Give him a nanna!

yes Paint monkey has finished this batch of now. 23 figures in all (20 painted and three used as a colour match!). So while you may count 23 in the middle photo there are really only 20 new ones painted. You don't have to count them but you can if you want!

Without blowing my own trumpet I am pleased with how they have come out. Which is not to say that they will win any prize but that I am happy with them.

They are all boxed up and will be given back to Matt on Sunday. I have no idea how many Matt has now, but I am sure when they are all assembled it will be more than I recall.

Not being into Vexillology (study of flags) I can make no guess if this flag is right. I was asked to put it on them so they now have a nice bright red flag. As well as a bright red drum as that ties them all together. I think it looks "Spanking in Red" so I'll say no more about them other than it's probably wrong but to be honest only a bean counter would truly care.

That's it for today EXCEPT:
Roy over at  http://rwhobbyblog.blogspot.co.uk/
Is planning a Wild West Play by Blog game.
The board he's making looks very good and if the game turns out half as good as the board it really should be a game worth being in.

So a few good men are needed there. I was hoping for a few naughty women but alas another dream shattered!

So that is it for now as I try to work out what I should be painting for myself. Take care all and Thanks for dropping bye.

All the best Clint

  2. Yep, I did count 23 in the middle photo (sad, aren't I?). I agree with Blax, they are staggeringly good. Paint monkey deserves more than a banana. Give him a whole bunch!

  7. Paint Monkey returns! You have done a splendid job with these Clint. They really do pop.

    Sorry I've been absent of late but my Father In Law has been in and out of hospital for much of October. Usually I keep up with people even if I'm not posting on my own blog. Haven't been up to it this time round.

      It is always a pleasure to see you on the blogosphere either in comments or in posts but family must come first. So we all miss you and wish you well but understand if you can't post or comment.

    1. Thank you Joe.
      The truth is that I don't always have time to paint my own or others. But I do like wielding a brush so it just kinada gets done even if it is only a little a day. Sometimes just 10munites.
