Sudan project XIV "India troops"

          Long time coming. These poor bastrads received no attention all month. With my daughter sick and cabin fever building. I was forced to do something. Yep, bitching now that I HAVE time to paint. Next I will complain about cold free beer!

At least international is still free beer. 18 hour return trip. Thats a river of beer and about 15 trips to the bathroom.

Sudan project XIII "Sudanese Tribesmen"

          Well these bastards took forever to finish. Not real happy with the way the flag dude came out. On the fast track, I have ordered 20mm flags. Screw wasting time and whatever hair I got left picking around with painting flags.
          The fantastic Waterloo mold and shity plastic strikes this group hard. Most the spears are half formed. Some swords are missing or look like daggers. The spears I will replace with metal ones. They have been ordered.
No chance they will ever fix their mold. I will have to buy them at shows and no longer from the internet. Each box will have to be inspected.

Flag on the play!

This is total bullshit. With the way GW attacks other people over IP. We get this;

Citadel Paints are pretty easy to work with. The entire line is designed so that every step of the way is really easy to follow: basecoat, shade, highlight – it’s right there on the paint pot. 

The Foundry system anyone, anyone? 
Foundry’s acrylic paints have been specially designed to suit my painting style. Each main colour is teamed up with a ready mixed highlight and shading tone, which means you won’t have to spend lots of time mixing paints, you won’t be wasting any paint, and you can be sure the colours will be consistent. There’s a huge range of colours in big 20ml pots, which are quick drying and intermixable with other manufacturers’ acrylic paint.
I use them all the time and can’t recommend them enough.

Kevin Dallimore

His book came out in 2005/6 and reprinted in 2010.

Go with Foundry paints. Much better quality.

HMGS HistoriCon Dates

         HistoriCon has MOVED. No longer in Fredericksburg, VA. It is now in Somerset, NJ. Right off of 287. Watch what time you plan on driving! Any where near rush hour will suck.
         The new location is easier for me to get too. No move driving around DC's 495 beltway. But the food options on sight are worse. Hotel option are better and cheaper. The food option off sight are not so close and you deal with NJ's divided roads.
The Details
Garden State Exhibit Center
HistoriCon 2017 July 13-17 


          Dervish Camels
          Camel Corp
          Tribal troops

Sands in the Sudan

          Yet another book purchase. The exchange rate is well in the dollar's favor. Looks cool. I really like the event cards and ambush tables.

Sudan project XII "Sudanese Tribesmen"

          The 1st block of 60 x 60mm (x3) Tribesmen dudes. These dudes roll under the green Flag.
          I was looking at some of the Perry Bros' stuff. They have original shit! How they got it or where or which kidney they sold to buy it, who knows?
         I saw a lot of their Dervish troops (28mms, mine are 20mm) did not have the colored squares all over. So I needed tribesmen and this group became a Perry Bros look a like.
         Finally finished a Brit command stand. The flag is questionable. I may have to go back and retouch it.
