Between the pandemic, some work issues (Yes, I'm still working from home during Ontario's lockdown), and teaching a T-Rex to reach 4th position on the trombone, it's been busy. I've discovered that I also like to work on multiple painting projects at the same time. Getting things done takes longer but it's not boring. Not everybody works this way, I know... but I do and I'll continue.
Here's a few things I've been finishing on the painting table (often with Time Team on the TV in the background.)
|Medieval Irish from Wargames Atlantic|
Separate heads, arms, and weapons give you a lot of options.
Many people don't like the "fiddly" nature of such figures, but I like them.
Can't you hear them yell? "Póg mo thóin!"
(Wardogs are included!)
|Spanish Civil War Republican Tinzano (improvised armoured vehicle)|
3-D printed for me by my good friend, Dr. Martin.
(PCE? Translation - Spanish Communist Party)
|Halfling Rogues by WhizKids|
The lighting is poor and I'm using a somewhat paler flesh for Caucasian types,
relying on inking for detail and contrast.
|I wish I knew what this guy is. Looks kind of "undead-ish."|
You never know when something like this might come in handy.
|A late Roman armoured legionary by a company I think Warlord Games has absorbed.|
Another Medieval Irishman armed with the ol' blackthorne stick or shillelagh.
|Velociraptors from WhizKids... found in my Christmas stocking.|
I love them!
Now... who makes a loose trombone for 25mm figures?
So I'm still painting and I have a battalion of Napoleonic Prussian fusileers, a regiment of ACW Union Zouaves, some WWII Soviet Naval troops, Byzantine infantry, and Napoleonic French cuirassiers in the line. I guess I have a very short attention span!
