First up is a fourteen-figure stand of Aventine Miniatures' Roman Principes. Great figures. It has been a long time since any Aventine figures crossed over the painting desk.
Next up are three, four-figure stands of Renegade Miniatures slingers. Again, super figures that are a joy to paint. I likely had a sufficient number of these slinger units already painted and present for duty but a dozen remained in The Lead Pile so why not paint them? Yeah, that is what I thought too!
Finally, I have been out of town for a long weekend getaway to celebrate the latest grandchild's first birthday. Having been more than a year since our last journey away, it was a pleasure to experience a slice of a more typical lifestyle of weekend adventures. While the trip was only a 600-mile cross-state road trip, changing landscapes if only for a few days was a pleasure. Below is a view of the Seattle Space Needle at sunset as seen from the 41st floor of my daughter's condo. Nice view, huh?
