Well, actually, I have been fairly idle all told, but I have managed to make some progress over the past week, despite the heat. It definitely feels like the weather for terraining rather than fiddly painting.
Having a slightly milder Saturday, with all of my errands out of the way early, what better thing to do than paint a load of movement trays? And voila, Warbases' finest:
So you can see how they look filled, some stealthy Beja marksmen, my favourite Mahdist unit so far.
And the steadfast King's Royal Rifle Corps.
Much better. I did spend a little extra time sanding down the sharp edges on each of them before texturing the tops, which I think removes some of the harshness.
While I've god a good stack done in one session, I will need a load of custom-cut tray for my Mahdists and a few more cavalry trays to fit the growing collection. Looks like I'll have to find another spare Saturday in a few months!
