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.

On the workbench this week….

…will be all SAGA offering of 4 Norman Levies and maybe a Mounted Hearthguard,  Bard, Flemish Warrior unit, like to get the Flemish chaps done for Sundays Club day.

Some shots below from ipad, so not my usual standard. Lets see how many of these I get done, my target is 4 x Levies and 8 x Flemish!! What you guys working on?

Jugula figures

I bought these chaps at Salute this year, played a demo of the game as well and loved it. Painted them fairly quickly as well, the plan was to take it to my club and start a campaign (which is brilliant by the way). However, life got in the way and my mojo for the hobby waned!!! Anyway back on it, thought I would post up some pictures of how they turned out. In fact I did take it to the club and it was well received, so need to get that ball rolling again. Enjoy!

Morning all,

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.

Bolt Action – Brit Infantry section completed

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.
