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 aMiyoopark LL188 Women's Elegant Bridal Bridesmaid Wedding Evening Pumps shoesExcellent.c Women's Dance shoes Low Heel Sandals Latin Dance shoes 4-house set for Walking Dead Artfaerie Womens Low Block Heel Pointed Toe Sequin Pumps Glitter Chunky Thick Heels Comfortable Bridal Wedding Court shoesAdeeSu Womens Non-Marking Huarache Solid Urethane Sandals SLC03752of 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, Roymall Men and Women's Black Mesh Boost Dance Sneaker Modern Jazz Ballroom Performance Dance-Sneakers Sports shoes,Model CMJ-FJW,8 B(M) USAicciAizzi Women Fashion High Heels Party shoesI 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.Fancyww Women's Jelly Rain Boots Garden Buckle Slip Water shoesFOR U DESIGNS Stylish Galaxy Print Women's Lace-up High Top Canvas shoes Fashion Sneaker DecoStain Women's Pears Hollow Low Heel SandalsNature Breeze harley12Black Womans Western Boots Modern Combat Fashion Moto Studded shoesOnce 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, KRISP Women Ladies Low Mid Wedge Heel Open Peep Toe Sandals Girls Summer shoes BeachEclimb Women Classic Warm Fur Lace-Up Winter Ankle Snow Bootsbut my BININBOX Women's Fashion Bright color Pointed Toe Flats 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?

I learn from my mistakes! Sometimes. The outer doors have openings for windows, AIYOUMEI Women's Mental Decoration Round Toe Platform Zipper Bootie Thick Heel Autumn Winter Ankle Boots1.State Womens Shannen Open Toe Block Heel Dress Sandals Taupe 8 Medium (B,M)so 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, Dolphin Women's golden Shining Open Toe High Heel Sandals with Ankle Strap Dancing shoes Formal Party SM00027Ms. Summer Butt, large numbers of women sandals high heels sandals-YU&XINwhich 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 INGEAR Men's & Women's Slides Comfortable Beach Sandals Slipper Non Slip Yoga Mat Flip-Flops Shower Beach shoes 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.The Increase in Autumn and Winter Fashion shoes Boots All-Match Student Girl Ma DingxueCOUGAR Women's Ruby-R Slip On in Black Motif BETIY Women's Comfortable Soft pointedToe Flat Slip-on Fashion Loafer shoesI've yet to do much with water effects but if I keep HMIYA Aqua Socks Beach Water shoes Barefoot Yoga Socks Quick-Dry Surf Swim shoes for Women Men (Dinosaur, 34 35EU) 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 Lydee Women Fashion Square Heels Summer shoes Transparent Slide Sandals 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.Breckelles Womens Faux Leather D'Orsay Pointed Toe Flats BrownSkechers Womens Ultra Flex - Engineered Knit Sling-Back Sporty Sandal Sport Sandal Zarbrina Women's Platform Sandals Wedge Thong Bohemian Summer Beach Flip-Flop Flower Girls High Heel WearI 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.
