Wednesday Workbench 13 November

As you can see, I've been making good progress with the third board of British paras - first batch done (apart from varnishing) and second batch started. I should finish the second batch on Friday leaving just one batch to do which (if all goes well) will be finished on Sunday. I can then varnish the whole lot on Monday.

Here's a slightly closer pic of the first batch:

Yes, I have painted tartan! It was actually less difficult than I'd expected, once I got past an initial mistake.

Once they are all done, I will switch to painting the lizardmen - they should be a quick paint job, but will act as a nice palate cleanser.


  1. Ah, painting tartan. Why do we do it to ourselves? Although you are right, once you get a system it is easier than expected. (But I'm not painting any more Napoleonic Highlanders in a hurry.)

  2. Excellent work Tamsin, the tartan is awesome, I am however looking forward to seeing the lizardmen

  3. I really like the subdued colours, they make the figures so much more realistic looking!!!

  4. Great work, not sure that guy in the kilt would be jump safe ;)

  5. Great work Tamsin coming along nicely.

  6. @ marinergrim - cheers! :)

    @ Michael A - thanks! :)

    @ Peter B - thankfully that was the only one, and I have no plans for painting highlanders so it should be the last! :)

    @ Dave Stone - cheers! The lizardmen might be along in a few days :)

    @ Ray - thanks! :)

    @ Herkybird - cheers! Subdued? Maybe it's just the lighting :)

    @ Paul SS - thanks! Just as well he was a glider pilot rather than a para then! :)

    @ Stuart S - cheers! :)
