The benefits of the painting mojo 🤔

Life is busy at the moment but I am sure many of you like me find solace in painting. It certainly isn’t a chore at the moment and whilst I can’t quite find the enthusiasm for gaming those quiet few hours are a real help for my mental well-being with the added benefit of reducing the ‘mountain’. Long may it last and I am sure I will be sorting some action in the dungeon soon 😀 but painting progress this week, ps you will have noticed I have finally built a very simple photo booth which has made taking that quick snap easier.
Russian Civil War White Army artillery piece, the uniforms are from the Osprey book to add variety I will definately try and get an army shot soon
More artillery a Union 24pdr in hindsight I think they have spent too much time polishing the beast, it is a Perry Minaitures like the rest of the collection,  the figures are all bent as the gun is being fired. But I want to have some of the figures available to crew other guns if necessary so I kept the base with only two crew. (Having looked at the photo I realise I have not quite finished to crews uniforms so I will sort that later)
Roman artillery who were sat on the painting desk for ages.........
BOOM ! in action as anti elephant weaponry 
Also rattled through Russian Civil War Partizans. These of course can fight for either side but will most likely side with the whites.

Thanks for looking...........😀

  1. Hope all is going well at your end. On holiday now so may finally get some painting done. Figs look great, I remember flaming pigs, fairly useless. Massive cannon looks massive. Top stuff. Have started a ww2 french force, bargain from northstar. Someone else for early war germans
