Goth Command Base 1

Wow! The posts are really pouring out again. This is actually not a result of my painting speeding up but rather because there was a back log of stuff that needed varnishing and I don't like to have too many pieces out after glossing as I leave a week between the gloss and the matt layers. It's some...

Goths - Front Ranks

At the risk of stretching myself a bit thin on the painting front, between Steppe nomads and Italian Wars Spanish, I pressed ahead with basing the first two ranks of Goths. There will be a further two ranks (three bases) of lesser armoured miniatures to back them up and another six units of foot as ...

Book Recommendations, WWI, Italian Front

Hi,

Might be a bit of a whim, might not be..... :)

I'm looking for books on the Italian Front during WWI. An overview or two and something a little more macro focusing on small actions if possible.

i don't have any Italian or Austrian so in English if at all possible please.

Thanks :)

Re: Detail brushes

Winsor & Newton No7 series. I used to swear by them but TBH they are not the same quality as they used to be, say 20 odd years ago. I use Rosemary Series 33, not but I'm not very satisfied with them nowadays as I have received some that refuse to keep their point- which is after all, the point of a...

Re: An Early Morning Norman Scenic Photoshoot

For a twenty year old paint job they're looking as fresh as a daisy. I think the last time any dice were rolled in anger with my Normans was at one of James Morris' WAB El Cid event in 2010! I always look after my miniatures. always magnetised and always enamel gloss varnished followed by a couple ...

An Early Morning Norman Scenic Photoshoot

Yesterday morning I was up at, 5:30am and taking pictures(!) of a few units of my Norman army, painted 20 odd years ago. The vignettes are more recent, 2019 to be more or less precise. :) Today at 5:30 am I am starting to post up the pictures and the links. Why? This particular Norman is now 20 year...

Re: Atheling's Early Byzantines, Belisarus' Boukellaroi

Thanks guys, appreciated :) Exquisite work as always - truly brings them to life - and your paintwork is one of the best advertisements for the figures too!! It would be great to see mixed units together en masse It would indeed. Unfortunately my wargames table has a mountain of stuff piled on top ...
