Painting total for 2009 - part 2

Added to my last tally a couple of months ago we can add the following:

36 Victrix Italians using white undercoat and a nasty accident using vallejo matt varnish. Sob. 8 friggin hours of inking and lining to deal with the worst effects of the varnish but their beauty is still marred!

15 Foundry casualties using the Army Painter stuff as an experiment.

64 Foundry Bavarians that are now safely on their way to Canada.

2 Hovels buildings.

On the whole not a bad total as I dont paint that much and have hardly done any at the weekends.

At the moment am working on some foundry Bavarians por moi, and then back to some more Bavarians for some Canadian meglomaniac.

My first houses

Prussian estate agents moving in to get their pound of flesh

Small Franco / Corsican chap wants to put house on market indepedently

The first French regiment I ever painted marching out to deal with Prussian interlopers.

I am quite pleased with the results although the purists will say its Spanish, I have seen very similar houses in Bavaria.

I am a massive Terry Pratchett fan, and have been reading his books since the late 80's.

These are my three favourite characters.

Esme Weatherwax

Nanny Ogg (plus Greebo the cat)

Commander Vimes (the Republican hero)
