The good news is, I got better! Well... I'm not really 100% better yet, but I'm MUCH, MUCH BETTER than I was, thank goodness. In my experience the only good that comes from being seriously ill or seriously injured, if you are able to recover, is it reminds you not to take incredibly valuable things like your otherwise good health for granted, the way many of us -- and certainly I myself -- generally do. So right now I am very grateful to be just a little bit sick and on the road, hopefully, to a complete recovery.
One thing my improvement has made possible is me finishing up the painting of the Kabul River itself on my Kabul River terrain-board. This step was postponed when I got sick. Prior to that I had glued down ballast and pebbles over the ground-cover on both sides of the river, had added a coat of "Scenic Cement" (watered-down White Glue/PVA), painted the ground-cover, painted the rocks, and also painted over the river itself in light gray in order to very clearly mark off the area to be colored in as "water".
Next up will be doing some color tests with the Enviro Tex Lite 2-part clear resin, adding tints from a few different Acrylic Inks I bought a while ago for that purpose. I had hoped to make some progress on that front over the Christmas/New Year Holiday, but my illness has probably made that impossible. Still, I'm happy I was able to finish painting the river before the Holiday Break has ended.
Here's my usual ton-and-a-half of WIP pics showing the completion -- up to the pouring of the resin -- of the Kabul River board...
