In a few weeks I’ll be participating in a 650 point weekday Bolt Action tournament at Huzzah Hobbies, my FLGS. The theme is Early War and as I’ll be running my French I dug them out for a few photos, including my newly completed Motorized Infantry squad. The regular infantry and cavalry are from Crusader, the MMG Team, Somua S35 and 75mm are from Warlord, the Panhard P178 is from Army Group North and the Motorized Troops are from Battle Honors..
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?
Not much has changed since my last update…except for the addition of Jugula and some more lead!!
Jugula – 8 Figures purchased at Salute, 6 painted and 2 undercoated, 8 games played and loving it. Saga – 6 point Anglo Dane – 22 figures nearly done so over halfway! Still to undercoat 2 x Flemish Warriors, Hereward the Wake, 4 x Double Handed Axe Hearthguards, Bard and Sons of Death. Bolt Action – 3 more units of British Infantry, Command Unit and Churchill Tank is assembled. Warhammer 40K – Approx half way through the huge Riptide. Hail Caesar – 100ish Figures to complete on the starter army.
Still need to get round to a morning of photography for the blog and that’s about it….thank god!! The variety keeps me interested lol. I will try my best to post up some pictures in the next week or so….lucky rolling.
Well at last after a weeks delay I have managed to finish and take a few photographs of the completed 8 man unit.
I have really enjoyed painting and basing these. I decide to up the basing detail after I completed my Vickers team, that turned out really well with the flowers and bits on it. After a few trials on old bases I got the look about right. Hope you like them.

Sorry for no updates lately, just had a few days away with the wife and a few family things getting in the way, lol.
However, my plan is to post up some more pics this weekend, also got some new bits to start on that arrived today and have a game of Saga planned for Friday, like the look of this game and the way it plays.
