Soviet Sailors

Feels like forever since I last painted anything… probably been a week… I did clean off my painting area last week in an attempt to focus on… well… SOMETHING!? The work area was polluted by far too many “in the works” projects that I plinked away at but never really finished up any of. So I put everything that was on the desk away. Then a couple days later I started filling it with… well… new things… (for a couple days in between all I worked on was various sculpting projects and some mouldmaking!)

An order from Black Tree Design arrived which included a pack of Soviet Sailors. I also had a pack of them from a previous order. So I decided to knock them off…

It’s fun to work on something different from time to time – keep things fresh and interesting… but from time to time it has the potential to distract or completely derail any longterm plans or projects! While painting these I started thinking up scenarios I could se them in and just about revived our East Front Campaign (putting the current Dragonlance Campaign on hold… until I got it out of my system…). Luckily I didn’t quite have these finished by Saturday evening (when we normally play) and we raged ahead with the fantasy campaign. By next weekend I’ll have forgotten about these and some whole new thing will be threatening to derail the current campaign…

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

There’s some other odds and sods accumulating on the workbench… Some 1812 British and other nappy stuff … some more Zulu War stuff (whut the…!?)… the fruits of my sculpting labours…
