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!

Project Kursk : the scenic view

It's not all tanks and weaponry. A game of this scale (150 1:56 vehicles in case you'd missed that bit....)  needs a fair bit of table covering too. 

I've had one of the hamlets from warlord games  awaiting some attention for a while now, and it wouldn't be right to have this mega game without putting it to use, so the buildings have seen a swift brush. 

They will receive basing after the game, as I don't want to get them mixed up with the guildford games club ones, which I painted exactly the same and are already based! 

The plan for this weekend had been to work on some of my Vehicles from the Winter War kickstarter, which I had meant to pick up at warfare a few weeks back. However, that didn't happen and I'm finding myself in the same boat as a lot of other WW backers, awaiting miniatures which I was led to believe would already be with me. I have upmost confidence in Gav of Baker Company that I'll get my product, but it is rather frustrating. It now looks like I might be somewhat short of my previously posted armour list, as 20 vehicles haven't even arrived yet! 

14 days to go..... Just one weekend..... Fingers crossed!
