Quickie update


The figs I ordered from Black Hat have arrived (the not-Wookies and not-Ewoks). Unfortunately, the not-Wookie "Yeti Infantry" are a lot smaller than the not-Wookie "Chumbondas" that I got from Wargames Supply Dump, so I won't be able to use them in mixed squads (and probably not together). I guess the size difference was to be expected - the Chumbondas are 20mm size-not-scale, the Yetis are 15mm. I think the Yetis may be yet another race for my eventual solo SF campaign.

I must say that I was very pleased with the service from Black Hat - very quick processing and delivery, plus good communications.

Painting update. 

I was knackered last night so didn't do any painting, and was slightly less knackered tonight so I didn't want to do anything too taxing. Therefore I just painted the ground colour onto the bases of the horses. The decorative bits and markings will probably be done over the next 2 evenings.


  1. Your getting there Tamsin. Big project but the end's in sight.

  2. Even if tired, it's always worth trying to do SOMETHING each night just to keep things moving along. Even if it's only prepping the next batch or slapping bulk paint on!

  3. I agree with Andy, any progress is still progress...

  4. Any progress is not to be sniffed at...this coming from someone who's painting output over the last couple of months has been abysmal!
