A week of mixed success, but progress has been made nonetheless.
Time taken to paint up the bases helped enormously. I have a stash of Sector Imperialis bases, and while larger scale figures like Marines sit much better on 32mm, these smaller 25mm are perfect for the human-scale figures like Cultists and Skitarii.
There's something very pleasing about seeing all the bases lined up when they're completed. Although since taking this shot, I added a little stippling to the grey for more interest.
The Cultists are coming together, and now they're on the bases with heads, it feels a little more real.
Lot of detail still to do, but these really are lovely sculpts to play with.
