Sunday Update 17 November

Progress on the paras has been slower than I'd hoped. I had a bad bout of insomnia on Wednesday night, and wasn't up to painting on Thursday and then on Friday my right (painting) hand was aching for some reason. However, I have managed to make up time over the weekend and got the second batch finished. I'll start on the third batch tomorrow - unless anything else goes wrong, I should have the whole board finished and varnished by Wednesday evening.

A slightly closer look at the second batch:

Once this board is finished it won't quite be the end of the paras - I have a few more figures and other bits still to paint.


  1. Ah, the end is nigh! I am sure you will get lots of Oooh's and Aahs when they grace your first battlefield!

  2. Sorry about the hard time sleeping.
    Here's to a better week, ahead.

  3. Looking excellent Tamsin, hope your health improves this week

  4. Impressive output Tamsin! Looking forward to a group shot once the whole lot is finished.

  5. @ Herkybird - it is indeed. Well, until I add some more jeeps to do a Recce Troop at any rate :)

    @ Whisk - thanks! It was just a one-off and I'm feeling much better now :)

    @ Marinergrim - cheers! :)

    @ Dave Stone - thanks! It has :)

    @ Paul SS - cheers! :)

    @ Nick - thanks! I'll definitely do a group shot when they're all done :)
