Hello again all.
Obviously the world has been a very weird place since my last post and wargaming has taken a big hit during the lockdown. I have managed to get some stuff done but to be honest having to stay in constantly for 4 months (I have been shielding due to my blood condition) started to get a bit much and a huge wave of ‘cant be arsed’ happened, and picking up the ‘War in the East’ PC game very cheap on the Steam Summer sale didn’t help either!
However, one of the things I have managed to do was to take part in Per’s 6mm Charity paint along thingy which was ace to be a part of. A full rundown of what this entails can be found on Per’s blog (if you haven’t seen it already it can be found here and it is well worth the effort – https://rollaone.com/category/charity-project/ ) but basically the idea is that two identical forces would be split into units and each person signing up would be sent a unit to paint which would be used by Per and his son to fight a battle or two and would then be raffled off and the money will go to charity. The figures were donated by Peter Berry at Baccus which was a lovely touch, but not a surprising thing to happen really as Peter is a cracking person, and we were all sent a rough guide to colours to be used for our units.
After the Covid inspired postal delay my figures duly arrived and I got to work on them straight away. The period is one that I have never had an interest in hence have never painted any figures for it but I must say slapping some pigment on these little fellas was a joy. The figures were nicely proportioned and were a breeze to get done – I even got over the disappointment of having light brown facings picked for me!
I believe the project is virtually completed and I must say seeing all the figures photographed en masse was something special, I’m very pleased to have been a part of it. Anyway without further ado, here’s the finest body of men in the Siarus Army the Fulvhukin’s Regiment of Foot…
