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).

Friday Workbench 27 October

I'm going to be away on Sunday, so I've brought my "Workbench" post forward.

I've been busy this week with prepping all the figures I bought at SELWG on Sunday. They're all done now and ready to get glued onto bases and painting sticks ready for priming (and eventually painting). And what do you know, just as I finish prepping them the three packs (two of Ming horse archers, one of Korean infantry) on back-order from Timecast arrived. I guess that means a bit more prep next week.

After a brief lull due to a horrible cold which I'd had last week I got back to painting a couple of nights ago, then carried on this evening, and finished painting another unit of Ming spear & dao infantry. I took a pic before giving them a coat of Klear/ink.

I'll finish them off next week and make a start on another unit.

I think there was another demo game on one of the trader stands but I didn't get a pic of it.

Phew! that was a bit of a pic-dump! Once again, like with all shows, a number of games had nothing to indicate who they were being run by or what battle was being fought. And not speaking to people showing an interest in the game.
