Just starting the classic Workbench thread lads where all of us can post what we are currently working on.

To start it off I am working on three Back of Beyond figures that are going to be a present to a mate. I have been doing work on and off on them for a while now, but they are presently reasonably near to conclusion. A couple of highlights on the gaiters, the belts, the shoes, the hair, sword etc. and they are done.

EDIT
oops! my pic seems to have been cut off by about a third! lol

That's roughly what the guy in middle is worried about too I think.

Looking forward to updates.

Has the guy on the right put on The One Ring? Clearly bottle-tops are like Tom Bombadil & are unaffected. :))

Perhaps predictably I'm working on some AB Napoleonic figures. This time 9 British Line infantry.

You've posted a picture that's 1,024px × 768px. You need to post a smaller version.

no mate; it fits just fine now. It's a matter of board preferences not pic size. I outlined the process of changing it in the Members section. ;-)

Prepped the entire Forged in Battle 1:3000 Trafalgar fleets, both sides, and have begun painting. Fun little buggers. Also building loads of 1:72 Normandy stuff.

Busy with the last 6 Saxon warriors for Dux Britaniarum/SAGA and then have 5 Dark Age peasant wimmun to paint and that army is done.

Productive year so far, since April I've painted over 60 28mm WW2 figures, over 50 28mm FIW figures and over 60 28mm Saxons. Hoping to paint an equal amount of 28mm Vikings before the year is out, and maybe start on the 6mm Vietnam.

Currently trying to finish the last of the 25mm FPW French so I can finally play a game with them.

To put the workbench into context:

I hope to clear the table and have a game soon...

Next 18th century imagi-nation battalion, RSM figures with some Minden command and gunners. Standard and bases to do, then they're off joing the forces mustering at Blasthof Bridge.

One platoon of Home Guard primed and had their flesh started last night. Pathetic perhaps but more than I was able to over a holiday weekend.

Any advice on doing glasses/spectacles?

Is that a lined box suitable for a cat I spot in the background? Cats are most useful animals when it comes to advising about painting. Mine often leaves the room in disgust at my feeble efforts.

It is indeed a sleeping place for Gizmo who often watches me paint; usually with some disdain. She is always quite careful to thread her way through the miniatures on the desk though...
