A mixed bag

A week gone by. Starship troopers have arrived but I have done nothing with it except open the box. Have painted the base colours on most of my PITS figures (paint ran out : ( ) , plus a few red coats/blue trousers, just got to work out what is the best bulk painting method for these.

Did one test paint of a WW2 British, is ok if not a little too dark for my tastes, this could be the black undercoat or that I am mixing the colours too dark to start with, need to experiment.

Also painted up the base colours for my Back Of Beyond Chinese executioners and may well finish painting up them before doing much else. These are using the new lighter base colour scheme rather than my usual colours.

Once I paint these, the commanders and Russian command may go for an army, cavalry first, this period just keeps calling too me.

Probably 2-3 hours spent on miniatures this week.

On impulse bought Stalingrad by Antony Beevor and am very impressed so far, if it’s as good throughout I will certainly be picking up more of his work.
