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.

 

Gripping Beast Mutatawwia WIP update

Morning all,
Well really been cracking on with these figures. Got a 4 point force for Xmas (thanks family!).
As I write this I have nearly 11 figures complete of 21, really enjoying painting these as I have mentioned in a previous post, its make a change using brighter colours and lighter shading/blending than my Anglo Dane chaps.
Sculpts are fist class, the fine detail on the faces is superb and there is very minimal clean up required (as usual with Gripping Beast). As I write this I have more figures on the way to make up a 6 point and a priest. In addition the official forum reckons that Naffatan mercs are very useful, so have got 4 of those coming as well.

Few pictures from my ipad..

 

 

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.

 

 

This weekend..and future plans

I plan to get the first images of my Anglo Dane army up on here this weekend and shots of my Norman test figure.

Only have 4 figures left to finish of the Anglo Dane guys, then it’s onto the Norman 4 point.

As I have mentioned before, I am not allowing myself to start the new Crescent & Cross Mutatawwi’a 4 point (which I have just ordered for Xmas, thanks wife) until all the Normans are done!

Whats your plans for the next few weeks?

Workbench this week

Hi all,

I have a number of projects to work on this week..

All SAGA figures, 10 more to finish my 6 point Anglo Dane force and then all of a 4 point Norman force. Have done a test model of the Normans and was very pleased with it.

My goal this month is to finish all the above before my new Crescent & Cross figures arrive on Xmas day…I hope. I have gone for the Mutatawwi’a Starter Warband (image below),  I fancy painting a Camel.
