  1. This hasn’t been a particularly good month for painting. I had a week off back on the 9th, but, as shown here, my desk had gotten too cluttered to actually get much painting done. I’m also off this week, and decided that I would try just putting one task on the desk at a time, to see if that would help. My son has been diligently working on his Bronze Age DBA armies, so I decided that I would finally get started on the last stand of figures I needed to finish my 2nd DBA army. (DBA : De Bellis Antiquitatis, a popular set of ancient wargames rules for small figure collections to be played on
  2. You know what sort of year it’s been when you think to yourself that you played a game “recently”, only to find that it was last October. So, in a “recent” game of Dragon Rampant, I was using a scenario from the related game Lion Rampant which called for three “wagon” markers for one side to be escorting. I had two 1/72 scale plastic wagons or carts at the time, so I threw in a noblewoman (an old Airfix mounted Maid Marion figure) as a third element to be escorted. Afterward, I pulled some farm animals out of the plastics collection and decide to add some flock/herd bases to the baggage
  3. I am not sure where to put this topic, so I have thrown it in general fantasy. My hobby goals for this month include painting some 1/72 scale plastics for what I call the Portable Fantasy Game. I am considering the question of what the shape of this project should be, because, like a lot of the things I do, it has mostly grown organically so far. To assist in planning, last week I unpacked the boxes and arrayed all the single-based figures for a photo inventory. I won’t add the small group closeups, but here is the overview: As of then, I ha
  4. Ok, gang, I’ll be honest. I shouldn’t post this now without all the well written explanation of what I’m about here, but it isn’t coming and I would like to get this posted... Earlier this year, in the before times, I did another of these stands. These are for a Hordes of the Things elvish army (primarily) and are expected to be “beast” stands — rapidly moving, at home in rough terrain. This was a speed paint; all three figures took an hour. With the 1/72s, I like to paint a little more than is necessary, for my own amusement. Here’s a clos
  5. A little expedient painting...I am still trying to finish my 12-stand De Bellis Antiquitatis (DBA) army of 13th century BC Libyans, and they get a stand of mercenary Sea Peoples blades. So, here it is. As with the other Libyan stands, the figures are drawn from a Caesar Miniatures box set of ~40 figures in 12 poses, of which we have great store.
  6. The next piece of my DBA 3.0 Bronze Age Libyan army has ben varnished and is ready for battle...as soon as 5 more stands of things get painted.
  7. I finished this troop of Libyans over a couple of lunches last week, but it took until today to have time to finalize the bases. These will be skirmisher (psiloi) stands for a 12-stand De Bellis Antiquitatis army to oppose my New Kingdom Egyptians. I need to magnetize a new storage box, since the Bronze Age project has now overflowed the first 4-liter Really Useful Box.
  8. I had a fair amount of time to sit and paint yesterday, and I have been working recently on my portable fantasy game project. So, the muse decided to inspire me to do more. (I don’t like to argue with the muse, lest she depart unappreciated...) The two single figures are from an oldish Italeri Crusaders set. If the shields look rough, it’s probably because I needed to carve off the molded design to start. I need to increase my speed on horse painting, so I ended up finishing off the trio stand of Strelets knights, and was reminded how difficult Strelets is to work with. I will
  9. I started off last week to paint a few 1/72 scale plastics for my portable set. KISS, brighter colors, etc. Next step: use them in a game.
  10. I had a quiet enough lunch break yesterday that I pulled out some paint and pending miniatures. I had finished up a single figure on the stick last week, and the rest had just gotten a preliminary splash of skin: So, forty minutes or so later it was time to clean up, and this is where I was: The figure on the left (a random courtier as one of my sons described him) was still waiting for a coat of brush-on varnish to dry. After drying: These figures are miscellaneous 1/72 scale plastics that are
  11. My goal in the Thanksgiving painting binge is to finish the last six 25mm home cast Saxons I need to deploy a war game army, to finish a dozen or so 1/72 plastic Vikings needed to deploy a different wargame army, and to start some momentum on a project to do a set of inter-related Middle Earth warbands for Dragon Rampant, to be done with vintage Minifigs from the early to mid-70s. For those who might not have heard this before, these figures were the first commercial fantasy figures produced, and therefore reach back to the dawn of time for the hobby of fantasy gaming. http://www.
