I usually use for scenery. Since I found it while organizing, I was reminded that I should try repainting it.

Happily, the recycled tire material seemed to take paint well, and I am pretty happy with the enhanced piece. Now that it looks like it fits in with the rest of the scenery, I hope to have it on the table soon.
Following the scenery sorting, I set up a game of Burrows and Badgers.
