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.

Finished: 28mm "Adonis"

I varnished the commander this morning and glued him into his hatch, so it was time for a quick photo shoot.

And introducing him to his 1 Troop brothers:

And his cousin Demon from the 1st Armoured Reconnaissance Squadron:

I've also gunked the bases for the latest batch of Artizan and Crusader Paras:

When the gunk has fully dried I will glue the prone PIAT loader and the 3" mortar onto their textured bases; the Vickers MMGs and 6 pounder will be painted off-base to make it easier to paint the gunners.


  1. Great work, Tamsin. That's some corking painted models you have on show there :-)

  2. Fantastic job, these tanks look awesome.

  3. Stunning work on your Tank troop, mind you, all those lovely commanders look like 'Sniper bait' to me!

  4. lovely job and also beautifully photographed.

  5. More terrific work. Well done, once again.

  6. Which theatre are you planning use these for?

  7. Great looking tanks and drivers Tamsin

    @ Herkybird - thanks! The infantry have been spraying the treetops with MGs, so the sniper threat has been eliminated :)

  10. Great work Tamsin. I really like the weathering on 'Adonis'.

    Also, notice how I always come in late? I hate being grouped with the horde of '@ responses'. ;)

    1. Thanks! He thinks he's a beauty ;)

      I had noticed, but figured it was that renowned Canadian politeness, allowing me to reply to everyone else first! :)

  11. Wonderful work. That's a cracker for sure.
