In a comment on Alan’s entry on painting his Saxons, Phil mentioned what he has been painting lately. Recognising (and stealing) a fun idea when I see one, here’s what’s on my painting table:
- 28mm Celts - Old Glory and Foundry. These are for my WAB army to be used in our upcoming escalation campaign (on which details will follow later on the club website ).
- 28mm Sub Roman British archers - Old Glory. Just the one remaining out of a unit of ten. These are to complete my other (virtually finished) WAB army.
- 28mm Old West - Foundry, from when they were still the schizoid nephews Guernsey and Wargames Foundry. What can I say? Just the buzz surrounding Legends of the Old West inspired me to dig some of them out of the Mountain of Lead in the cellar.
- 15mm dwarves - Essex. The abortive attempt for a second HoTT day put these on my painting table.
- 28mm Boxer Rebellion - Old Glory. I’m painting these for Phil, as a leftover of my short attempt at a painting service.
- 28mm Darkest Africa askari - Foundry. They moved on my painting table in preparation for the Exploring the Congo game, and still haven’t left.
As you can see, I tend to subscribe to Phil’s current opinion that variety is the spice of painting. I agree with him that not painting for projects that have to be finished quickly is much more agreeable than the hithertofore more usual deadline pushing painting marathons.
You can look at photographs of most of the finished versions of these miniatures on my Flickr photostream, the five most recent of which also show up in the sidebar.
Perhaps people can comment on this entry with their ‘Currently painting’ lists? If this catches on, I might make this a monthly recurring entry in its own category (all the easier to generate content that way :) ).
