Lead Mountain: Update 5

A very productive week. I got two sets of operators painted and finished but more importantly all but one of my figures is properly based up on sand and painted tan. This means that I can put the PVA glue and sand away for a while and focus on the painting.

As for what got finished, we have passed the 100 models done mark. I’m not 100% happy with them so I might go back at some point to make a few minor tweaks. My attempt at UCP on the Empress figures looks okay but a little bit too light.
