Doh! Well, I'm here now.
So what's occurring? Well, I am now properly self-employed as a wargames painter. It may work out, it may not, but if I don't try it now I never will.
Since I started I have painted the following
1000pts of "The Devils Brigade" for a customer (100+ figures and 4 vehicles)
10 British Shermans for a dodgy chap in Ottery!
6 US Shermans for eBay.
A German platoon for eBay(27 figures)
5 Games Workshop Ogres for eBay
Assorted German artillery for a customer(90 figures, 14 guns/rockets and scenic bases)
5 T-34s with 2 turrets each for eBay
24 15mm Cuirassiers for a customer
I am in the process of painting 18 German vehicles, 14 for a customer and 4 for eBay.
I have lots more Napoleonics to do, plus a German SS Company box for a customer
Here is a picture of the US Shermans that went on eBay this week. Not to shabby, in my opinion anyway.
In other news I have also ordered some Forged in War Shermans, just to see how they look. If they are good I will be ordering more from them and less from Battlefront, just because Battlefront have thrown a hissy fit and withdrawn their models from my usual supplier. I don't condone bully boy tactics and that seems to be what they have done to Maelstrom.
Well, that's it for now. I will try to update again soon(ish), but my boss is a real slave-driver.
And yes, she is out at the moment. ;)
Losing that gaming mojo - From time to time our motivation for the hobby ebbs and flows. Some drift off and never return others find a new period, scale or game to re-motivate them...
