28mm WW1 German Jaegers. Paint monkey

yes it has been one of those periods where nothing has gone my way at all mostly it has to be with being the easter holidays and the weather being bright and sunny. So I have spent some time painting the front of house fenestration! Well it was beginning to need doing. Additionally I have been playing 40k with my nephew which has just SOAKED up a load of time.


But coming out the other side I have finished 7 more WW1 German Jaegers for my Mate MATT. Nine are pictured and I have colour matched the other 7 so they all fit in and look like they come from the same regiment. The figure on the far right is one of the originals but the other is in the mass and if you cannot spot him it shows how good a job I have managed.

I am not sure who made these figures but they are quite nice and I have painted them for Matt before and look forward to doing more in the future. But for now you will just have to be happy with this as a very vague blog post. Not very informative, as I am still catching up from yesterday when the internet was down all day here!

Other news. While Playing 40k I looked at the WW1 Aircraft boards and realised that they were painted wrong! So I have had to start to repaint them. IT is a pain but they will work so much better because of it when completed.

That's it for today, I intend to do my next blog post on Monday afer the club on Sunday as Paul from East Street Games is coming along to put on a zombie game for me. so Maybe a Zombie AAR on Monday.

Cheers Guys  have a good weekend!

    1. The Paint Monkey is over fed and most likely needs to cut back he is developing a proper wargames physique.

      Thanks Bob I am looking forward to the Zombie game.

    1. Thanks David, I find there is much to recommend WW1 in the early years before the trenches start to dominate. (Just my opinion but I find later WW1 a little bit more "stale"!)

  8. I hope you won against your nephew! Nice painting (but oh, I don't know how you have time to do it for someone else!). Batreps are always good :-) .

    1. Thanks C6. AS to who won He played Chaos Space marines and I used my old Tyranids. I think he won but he insists it as a draw. As for painting for other people it does bring a few pennies in, Not enough but it all helps.
