Paint Table Saturday#18


Progress continues to be made, albeit painfully slowly.  All the composite parts for the final bonus round, aptly titled, 'Last Stand' are complete and whilst perhaps not as grand as I had hoped it will see me complete for of my personal targets of entering something for each of the these themed rounds.  The  2nd Punjab Cavalry have had their mounts painted, but still an awful lot of work to be done.  The Matabele warriors are still proving a bane insomuch as I just don't seem to be able to drum up the enthusiasm to get them finished.  

With 'The Fourth Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge' entering its final fortnight, I have just realised, somewhat alarmingly, that I will lose a day's painting next Saturday due to work.  The plan, so that it is,  will be to try and complete all those units started, but just in case I have a purple patch of production, I have promoted some Imperial Infantry to the painting table.

  4. I have the same issue with Zulus. You imagine they will be quick to paint and actually a disproportionate time is spent on things like shields (they take me ages) and spotted cat fur decorations etc.

  5. Very organized painting area and projects, Michael. Your quality and output are also impressive. I like that paint bottle holder - I use Vallejo too, and always worry about the paint settling separating. Looking for to the "Last Stand," Dean

    1. Thank you Dean, I'm trying out storing the colours upside down after it was suggested to me that this helps to keep the colours mixed - seems to be working so far.

  6. Have the Punjabi cavalry conclaved and sent you their uniform requirements?
    Looking forward to seeing you and Edwin K both do that Gordon vignette. Double the fun, double the Gordons.

    1. I'll have to do something to make mine different - perhaps giving Gordo a Hodgkiss...

    2. You can never have enough Gordons. Or Burnabys for that matter!

    3. Yes, the Punjabis have decided on a rather fetching scarlet for their alkalak, and a Double Gordons - thank you very much Sir!
