First thought - when you post that you are going to go off and prime things, you should probably check first to see if you actually have any primer. I did, but not much, so I did not prime nearly as much as I wanted to. (I actually have several cans of black, but I wanted to prime stuff in white tonight.) So, I primed a few figs (ten or fifteen - mostly Warmahordes, but I primed six Malifaux figs, and I might start them tomorrow), and decided to do a little painting.
I need to take a pic - right now, it's drying in a spot where taking pics is simply not practical, but I finished a Swamp Horror. That means that I have at least 5 points for the month (for the challenge), and I can simply add it to the list of things that I painted in July, but never posted to the finished thread, thus gaining back my GOOPFC (or whatever the Get Out of Painting card is called).
I spent some time this evening reading through the MERC book. It looks interesting - I'm not entirely sold on the card movement mechanic, but it might work. I'll have to finish reading through it, and try a game, though probably not until GenCon.
