Last chance to enter my prize draw!
I'm still grotty with my cold, but not as bad as I was over the weekend so I should be back at work tomorrow. However, I had something to cheer me up this morning - Anne has posted pics of mini-me on her blog, and a wonderful job she has done too. I really love the back-story she's written for my avatar for her story arcs and the figure looks absolutely "me".
It also meant that I was able to throw open the windows to provide ventilation for doing the matt spraying of the finished Saxons (and to clear out some of the fug from my flat). Once the figures were sprayed, I was able to get on with flocking the bases, take some pics and send them off to Curt - hopefully they'll be up on his blog this evening.
Late 30YW "Horse"
I've done the base colours on the horses and the manes, tails, cannons and muzzles (as applicable) on the bays. greys (OK, blue roans), the creams and some of the chestnuts. Later on I'll do the washes and possibly the riders' trousers.
I've ordered some extra figures to make up 3 regiments of these - I needed 2 more troopers, 1 more standard bearer and 3 officer-type figures. I also ordered some Finnish "Hakka Pelli", some more harquebusiers/reiters and some regimental guns. I should be picking them up this weekend at the tournament - Damian from Donnington Miniatures is taking part and I could even end up playing against him at some point.
