Actually, I should qualify the last statement in the previous post.
The Brits are coming.......... eventually.
As will no doubt be garnered if these ramblings continue is that I am not the quickest painter of figures in the world (as testified by the 30 odd years it took to complete the unit of Red Orcs below).
Which is a source of frustration as well as tho I am not a completely rubbish painter (and I say that humbly and with the knowledge that others have praised my painting) neither am I anywhere as good as our Mr Dave Tulloch who even on 10mm can produce exquisitely painted figures. I'm sort of, well, average, and with that and the time it takes me to produce anything can be quite depressing bearing in mind the stacks of unpainted lead and plastic that are stacked in the various cupboards of my wargames room.
The aforementioned Brits arrived last Wednesday and the 4 stands shown in the previous post are that all that have been finished so far with another 13 infantry, 3 bren carriers, M3 half track and a White Scout car in various stages of completion. Gordon would have painted a whole armoured battalion in the same time but ho hum, guess I'll just have to soldier on (if you pardon the pun) doing what I'm doing
