Lets finish the Figures

We are nearly at the end of January already so I thought that it is about time to leave the house alone and give me some hobby time. Way back in November 2012, I started to paint the Italeri French Carabiniers, yup that long ago. I finished painting the horses in October 2013 and started to paint the first batch of troopers in the following month. 

Well here we are in 2018 and the first batch are still not finished completely with the second batch half done. So I am back in the painting chair to finish these as soon as I can. The good news is that I am already thinking about the next regiment to paint which will defiantly be Infantry. 

Now where are the paint brushes?

First Post of the Year

I know it’s a bit late but I had some really lovely presents from my family at Christmas and I did manage to get a few wargaming items. First I received some terrain pieces from Jarvis which are the Muddy Ditch and the Shallow Stream.  Also some summer 2mm Grass Tufts from Serious Play. You can also see that I was given a war DVD “Hacksaw Ridge” which is a true story about a  an American called Desmond Doss in WW11 who is a conscientious objector and becomes an army medic. I am really looking forward to see this.

I would like to congratulate wargamers who have finished painting mountain of figures, vehicles, Ships, planes and terrain pieces over the last year and for those who have already finished painting units in the first few weeks of the New Year.
If you follow my blog then you will know that I do not make lists or plans of things to do each year as it seems that my painting mojo has vanished over the last few years. This could be down to not having any new figures being produced by the world’s plastic companies, but there are a few in various pipelines being made right now which look good but how long do we have to wait? Still is this my first post of the New Year and hope that more will appear soon.
