I've primed the "elven" archers and started on faces (the tricky bit) but didn't have any flesh-colored paint left. Turns out that my gray-brown butternut with a dab of white and a dab of yellow made for a serviceable skin tone. I'm a big fan of blacklining as it covers for a shaky hand and is a shortcut I prefer over mixing several different shades of the same color. The result is not nearly as beautiful as the careful gradation that some painters labor to produce, but is workable (and a heck of a lot faster).
I likely won't get another crack at painting until Sunday. Class starts July 14 and I'll have to remain fairly focused if I want to reach my goal of getting at least 36 minis ready by then.
