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 19 January 2022


I've done very little painting since the weekend. All I've done on that front is to basecoat and wash the next batch of WW2 Japanese:

That doesn't mean that I've been idle. Oh, no, sirree - I've been busy de-spruing, cleaning up and assembling a load of MDF terrain. This is what I've assembled so far:

That's everything that was in the "white box bundle" I bought from TT Combat at last year's SELWG show.

I've also de-sprued some MDF scatter terrain:

The bits in the bags are from Blotz, the rest is from TT Combat. I'll be cleaning the bits up (at least, those that need them) and getting them assembled tomorrow.

As a result, I have quite a stack of sprues to snip up for use with damaged buildings:

Of course, tomorrow I will also be painting those Japanese in between bouts of MDF work.

I'm not sure when I'll get round to working on the terrain. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get them primed and painted during the Challenge.


  1. Nothing quite like those "behind the scenes" snippets we see from time to time....I sometimes feel a bit guilty not having something to blog about each week, as like you, i've been busy with "behind the scenes" stuff....as I am not sure showing images of priming miniatures is very useful or noteworthy. Cheers Tamsin!

    1. I've been doing "behind the scenes" posts for almost as long as I've been blogging. I find that they help me to keep blogging and to keep track of how I've done things before if I ever add to armies.

  2. Some great looking buildings Tamsin.

    1. They'll look even better when I eventually get them painted! :)

  3. I have stacks of those MDF cast offs, and they are still waiting for me to do anything with, I sooo wish I had your focus!

    1. I'm just hoping to find the time to do something with them! :)
