I'm not dead!
God I'm stressed, life has not been easy recently! My Fiancée and I are less than 2 months away from our wedding now and in the process of moving half way across the country as she has secured a new job in West Sussex. On top of that I am doing final corrections to my thesis which I intend to (finally) hand in next week. Consequently wargaming and painting have been fairly low on the radar this past month. Still I managed to get in a great ACW game with some friends about 3 weeks ago, though I still haven't had time to get the pictures from it onto the PC so that will have to wait till a future update. Do click the pictures to see an enlarged version!
These are all pictures of models I painted a while ago, and indeed I have more completed but alas no time to get them up on the blog at the moment.
This is my attempt at an exploring officer in the mould of Major Hogan from the Sharpe novels. The uniform is wrong of course, but there is not a huge range of choice available in 40mm at the moment, and he is bound for games of Sharp Practice in any case.
These two are intended to be Portuguese militia, though rather well equipped (probably hid their kit when Junot disbanded the Portuguese regular armies). The Shakos are Spanish I suppose but let's not nit-pick!
Right back to work now :(
I am not sure when I will be able to do the next update, what with moving house and all, but I suspect posts will pick up significantly once the current madness is over!
