Back to the Brushes 245

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

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 completed

Cheers for now

This update for the 30 Days 30 Miniatures shows another five completed Gripping Beast Norman crossbowmen. This takes the total to ten, four to be based for ADLG and six to be based singly for skirmish games and WAB.


A versatile set of figures that will see use as Normans, obviously; Christian Spanish and mercenaries for the Viking and El Cid periods and even First Crusaders.

Day 16 - 16 figures completed

Cheers for now
