January Review

Well that was January then, I kept myself very busy and focussed this month. I set a target of 3 completed models a week…I have beating that, in fact I think it’s the most models I have ever painted in 4 weeks. I also played 6 games of SAGA and managed to win 4 and lose 2 (both losses on the same day!!). Picked up some new rules and figures for Muskets & Tomahawks and squeezed one taster game in last Friday, which I did enjoy, the club campaign kicks off this week so that should be interesting. So below is a list of the completed figures for January;

Norman

Levy x 6, Mounted Hearthguard x 1.

Mutatawwia

Hearthguard Camel & Rider x 2, Hearthguard Horse & Rider x 1, Warrior Bowmen x 5, Hearthguard x 1, Religious Adviser x 1.

Muskets & Tomahawks

French Line Infantry x 4, Indians x 2, French Marine x 1, Coureurs des Bois x 1

So that’s 25 figures in total, quite a good haul really, lets hope I can keep this motivation up.

Muskets & Tomahawks update

Hi,

Been very busy researching, studying rulesets and painting my new Musket and Tomahawk force.

Getting ready for the campaign to kick off in the club and start smashing the Americans and Brits!!

Purchased the French Wilderness Force from Gripping Beast, 20 French Line infantry and an officer from Frontrank Figurines, very impressed with the castings and details are excellent from both companies. Heres a few ipad shots of whats completed so far.

 

Muskets & Tomahawks

Morning all,
We are running a M&T campaign at the club. I have decided to jump on board and play my first campaign. Going for the French 400 point force.

Not actually played the game lol but I like the look of the rules and the figures look great to paint. Especially like the look of the random events that can happen, throws a realistic dimension into the game. Will post up some pics when I get a chance. Anybody played it?
Cheers.

On the workbench this week, SAGA and targets.

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you received some nice new pressies…I got loads more lead.

To keep myself motivated I have set myself a target of at least 3 completed models a week. I know it does not sound a lot, especially when I look at some people’s blogs, they have set targets of 800 plus for the year!! I am currently working on my two SAGA forces, so on the workbench this week is..

Norman – 3 x Levies and 1 x Mounted Hearthguard.

Mutatwwi’a – 1 x Mounted Hearthguard on Camel, 1 x Warrior with Bow and 1 Hearthguard on Foot.

You clever people will have noticed that’s more than 3 there for the week. What I have found is that since I got my painting mojo back I find it easier to stay interested if I have a variety of models on the go at once. I am loving the new Mutatwwi’a warband, never painted a camel and the chance to use bright sunny colours and light washes is making a real change from Anglo Dane stuff, and the models are as usual, high quality casted.

What are you guys working on and have you set any goals?

I hope to get some WIP pictures up this weekend.

 

 

Workbench update..

Hope you all had a great Xmas, I managed to finish 6 Flemish Mercs, planned 8 and 2 Norman Levies, planned 3. So 4 down on target, but  Xmas parties and all lol. Got my new Crescent & Cross Mutatawwia warband yesterday, undercoat on 3 of them today as pic below. Pics from my iPad again so not brilliant but ok for WIP’s. Have a great New Year and a lead full 2015.
