I did get some painting done tonight on a Tau Crisis Battlesuit, but none of it is really picture worthy. I painted some grey and metal, that is about it.

On a plus note, I did have a D&D session that went quite well despite not having a whole lot planned for them.

I come bearing pics!

I know the paint on the Stealth Suit is a bit thick, that should be fixed upon further coats.

This is what I've been working on the past 2 days.

The aforementioned Stealth Suit, I'm not sure what colour to have the actual suits, I was thinking of a dark red or brown, but all of those colours for me are pretty much out.

Just a closer look at the Battlesuit

Not too many pictures this time around, but progress is slow right now. With schoolwork, a big music festival on Wednesday, preparing for university auditions and going to Europe this Friday, I am quite busy and I'm finding little time to paint.

Unfortunately, Tuesday will be the last day I will paint until sometime after March Break.

I am going to be touring Europe for 10 days and will be no where near my minis or paints until Sunday, which my expected time of arrival will be 10pm. Monday is a severe maybe for painting.

I won't be able to because it's a school run trip. Anyway, I would prefer to hang out with the people I'm going with instead of painting and isolating myself.

I'll try to make up for it after, my schedule will clear up after April 7th because both of my auditions for university will be done.

I had a great time, I might be able to get to painting tomorrow, I'm too tired to paint tonight, I might even be able to get some new paints to replace the ones that are almost empty.

No, unfortunately. It's also been a while since I last painted, I'm hoping to do it while watching the Junos tonight. Maybe I'll get some stuff done on my Orks or Tau.

On a seperate note, I might be doing a commission for a friend, painting 5 Sanguinary Guard as either Vanguard Vets or for a BA army. Should I charge him money for this and if so, how much?
