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).

Paint Table Saturday 10 July


Today I have mostly been painting the bottoms of terrain bases. As you can see from the photo above, quite a few of them. They are now ready to go when I need them. Last night I got the trees bases painted, top and bottom:

These trees bases are from Charlie Foxtrot Models. The larger ones are for 70mm bases, the smaller ones for 50mm bases. 

I also glued 5mm blue foam squares to some 50mm and 70mm round bases, and some terrain bases onto sheets of 5mm blue foam:

This evening I have used my hotwire cutter to cut out the terrain bases and to bevel the edges of those and the round bases:

Since taking those photos I have sanded down the bevels. The round bases will have trees added at some point, the terrain bases will be for additional kunai grass and bamboo thickets.

Tomorrow I will probably be working on the "chunky trunk" palm trees, to get them done. After that I will be tarting up various pine and deciduous trees.


  1. Great work Tamsin, your on fire at the moment

    1. I'd hardly describe slapping a couple of layers of brown emulsion paint onto MDF bases as "great work". Stakanovite work might be a better term. :)

    2. Greatness starts with the most simple steps ! LOL
