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.

Wednesday Workbench 12 December

Rather annoyingly, I've had a cold for the last few days. It knocked me for six on Monday, which meant I ended up missing an afternoon game of ADLG.

However, I have been able to get quite a bit of figure assembly and priming done despite the lurgy:

54 foot knights (seen on Sunday, primed Monday)

3 days of assembly and priming...

72 longbowmen (plus some stands of arrows)

48 billmen, 12 men at arms, 18 spearmen and four command figures

Yesterday I received two packages in the post. They contained this:

Warbases - assorted MDF bases for various projects, plus some bunnies and (more) wolves

North Star - Artizan 8th Army figures (and a senior officer from the Thrilling Tales range). Oh, and even more wolves.

Those figures have all been prepped and washed today. When they are dry, I'll stick them on bases and get them primed tomorrow.

I do still have some prep to do before the Challenge begins. That should keep me out of mischief for the next few days.


  1. I, too have been suffering this week with bronchitis - so I sympathise! I am still trying to build and prep kits as therapy, but you put my poor efforts into shadow!
    Continue to inspire us, Tamsin!

  2. We know that and have one 2 weeks ago.đŸ€§đŸ€•đŸ€’
    As you We was enable to paint because our Eyes don't see the same thing at the same moment...đŸ€Ș
    So we had prepared Our Future Paint Tray !😊
    Good work Tamsin!😎

  3. That is an impressive amount of figures assembled and ready for painting. Good luck! 😀

  4. Great job in getting everything assembled and ready to go. Are you working on an 8th Army force for WWII? If so have you decided on which nationality you will be looking to model?

  5. @ Herkybird - I'll do my best to continue inspiring you! :)

    @ Fran - cheers m'dear! :)

    @ L'Empereur - thanks! :)

    @ Stew - cheers! :)

    @ Jerry - thanks! Almost there now with the prep and priming :)
    The 8th Army figures are intended for use as Aussie 7th Division on the Kokoda Trail or at Milne Bay; and maybe 8th Division in Malaya. Of course, they could also be used as Aussies in North Africa or the Middle East.
