Then, I began the laborious process of cutting the roof tiles. It is dull and time-consuming, but worth it in the end.
Now back to roofing.
As always, thanks for reading.

The pigs came from Pegasus Hobbies in their farmtastic animals range. I threw in some HO scale pigs that I had lying around. (Don't we all?) The HO pigs make good weanlings.
I based the drove of pigs on coins and then applied my latest secret weapon: Gel Stone. I don't know if it is sold outside of Korea, but it makes basing a cinch.
Not bad for a day's painting. As always, thanks for reading.

|I started basecoating some Caesar zombies...|
|Drybrushed some undead wolves....|
|Gave some Elheim hillbillies a wash....|
|Primed and drybrushed some Elheim soldiers....|
|and built a Minart workshop.|
|The interior is pants and has to be based.|
While flea jumping back and fourth from painting and building, disaster struck. I wiped my best Windsor Newton 00 brush on a tissue that had some glue on it. So I now have an expensive drybrush. It was my best brush and had lasted for over 3 years. It made my eyes rain.
|I'm Simple Jack. I wiped an expensive paintbrush on some glue.|
So I decided to go to my trusted art supply store to pick up a new Windsor Newton Series 7 00 brush but they were no longer in stock. They had 0's and up but no 00. Korea can be strange that way. One day you have pretzels and snapple.....then (poof!) gone like they were never here.
They did have some Korean kolinsky sable brushes that were really small and dirt cheap. The name of the brush company is Hwahong. Each brush was about 2 dollars U.S. I was able to buy 5 brushes for the price of 1 Windsor Newton.
|A Windsor Newton 0 is on the top...the rest are Huahong.|
The points are really small. One is so small that I think that I might be able to paint eyes. It will be useful for tiny details but that's about it. Only time will tell if these brushes can compete with Windsor Newton for durability. Until then, thanks for reading.

Though I am no historian, I have a feeling that with all the smoke, mud, and livestock, things dirty was the rule.
A house needs occupants and that will be the subject of a later post. As always, thanks for reading.
