A month! How the heck has it been a month already? There's been some painting, but sadly not a lot of stuff that can be photographed and posted. (Or at least, not that I want to...) I've been doing assembly of models for a hoped-for burst of painting, and prepping for my first Infinity tournament by getting a last few models I want painted ready for it.
That said, I finally managed to paint the crates in a way I wasn't unhappy with the instant I saw them. It takes glosscoat (by me applied by cheap GW 'purity seal') to make sure the paint doesn't soak into the wood. I may end up changing exactly how I work the words/logos into the basswood, but for now I think it works.
