Today is a little bit works in progress, a little bit random/behind the scenes. This is what happens when projects get a little carried away and look to take longer than intended.

The hobby project that's turning into a big hobby project has been a trio of MDF houses. There's aASICS - Gelgamepoint 4907 - E409L4907Nine West Womens SALINDA Pumps 4-house set for Walking Dead Wolverine Marauder Pull-On Waterproof Steel-Toe Wellington Work Boot MensTuxedo shoes Patent Leather Wedding shoes for Men Cap Toe Lace up Formal Business Oxford shoesof which I picked up 3 during a sale at some point or another. As my theater project got delayed (more on that some other time) I thought I'd just whip out these 3 houses. My method of whipping takes a while.

I've long been hesitant to paint MDF as stories of it drinking up paint are legendary. I've not really experienced it myself, but I've really been limited what I paint. The kits as they come are fairly plain. I went my favored route for home and instead of trying to paint interior walls, Lauren Ralph Lauren Women's Gail BootCole Haan Warren Men's Plain Toe Oxford Dress shoes blueeI went by Home Depot and picked up paint sample cards for Behr paint. These specific cards are really good for what I need. They're sized to cover most walls. There's a variety of colors. Nobody in Home Depot seems to notice or mind when I grab 4 samples of 10 colors and merrily walk out without buying anything.

I've learned the method that works best for me is to glue the card to the wall and then cut and trim the excess. Before this, I dry-fit everything together (this will come in important on that theater project story for some other time) to make sure I get rooms with the same color.El Naturalista Unisex Adults' N5281 Vaquetilla Caramel El Viajero Slip On TrainersGeox Womens Wnimat5 Ankle Bootie Men's Casual shoes Leather Low-top shoes Hand-Woven Single shoes Cover Foot Leather shoesKamik Women's Citadel Insulated Winter BootOnce the glue dries, excess is trimmed so the walls will fit flush, or as flush as I can make them, with each other and the floor. I tend to get a little overboard with the color choices. My house has tan (Gourmet Mushroom) walls throughout, but here I pick a different color for every room. It's colorful, if nothing else.

Interior window openings have been tricky in the past, with lots of mistakes learned. Just a square opening, thank you square hole punch, doesn't look right. Windows have trim. I tried a couple of craft-stick, fine - square toothpick - frames with 45 ° corners, Geox Womens D Illusion A. SneakersBoaonda Non Slip shoes for Women - Professional Waterproof shoes - Noahbut my Steve Madden Womens Nevadaaa Slouch Boot wasn't making consistent, flush cuts. Being lazy, I opted for and old fashioned square frame with longer top and bottom, and the sides are trimmed to fit between. With transparency film cut to fit the window and glued in before the paint card, it all makes for a decent window.

With the walls dry-fit into the base, I went ahead and glued all the walls together with some wood glue and let it all set for a day. Now it's ready for the next step. Ah, the next step. What is the next step? Notice the lack of doors? Teva Mens M Roller Leather SlipperED Ellen DeGeneres Womens TraisonNike Men's Air Force 1 '07 LV8 UV shoes Volt WhiteNine Seven Genuine Stretch Leather Womens Pointed Toe Stiletto Heel Handmade Thigh High Long BootPart of not gluing walls to the base is so the doors can still be added - and this time I took extra care to make sure the holes for the door hing/axis are on the correct sides. I learn from my mistakes! Sometimes. The outer doors have openings for windows, KEEN Womens Terra Moc Wp ClogK-Swiss Big Shot Light Men's Tennis shoesso I'll likely go the transparency film + toothpick frame route for those. The interior doors are very plain. I'm currently planning on printing out some door textures and gluing them on. Door textures may not be the proper term. There's some nice pics of interior doors on the Home Depot website that I'll likely be cropping and printing. I use Home Depot a lot for this stuff. Maybe I can get a sponsorship?

There's some other little details I'm going to print out and see how they look, but I'll save further explanation until we see if it's worth it. The one part I will mention is how the floors of these 3 houses work horribly for house floors. While I'm tempted to just print out floors, Nine West Womens Akeelah Leather Pointed Toe FlatNike Womens air Huarache Run PRM Trainers 683818 Sneakers shoeswhich is Plan B, I'm going to see how 1mm felt works as a carpet replacement. That's crazy, you say. Home Depot doesn't have 1mm felt! That's true. Hobby Lobby has felt!

Seeing as it took the better part of 2 weeks to get walls covered in color and glued, I'm not really sure how long to expect this next phase to take.

Segueing from Home Depot, it's clearance time of year. While I always drop in for coupon usage on Mona flying Womens Leather Penny Loafer Casual Flat shoes for Women Ladies Girls Dark Red-Black I'll also wander the aisles looking for anything with a red sticker that I might one day use. This year that included some Brier Patch flock and a couple of water effects.Baffin Tundra Boot Sz 8KYOETSU Women's Pearl-Like Enamel Zori Formal Sandals for Japanese Kimono and Yukata ASICS Men's Gel-Fortify Running shoesI've yet to do much with water effects but if I keep Salomon Outline Mid GTX W Womens Hiking Boot I'm going to try something or other before long. I picked up some random odds and ends while roaming the aisles, too. I was starting to run out of the Sand & Mud pigment that I use, so instead of using my coupon on primer I picked up pigment. I also picked up a couple of random packs of wood pieces, because sometimes I just need random wood pieces.

After watching Reebok Women’s Club C 85 Popped Perf Low-Top Sneakers, Pink, 8.5 UK I decided to pick some up. Most people talk about how these paints work well for painting lots of minis quickly, although the colors tend to come out flat and in pastels. The thing I noticed is that these paints seem to work well with skin tones and fabric.Gabor Women Ankle Boots black, (black) 95.700.27FRANCESCO MILANO Women's S141GBLACK Black Leather Sandals ROMIKA Varese N13 Ladies Womens Lace up Ankle Boot Snake Print Small Wedge BlackI paint a lot of skin tones and fabric! Contrast paints are described as a thick wash. I like to paint with a wash!

I made a list of the colors I would be most likely to use and headed out to The Deep to get what I could. They had 7 colors in stock. 5 of them were colors I wanted, so I picked them up. From there I went to the Warhammer Store, and discovered they were closed on Tuesdays. Luckily, Adam at work mentioned a Warhammer sale of some type at JCs House of Cards. I thought they were mainly a Magic The Gathering & card games of that ilk shop. Facebook listed Warhammer in their stock, so I took advantage of social media and asked if they carried/had in stock any contrast paint. They replied "yes, we have them all". That afternoon, I saw they did indeed have them all. And then I may have left with too many. But they had them all!

I'm going to practice with these on some Zombicide minis that will never see the light of day, just to get a feel for how they work.

With all the Walking Dead minis I've gotten over the past couple of years, I've been racking up Mantic Points/Proof of Purchase. The Mantic web store had some more things in stock, so I finally got my points together and placed an order. I needed 40 pts, which I managed to get together - I had to raid a couple of not-yet-opened boosters. I'm not sure I've ever mailed anything to England, but I visited my local USPS to ensure I had everything packed, addressed, and properly paid. Sometime in the next 3 weeks they should receive my points. Hopefully in the ensuing 3 weeks I'll get my point paid booty.
