I have, however, managed to get a few pieces off the painting table this week.
This is a 28mm figure from Reaper Miniatures Deadland Noir collection and was sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
A gentleman from Lead Adventures Forum requested that I paint up a Fantasy piece for him. I agreed, but only if I had final say on the figure. This is a 28mm heroic scale from Tale of War and was sculpted by Simon Remis.
This little gal was sent to me by Clint last year. It was a figure he got at Salute and although she doesn't look that complicated, I've had to strip the paint from her twice to get her completed.
She reminds me of myself when I was a little girl.
For quite some time now I've been knocking about the idea of painting some WWII figures. Finally, I have given in and made a few purchases. These are British Forward Observation Officers from Bolt Action. They have plenty of detail, loads of character and should be fun to paint up.
I have also purchased from Perry Miniatures, Vickers machine gun and four crew. As one would expect, I am quite pleased with the figures and look forward to working on them. I'm also quite keen to paint up some German Afrika Corp figures and vehicles. Now, I do not plan on making a switch to painting all historical figures. Rather I would like to add them to what I already do.
As my Jazz Quartet is nearly finished, they will be the first figures I post when I return,. I also have some Hasslefree figures that are nearly done and will complete those. Shortly after that, the WWII figures will be posted.
I hope all of you enjoy your summer as I intend to enjoy mine. I may wander in from time to time and say hello. But for now, I shall say farewell.
