About Me

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 22 January 2022


I finished the Japanese last night, took photos today and have submitted the post in good time for publication tomorrow.

With that out of the way, what's on the workbench now?

Some 15mm cavalry is what! So far I've done the base colours on the horses; later tonight I'll apply the wash and should finish detailing them tomorrow. Then it will be on to the riders. If all goes well, these will be finished by Thursday.

But what's in those bags? Ahhh, that's something I started work on a couple of days ago, but you'll just have to wait until they're done to see.

During the week I placed a couple of orders and they both arrived this afternoon:

Some paints from SnM Stuff and some goodies from Warlord.

Another pack for Mega City One and some reinforcements for my Japanese. The other pack above the tank? Errmmm, well, that's for a secret project.

While I was taking photos of the Japanese earlier today, I also took the opportunity to take photos ofthe MDF terrain I'd assembled in something resembling a layout:

That's a very cramped 80cm x 60cm. I had thought I might want to order some extra pre-fab buildings, but it looks as though I might not need them.


  1. Lot's going on Tamsin, The MDF terrain looks great set out like that.

  2. Great progress, and if I may say, very organised!
    I am looking forward especially to seeing how those Asiatic(?) Horse archers come out?!

    1. I find that with so much going on that it helps to be somewhat organised. :)

  3. You have made a huge amount of shiny into great looking units. The scenery is a really cool set up, maybe we'll see it latter?
    BTW, the layout is not too cramped, rather a hiding place rich environment!
