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).

Paint Table Saturday 15 May

Rather than start this post with a photo, I thought it would be better to write something and then post a series of progress pics on the hills.

There, I've written something. Now for the pics.

Basecoats applied and rock details washed and drybrushed:

For the large piece I did the rocks to fit in with the wasteland rock formations I did last year:

Grit and sand added to the wasteland hills:

Sealed with a mix of paint and PVA glue:

After three stages of drybrushing:

Tomorrow I will be going back over some of the rocks with a wash to add depth then I can call this set done (apart from a coat of matt varnish when the weather improves).

Blogger Problem Overnight

Late last night, Blogger had a bit of a meltdown. Something had happened which caused Chrome (owner: Google) to declare the entirety of Blogger (owner: Google) to be dangerous, malicious and/or deceptive. They also started flagging posts as having malware or viruses and deleting them. As far as I am aware only one of my posts was removed - I got an email telling me so. After commenting on the help/feedback thread someone had started about the issue, I did get another email telling me that the post had been reviewed and reinstated. It took me a couple of hours to find that rather than reinstate it as a published post, it had been reset to "Draft".

If any of you had posts deleted and reinstated, but they haven't reappeared on your blog, do check your posts list and see if they are back as "Draft".


  1. Funny, I just checked, and all my posts have been ok, I wonder if its a local issue, or my Pfizer-BioNTech jabs protected me!!!

    Good progress on the hills, by the by!!!

  2. Excellent progress on the hills Tamsin. Thanks for the heads up re Blogger. I had a similar email to say the post in question had been reinstated. I will have a look in drafts now.
    Cheers, Richard P

  3. The Hills have come out brilliantly Tamsin, Luckily didn't have any problem with my posts, just another pain !

  4. @ Herkybird - thanks! :)
    It seems to have been very random. If any of your posts had been affected, you would have had emails from Google telling you so (one for each deletion, one for each reinstatement). One person I saw on the help forum thread had had about 70 posts deleted and reinstated, with separate emails for each post! :o

    @ Richard - cheers! Glad to have been of help! :)

    @ Dave - thanks! Lucky you! :)
