|Paint station still life|
This week saw my routine monthly journey to Seattle for a week in the home office. Rather than may usual, fair-weather companion of the bicycle tagging along for the 600 mile round trip, I added a twist to occupying my time spent after work. At the last minute, I decided to include a mobile painting station into the car for the week away.

The figures brought along were enough to build two units. One figure group consisted of 17 figures to complete a 28mm Baden infantry battalion for the 28mm Penninsular War project; the other a five figure unit of mounted Gendarmes for the Great Italian Wars project.

Midway through the week, the Badeners by Murawski Miniatures are about half finished. The Foundry Gendarmes only have a base coat of horse flesh laid down. By Friday how much further will each of these progress? Even if I make no more progress while away, I will arrive home with a solid start on two units.
