New Project and some Pictures

Having been envious for some time of the fantastic collections being built up by people using Pendraken’s fabulous new (relatively now) 10mm American War of Independence ranges, Matt and I have finally taken the plunge this year and begun to gather some forces. Recognizing that I can’t take on another large project of painting and expect to be finished any time soon, we’ve taken the step of commissioning AndyMac to do the majority of the painting. Andy’s painting is disturbingly, soul crushingly good and when he sends pictures like the ones below and tells you that the figures look even better in the flesh, you know it’s money well spent.

However, I can’t resist painting at least some of the figures, so here are some Hessian Jaegers painted by me. They’re still waiting for a blast of varnish, but given the appalling weather at the moment I don’t want to risk it. Especially since I’ve just been dripped on in my conservatory which has just had a new bloody roof costing a fortune. I am, shall we say, “not happy” and leave it there grrrr.! Anyway, onto the pictures (Click on them to make them bigger!)…
