What a scorching week we've had here in the UK topped with an incredibly scorching weekend. The heat has left me feeling too worn out to paint during the week and yesterday I caught the sun a bit on the back of my neck which left me feeling slightly unwell later on so it wasn't until today that I managed to get any painting done.
Kev over at Kev's Wargames Cabin had a prize draw to celebrate reaching 30K page views. I'm obviously experiencing some good karma at the moment as I won. The prize was the Ludus Gladiatorus game from EM4 Miniatures which includes five pre-painted 28mm gladiator figures. This could be fun for filler games at the club.
I'd made pretty good progress last weekend on the Korean foot, which left me in a good position to finish them today. Of course, the heat didn't make things easy but I found that painting one colour then taking a break allowed me to take them all the way through. And here are some pics:
I've just got another six of these units to paint up plus the artillery and I can say that my Koreans are finished for now.
While I was doing the Koreans, I also did a few little bits on the figures I'm painting up for Donogh. I think I will make an effort to finish these off in the evenings this week. Pics of them as of now:
I am planning on playing Saga at the club on Thursday. There should be four of us, so Ian has suggested we try out the "Wooden Oaths" scenario. There is also a suggestion that on 14 October we should do a multi-player Battle of Hastings fight using Saga which sounds like it could be fun.
With Modelzone in administration, they are apparently selling off their stock at heavy discounts. I'm going to take advantage and pop down to the store on New Oxford Street (which they only opened at the beginning of June) to pick up some Vallejo paints, matt varnish spray and maybe a kit or two.
