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).

Finished: Rusty Scatter Terrain for Judge Dredd; Lockdown Podcast #26

I didn't get much painted this week for two main reasons:

1. Last Tuesday evening I started to get a painful swelling on the left side of my face, followed by a mild fever. It appears that I have a (suspected, yet to be confirmed) case of mumps. The pain got worse on Wednesday and continued on Thursday and I wasn't able to focus on things, so didn't do any painting. Luckily it seems to be a lot better now, but eating solid food is still rather uncomfortable and difficult (mainly because the swelling is limiting how far my mouth will open).

2. Having got all the painting done on Friday, I decided on Saturday that the skip needed to be filled with rubble. Adding filler in stages and letting it cure took some time and I didn't finishing painting it until this morning.




Lockdown Podcast #26

I should have posted this at the weekend, but forgot.

Among the usual risible content, listen in to find out all about "Assyrian relief", "tea potting" in Early Imperial Rome, our different approaches to basing figures and to endure the French Techno music that heralds Andy's Quiz.


  1. Hope you feel better soon Tamsin, had mumps as a kid but don't really remember a whole lot about it, but do hope it clears quickly for you.
    The scatter terrain looks excellent, with all the weathering and added detail in the skip

  2. The scatter terrain looks great and hope you feel better soon

  3. Hope you are feeling better soon.
    Great work on the scatter, particularly like the dumpsters.

  4. That terrain is a work of art, obviously mumps agrees with you!! (or at least your painting mojo)!!!
