While last week was a good dose of family gaming, this week the kids went to bed earlier and I visited the basement to get some painting done!
Not much to account for, as I'm still in the midst of the tedious process of drybrushing a million palm leaves and still figuring out the detail on the Martian Spider test subjects.
While this figure made his first appearance as a base coat figure in last week's A Simple Trade, Captain Skippy McBoatswain is making a second appearance in the game, so it was fitting to finish him up.

Before my mother in law's health took center stage and eliminated any recent chance at playing in my buddy Hoyce's 2nd Edition AD&D game, I planned on painting up my character. I now have a half dozen old Grenadier figs up in the queue and two got finished.

Fun fact: these are two out of three of the Dungeoneers pack, the very first pack of minis I bought way back in the early 90's from Hobby Hangout in Easton. Second fun fact: the third figure in the pack, a fighter, is the only one of the figures that previously had a drop of paint on it. He's cleaned up and base coated, but it's amazing the difference of painting detail on 25mm versus 28/30mm.
