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: US Para HQ and 60mm Mortar Squads


If you recall my Wednesday Workbench post, I did indeed finish them today!

HQ Squad

Platoon Sergeant, Lt, 2nd Lt plus rifleman

60mm Mortar Squad

The HQ squad figures are all Crusader; the mortar squad are all Artizan apart from the kneeling chap with carbine which is Crusader.

And that is it (for now) for my US Para force. All in, I have painted 90 figures in slightly over 3 weeks (which included a few days of painting breaks). At some point I will be adding rank insignia decals and tufting the bases.The decals will have to wait until I next place an order with Warlord.

My next project will be more airborne troops, this time some Polish paras for my Arnhem collection. The first figures are out on the table ready for me to begin painting them:

There are just eighteen figures for this mini-project, which I will paint in batches of nine. Conveniently nine are in berets and nine are in helmets.


  1. Well the whole project took you no time at all Tamsin, and excellent work throughout

  2. Congratulations on finishing your lovely Paras, They will look excellent on the tabletop!

  3. @ Dave - thanks! :)

    @ Herkybird - cheers! :)
