Yes, I am kinda back in factory mode, which I find kills my energy, but I have decided to do this to kick off the figures. Simple stuff like rebasing, priming, dark wash, doing metals and doing base colours. It is nice to feel progress though.
Shading and details can come after, and that is the part I enjoy. It strikes me that if my newborn son keeps me up, having a menu of base coloured models I can quickly tinker with a bit for twenty minute bursts may be a good thing.
