Hello, another long overdue post, thankfully my little lady is well on the mend now however I really haven't had a great amount of free time for the hobby. I have managed bits and pieces here and there so there has been some progress if not a lot. I'm still very enthusiastic about my Saxon project and managed to get 3 test figures complete so I feel I have my colours nailed down for my 1st battalion.
As usual I made a small video showing their progress, hopefully get stuck into them a little more this month.
I'm so happy to have finished all the little conversion work on these guys and it wasn't as much of a bother as I thought it would be. It's a pity there aren't any Saxon light infantry available in 18mm (please correct me if I'm wrong!) as they have a sweet uniform.
I'm chuffed with how the buttons have come out, this was my main concern for the conversions that the buttons would look reasonably good and I'm very pleased with them.
The calfskin covers area a touch I picked up from the beautiful Westfalia 28mm Saxon range and Kawe's reference plates. Have to say a huge thank you to Kawe for his constant help and encouragement with my 18mm Saxons!!!!!!
With very little time to sit painting I decided when I had that spare 30mins I'd do a little bit of modelling here and there for my nephew David's 20mm WW2 Russian collection. I also managed to build 4x T34's that are not shown, so I'll hopefully share some progress of David's growing collection soon.
Gonna relax today and watch all the sport on TV, best of luck to Andy Murray in the Wimbledon Final and it's the Euro Final tonight, not really sure who to support? France have been the better of the 2 over the tournament but the semi finals were strange. Perhaps since Wales and Iceland went out the tournament has lost some of its shine? Wales were brilliant!!! so sad to see them go home.
My next post will be a game I managed to fit in last weekend from the 1813 period.
