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).

Thursday Workbench 28 October


I forgot to do a "Wednesday Workbench" post yesterday, so you've got a "Thursday Workbench" post instead. I was meant to be at the club this afternoon & evening for an ACW ironclads game, but my lower back was "out" this morning. Luckily a few hours laid flat on my back seems to have sorted it. I had planned to do some shopping in central London before the game, but that will have to wait until next week.

In the photo above you can see the Korean light cavalry that I'm currently working on. They're almost finished - just the metal bits and some touch-ups (mostly hands) to do, then I can hit them with my Klear/ink wash, hopefully tomorrow. The Ming Chinese levy were finished a couple of days ago:

They will also get their Klear/ink wash tomorrow.

On Saturday I will be hitting all of the figures from this project with a coat of matte varnish; I should also make a start on the basing.


  1. Soooo, you're Minging again! I always look forward to the final pics, as they are lovely!

  2. Great progress Tamsin, hope your back is okay, and doesn't play you up too much, now the cold damp weather is here

  3. @ Herkybird - just a little! :)

    @ Dave - cheers! I think it was just a hail-back to the other week; it's been fine since then.
