So my quest to paint / be productive for 7 consecutive days hit a snag, a long days at work + chores scuppered any desire to paint yesterday. Today I was going to try my new casting gear but a leaky man cave roof and cold weather dissuaded me, instead I headed inside to the warmth and painted the first stage of skin onto my guardsmen. No pics I'm afraid as the lighting was bad, all I've done is put several successive thin layers of Tallern Flesh the a couple of washes of Army Painter Mid/Sepia tone on. I suspect another wash or agrax will be needed but I'll see in the morning light! Tomorrow's goal is finish the armour base coating.
