After a coupe of weeks off from the brushes it’s back to it now. First up off the production line is a casualty ,stretcher bearers and medic set from Full Metal Miniatures . Pretty good figures to paint , and provides a nice vignettes piece , and something useful for scenarios.
Picking up those brushes again.
I will use the blog to record my creations & the odd occasion I actually do some gaming.
I have always been inspired by the aesthetic side of gaming. Playing on well constructed terrain using excellently painted units is always a joy.

You may have seen some trailers or clips from this HBO documentary series by Oscar winning director Raoul Peck . You will find a few minutes of film in episode 3 , from 7 minutes in of the Sudan collection recreating parts if the battle of Omdurman. Myself , Martin and James spent 3 days in Paris in 2019 where we set it up and worked with the crew , cinematographer and director to create the scenes they wanted . 3 days had been distilled into about 3 minutes of footage. It was a real insight into the work that goes on making film/TV shows.
Here’s a few stills
Work in hand
No more than 3 things on the PAINTING table at once. Nothing new added until something is finished.
PREPARATION work is done when I don't fancy detail painting. Cleaning up, converting, undercoating etc.
PLANNING is expressions of interest or things that have inspired me to be created with no definite timescale as yet.
