Lead Mountain: Update 3

Only a short update, no pictures this time. I’ve been busy sorting out my app for Skirmish Sangin over most of the weekend (before being absorbed by the great joy that is Rainbow Six Seige) so didn’t have much time to sit and paint.

On the painting front, the big shift was the arrival of some new bases. That, combined with a load of sand means I’ve moved a load of figures out of the bare metal group and into the process of being painted up. I’ve also got a few extra paints ready to try out UCP style. Sadly the paint I use for all my base painting didn’t arrive so I’ll be nipping to the Dice Saloon to pick some up on the weekend.

So how is the lead mountain currently standing? Items in italics have changed since the last update.
