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 Update 30 June

I've been quite busy today. The airbrush has seen a lot of action and I've done a few other things.

The Eureka figures got primed (well, eleven of them did); the figure that had lost the tip of it's Owen gun had a new barrel tip created using 0.5mm piano wore and green stuff (the picture above shows it before shaping of the cured putty); the Patrol markers and basic jump off points were airbrushed green and had Aussie flags added (and were later sprayed with matt varnish). I also airbrushed a Chain of Command dashboard (from Warbases) with the same green.

I also airbrushed some casualty counters (for recording "shock"), some "pinned down" tokens and some "broken" tokens (all from Warbases).

Work on the Owen gun:

Wire inserted, green stuff added

Green stuff shaped

I've stuck him on a base and will prime the figure tomorrow.

I've also done a bit of work on the non-basic jump off points:

I need to add a few more bits before priming and painting them.


  1. Brave girl, modifying a broken gun! I am never happy getting that perfect alignment!

  2. good job on the gun, makes me more inclined to have a go at repairing some of my 'wounded' troops.

  3. Good choice with Chain of Command.

  4. @ Herkybird - by brave, I take it you mean stark raving bonkers? ;)

    @ Norm - cheers! You just have to be very careful with drilling the hole for the piano wire to go into :)

    @ Michael A - thanks! :)

    @ Ross - cheers! :)

    @ Lead-Lined - yup, CoC seems much better than Bolt Action, plus people at the club play it :)
