Workbench 27/3

Well as reported last update my wonderful daughter got married on Saturday
A great day and my love and wishes to John and Helen on their future together.
Since then I've been playing catch up, pre.orders for Salute, Order writing for a campaign game etc.
The bench currently looks like -

I didn't get the French finished but hopefully this week.
The second picture also shows some 6mm (nearer 8) MDF Napoleonic Infantry - not finished but with 100 figures for £2 they're worth a try, available from Commission figurines, the etched detail is pretty good so I will see what they're like when finished and based en masse (mad or what!!!)

Finally some more shots of the Forged in Battle Ancient Indians - about to receive another good drubbing at the club last night - perseverance is whats called for ( and some decent dice throws!!!)

Workbench Full again - 12/03/2015

After last weeks worry that gaps had started to appear on the paint table its been a busy week, both form the domestic front - knocking walls down etc. and the gaming/painting side.
DBA3 - Big Battle is proving popular at the local club and having finished the Indian army which is constantly been beaten up by Macedonians I have started work on my Macedonians.
On the bench you will see some more of the Forged in Battle/West Wind ancients.

Also there are more 15mm Ansar for the Sands in the Sudan and I have managed to finish the first half of the French Tournaisis Regiment, the second half are undercoated and the flags are on the way from Maverick Models .

My daughter gets married a week on Saturday but I still hope to get the rest of the French finished. Then it will be heads down getting ready for Salute - so lots more 18th century painting:)

Work Bench Thursday 05/03/2015

Sorry there was no update last week, I was busy wandering around the Highlands of Scotland amidst frequent snow showers but it was all pretty damn good.

Managed to finish The Manchester Regiment and Albermarle so progress is going forward on the Jacobite project.

As to the workbench -

I've decided to paint up a unit of French Infantry (not certain which regiment yet) so the first half are busy drying on their sticks!
More Ansar infantry are waiting for bases to be painted and another unit off picture are waiting to be started.
Westwind/Forged In Battle Ancient Greeks underway for the Macedonian army and a few other pieces floating around - waiting for progress to be made.
Still back to normal now so big push over the next week.
