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).

Wednesday Workbench 31 March

With the 6mm ACW finally out of the way, I've turned my attention to other projects. Over the weekend I had cleaned up the extra US paras and got them glued onto bases. While I was doing that, I remembered the Polish paras I'd bought several months ago and glued them onto bases as well.

Yesterday I added "gunk" to all the bases, which took a couple of hours. Today I primed all the figures.

Polish Paras

US Paras - 1 platoon plus SF-MG team

US Paras - 2 platoon (minus 2 figs), bazooka teams, BARs and specialists

It turns out that I am still short two riflemen, for the HQ squad of the 2nd platoon. I also need a couple of figures to go with the engineer to make a team for Chain of Command. However, there's no great rush to buy them - painting this lot should keep me busy for a few weeks.

Tomorrow should see me starting on the US paras, testing out paint schemes.


  1. More great looking paras on the horizon Tamsin.

  2. Its annoying you are short those 2 riflemen, buy them immediately!!!

  3. Do you ever slow down? LOL

  4. @ Dave - thanks! :)

    @ Herkybird - I'll hold on until I need to place another order! :)

    @ Ian - sometimes, sometimes... :)
