Analogue Painting Challenge Week Two and New Shiny Through the Post

More good progress on the figure painting front and I continue to paint above my target but how long that will continue I don't know. I have not painted at all in the last two days though but hope to fix that this afternoon. 

I managed to finish two entries this week, the Prussians in time for Tuesday and forty eight 15mm Romans that will be presented on Tuesday. I should also get my bonus round figures also finished by then and be well on my way with figures from a new project but these won't make the deadline.

I got the trees over a week ago, the light green ons may need a little toning down whilst the darker ones are the same as the originals. Really happy with the service and price, got to get the more round ones next.

I also got myself a few Baccus figures. The last three new French Napoleonic cavalry just one unit of each so I can paint them up so I have all the new French, see what I do for you guys?

I also got some Ancient command figures and peltasts that will allow me to work on a number of bases for the Hail Caesar side project that I hope to drag either Lee or Matt into.

  3. My hat goes off to you Ian as I cannot believe the output that you and other are producing for this. In fact you produce more stuff is a couple of week than I produce all year. I have to get some of those trees.

    1. A slight exaggeration I think Pete, besides your quality trumps my production :-)

  5. Hi Ian - I'm just starting my 6mm terrain collection for my new ECW project.
    I'm really interested in how your trees came out - any recommendations?
