I've actually been painting my little (I wish) butt off. Last weekend I finished painting up all those nice U.S. and Spanish artillerymen I wrote about. They're finished, but the basing isn't done. Not on all those silly American infantry either. Why?
|In the foreground are the Perry gunners. Very nice, uncluttered figs. In the back are the RSM Spanish artillerymen. I'll get a final photo out when they are properly based.|
First on the list is 15 baseball players. They are the last of my Reviresco baseball stash, and I wanted to paint them for my friend who is a big baseball fan. He's equally divided between the Yankees of the Bronx Zoo era and those 80's Cubbies. I decided to paint them up as the '84 Cubs that won the NL East title because I am an inveterate Yankees hater. There was something very working class about that Cubs team, and I painted them up in their blue away pullovers. There are some fiddly details on them that give the uniforms some character. Should be finished with them tonight.
|Tim's '84 Cubs from Reviresco. The figs are pretty simple, and most of the detail has to be painted in. Even so, every team I've painted has been fun.|
|In the queue are these Cavalcade French and Indian War figures on snowshoes.|
