Wednesday Workbench 10 October

Well, I didn't do anything on the tanks yesterday, so I had to do the highlighting today.

As you can see, I've also done the red lines on the sides of the Matilda. And glued the M3's MG back onto the post (it was too narrow to drill for pinning, so I'll need to be careful with it).

At the weekend, inspired by something I saw on Facebook I decided to order a new set of figures from Studio Miniatures to paint up during the Challenge this winter. While I was there I spotted a figure which set off some more inspiration and ordered that and a few others as well. They arrived today:

This set is a new release and what I went on the site to order. Does anyone know of a miniature which might be suitable for representing a psychotic Glaswegian hamster?

It was the Elvis figure which sent me down the rabbit hole of ordering these. I've recently re-read "The Book With No Name" by "Anonymous" and there is a bounty hunter who is an Elvis lookalike. The other figures? The others could all be used to represent other characters in the book.

For a few more weeks they are including this Flashman figure with orders over £40.


  1. Great painting, Tamsin, and a truly tempting post to get that wonderful Flashman figure too. Fiendishly tempting in fact ;-)

  2. Love that Matilda - real classic. Well done Tamsin.

  3. Like the way you have done the tanks! - those figures look very 'Hasslefree'- esque to me?. What plans have you to use those for?

  4. Tanks came out great!

    Those minis have so much character! They look excellent fun to paint up.

  5. Lovely work on those tanks. Very nice indeed.

  6. @ Blax - thanks Simon! I hadn't realised about the offer when I was ordering so was a little confused when it arrived with the rest :)

    @ Greg B - cheers! :)

    @ Geordie - thanks! :)

    @ Peter - cheers! :)

    @ Herkybird - thanks! Some of those figures were previously sold through Hasslefree. I've got no plans for using them at the moment... :)

    @ Dai - cheers! Having painted soem of their other figures in the past, they are fun to paint :)

    @ Chris - thanks! :)

    @ Lee - cheers! :)
