News, Updates & ramblings

This Blog is acting as the news and updates page for my new website,

The website itself is the archive of my painting through the last decade or more, with easy navigation around what now amounts to over 3000 images of wargames figures & display miniatures.

It is also the repository for my musings, workbench notes and reports on all things gaming and miniature painting that I get up to.

I've been collecting miniatures for 24 years and have covered most scales, periods and styles in that time. Don't expect consistency on one project here - there will be variety in project, but hopefully consistently high standards!

Thanks for reading!

Painting New, Uploading old...

I'm afraid its all old stuff again this week, as I work my way through the thousands of miniatures I've painted in years gone by and work out which of the photos I deem reasonable enough for public viewing!

I am still painting a mixture of my own projects and a couple of small commissions, but I've not managed to get anythign in front of the camera for a month or so. Thus, I do hope that variety will make up for the lack of any new brush work for the time being!

Whats New?
Following up from the MotoStrelkovy last time around, this time its the Soviet FoW Tankovy Gallery - 22 pictures
And a very small German Commission - 4 pictures
Black Tree Designs Fantasy Gallery - 6 pictures
6mm Goblin Gallery - 15 pictures (you gotta start somewhere...)
6mm amazon gallery - 14 pictures (ditto!)
And, just because we're missing the sci-fi element so far this week, a VOID gallery to finish off - 27 pictures

Todays totals:
New Galleries - 6
New Images - 88

Snow is here, and so are the updates!

Its been snowing here in Surrey, UK, and that means everything stops working in England. Including me! Not by choice, but there isn't much one can do on a roof under 6 inches of snow!

So, I've been uploading pictures and creating galleries for a couple of hours & there's plenty more to come!

So, what's new?
General galleries:
First up a gallery that actually contains some relatively new models!
SoW Objectives gallery - 16 pictures

And then lots of old projects to fill in a few of the many gaps still to go...

15mm Dwarf army 2 - just 6 pictures :(
Warhammer Empire Army - 24 pictures

The Flames of war section finally opens, and with a bang!
Small british Commission - 8 pictures
DAK Army Commission - 27 pictures
and the Flames of War Objectives Gallery - 11 images.

Totals for the day -
New Gallery count: 6
Picture Count: 92 :)

And at this rate - more tomorrow!
