Back in business!

The last time I picked up a paintbrush that was smaller than half an inch was back in August of last year. A lot has happened in that time, but very little with my War of the Roses project. However today I was able to get hold of some free timber and have constructed a rudimentary bench/table from which to work from in my studio/workshop. It's a bit of a shambles at the moment but I have clear space to work. The lighting of the photograph isn't great as I took the photo this evening (keen as mustard me!).

I now have to meet my deadline of completing 15 miniatures a week which I know is going to be a challenge at times, but hey it's just good to know that I have a permanent place setup to paint my miniatures.

Battle of Exeter Part III

Since the end of August there has been no movement on this project due to house renovations (see previous post!). Now that we are moved in there is still plenty of work to be done...but I also have Salute 2016 in mind. That may seem along time away but I am a methodical man and I need to spread my costs.

Things to consider;

  • Painting of 692 miniatures plus any vignettes
  • Making a 10' x 6' of wargames terrain
  • Making a small part of the city of Exeter, including the bridge
I am looking at having this ready for January next year, which averages out at 16 miniatures a week approximately.

Time I got a shift on then!
