I am what I would classify as a fair painter at best. I think the most enjoyable aspect of this hobby for me is the actual assembly of figures on the table. I like the look of a good sized force all laid out. To that end, I usually collect smaller scale figures 6mm and 10mm. I would say my approach to painting is to slap on paint and then base the figures. If they look okay from a few feet away then I am fine with them. That being said I still love the look of well painted figures. I often spend time marveling at the 6mm photos on the GHQ forum or other web pages.

A few months ago I mentioned that I had made and received an order from Reinforcements by post. This week I managed to actually take them out for a good look and snap the above photos. I have to say these figures look amazing. My directions were followed perfectly and they were even based on litko bases like my other 6mm SYW forces. I can not recommend the company enough. I hope to save up some extra cash in the near future to order some more figures from them. The one and only drawback is that these figures put my own poorly painted SYW figures to shame.

Nice pictures. 6mm is a little too small for me and my old eyes these days. However, they look real nice. How is your painting coming?

Thanks for the comment and nice remarks about the pictures. Painting coming along well, as usual can not stay focused. On my painting table now some 20mm modern liberation figures half done a bunch of Adler WWII and some 10mm modern figures.

Hope all is well, and I really like the pictures on your blog. I have to get back to all those WWI Russians.

What's new? I was waiting for some more WWI miniatures from Pendraken so I pulled out some of the Pendraken Colonial Sudan Range and painted them up. I try to post some on my blog. Did a cardboard steamer as well for a Khartoum battle. We see how they turn out.

Not much going on right now. Should have an update in a few days. My digital camera actually died after about 6 years so had to buy a new one. Can't wait to see the 10mm colonial stuff!!!

Sorry for being late on the updates. Not much really going on just playing around with basing some adler figures. I promise once I get something new painted I will post an update. Thanks for checking in and the feedback.
