The occasional ramblings of a historical wargamer
Good looking result! Better to switch gears and paint something else if you are feeling a little fatigue. I like your single element BMUs.
Yes I need a change. I have avoided purchasing from overseas in part because of the problem of supply and in part because of uncertainty of employment. All this means that I haven’t ordered any figures since February and have been working on what was intended to be the emergency fall back - the ACW plastics. Although employment is still uncertain snd the supply issue remains...it is time for an order!The jury is still out on the single bases. I guess it will take a game to prove the point.
Nice job Mark, great looking unit!
Thank you Phil.
Good looking troops. Changing gears (periods) usually helps me stay interested. It is supposed to be a hobby, after all. :-0
I usually try to have a few odd bits and bobs from other projects lying about just to get a bit of variety, but its been nothing but ACW since March...don’t get me wrong ACW was my first love, but I long to paint some red, yellow or green...before the paints dry in their pots!
Another nice addition to the ACW collection Mark
Thanks Keith...the end is in sight.
Fatigue after 11 units... I hit the wall around 3 units.Those are great Mark, a nice mix of uniform and colourings.CheersStu
But then again you as talking so someone who painted 48 battalions of Crimean infantry in a little over six months...but at least with that project there was a bit more colour variation.
Another great addition, and there will be nothing like the feeling of satisfaction once you are complete.
Complete...is that a real or fake word?
I think it is real enough, although I recently purchased another 32 Gauls for the Gallic army I completed early last year. That really only makes them more complete, in my mind.
Nicely done Mark...You have certainly raced this project... how soon will you be having a game?All the best. Aly
