So still didn't have a chance to paint today - too much work to do, and packing. Heading home for a couple of weeks tomorrow. All my lovely brushes and paints are boxed up. As is all my underwear... damn!
I have 6 orks basecoated though; 3 white and 3 black. I need to do an update post with the chaos marine army I won off ebay on. It's huge for the price I paid, but good god loads of the models are in a hideous stat. Badly glued - it looks like most of them just had superglue poured on! Random bits stuck on- gun stuck to the outside of hands, the torsos of one model stuck onto the tiny legs of god knows what. Some have been basecoated, some haven't. Some have been painted with a billion layers, some have just been sprayed gold like tiny chaos-oscars.
It's going to be a hell of a lot of work to sort out, but worth it in the end :)
We tried out a few different paint strippers this week. Tried engine degreaser - managed to create a new ork model 'Mr Melty', tried fairy power spray, works awesome on metal models, dettol antiseptic, works awesomeon plastics! Originally wrote spastics there, glad I caught that :o
Also James' dad decided to help by taking out a little khorne berserker and power spray hosing it around the garden. The dog was very confused. Little spaniel is curently half shaved and looks like he has mange. Will get pics tomorrow.
