So as of today 24th December 2017, what's ON MY WORKBENCH...
|Anglo-Dutch Officers & Artizan Heroes of the Alamo|
|Davey Crockett, Jim Bowie & Col. Travis|
3 x Artizan 'Heroes of the Alamo' were promoted to the workbench, these are nice figures based on the John Wayne 'The Alamo' film, representing Davey Crockett, Colonel Travis and Jim Bowie, I got them at a bargain price from eBay. Painting is progressing well here and again will soon be ready for 'dip' to be applied.
|Boot Hill Mariachi Band & Dancer|
The other group of figures added to the workbench were the lovely Mexican Mariachi Band and dancer from Boot Hill Miniatures, 2 guitarists, a rotund trumpeter and a young dancing girl. All approaching a finish.
Discovery of the week was a Norman crossbowman, he's not had much work done to him to be fair, removed some flash on the helmet and freshened up some of the old paintwork. Likely get him finished next week.
Its approaching decision time as to what to get out for holiday time painting - with a few days off at Xmas there's the opportunity to do a substantial unit. Will it be an 28 man Anglo-Dutch Infantry Unit? An 8 man Regular Cavalry or 20 man Infantry unit for the Texian Revolution or will I go off piste again and dig out something else - 15mm WWI British Infantry, 20mm Team Yankee 'Yanks' or even more Normans for the Hastings project?
FIND OUT MORE NEXT WEEK....
Now to what's OFF THE WORKBENCH...
|Conquest Games Norman Knights|
|More Taxian Volunteers|
In the Texas Revolutionary period the 4 x Mexican Officers, 4 x Mexican Zapadores and 4 x Texian volunteers - (all 12 from Boot Hill miniatures), were completed as anticipated. One of the officers will be used to command the Zapadore contingent, one to command the white uniformed San Luis Potosi Active Militia Battalion which is nearing completion and of the other two officers one is ear-marked for the artillery and the final one to command the next Infantry battalion I have that is awaiting the workbench! (likely the Regular Matamoros Battalion)
