This heat is killing me

Well in true English fashion I am complaining about the weather. Seems we are never happy, it's either raining, too cold or  too windy, but this heat is draining me. The muggy nights mean very little sleep and after a day at work I cannot be bothered to paint figures or update the blog, it's just too hot.

So the figures below were painted a couple of weeks ago, it's only now that I've got around to posting pictures of them So without further ado here they are. First up is a 15mm Skytrex Sherman tank from my spare box, must of been a left over from the US force I sold last year. The commander figure I believe is from Battlefront.

I'll need to get some decals to finish the model off. I have also discovered a second tank that I will get painted up. A shame they don't fit with my Early war Brits.

Next up is further progress on my Crimean War project. I have finished all the infantry for the 13/14th division. I have also painted up 2 divisional commanders and the command base for Prince Menshikov. The infantry are all from Pendraken and the Officers from Old Glory.

Now I've got 3 more regiments undercoated and ready to paint as well as sufficient figures to complete a second division. However these have been sitting for over a week as I cannot bear the heat in my painting room. Oh for a little rain to cool things off.

Good stuff, especially your Crimean war project. Where did you get the flags? I can't find any in 10mm, and I'm about to start the same project as you.

I only like rain when it brings cool weather with it, but the past two showers only mad it worse by making it humid as well as f'in hot !

Scotty i cant find any Crimean war stuff on the Old Glory site. Can you point me in the right direction? I just bought a British brigade on Saturday from Magister Militum and have been wondering where to get the command figures from.

i used the Napoleonics range for my Russian generals

NUFCwilson1 said...

They certainly work ok for the Russians. I wonder what Neil will be using for the British.
