About Me

My photo
London, United Kingdom, United Kingdom
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).

Aussies On Parade

I decided to spend some time this morning adding tufts to the bases of all the Aussies that I've painted so far. And then to take a bunch of photos of them all. So, here you are - a bit of a photo dump!

For those that haven't been following my posts, the figures are a mix of Aussies from Warlord Games, Eureka Miniatures, Artizan Designs and Wartime Miniatures, with a few Chnidits from The Assault Group and Wargames Foundry.

Saturday Update 30 June

I've been quite busy today. The airbrush has seen a lot of action and I've done a few other things.

The Eureka figures got primed (well, eleven of them did); the figure that had lost the tip of it's Owen gun had a new barrel tip created using 0.5mm piano wore and green stuff (the picture above shows it before shaping of the cured putty); the Patrol markers and basic jump off points were airbrushed green and had Aussie flags added (and were later sprayed with matt varnish). I also airbrushed a Chain of Command dashboard (from Warbases) with the same green.

I also airbrushed some casualty counters (for recording "shock"), some "pinned down" tokens and some "broken" tokens (all from Warbases).

Work on the Owen gun:

Wire inserted, green stuff added

I've stuck him on a base and will prime the figure tomorrow.

I've also done a bit of work on the non-basic jump off points:

I need to add a few more bits before priming and painting them.
