About Me

A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).

WIP: Sarmatian Commanders

I've been doing a bit more work on these today. All the basecoat colours are done now. The figures will get a brown ink wash later on, then will get some highlights where appropriate. After the washes and highlights, the metalwork will be finished, including some gilt and "silver" detailing on scabbards, bowcases and quivers.

What's that? You want pics? Really? Oh well, here you go:

I've also finally got round to gluing the Chumbondas onto washers for magnetic transport.

So, what's on the cards for tomorrow:

1. Finish up painting the commanders
2. "Whitewash" the Alan and Scythian cavalry
3. Basecoat a load of bases for mounting all the cavalry on
4. Make a start on painting the TEDF armoured lancers


  1. Very nice work. Just one question: where do you find those sticks? I'd like to have a few of them.

    1. Seb - I get them from 4D Model Shop. You can buy online, but it's probably cheaper (no postage) and quicker to get them from the retail shop down near Tower Hill

    2. grrr - forgot to post the link: http://www.modelshop.co.uk/search,l.html?q=mixing+stick

  2. Nice work, cant wait to see the finished articles

  3. Great work there Tamsin. They are looking very nice.

  4. Wow loads of detail looks great!

  5. These look absolutely fantastic! Great work

  6. Nice work! Love the different colours and the lances...
