A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break. My current interests are Ancients, ACW, 30YW and SciFi gaming.

Saturday Workbench

I had a fairly busy afternoon today. As I'd managed to finish prepping all the Nubians (apart from the two packs of archers I'm still waiting for) I decided to glue them onto painting sticks. As my plan is to prime them with two different browns as a base, I divided all the figure poses into two lots before gluing onto sticks. I also managed to get them primed - half with German Red Brown, half with Leather Brown. When I go to paint them, I'll probably pre-highlight from a high angle using a pale brown before airbrushing on a thin coat of camo black brown.

Anyway, here are some pics:

German Dark Red primer

Leather Brown primer

I also primed the Mongol reinforcements:

Medium cavalry and baggage camp bits

Heavy impact cavalry and foot

I just need to give the metal areas a black basecoat, then they can be put away until the Challenge.

I also basecoated the bases for the Nubians, just to fill in time between bouts of priming.

Tomorrow, once my chores and a bit of shopping are done, I'll make a start on the Korean crossbowmen.
