Nothing beats a new pack of 8 metal Pig figures and an our or so listening to an audio book whilst I prep them ready to paint.

Yes fast doesn't = good.

I find most PP rules pretty fast and good.

It seemed like a selling point years ago as if it was something to aspire too. What was that set called by Newbury...? Fast play Napoleonic? With a list of factors as long as your arm?

Football, summer and Trump have kept me busy but now 19 days with no work and family holidays beckon!

In my experience, Martin is best left to it awaiting the muse when it strikes. He generally (always) comes up with the goods. And I've always got at least one more pack of figures to be getting on with anyway. ACW generals will be purchased immediately on release as this is my favourite historical period. Mountain Tribes will also be purchased. But my longed for Late WW1 French stiĺl sit in a bag under the table unloved. Such is life.

Very nice. In a painting slump of epic proportions at the minute but these are inspiring.

That's terrible Duncan. How rude! I'd never set foot in there again if it was me.

I have seen your painting which I think is very similar to mine and it is in a style that I quite like so keep it up!

I wonder  if I am lone in this but I am rarely satisfied with how.my figures look when finished. I always compare them to others whether that be the actual painting style or the basing method.

I am always tinkering especially with how I base figures. It's rare that I am entirely happy once done. I never play with unpainted figures which does slow up my gaming.

Anyone else have these crisis of confidence episodes?

Your painting always inspires me Simon.

The Airfix rules in one of those small hardbacked books that they produced for several periods. We played on Monday night's at.my friend Barry Evans's house using 20mm figures. I was a student at the time so used Barry and Martin Smith's figures.

I also remember playing Abteilung with Martin Smith in his garage using 15mm Peter Pig, Qrf and SDD tanks and figures. Martin died a few years ago but I have very fond memories of those games.

Excellent report with someone looking games. The scenery is especially nice. Is that your own scenery in the first game Simon?? If so well done! And  i know how much work you put into painting your figures which look splendid. Sorry I missed this one.
