since a while ago I thought I would share some pictures of my paint jobs as they are in progress. Of course other members are also encouraged to send me their painted miniatures pictures so I can upload them.
Well I have tried to stay away from them, but seeing how popular they are at the club I decided in my own fashion to put my hands on some Napoleonics. If I like them I will continue buying more, but if I do not, then I can make a meaningful donation to the club.

To boost up my Napoleonic gaming experience I also received from a friend some Prince August's Prussian infantry with which I am hopefully going to make a battalion.
|I love the Toy Soldier look of those miniatures.|
My recent excitement beside the other 300 projects I have ongoing, like everybody else, is African exploration (aka Colonial wargaming). I got interested in the period due to a couple of articles on the period in Wargamers Illustrated 292, written by Chris Peers one of the guru's of the subject.
I happened to have some RAFM miniatures 1890 Colonial British and I promptly bought a box of Warlord Games Zulus topped by some metal Zulu's from Brian (thanks mate!). Those latter I cannot recognize, I thought they were Wargames Foundry but they seem to be from another manufacturer, and to those I added spare plastic weapons and shields from the afore mentioned box.

I also have as you can see from my painting desk, some 28MM World War 2 Italians. Lovely figures, though they are super well equipped and their kit is immaculate, perhaps too smart for the battlefield. Never the less great miniatures that I will paint to use with Don Featherstone's Skirmish Wargaming (another fairly recent purchase).

That's about it from my painting desk, I should perhaps game more as I couldn't take part in the last 2 sessions.
By the way I also finished my DBR Tartar army in 15MM, although I already have bought some extra figures to start morphing them into Ottomans! what to say the leopard never loses his spots. Soon I will post some photos.
Thank you all for reading and see you at the next games day! (information on the right hand side of the page!)
