Started on the next group of Confederate infantry for Fire and Fury and the like.Additions to the growing Confederate force are coming on at a steady rate with artillery and cavalry planned for the future.Cheers for now.
The last of the Confederate Infantry recently completed in previous 30 Days 30 Miniatures Painting Challenges.The figures are from Old Glory and this time in firing line.More from this range later in the year or early next year.Cheers for now.
Confederate infantry advancing from Old Glory. The command stand was painted earlier this year. The other five bases were painted during the first 30 days 30 Miniatures Painting Challenge or was it the second.The Old Glory figures have great character amd paint up well. There will be more of these sooner and later.Cheers for now.
Yesterday was the last day of the current 30 Days 30 Miniatures Painting Challenge; which earlier this week looked like it was not going to happen.A last push at the finish line made the following possible:First up are Confederates from Old Glory. These 15mm figures are animated and characterful; just what you need for charging the Union lines.Next, an old mid nineties skeleton from Citadel or Marauder Miniatures. A great figure to paint, perfect for finishing off a painting challenge.Completed this challenge:Day 30 - 34 figures completed.Cheers for now

The next 30 day challenge will start this evening.Cheers for now.
This month's 30 Days 30 Miniatures painting challenge finished late last night with these figures being completed in time.Included in this picture there are Arabs from A & M, Confederates from Old Glory and the last of the Foundry Vikings that have been getting painted for a fellow gamer recently.This takes the total tally for this challenge to:30 days - 32 figures painted.Group shot to follow shortly.Cheers for now
Not been so good with the regular updates in this 30 days 30 miniatures challenge; however have still been painting steadily away.A wide range of figures including Foundry Vikings, Gorgon Miniatures Spartans, Gripping Beast Numidians and Old Glory Confederates.Day 29 - 23 figures painted. Last session tonight to finish off another Viking, some Confederates and a Moor or two. Cheers for now.
Painted in 2018 and finally based and ready for action in 2019 these casualty stands and command stand are from Friekorps and Old Glory's Blue Moon range.Needing to go back to using the main camera rather than the phone cam, however its a time thing and everything can be done on the device. Time can be daunting just now.Some what more daunting is the twenty odd stands of foot at the back of the painting desk. Will get there soon.Cheers for now.
The Ninth Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge...Every where was quiet and all over the blogosphere hands were as busy as elves preparing the Little Lead Men for the challenge.Some of the Little Lead Men were very very little whilst others were a bit bigger but they were all shiny in the beginning. That is of course until the busy hands used the big grey and black spray clouds and covered their shiny cores up.Soon the grey and black sprayed Little Lead Men would be brightly coloured with glorious colours so they would shine once again.As the days lengthen after the winter Solstice follow the progress of the Little Lead Men as they follow in the footsteps of the first Little Lead Man recoloured after a long time in the darkness.The question is; which one will be first?Cheers for now
This challenge was indeed that with mixed motiviation for the hobby in general this past 5 - 6 weeks.The final challenge came this week with being away with no internet access or 4G. The feeling of isolation lasted for about an evening then the digital detox started. Recommend it to all - disconnect for a week it is rewarding. It also meant however that this post is late, the shame!So, back to the challenge and yes it was a success with more than thirty figures being completed in time, just mind you.Two 28mm figures for SAGA or any Dark Ages skirmish game in general. A Gripping Beast Viking on the left and a Foundry Norman on the right.A Macedonian phalanx in 6mm with 27 figures on a 40 x 30mm.A mix of stands for ACW gaming with figures from Freikorps (centre) and Old Glory on the outsides. The single figures are for break through markers and the others are casualty markers.Here is the group shot of everything together; 37 figures in total including the terrain piece.6mm: 27 infantry15mm: 7 infantry28mm: 2 in
Another batch of Old Glory 15mm ACW Confederates, march attack in greatcoats....I really like these figures.The Fire and Fury bases have been ordered so I will hopefully be putting them all together when I get home
Sorry for the poor pictures but these are the latest Old Glory Confederates for my Regimental Fire and Fury non-project.....Good news is I have bought myself a second hand copy of the rule book and look forward to reading it.I painted these whilst watching the film 'Gods and Generals', great inspiration!
