Run Up to Salute.

Well here we go again. Today a few colonial British artillery. First off we have an officer and a Gatling gun, all in 10mm from Pendraken. Ok confession time, The officer was mostly painted by someone else as I bought it and a load of Zulus and British on eBay. Mostly unpainted, but this figure was painted so I just touched it up and covered over the scratches. Then a case of re-basing to get it to fit with my other colonial stuff. The Gatling gun was also rebased and touched up in the same way. A nice quick and easy addition to the horde. I could have re-painted in Khaki to better suit the Sudan maybe. But as I will use the British for Sudan and Zululand I have decided to keep the coloured uniforms. I just think they look better in red uniforms.

I have also managed to finish 3 gun crews. Again in the Blue uniforms. Four crew to each gun, these and the officer and Gatling gun will most likely be all the artillery I need for quite a few games. Again Pendraken 10mm based and ready to go to war. I do have a couple of limbers to add to the force but not just yet. but no limber riders so they might not get finished quite yet!

And Finally. I hope to meet some of you tomorrow at Salute and I will be cutting the Fudge today ready for tomorrow. Noticed that I have got a minor mention (indirectly at least I assume it's me) in this months Miniature Wargames. Well that is to say my fudge got a mention by Helena Gnash. Anyway here is what it looks like before cutting!

That's it for today, if I bump into you tat Salute GREAT. If I don't then take care and get some painting or gaiming done! All the best Clint

  5. Nice artty section, Clint! Have fun at Salute!
    I have drill, and a rather large wet thing to cross, so of course I won't be there! ;)
    My birthday is this month, and a Coworker gave me an excellent prebirthday gift.
    Dark chocolate fudge 3 lbs of it with 4 chopped ghost peppers hidden within. Those bite sized cubes are pure awesome and fantastic with coffee. The chocolate helps reduce the pepper burn, but they are very hot !
    My kids now ask questions of what type of fudge it is before they tuck in! I'll have to get more! ;)

  10. That's some serious hardware for your Brits Clint, they look good too.

    I'm now beginning to suspect that you have the making of a sadist, showing your culinary art off to perfection (I love fudge), here's hoping nothing goes wrong with the fudge delivery system (Fran intercepting it and eating it all, it going off in the heat an dmelting or maybe just spontaneously bursting into flames etc.).
    Oh, and have a good day out at Salute (don't forget the camera! )

    1. Fudge is still not set as we speak will have to try one last trick!!! Either that or I have to eat it all my self!

      Thanks Jo. Maybe I should have made Tapas! (Fran would still eat that though!)

    1. Yeah I agree no point in repainting for repainting's sake. I will only concentrate on a few games rather than blanket trying to cover everything.
