Progress is progress

Yes first off some more BRIGADE MODELS (LINK) 6mm sci fi. This time the Shaman Medium tank! 6 of the things all ready based and varnished and shall be puit in their box by the time you read this! Not the biggest amount of painting but it needed to be done. And yes there is more still to come, and NO a group shot is not planned for a while.

The Shaman tank is a good all around tank but nothing so special that causes too much worry on the battlefield. It is in no way a bad tank but it does not have too many exceptional features. Competent and with a good crew deadly just not exceptional at any one thing.


 Work continues on the castle . The basics of the gate way are now done and the walk way parapet is about 1/2 done. So progress is slow but at least visible. My plans for the next few days are to get a set of stairs built to take models from the ground (Courtyard) to Parapet level. And that should be in the next update. (Fingers crossed).

That's it for today as It is planned to be another scorcher and I need to get things done before I suffer heat stroke!

Until next time, take care have fun and if  possible stay cool!

  2. As you say, any progress is better than no progress. I don't know if I should mention this but it is beautifully cool up here. Heatwave? What heatwave?

    1. Thank you Bryan. Yeah I know different parts of the country have different weather. And yes we have a heat wave. No problem mentioning it at all. But imagine if it was 6-9 degrees C hotter each day and no rain at all (not even a little)for 50 days! I don't often say I miss the rain but at the moment I am. It did rain briefly last Thursday for 30 mins but before that it was 50 days. Now only 6 days.

  3. It really is far too hot to paint so I applaud your efforts Clint. I am managing a couple of hours first thing in the morning, but that's me done.
