Greetings ladies and gentleman.

Having recently joined the forum, I figured a painting log was in oder to keep track of what I do and for your perusal. I practice the correct manner of wargaming in that I have way too many projects on the go and no army is ever complete. This results in all manner of shennanigans occuring on the paint desk.

Frst up, and since this is the pendraken forum, are some 10mm. The main thing that has drawn me here is the napoleonics, so I ordered a small pack and did a couple of test minis. Here's number 1:

I was pleased with it but it needed tweaking so here, after some tips on the fourm, is number 2:

This was a little slower as I didn't cheat and use a wash but I am happier with it. Need to push the flesh a little more but good otherwise. I shall be using this scheme on the new Peninsular Brits which I will be backing shorlty.

What else do I paint I here you all cry? Here is a selection of my personal work for my various armies:

Repulican Roman Velites in 15mm from War and Empire:

Polish 7tp Tanks in 20mm from Early War Miniatures:

And some Goblin Spear Chukkas from the Evil Empire:

I also dabble in some part time commission work. My latest batch is 28mm War of Spanish Succession Bavarians from Ebor Miniatures. I had been asked to paint four battalions (2 each of Leib Guard and Cologne Electoral Guard) and have completed three so far:

Anyway, I think that is enough for now - hopefully I haven't overwhwelmed you all too much. I am soon to be ordering some ACW from pendraken so hopefully I will have something to show soon in the 10mm scale. However, be prepared from a bit of everything before then.

All the best

Your 10mm test subject number 2 is looking great.

If you've got a hold of paint dropper bottles, I find blue tacking the minis on those efficient.

Cheers for all the kind words peeps.

Reently I managed to get 8 French line infantry finished up. Had these lying around for ages and painted them up to get them out the way. They may go on eBay to raise funds for the garage conversion.

No photos but currently on the desk are 21 of the Cologne Electoral Guard n 28mm and 24 Republican Romans in 15mm.
