So the figure is not a Norseman or Germanic Tribesman, nope he is a Briton or perhaps "the" Briton; Merlin. From Footsore Miniatures and to be honest a bugger to paint. Not because of the figure itself; the choice of colours picked just didn't sit well on the first run. The grey of the cloak had too much blue in it against the bone colour used.So, repainted the cloak in Foundry Granite B, a murky grey/green colour. The whole figure was then washed in Army Painter Strong Tone and there you go.More finished figures to follow shortly.Cheers for now.

Where has the time gone? October already, OMFG, how did that happen?30 Days 30 Miniatures Painting Challenge? Struggling this time and only two days left...Finished off Merlin earlier this week. The figure is from Footsore Miniatures and would suit any Dark Ages Shamanic type for that matter.Day 28 - 18 figures completed.Can the time be found to finish off another 12 figures; will give it a go and see what comes of it.Cheers for now
Quick update on this month's 30 Days 30 Miniatures painting challenge:The leader figure for the Spartans in Mortal Gods. The figure is from Footsore Miniature and very nice, however the separate sword hand is small as is the wrist it is attached to. Too small to be pinned, other than that a great figure to paint. Day 25 - 17 figures completedCheers for now
Ive bought a few bits off Charlie Foxtrot and have always had good service and the bits Ive bought have always been nice ,but I ordered a few shieldwall markers off them and I really like these ,even though they are simple designs I suppose ,I will use them in my clash of Empire games you get 8 of the triple shield markers for £1.75 a real bargain .in front of some Artisan,Gripping Beast and Footsore Vikingsa good size ,thick enough to pick up easily and tough enough to last
A quick snapshot of the painting desk as a few items have moved over to finishing line.More on the finished items shortly.Cheers for now
The notion that a clean desk means a productive worker is an artifact of the mid-20th century. ... Mark Twain, for example, chose to leave his desk cluttered whenever he was photographed: Albert Einstein famously pointed out that "If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?"Eeny, meeny, miny, moe? Which way I willI go?Perhaps only the fates will know?Or is all of this just for show?Drawn in too many directions on the painting table; time for a more focussed approach.Cheers for now.
