In the interests of trying to maintain (get back to) posting once a week as a minimum, I present the current state of the Koptas. Slight touch ups to the metals and final go over the verdigris with a whiter wash on certain spots, as well as the plain white areas blocked in and shaded (namely the odd rocket head, the sculpted dags on the chappie on the right, the front lower jaw base plate on the middle one and the ends of the rotors on the left one.

Tonight after I click publish on this post I'll be sitting down to block in the damaged red paint job. I'm on baby duty now the missus has returned to work part time and I'm currently waiting for her to drop off to sleep while being treated to a gibberish rendition of 'Let it Go' from Frozen. I don't like painting while she hasn't settled as I end up wasting paint while I go back and forth trying to get her to sleep. That's not such a problem while you're typing up a blog post.
This time out we instead of replaying Flash Point (a cool little firefighter game) or Last Night on Earth (a cool Walking Deadesque [though its older by far than the TV show] zombie horror game) we played a round of Monsters Menace America (where I got absolutely drubbed as not-King Kong) and then a round of Killer Bunnies the card game (which I surprisingly won after nearly going homicidal in the early game after Ray killed one too many of my Bunnies). Both games were a right laugh, helped along by the good company, plentiful snacks and cider.
