What do you do on holiday - FW Avatar WIP


At the moment I'm on holiday in Wales with the family, having a great time because it's not raining... And at nights I'm having a beer or two and a couple of hours of painting, this got me thinking, is it just me that insists on taking my paints away on holiday with me?  My wife has gotten used to it after 9 years of going away and with me taking things out of the car to make room in the car for all the stuff I'm going to paint, but she still gives me THAT look, you know the one I mean.  If you do take things away with you what do you take?

I normally take 20 - 30 troops in a carry case with my paints, but this time I have taken a Forge World Avatar I'm painting for my friend Scott's 40th birthday present which I gave him last month, the problem is I haven't got any tools or equipment for any problems that arise and yes it's good to dedicate a week to paint one model, but I'm missing the production line of troop painting and the feeling of when you get back from holiday and all your troops are finished.  The problem I have is I forgot to undercoat his loin cloth hair and base which is really annoying me because I have 4 days and only touching up to do.  Oh well I'll have to spend more time with my wife, not sure how she will feel about that with 2 book to read and wine and beer to drink :)
