Obviously not mine. My behind is very trim and athletic*.
No, this is to let you know that my impulses took control and acted on my thoughts of doing a pirate army. I've placed a bunch of small orders with Rebel Minis, Old Glory UK, Essex, Black Hat and East Riding Miniatures. I'll also be placing some orders with Peter Pig, Museum, Minifigs and Donnington. My plan is to get as much variety of pose and dress as possible in the army.
In my Rebel Minis order there were a few packs of sci-fi and pulp stuff as well - I was over the VAT-free limit, so thought I might as well make it worthwhile paying the £8 admin fee that Royal Mail will hit me for.
I've been making a little bit of progress on my Koreans. Last night I switched the cavalry to wider painting sticks to give a bit more stability (they kept toppling over on the thinner sticks). I also did the base colour on the bases of the levy troops.
This evening I've been working on the levy archers. I decided to split the batch in two - archers and heavy weapons - for the rest of the painting, simply because it's easier to motivate myself to work on 24 figures than 48. I should manage to get them very near to completion tonight. Then tomorrow I should be able to do the same with the 24 heavy weapons guys. After that it will be onto the cavalry.
I think I'll need to take the command stand and regular foot figures into work with me to prep during my lunch breaks. At leas that will help make sure I have a chance of finishing them all in time!
*in appearance only, I'm not very athletic these days
