Well 12 more confederate sit in my dressing room waiting to be brought home and based, should have finished my confederate army by the end of the year, but when am i going to fit in the most beautiful Prussian army slowly being bought for me by my wife.

cheeky i know but i've made a folder on my desk in which i have placed order forms for a 1813 Prussian brigade. Calpe figures which really are the best to my mind. I have told my wife from now on if she can't think what to buy me for birthdays christmas etc, its all there. Great plan , if i had not already bought two of the units my self, keep your hands in your pockets nigel.!!!!!

painting some dismounted devon yeomanry at the moment, felt wrong some how , performing war horse and not painting some of the chaps i dress as every night

then i promise back to the principality of Jordvicken militia

worry not gentlemen the principality will be joining the ranks of figures to paint on the table, in between changes of costume,

indeed a regiment of foot is winging it's way to the dressing room this very night, we hope , until then here are the gentlemen already based that spent so long in the painting

i must get a better camera my iphone just isn't up to the job

painting time

Having had no time to paint as a result of the addition of a very wonderful daughter, i feared i'd never get to paint again,

then i thought..... i have twenty minutes every day at work, a small but workable gap while i'm not on stage, ( i'm appearing in Warhorse at the moment) i tried , and blow me down if it's not working , so far one confederate unit has taken four weeks but i'm getting quicker

this may be the answer to my lead mountain as long as the play keeps running and i'm in it

if i work out how too i'll post some pictures
