    My desk currently has 15mm Modern Aussies & North Koreans, and 28mm Pulp type figures: a number of bits and pieces I am painting up so I can play my first game of Pulp Alley.

    For me it’s a Forgeworld Death Korps of Krieg banner onto which I have to freehand something. Other than that I got some Hasslefree stuff lying around here. 🙂

    Look, something not 6mm sci-fi in my painting space.

    I thought you were allergic to anything not 6mm sci fi Michael.

    On my painting table I have really been burning through unpainted lead. Have maybe 50 15mm figures waiting for attention; QRF Russians and dinosaurs, Khurasan North Koreans, Rebel Minis zombies, Blue Moon Victorian civilians. A recent transfer at work has seen me have a lot more free time, so getting a lot more painting done. Exciting times.
    Of course, I still have 200 or so 28mm figures waiting patiently for their turn (some of which were bought second hand and so must be stripped) and probably another 100 or so 15s on the way, so never fear, will be back to square one shortly.

    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    Normally I do burst into flames, however these are for a customer and it seems the injection of cash keeps me safe.

    I am currently painting 28mm WSS figures, 15mm Zombies, 10mm moderns and a really bad attempt at trying a Mantic Elf for Kings of War.

    Having not painted any larger figures I painted two as a test run and they really look like crap. So back to the drawing board !

    I have got four absurd Soviet era T-35’s, four SdKfz 251/C’s and one SdKfz 253 in 15mm, Also in 15mm are eight generic biblical hordes and a twelve-man section of Modern Taliban are being painted. Next up are a Soviet SMG company (80 figures) and a Soviet Infantry company in great coats (150+ figures). Arghh, I’ll never be finished. I also have Thracians, Lydians and Spanish ancients to do all in 15’s. Oh, and more Celts/Galatians.

    Cheers and good gaming.

    Kyoteblue:

    Yeah, the Ancients have largely been ignored for the last 10 years or so, so as I am recovering and getting my painting mojo back, I’m seriously planning to get some paint on them. I hear you on the Clod War and Modern stuff too. I have got lots to paint there too.

    Cheers and good gaming.

    Of course before I do that, I have to catch up on reading Just Jack’s posts. Which I am woefully behind on. So much to do and so little time to do it. Oh, speaking about reading, have you read Robert Forczyk’s excellent book called Tank Warfare on the Eastern Front 1941-1942; Schwerpunkt? It’s an outstanding book and I can hardly put it down. It’s a wargamer’s treasure trove of scenario ideas and situations and really explains the strengths and more particularly the weaknesses of both the German and Soviet tank forces. I am looking forward to reading his second book on the same topic from 1943-1945! It’s a great read and is well researched and argued.

    Cheers and good gaming.

    On my painting table….. evidence of a very troubled mind listening to View from the Veranda, I don’t know if the two are connected.

    and what I’m working on besides pushing some green stuff which is at the fore.

    5 battalions of infantry and 5 squadrons of cavalry, the jury is still out if they were line or light infantry, though I think I will base half a battalion as light infantry.

    They were most definitely formed as a petite guerre counter force, in my mind I think they should be able to fight in companies. How is open to debate, fighting as light troops doesn’t define petite guerre but it doesn’t discount the theory that they may have been able to skirmish either. I think it would be very likely that some portion of each company or a company or two would have, light troop ability or they simply would not have been able to execute their formation mandate.

    When I find where I have hidden my copy of Savory I will dig up some references for you, mainly in orders of battle. In July 1760 (significant date)  all 5 battalions were stationed in Soest as part of  von Sporkens command and are listed as part of the “light troops division*”

    *my terminology

    Finally able to paint – Broke My Collarbone in October and then just as I was getting back into action severed the tendons in my right hand… was seriously tempted to have a go at painting with my teeth at one point.

    Recent games have shown up some serious shortages in my Biblical 20mm armies, so I am painting Egyptians, Nubians, Libyans and Sea People – fast and dirty stage painting, a dozen at a time, no frills no fuss/ (ny standard method which allows me to claim ‘ah yes, they are not wonderful paint jobs but I was doing them fast and dirty to get them on the table’ and hope they don’t ask to see stuff I really made an effort on…..)

    I am mostly still painting the Leven Miniatures buildings but took a moment out to start work on a wee sculpt I did.
    Be gentle it is 6mm, and is only my fourth ever go at sculpting.

    I keep my amp under the painting desk, gives it that warm rich valve sound.

    WOW!

     

    So glad to see I am not the only one with a messy paint station. Also thought I was a rare one who has many ongoing projects on the table at the same time. All ranging from 10mm Ancients to 1/285 WW2. My attention span is about as long as that of a gnat. If I am reading up on the Crusades, that is what I will want to work on. If watching a WW2 movie, then that gets pulled onto the table. Therefore, my table is a mish mash of periods. Always thought it was just me. Seeing some of these areas, I see I am not alone.

     

    Just one question for you neatniks. What is wrong with you? How can you be so organized? You are wargamers, for Pete’s sake!
