It is the first of March so an appropriate day for me to dip a brush into a paint pot and apply colour to a figure for the first time this year! I did say that 600 on the table in 2012 was going to be a bit of a stretch didn't I.
However I do have a cunning plan to make up at least some of the shortfall. One of my friends (another David) has been painting up a 15mm WSS Dutch army for me. He had already done 4 x 24 man units of foot and the other day he handed over another three such units, plus artillery and generals - all in all 97 figures. Much appreciated David, and a good start to this years target.
Once I get into a rhythm I can get up to 10 25mm figures a week painted so now its not so cold up in the attic I hope to make some progress of my own.
I do enjoy seeing the end result when I've done some painting but I would always much rather play than paint. Anyway I have my first non Falkirk game of the year tomorrow so am looking forward to that. Watch this space - I must remember to pack the camera.
