It was my birthday yesterday, but I've decided I'm not middle-aged for another 5 years or so.
CliffNotes: It's short. Read it or not, your option.
As an aside, the Master Manipulator (every store needs one) also celebrated his birthday this weekend, though I believe his birthday is today, the 26th. I never realized he was a Leo: that explains a lot. He's got one of those great wives who make more money than their husbands but love them enough to buy them expensive stuff. Check out his present here, and support his blog if you have a mind to. My hope is he's not a flash in the pan, so encourage his ADD already.
How does this relate to BoLSCon - er, sorry: WarGAmes Con? Because I've got a pretty great family too. My wife purchased my ticket and hotel room for this weekend's event months ago and yesterday mom gave me a new Gucci wallet stuffed with beer money for the trip. (Her hope is I'll finish my graduate degree and decide to actually make money again. I've been in my post-adolescent shorts and sandals phase since my ex-partner cleaned out my bank account and made an irony out of a decade of hard work and savings.)
Okay, the picture... what's everyone's thoughts on basing? I used to keep the edge of the base black but transitioned to a 'painting it brown' period a few years ago. Based on Lauby's advice, I went back to black for the Not-So-Super-Secret Army, which you'll see tomorrow. I think the black edging makes the sand and flocking pop.
The MM(esno) has a process he shared with me this weekend, but I'll let him share it on his blog. What does everyone out there prefer?

The title says it all; this is the first commission work I've taken on that involved painting a complete army. It's fair to say it ...
