January has been a productive month for me and I am pleased with the models completed but for February I would like to try something different. Being a solo gamer the skirmish game is almost the only type of game I can afford to play in 28mm. It would be nice to actually give myself a promotion and go for a larger game where I can throw battalions around instead of squads...
Last year I tried to paint 20mm figures, I loved the cost of these little dudes but I am afraid that my painting and basing of these models was pants. I grew up on Donald Featherstone books and in Particulsr "Operation Warboard" by Gavin Lyall. This little book got so much use that it literally fell apart in my hands!! I believe it to be very similar to "Rapid Fire" a set which I also greatly admire. Did anyone else use Mr Lyalls book?
Painting of 20mm figures can be effective...see here...
Amazing work...it almost made me start planning a "Black Powder" army in this scale! I have just a few days to decide what to paint, happy times, and with my new white undercoat system in development who knows what may happen?
I do hope that you Chaps face the same "problems" that I do in my hobby, I think it is all part of the enjoyment!

Good luck for February!
