Overview of May and the pleadge!

With May swiftly flying by this is what I managed to crack out over the month....

It started with a very panicky Nic from the club asking me to drop the bomb on the enforcers...

so a couple of days work and these were all sorted! I than sat back and watched the mayhem unfold.

With partizan looming I finished off the trolls for Panzerfaust

splashed some paint on some witches, and painted a unit of outcasts for the gates of Antares table the night before as you do!

So with a bag full of toys it was time to get on with the may survivor series and with board game night planned in I was running devils run so it would be rude not to have painted models!

These were a dream to paint, really good detail and 20mm so nice and chunky as playing pieces.

So with the very successful demo night out of the way I had the rare chance to goto a gaming day over at warhammer world for Ed's 30K project so I pumped out the two quad mortars for the day again finishing these off the night before!

and that was it really for the month painting wise a right mishmash of bits but that's how I like it!

So onto the pledge...

Bought 39 (gotta love show season!)
Painted 64

Difference + 25

so once again I manage to stay about the bought/painted factor, and looking at what I've done for the first 5 months of the year the chances of me hitting 1000 models painted is pretty low but then I'm not overly fussed I think this year will be finishing off projects and painting random cool shit that I can display.

Partizan 2016

A couple of weeks ago myself and Keith rocked upto Newark and dusted off the Gates of Antares table and rolled some dice and generally had a bloody good time!

In the usual Anton fashion I ran around and snapped the tables that were at the show, lots and lots of sexy eye candy around on this one, so grab a brew and have a look a the following pics,

apologises to all the clubs and individuals involved as I managed to get zero info on who did what

I was contacted by Donna of Wargames events and was looking for some witches to be painted for open combat, As Donna is the other half of Nick from warlord and as a personal favour I blasted the above out great fun to paint and came out far better than I expected! 

really clever table and some thing completely different 

The ship game won best in show I believe? 

A great looking board from a very British civil war, lots and lots of detail on this one !

The Perrys rocked up with Allessio and played some bolt action 

This really caught my eye not very often you get a fairground as terrain on a table! 

minions racing game from those lovely chaps at the RAF club, great looking game and the chap running the game looked knackered as it was buzzing all day! 

I loved this snow table, every thing was really well done, sadly I didn't get the chance to talk to the guys or play on the table, but I was very very impressed! 

and for those who know me, my favourite tank of WW2

Great escape games the Chicago way, one system that I'm looking into however I need to shift some random crap to make some space! 

I was well chuffed to see this, 

very very nice!! 

and the grin on Robs face says it all! 

I actually remembered to get some pics of the phat cats table! 

A huge pile of stuff this time round, so keep your eyes open for this appearing on the blog as I get to splash paint on them!
