1/3000 US Pre-Dreadnoughts (plus small 40k Imperial Navy update)

Blimey, it's been a while. I never intentionally intended to take a break from blogging, but one month became two and two became four. Thanks to everyone that's checked that all is well, I'm glad to report all definitely is.

Back to blogging. I've been working on some 1/3000 pre-Dreadnought ships (from WTJ Store) for Battlefleet 1900 (more on the Palladian Guard blog). These are superb miniatures and enjoyable enough to paint - although frosted slightly whilst spray undercoating so some colours are a bit drab. But as they're not meant to be looked at close up it's not a huge issue.

On the Painting Table: Gripping Beast Normans

Before posting I watched in horror as these miniatures fell to the hardwood floor whilst attempting to move them to a room with better light. Amazingly the paint survived really well bare some small chips (they are still unvarnished), and only three tops of bows had to be re-glued. There's a couple of bits that need fixing properly, so please bear that in mind...

Defence of a Fence
After finishing the Mordheim Freelancer last week, I got cracking with a new project. SAGA was a game that I followed closely before it was released, but somehow never got round to playing it.

I planned to get a Welsh warband back then, but eventually opted for the Normans (I have a bit of a soft spot for the old sods). My 40k Spears of Mawdryn draw some inspiration from the Welsh of this period - so I wanted to go for something a bit different. I've also treated myself to a few Norse Gaels primarily to represent dubious oiks from the Hebrides (Kingdom of the Isles).

Liebster Award: The worthwhile chain letter

Admiral Drax has very kindly nominated me for a Liebster Award. You're a scholar and gentleman sir!

So what is a Liebster Award? It's essentially a chain letter (but one that's actually worthwhile, I think) where you nominate some blogs you like to get people to go read them. Here are the guidelines:

1: Copy and paste the award on your blog linking it to the blogger who has given it you.
2. Pass the award to your top 11 blogs with less than 200 followers by leaving a comment on one of their posts to notify them that they have won the award and listing them on your own blog.
3. Sit back and bask in the warm fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing you have made someone's day!
4. There is no obligation to pass this onto someone else but its nice if you take the time to do so.

 

The format has changed slightly since Chris at Sippin' on Paint Water very generously nominated me in 2012. I like that, it's organic. So feel free to alter or ignore any of the sections when re-posting, except the nominations of course, or add your own.
