As in bits of this n bits of that. Work continues on the Mamalukes. The new basing material ordered have just turned up so i will be able to finish them this week now. I have however completed a little vignette piece for Curt's Painting challenge. One of the categories is for Best female. I was given this little set which apparently was a give away at Partizan a few years ago sculpted by Matt Bickley . Not sure of the title of it, but I havecalled it "The perils of Pauline" after the old black & white films. A couple of great figures to paint. I now just need to find the dashing hero figure to rescue her!
In addition I have been to the York show "Vapnartark" . The first show attended in many years. Nice to see figures in the flesh as it were and i did of course succumb to adding to lead mountain.
Additions to the lead pile - all just because i really liked the look of them , and will be fun to paint.:-
Trent miniatures - Napoleon as first consul, and General Lecourbe.
Great War miniatures - Crimean War - British Lancers charging
Artizan Designs - Foreign Legionnaires in Kepi
Crusader miniatures - Vikings
Mutineer Miniatures - Indian Mutiny - British command set
The first major order for the Mahdist forces has also arrived - I now have 480 Foot figures , and 25 Mounted to complete - that should look impressive once done.
