Paint Monkey Sunday.

Looks like I shall turn "Paint Monkey " into a semi regular thing. Yes more painting for my mate Matt. And yes some more North West Frontier troops. I have no idea how many he's got now, but I do know I shall  be starting some more today. ( I am putting off doing the ones in Kilts!..... where I have to paint tartan) Yes I realise that will make you all want to see them more and that I should not have mentioned them. Oppsie!



 So any way here are 6 more figures that I have had to repaint for him. I suspect he got them on evil Bay. I am not saying they were badly painted or in the wrong colours or anything like that but there was no shading or highlights. So I did what I would normally choose to do if they were my figures and over paint every part of them. The bases also needed a bit of work so they were re done as well and they should fit in with the rest of his North west Frontier troops.

The Weather has been too hot for painting (ok not what we are used to here in the UK) for other parts of the world you are probably laughing at that statement. It has meant that paint was/is drying on the brush before it gets onto the figure! Enough of this wingding Pom malarkey, shutting up now and getting on with it.



 That's going to be it for today, I shall now go and prep some figures and get them primed before the thunder and lighting return.

Take care all, have a good Sunday and if you do anything I wouldn't do please don't tell me I may get jealous!

All the best Clint

Post script. http://www.newlinedesigns.co.uk/ have got a sale on. It's worth checking them out. Not only do they do 10mm stuff (a growing range) but also some other scales including 28mm pulp  figures if you look hard enough.

  1. NIcely done Clint, the repaint isn't noticeable at all and the khaki is spot on.
    When you're down on a mMonday from painting will you be suffering from PMS ?

    1. Paint Monkey syndrome is a serious condition! Almost as bad as shinnyitis! Thank you Jo, when painting the difference in paints was noticeable Too much paint in the recesses. Thank you Joe.

    1. I agree it is always good to recognise those nations that have been part of the commonwealth. England is a small country and without supporting allies we would have fared far worse historically.

      Thank you Dave.

    1. Thank you Michael. I must say I am thinking about getting 300 Zulu's from Newline.(10mm's) That should be enough to start with.

    1. LOL yes I can confirm that there will be paint everywhere and clumps of hair missing from my head! So I am relaxing a bit today and getting a few more 20mm zombies done today. So I predict more zombies by about Tuesday-Thursday. Thank you Bryan.

  6. These look great mate awesome you've made me want to think up an Indian themed PA gang for Across the Dead Earth but can't seem to find the look I want. I can find plenty of militia with AK's and stuff but it doesn't fit if the British setting if you know what I mean.

    1. I feel that you might have to convert some figures to make an Indian PA gang. Head swaps might be the easiest solution. That's a huge compliment thanks Simon.

  9. Looks like you're going to be busy again for a while. You've got to paint tartan! I think Paint Monkey ought to be given an extra banana for that.

    1. I shall enjoy painting tartan, well an approximation of plaid anyway. Thank you Anne. Cool drinks are better than fruit for me at present.
