A bug, painted with traditional vitreous paint on spectrum ice, tack fused to fuser's reserve, brought up to 1375 for ten minutes, all in one firing. All respects to Albrecht Durer.

Well? Table ready at best and it is 1am. This is a tough model to glue together in a hurry, for sure. But I think it will fly for tomorrow's games, good luck to the poor saps who deploy from this unsteady craft.

Hobby Challenge: drying the black wash. Less than 20 hours to go. And I have to work for 7 of those, and fit sleep in there somewhere...

Hobby progress: I base coated last night. Working again tonight!

Hobby Challenge Update: slowed by magnetizing issues; polarity is a thing to pay attention to, and Founders Centennial IPA makes polarity confusing at times. Ready to prime tonight.

Hobby Challenge progress: I've got everything de flashed and most of the fiddly stuff glued. I'll prime soon, so the harnesses will have the bicolor Errant look to them. Purists.

Also purchased some new water slide paper and some solvent so they'll wrap around the shoulder pads.

But this afternoon, I'm going fishing.

Hobby Challenge: in one week, I hope to assemble, prime, and table-top-ready paint this drop pod in anticipation of a game or two and the new Space Marine codex.

Wish me luck'
