Quick update

I didn't get much painting done yesterday, mainly as a result of getting engrossed in reading Battlegames and Miniature Wargames. All I got done was the eyes on the horses, which isn't worth taking pics of at this point.

Once I have got my Sunday chores done, I'll have to crack on and do some more painting. At least I won't have the distraction of glossy mags to tempt me away from doing some work!

  1. Curse you, glossy magazines! Wargames mags: distracting gamers from finishing their armies and persuading us to start new ones since nineteen-canteen.

    1. Not to mention, putting us completely off ever painting a mini again when we see some of the paint-jobs in the mags. Mind you, the pics posted by one contributor to MW do provide a good antidote to that effect ;)

  3. Get that brush out and finish the horses!!! I know what you mean about both mags, WI makes you want to hang up the brush for good, while with MW, you tend to feel very superior!!! I'm sure my 4 year old daughter could do a better job than some of the figures they print in that mag!!

  4. The eyes of 15mm horses? You are really mythical. I HATE WI, hate; wonderful minis and very interesting periods...

    Best regards.

    2. Juan - Welcome to my followers list! The "eyes" are just small blobs of raw umber, nothing too intricate :)

  5. Thank you a lot, and welcome, also, to my own list. For me, painting 15mm models is intricate. I think they are more difficult that 28mm ones.

    Best regards.
