I was quite happy with the finished result though the skin shading didn't have as much definition as I wanted and as usual the photo's aren't brilliant.
Happy New Year
At colours last weekend I picked up a RUINS OF DALDORR kit. This was the 1st woodern kit for me and was not sure how it would go together as I can be all cack handed. Well I'm happy to say the kit was a joy to build with clear instructions (in colour) and parts that went together nicely. I was even instructed on where to place clamps and pegs.
A few images of the finished ruin are attached.
So I'll be looking out for some more of this splendid range and maybe some in 15mm.
Thanks for stopping by.
I had a day out at the races today - well Colours at Newbury racetrack to be precise. I took my eldest boy along and he bought a bargain from the bring and buy, 42 figures for a fiver. Most were ok, some were painted but he was happy. Well he is 7!
I got my self some frostgrave rules and figures and a few other little bits.
The show was busy at first but the afternoon was a bit quieter and easier to get around. I enjoyed the day and glad the show was back on the calendar.
Laekend I finished this French regiment - Saintonage and thought it was time I posted a picture or two of them.
The regiment has figures from the following Peter Pig AWI packs:
99. French line marching, 100. French line firing, 101. French command advancing and a couple of figures from 112. French wounded. The flag was from Revo and dulled down with a little wash and some citadel technical Lahmian Medium. Next time I use a Revo flag I will pace it on a piece of thin card to give it a bit strength.
As the weather's been loudly this bank holiday weekend I've cracked on with the next unit, some artillery suppport. Finished painting them yesterday but I don't know if I forgot or if I was still not quite recovered from the village beer festival the day before but I sprayed varnished them and it was raining outside. Result some of the figures were a dull grey mess. Out came the paintbrushes and brief spell later they were looking ok (well at least until I take a picture).
The last few months have been quite unproductive on the painting front but last week my elder boy said 'Dad them orcs you got me can you paint a few for me?' So he chose 3 and here they are. I'm not sure of any details apart from being orcs and plastic.
I might be doing some more soon.
