This Week, I Shall Mostly Be Painting..............

The Letter P



Taking their positions on the painting table, we have, in no particular order

Pyrrhic Army For Impetus



As a result of the incessant badgering I received when out drinking with the New Buckingham War-games crowd, these long forgotten lads have crept back onto the table.
I "only" need to do the Cretan Archers (at the front) and the Greek cavalry (at the back) plus a general to lead the army ( I have a suitable Pyrrhus) and its game time
note the use of "only" because in the language of the Villageidiot this means I will take an age, making sure every little detail, and shady bit is done to my satisfaction.
I'm a perfectionist like that (tosser)

Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth for ?


In a concerted effort to cause myself the maximum amount of pain, and frustration, I have elected to re-start the torment of trying to paint the Poles.
I would say its because I like a challenge, but its more the fact that the masochist in me desires the torture of trying to make a decent job of them.

Lovely models from the Assault Group's fairly large Renaissance Range

Expect them to last about, oooohhhh a week or so, before they return to their cardboard box under the desk.




It may not have escaped your attention, than Spain has mostly fallen off the painting desk, well I got bored painting them TBH. All that khaki drab gets a bit tiring old bean.

 I was hoping that Empress would release some new figures for the range, at Salute, but it seems that we will get nothing else added, which is a bit of a shame.

I'm sure that I will get sick of lurid colours, and blokes with wings, and will crave the subtle tones of the SCW once more

You Know What I Am Like

Cheers folks, see you all soon, hopefully with a finished army...............



Don't hold your breath though.
