Not to step on anyone's toes I have been on the quite painting figures up for pals. The idea is that I simply paint them for them and if they like they give me some figures back. Recently I did the SYW Imagination stuff for Andy at Another Slight Diversion in exchange for a Spanish Hill Town. Well another mate has given me this little lot.
So two 6mm Armies, Some Franco Prussian and three Salute Door Figures. Now these are not to paint, well not for him anyway. No with the other hand he gave me a load of 6mm SYW and Zulu and a bunch of 15mm ECW. So in one fell swoop I have enough to keep me occupied for a few weeks. The plan is to start work on my friends figures and insert some of mine from this stash, that way I will always be ahead of the game. Of course I still want to be getting on with all the other stuff I already have, these being mostly the 6mm Naps, 6mm ECW and 15mm Ancients. I am sure I won't be keeping the Confederate Baccus army but I am strangely drawn to the Anglo-Saxon one. Really not sure about the Prussian Army though I am looking forward to painting them.
Right now though I have a date with eight Italian regiments for my Peninsular Army. I hope to get these finished before the weekend and then get some test bases done from the 6mm I have agreed to paint. I can see the challenge points racking up.
