Friday night status: A Drambuie, a piece of 85% dark chocolate, and finally starting to paint of the warbands that came in the Warhammer Underworlds: Nethermaze box.

After Featherdale, we went into the city for dinner at a Chinese restaurant called "Lotus". It was definitely tasty, but WAY overpriced, next time we'd just as soon go to Chatswood and get the same food for about a third to half the price. After that we did a brief wander around Barangaroo, and while this photo isn't the world's best quality (it wasn't even night mode, just the ultra-wide angle lens on my iPhone so it struggled a bit with the low light), I REALLY love the feel of it. Gives me very Bladerunner-esque vibes.

I went into the city today for an in-person farewell lunch for our intern, but it turns out she came down sick and couldn't make it. 😞 Completely miserable day too, cold and dreary and rainy. On the bright, the views are still decent and we got Schnitz for lunch!

It took far too long, but the first four Scions of my converted all-women Kill Team squad are done! Absolutely stoked with how well they came out, in particular the faces as well as the goggles on the one second from the left. There was absolutely no drybrushing on these at all, but given how much time drybrushing saves and the fact that I've got another nine of these to paint, I'm definitely going back to drybrushing for the larger areas because I want to actually get the rest of these finished some time in the next five years. 😛

I'm in the office today to play some Kill Team after work, and am up on Level 30 this time. Love the view from up here!

Phew, that was a productive morning! Remulched the front garden and rearranged the plants, and laid weed mat under the trees to the right as well as adding mulch there too. And did the mowing too.

Made a few more modifications to my painting table this morning! I attached an extra piece of wood to the front of the top of the arch and moved the LED strips that had been pointing directly out at me—or were at the very back and not really contributing much—to underneath the new piece so they're pointing straight down towards what I'm painting. The entire arch was also moved forwards so I get more of the light, and it's now significantly more rigid as well. I hadn't taken any photos of it previously, but after I'd added the second level to store paints on at the end of last year, I also put a set of strip lights underneath that too to light up the bottom level a little more.

Finished the last three members of my Death Guard squad for Kill Team! I'm really happy with how these came out, I tried some new techniques (much less dry brushing and more building up in thin layers, particularly in the daemon faces in the armour), and I used my airbrush to varnish them rather than having to wait for the weather to cooperate to use the spray can.

Friday night status: a rum Old Fashioned, some dark chocolate, and painting. 👌🏻

The decal-softening stuff arrived yesterday, and today it was low enough humidity and temperature that I could varnish them, so now my Space Wolves are all done! 🎉
