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 25 May 2022


I'm very nearly done with the airbrushing stage - just two boards left to do the red on. I might have got them finished today if I'd remembered that the grey I'd used before was a mix (3 parts Wolf Grey: 1 part Sombre Grey) before I'd done all of the bits with Sombre Grey.

I have been doing some more 3D printing since Saturday:

Airborne Jeep

This was re-scaled from 1:100. This was the third attempt, using standard supports. Those turned out to be a nightmare to remove. I'm going to have to play around with those to see if I can get a decent print.

28mm Air Rafts

I ended up with two of these. Having printed one, I had a silly idea of printing an extra middle section to make it a four-seater:

I'd forgotten about the trim though, so I just printed extra front and rear sections to make up a second.

For the past two days I've been running calibration tests to fine tune the printer. I'm very nearly done with that. 


  1. Nice progress on the airbrushing Tamsin, and don't you just hate forgetting that you used a mix once you've finished spraying !
    Nice new prints as well, do like the air rafts, and conversion.

    1. Cheers! It was annoying, but easily fixed. As for the stretch air-raft, I'll probably by their variants pack which includes a properly done one! :)

  2. I’m very impressed at your dedication and sticking to one project! It’s all looking great too.

    1. To be quite honest, I wish I hadn't gone for three sets of walkways - so much boring repetition to paint all the bits... :)

  3. So THIS is what you've been up to! The possibilities...

    A 3D printer will probably be my retirement present to myself in a few years!

    1. They're cheap enough that you don't really have to wait! :)
