I've had a nice relaxed couple of weekends of painting, finishing some things that have been hanging around my painting table for weeks to years.
For the 6mm Cold War, I finished a battalion of 6mm CinC T54s, and 10x Centurion IIIs, For 15mm WWII, I finally painted 4x 15mm Sdkfz 250 that I've had since the early 1990s, plus repaired a couple of old (Quality Castings) 15mm cannons. I even made a little headway on some infantry status markers for my 20mm Vietnam gaming. Just a hodge-podge of undirected progress. (Sorry no pics of these, I put them away without taking pics, and they just have basic paint and mud/dust).
I've been struggling with painting larger figs (28mm) for some reason over the last several months, making very little headway with my post-apoc figs. Along with two factions of PA figs setting on the paint table were ZombieSmith's grey aliens. I love these little guys, and planned to use them in my near future "Route 66" games, a project that has been almost completely neglected for the last eight years; though, they could show up in my post apocalypse world.
As I finished up the German half-tracks, and was thinking what next, I heard the little grey voices calling to me, "Paint us, so that we may come in peace". And so it was, I gently brushed away off the five years of dust that had accumulated since arriving in 2016, and began painting.
I gave them a slightly green grey skin, and bright green and purple uniforms. Though they probably won't hit the tabletop for a some time yet, it felt good finally getting paint on the little critters. I'm now caught between painting some of those post-apoc figs, or making a conveyance for the greys.
Here are a few pics of the greys:
