Climbing that mountain of lead
That's 2 dozen WWII era Soviet soldiers from Artizan Design done and varnished.
There are 4 left to do, but I've run out of bases and won't be ordering any more until in the new year.
I'm also more or less done with painting pulp figures until at least next Spring, since there's no longer any urgent need to complete them.
Well today I threw a mini in the bin, actually I threw it against the painting shed door first (And it left a dent!).
It was a WWII German motorcycle rider from Foundry and I just could not get the stinking handlebars to stick to the bike.
I'd managed to do it with the first 2, but the 3 was too much.
This is only the 3rd time I've ever given up on a mini ever. :(
That's right, 2 painting blogs... in a month.
Today I just varnished 15 German soldiers that I've been painting throughout January. Now ready for The Indiana Jones Charity Globe Trot.
Yes I know it's now 2020.
And yes, it's taken nearly a year to prepare to write the next post for this blog.
But I have been doing some painting during all this time... honest...
So I'm going to try post photos I took of the miniatures I painted from February to December!
13th November 2019
These figures were photographed on the 13th November 2019.
These are the first of the 'pulp' figures for my GameBlast20 game - The Indiana Jones Charity Globe Trot.
14th December 2019
These are Thuggee cultists from Pulp Figures. Again they're for The Indiana Jones Charity Globe Trot.
I've painted some of them in the yellow and white scheme I saw on the Pulp Figures website. The others are painted in red and black as seen in 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom'.
3rd January 2020
The mine carts and track all come from Ainsty Castings.
8 of the mine carts were painted for GameBlast19 (Which was before the end of February 2019.), they've only just been varnished.
The track has all been painted and varnished recently.
There you have it. That's all the photo's I have.
I've painted more than (I must have!?!) this over 2019, it's just there's no photos of them, honest... You'll have to take my word for it!
Hopefully, the blog will see some use over 2020.
