Christmas Painting; Scary Snowmen

More silliness :) These were presented to my Mum in the place of the usual Christmas cards. She was quite pleased at her "unorthodox cards" :) More pics and all the gumph can be seen and read on my Just Add Water Blog here: http://justaddwater-bedford.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/christmas-painting-scary-...

Christmas Painting; Inspector Poirot and Miss Marple

Christmas Painting; Truce

This piece was part of the Steve Dean Form Painting Swap where names are drawn from a hat, presently by me, miniatures are then swapped with a partner who paints up the mini for you. In this event Angel aka ONIRIA, his forum name, wanted me to choose something for him and I decided to go for what I ...

Re: Ravenna- Gaston de Foix Vignette Composition 29.12.15

I've recently been messing around with the composition for Gason de Foix, Count of Nemours (leader of the French forces during the War of the League of Cambrai) vignette. If you're interested please pop over to my Gewalthaufen Blog for discussion on the options that I'm as yet undecided upon: http:/...

Re: Santa's Loot- Show Us Yours!

I'm looking forward to seeing your renessanse figures, your dark age stuff is amazing. It'll be a little while... I've got a Hastings demo to complete for Salute first! I am working on a few conversions for about an hour a day- just to keep my eye in and well, you've got to fondle the new shiny toy...

Beyond the call of duty! Unless of course Santa was a disappointment! :)

Santa's Loot- Show Us Yours!

Santa was very kind and provided a large part of the miniatures that I will be using for the Ravenna Demo game (2017!).

Ravenna- Gaston de Foix Vignette Composition 29.12.15

I'm aiming to have the Battle of Ravenna done as a demo game, probably not this year but the next. I'm too busy with my Hastings project for Salute at present. I'm spending a little bit of time every day working on head swaps, conversions and that sort of thing. In order to keep up some kind of mome...

Haggis Rampant Campaign: Blood Fued!

So, my second game in the campaign that has already produced much guffawing by all was played Thursday gone at the club and proved to be just as amusing as the last game. I was paired up with Mike at half-ish retinue strength each against Nige and his English with their Death Ray Archers... erm, I m...
