Funfair progress - first paint

I have had a real good go at trying to get some paint on things. I am conscious of time and I want to make sure that there will be some funfair themed atmosphere and lets face it, that needs some bright colour.


I have made the Hot Air Balloon the centre piece and gone for the image of the Mr J's head. Well it stands out at least ;-) Other than that I have thrown on the colour and even cut out some paper advertising posters and stuck them on to large open areas using PVA.

It really is coming along.

I need more urban furniture to scatter on the ground and maybe a ticket kiosk or fast food outlet or a few seats to support the boxes and containers that I have coming.

The carousel remains unfinished. I have yet to find the right size horses for it. Maybe this weekend I will have success.

The board will also need some paint to reflect the night-time conditions. I have run out of spray so again another shopping trip required.

All in all I am happy with progress. It won't be long now until it is used in anger. Bring on the Batman! Mr J is ready and waiting.

    1. He, he - well it needs to because we are gaming a week on Sunday. I got off to a great start but then assembling and painting the models and the counters slowed me down. Pressure is on now though.

    1. It has been fun to paint. Never done anything like it before. Lots of early errors in terms of scale that had to be over painted. Still have a bit more of that to do but am enjoying it no end.

  3. Really fantastic work pal. I see some really thematic games coming up for you.
    Now you need to go watch some old Adam West batman for more inspiration - the one that comes to mind for me is the giant slushy machines they trap batman and robin in.
