Sorry for the short break in posting folks. I've been shattered all week so hadn't done any painting which left me with nothing to post.
You might remember that Andres at Einar Olafson Painting made an offer to paint up the Salute 2013 Jason miniature for 3 lucky people and that I was one of them. It arrived yesterday and is truly gorgeous work. thanks Andres!
Last night, in an attempt to get myself back into the swing of things, I decided to assemble the three 4Ground peasant carts I'd bought at Salute for Saga games. I must say that they were very quick and easy to assemble and they don't look half bad. I suppose I'd better get myself some oxen to draw them....
I've actually been in a bit of a rut the past few weeks. Donogh's Hasslefree figures have been giving my accusing looks, but I seem to have hit a brick wall with them. It has been so long since I started them that I have forgotten what colours I was using. I think the best thing for me to do would be to strip them down and start again.
I also want to finish off my Koreans. I've still got a whole load of medium foot to do (seven 8-base units), plus the artillery and some command stands. I think these will be the next to go on the painting table and I'll start prepping a batch this afternoon, and prep more batches during the week.
Once the Koreans are done, I should have received all the figures I need for my Pirates and they will be the next army to go into production. My intention with these is to get the whole army prepped and mounted on painting sticks, then paint them up together using a couple of colours per session. The alternative is to stick them on bases before painting and do them in batches.
