Summer Slow Down

Not  much news so far...
I've stripped the old flock off my Meganobz and Warbosses bases, and have glued new basing material on. This means the regular Warbosses are ready for their paint update, they don't strictly need any additional converting. (Not that that's ever stopped me before!)
The Meganobz/Megaboss are a different story...
Prior to rebasing, the Meganobz all got 1mm plasticard shims under their feet, so that when (if?) the new plastic Meganobz arrive the old metal ones won't seem too small by comparison.
I also want to give them 2 shoulders pads, some of them already had a single one. Part because I never really liked the bare, poorly protected shoulders, but also to bulk them out a bit more (again, because of the larger plastic Meganobz).
They will also get proppa bosspoles, all of them. Scratchbuilt ones.

The biker Nobs are still on the modelling table as well, but having all six of them there at the same time seems to be somewhat overwhelming, as I've barely worked on them. Maybe if I just leave one of them there to concentrate on and put the rest away I might get more done on them?

Turning over to my painting table, maybe my efforts there will cheer me up:
The Stompa is still standing proud in his bare primer coat, and it's Grot Riggers are still only semi-painted. Wooo, progress! ....Ahem.

Actually I've been spending my hobby time on other things than building and painting, as both my Codex Orks and Red Waaagh! arrived over the last two weeks, and I'm busy reading and digesting those.
Much more pleasant sitting in the garden with a cool drink and a book than sitting in my hot hobby den bent over tiny parts slipping through sweaty fingers...
In fact, I've been selecting being outside over hobbying quite regularly lately. The "curse" of summer, I guess.
