20mm Centaurs WIP

My centaurs are almost done! Slapped on some base painting and some wash/shading yesterday. More detailing and retouching needed, hopefully all done by tonight.

The sculpts range from mediocre to bad though, with very little attention given to musculature and facial detail. Heck, the spear centaur loks like a helmeted gorilla! The figs came in big boxes full of other stuff meant for the game.

My workbench has been tidied up and the equipment properly categorized and stashed. Yes, I organize my paint bottles by brand and by letter. As well as the brushes. Yes, I find that strangely comforting. So, in an effort to refocus my attention to the hobby and hopefully get more things done, I'm writing down a list of wargame and scale modelling projects I'm hoping to finish by April. No grand, sweeping plans here. Just small, short-term goals. I usually fall into the trap of starting out with really over-the-top plans and then run out of steam midway. The inevitable resul
