Sunday Update 03 November

As well as varnishing the second batch of paras on Thursday, I also got a bunch of priming done while I had the airbrush booth set up. I haven't primed the barbarians yet as I plan to do them all in one go and I am waiting for the extra figures I ordered to arrive.

I've also got an order in for some more foam trays for my paras, and need to wait for these to arrive before I continue that project as I'm almost out of slots in my current trays.

Therefore, I decided to switch to a different project - a return to the SYW Russians. Over the past couple of days I have been painting the mounted dragoons purchased at SELWG. I finished them this morning (just the varnishing needed to be done) and have started work on some artillery - 6 crew, 2 limbers and 1 cannon:

When these are finished (hopefully tomorrow) I will do the basing for them and the dragoons. After that, I will have to see what I fancy doing next...OK, OK, you clearly know me too well - I'll carry on and paint some of the other SYW Russians.


  1. I am looking forward to seeing more of your lovely painting on those!

  2. Can fully understand the switching on projects due to not having all the figures and running out of protective foam, the Russians are looking great

  3. Very disciplined there Tamsin with your painting and switching projects at the drop of a hat. Looking forward to seeing more of your para's.

  4. @ Herkybird - thanks! :)

    @ Dave Stone - cheers! :)

    @ Silver Whistle - thanks Pat! Sometimes it helps to switch projects, although on this occasion it was due to storage issues rather than boredom! :)
    Enjoying your new book btw :)
