Wednesday Workbench 16 October

After a bit of a hiccup thanks to a weekend lurgy, work on the Paras has cracked on apace. I finished painting the second batch yesterday and today have made good progress on the third batch:

I've done a little bit more work since taking the above photo. They should be finished tomorrow, at which point I'll take a short break before beginning work on the next batches which will be the support weapon teams and oddments.

I have made a small change to the webbing colour; the first batch looked a little bit too dark, so I'm now using a mix of German Uniform and Intermediate Green as the base.

I've also prepped and assembled a few extra bits that I've bought:


  1. More great work Tamsin, and some more interesting bits on the way as well

  2. I am amazed how fast, and diligently you keep pumping out excellent figures!
    It does beg the question though, what mansion do you keep for storing them all???!!!

  3. These really look the business Tamsin.

  4. Coming along nicely. Good luck getting over the lurgy, it took me a few days.

  5. They look great.... I'm always impressed with the rate that some people can keep up when it comes to painting
