OK so I’ll start by saying, I hope you are all well and safely ensconced in your domiciles around the world. Maybe it’s just me but every time they show deserted city centres around the country on the news I keep thinking “Wouldn’t it be a great time to film Dr Who invasion sequences”.
Anyway as I mentioned at the end of my last post I have been thinking of digging out some of my figures and paintbrushes to help alleviate the boredom (in the case of my camera I literally did have to dig it out from under the stairs!!), and so though I haven’t actually started painting anything yet I have chosen a few things to get me back on the horse so to speak…
Now I have been giving some thought as to coming back into the wargaming fold as it were and what I’d like to do if I did. Well this may come as a bit of surprise and possibly sacrilege for a few of you, but I think if I do start painting again on a regular basis then I will probably go predominantly 15 and 10mm scales mainly because it’s a) cheaper and b) you can get a lot more done in a shorter timeframe (less detail, hooray!). So it is to this end that I have decided to dig out my 42mm “Dan Dare” figures as a first project (what!!! No I don’t really understand it either!), they are by Irregular Miniatures though so not too heavily loaded down with detail.
Lastly I have these three 28mm ladies by Tin Man Miniatures, These I actually started eighteen months ago before I went AWOL, so I hope to be able to finish these off as well. I have no idea as to a time frame to get them done, it will be very much as and when, and I’ll post when I have something to show you, or something interesting to say (wouldn’t hold my breath on that last one, if I were you!).
You would not believe how nervous I am about this, as I haven’t touched a paint brush (not a little one anyway) for a year and a half! But hey if they turn out crap at least we can all have a laugh.
So till then, cheers Roger.
