A productive Saturday.

Good evening.

Well, today was a very productive day for me as I got to sit down early and paint and build until early evening.

Below are the spoils of the day.

First off we have two 15mm Havelock battle suits from the Ion age. These were a Christmas gift from a friend. I was very happy to receive them. I had been wanting to add these to my Ion Age collection.
I did not put any of the many weapons on them yet, but I wanted to show them off. I have them painted up in the colors of the Prydian army and the Yordists (green &yellow) -- these are the two that will be fighting on the table as soon as I can find the time.

Second is the INQ28 I have put together. These are a ragtag bunch who are intent on bringing down chaos. I was inspired to put them together by a friend of mine whose blog reminded me how  refreshing it can be to take bits and bobs and come up with something new.  One day they may be able to take on the chaos that is brought into the universe.

Third is the Space Wolves I have been trying to get done for years. This is the first Blood Claw pack out of the five that have been sitting about waiting for paint. I was inspired by Eve Hallow's Grey Ghosts to get the wolves done. It has been a bit of a challenge to get them done, I wanted to go with the old 2nd-edition paint scheme.

Fourth is a Glorious Revolution-era project a friend and I are working on together. These figures are the start of a big build and paint project. Here are shown some of the cavalry and artillery I have built, many more to go on this. This project is very exciting to me as I like the musket era, plus the uniforms are fun for me to paint.

Hope you enjoyed seeing what I am working on.

Hello 1st blog post

Hello all,

Welcome to my first blog post.

I have been roleplaying for around 35 years and miniature gaming for around 15 years. I have been painting miniatures for the last 35 years when miniatures were made of lead - which explains a lot.

I started off playing Games Workshop games and moved on from there. These days I mostly play Alternative  Armies games (Flintloque and Slaughterloo, fantasy Napoleanic, plus their other games) with a smattering of  independents mixed in.

With this blog I will be posting works in progress and reporting on things I am working on. I will try to post game photos as well when I can.

Hope you all enjoy.
