The race is on...... End of year count down....

Back in August I set myself the challange of clearing the "odds & sods" that I had built up over the years, whilst I did not achieve the required results it did focus the mind and has allowed me to back fill several projects.

With plans a foot for next year, I really need to focus on clearing several of the items languishing on the paint table.

  • A couple of shock markers for the US Marines for Chain of Command, a Senior and Junior Leader for the Marine Corps.
  • A member of the Press Corp for modern day Africa.
  • Senior and Junior Leader for converting my late war Russians to Chain of Command.
  • 2 AT Guns for the Russians as support options.
  • A Tudor Artillery piece for the Elizabethan Wars.
  • Women, Children, Engineers and a surgeon for Ireland.

Right, that's reminded me how much I've got to do, I must get back to the painting table.


  1. Hey, they're spackled... that's halfway done! Good luck and get cracking, we want to see what you do with them.

  2. Glad to see that you have a tleast made some progress Stu. Over the past few months, I've really tried to stick to one project at a time, coupled with backlog clearing of stuff. Doing pretty well but lack of time generally to paint is my biggest issue.

    1. I wish I could say the same Steve, although I have cut may purchases down due to plenty in the queue that has been amassed over about 10 years.

  3. A good variety of periods and scale to keep you keen Stu.
    Also good to see someone else who bases his figures before painting.
