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 22 September


I've been taking things slowly with these, mostly because of drying times. I also took a good few hours out on Monday to get in a game of ADLG at the club (my Sea Peoples masquerading as Philistines against Mike R's Neo Babylonians). Shockingly, I won - it was a very close call as my army was only one point away from itself being broken.

However, they are very nearly finished now. As you can see, I have added some plastic plants to the "hasty" bridge along with some underbrush; I've also added scrub mix to all of the end bases.

There's not much to do now. I just need to fix the scrub mix and underbrush with scenic cement, airbrush the plastic plants with my brown ink wash and then seal everything with a spray coat of matt varnish. They should be finished on Friday.

I'm not sure what to do next. I still need to do some bunkers and entrenchments for the jungle project, but I will need to order some more materials as I'm almost out of my scrub mix. I might make a start on prepping the Korean and Ming Chinese figures I received a few weeks ago and get them ready for painting.


  1. Looking good Tamsin, the additions on the bases, with the scrub and plants, really add character.

  2. Well done winning with the 'Silly Swines' - I used to have one, and it didn't win at all!!!

  3. Nice work Tamsin! And a wins a win!

  4. @ Geordie - cheers! :)

    @ Dave - thanks! :)

    @ Herkybird - I might have done even better if I hadn't screwed up my initial deployment. :)

    @ Ray - cheers! :)
