Painting makes me sore

It has been a long, long time since I have had to paint anything other than one or two figures and so the process of painting all of the additional Urak Hai figures I need is reminding me just how painful it is to paint with arthritis. I tend to stiffen my joints to keep my hands steady (I’m sure almost everyone does) but with the added pressure in my joints it means that by the end of the day I am popping Tylenol and Advil for the pain.

Funny how you forget things like that.

I’ve started painting the 16 Orc bowmen and six Warg Riders and I hope to assemble and prime the Isendgard troll tonight and then get painting it this weekend.

My Orcs are going to look like hell but at least they will be painted :-)
