AHPC9 Day 23 - Saturday Workbench 12 January

Before adding gunk

I managed to finish painting and varnishing the 15mm SYW Russians very late last night.  I was out this morning, but when I'd got home and had a coffee, I cracked on with adding basing gunk to them.  Well, that was quite a job - it took me about 90 minutes all told.

Gunk added

The gunk will take several hours to cure and dry, so the dry-brushing and flocking will have to be done tomorrow.

Later on today I'll probably start work on painting some more figures. I haven't decided which project to tackle next.

As far as the Challenge goes, I'm currently sitting very near the top of the points table.  I'm also very much on track for achieving my 3000 point target.


  1. You're going great guns Tamsin.

  2. Great Scot you are a painting machine
    A recent painting spree unit of three Malburiam 28mm units has left me feeling shattered
    Respect :)

  3. Congrats to being on track for your goal. Hot dog!

  4. Full speed ahead! You might want to do what several of my friends do and have different groups of miniatures at different stages. If you felt like doing hobby stuff while the gunk cured, you could move on and prime something or block in some base colors on something else while waiting.
    Enjoy the new builds!

  5. @ Ray - it certainly helps, having so much free time for painting :)

    @ Francis - cheers! :)

    @ Geordie - how many times do I have to say this? I am not, repeat NOT, a machine! ;)

    @ Whisk - thanks and boogie-boogie! :)

    @ Jerry - and Warp Factor 8! I actually had various things i could crack on with while the gunk dried and just selected one of them. If you look back a few weeks, you'll see just how much I have primed and ready for painting. :)

  6. Seems like you really are churning out the miniatures! Soon you’ll have vast armies to command. Continue the good pace!
    I’m also more productive after coffee. 😀
