With John's box of figures now completely painted it's time for my weekly Sunday tidy up and planning for the week ahead. So having sorted out the next box and got everything organised into the desk drawers - figures and printed reference sheets/notes/ box art etc - I check through the paints and make a note of any that are getting low for which I don't have replacements, (what you see are just my most commonly used colours, I have about 100 unopened spares together in a drawer below).
This week I'm going to be painting Peter Pigs for Graham. I have another ECW regiment of foot and 38 Confederate's. I do enjoy flipping between scales and periods like this as it keeps things fresh. When I get to start John's latest box I'll be starting with the lovely Ral Partha winged hussars that you see below, the horses are especially good sculpts.
Meantime I continue to keep an open mind and one eye out for something a bit different to do for myself on the side
