    28mm Perry plastic French Hussars – just 8 of them. I had been dreading these, with all the lace. It turns out the lace is not such a big deal, it is just the wide range of colours and details that need painting that are not so much skill based, but rather time based.

    20 x Perry 28mm Duchy of Warsaw have marched off to the basing department.

    Academy do a 1/72 plastic kit set containing a jeep, kubelwagen and a Kettenkrad. These are pretty quick to build. It is the latter that has caught my eye and I am making it up for a small vignette, with some fuel drums and ammo crates, suggesting a forward supply stash.

    Thats why they invented dry brushing Norm- light brush strokes, gradually darken the lace to provide the contrast of colours. Not that hard really…

    A bunch of Vikings, mostly Victrix, just needing a coat of varnish to seal them off. Intended mainly for WAB, but will work for whatever system is needed.

    This weekend is the midpoint of two extremely long workweeks punctuated by about 5000 miles of business travel. But I have the weekend off and I plan to paint… once I get an air conditioner in my studio, because damn.

    This weekend I have been induced by a friend at my club to paint an “actual” Legions Imperialis force at 8mm scale, by him providing it to me. I got some lovely Vanguard warstalkers to act as my Titans, so I’m ready to go there. I also picked up a lovely set of the new 3mm scale Undead army from Microworld and they are on the table too. I need the quiet contemplation of a weekend of painting and audiobooks before I jet off again on Monday at the crack of dawn.

    Palette Painting since 1977

    In an annoyingly simple exercise, after last weeks frustration of computer/ net ills, here’s all thats happened, or not, a record of an artifact palette probably begun in 1977 in Christchurch, and in semi-continuous use, or storage, in Auckland, ever since.

    The primary (not Primary) colours of black, white  and red have been shaved down a few times so the contours largely mimic a volcanic landscape. The base is a random left over piece of ‘solid core fibre’ cardboard- a long in the tooth complex product of the prolific paper industry (ie wood products).

    That’s several generations of paint, with defiant Humbrols on the bottom, and from the mid-eighties a series of Polly-S, Tamiya (a little) and HobbyLobby acrylics (bought in LA in 2002- my last overseas jaunt.

    Bottom of the palette is the home made turquoise from Jonathan G.s description for Russian Jaeger.
    I hope to do a little painting again soon, with the computer woes behind us… cheers

    from a chilly Winter!
