Paint Monkey strikes again!

As you can see this is me hard at work. Ok truthfully I am probably a little messier! I also probably get more paint on my fingers and clothes!



















Ok so what have I got today. Well I have finished the WW1 Germans for Matt. Here are the last 3 officers. While not sure of the make I will confirm that they are all 28mm.

It is funny how you notice things when it comes to taking the picture that you had overlooked in the painting. This time the horses eye's need a pupil! Still that's a quick fix and will be done long before Matt gets his hands on them.



Wargaming wise I have hit a little slump and am struggling for motivation. I know it will come back in a day or two but for now I am just in a wargames rut. I have prepped some Sudan 10mm figures and will try to crack on with them. With luck I will have something for Friday. Well that should motivate me a little anyway.

So with Luck I will see you again on Friday and let's all hope the Mojo comes back quickly!!

All the best Clint

  3. Omiting to paint something happens to me all the time, normally whilst I'm varnishing, but normally it's something that can be fixed quickly thank goodness.
    I like all the WW1 'Huns' you've done.
    You'll get your enthusiasm back in due ciourse I'm sure, with another new project on the horizon.

    1. Thanks Jo. I am normally pretty good at completing figures. There are times of course when I am less good. I Know I will get some enthusiasm back pretty soon. As I read around the Subject the New Project is getting pushed back further.

  5. Paint Monkey looks like me when I'm doing DIY. Recently repainted the bathroom and seemed to get more paint on me than I did on the walls! I'm equally messy when painting mini's but at least acrylic is easier to wash off.

    1. You and me both when it comes to DIY. Thank you Lee. The Chances are that Fran will say the picture is of Ray as well.

    2. Okay I'll say it then. the monkey looks better than Ray, although for a moment I didn't think that was it's foot!

    3. Thank you Fran I knew I could count on you. As for the foot I did look twice to make sure.

  7. I feel I should be listening to the Monkeys while reading these paint monkey posts. Nice looking officers as usual. I've come to love these camouflage bases you are doing for these figures I would love to see the units together in on shot.

    1. I may be able to put some figures together for a group shot before I give them back to Matt. I'll see what I can do. Thanks Robert.

  8. Hah - that's not a monkey! That's an APE! I guess that "paint ape" just doesn't have the same ring to it, though...

    The helmets seem very green to me. I don't know much about the uniforms of this period; is that the right colour?

    1. Yes It's an ape. But as you pointy out Paint Ape does not have the ring to it that paint monkey does. Yes the green is a little bright, but these are helmet covers and not the actual helmets that can be seen. Different uniforms were used in the early war, although these perhaps should be more grey in tone. Corduroy Uniforms were also used. Thanks Hugh.

  11. Nice looking figures. Paint monkey has given me a good idea on how to avoid getting paint on my clothes - take them off! Cheers, Paul :-)
