Back at it with a few new Egyptians…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

This will be an element of Psiloi in a New Kingdom Egyptian DBA army. Figures are from Wargames Foundry

Same sort of stuff on individual stands for skirmish gamin’

Also from foundry…

Now those of you that have been following for some time and been playing close attention will probably have noticed that I never use plastic bases. Never. Ever. I just don’t. And so you are probably wondering why on earth I’ve painted this guy and based him – not only on a plastic base – but also on a square one (something else I never do with individually based figures)… I’m not entirely sure either…. Something to do with having way too many command figures and not knowing really what to do with them and while up late one night earlier this week (perhaps a bit too late) I had some crazy notion of basing up the spares and painting them to sell (and while I never used plastic or square individual bases… I do recognize that many, many others do…) - so I guess I do know why I based him so, I’m just not entirely sure how I got him painted when there’s so many of my OWN figures needing painting…!? And really who’s going to buy a SINGLE dude like this!? Shipping him alone would cost more than any sensible person would pay (luckily, most wargamers – myself included – are far from being “sensible people”…).

Not Egyptian. Not Foundry, either. A lady the Warlord Games Greek civilian pack.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

I have a bunch more Egyptians on the workbench… a few Greeks… some West Franks still lurking in the back…

I get that all systems tend toward entropy...

But I never cease to be amazed at how quickly my game/project table can become cluttered with... everything... Better get tidying - we're back to Savage Saturdays tonight!


  1. Nice painting; you'll need to get the workbench under control in time for June,

  2. I can only dream of a mancave like that....

  3. That is a serious man area! You need a fridge and a big screen tv and your set :)

  4. There is actually a fridge in the next room.

    a TV, though...? How would I get any painting done!?

  5. I like the box of cliff bars ready for energy during those all-night, "I'm almost done, just one more figure..." painting sessions!

    On the topic of TVs... I used to listen to movies while I painted, but for the past few years it's been all audio books; movies aren't made to be listened to, audio books are. Do you listen to anything while painting?
