Painting Table

This is how my desk/painting area is looking at the minute (it used to have a computer on it!)

As you can see, i've found a use for an Ikea pencil! It's currently supporting Governor Barbula's bum whilst he dries out a little (it rains a lot in the frontier provinces you know). Beside him are two Foundry figures which i'm painting as part of my Macedonian Army which you can see by clicking here.

As you can see from the photo, I have my pot of sky blue paint out. I'm desperate to use it somewhere! Hopefully when it comes to my Phalanx and Hypaspists I can use plenty of the stuff!

I cannot bear to look at the photo without wincing. It somehow reminds me of Achaemenid Persians and Alexander and the price of failure

Painting a lot of troops certainly is daunting! I've tried to break it all down so I have certain stages that I can achieve. I've costed up a certain number of points and am then trying to complete that basic army before I move on and add another unit. It seems to help a little, although my Macedonians are purely made up of mercenaries and light troops at the minute, no Phalanx in sight!

Do you blog Geordie? It'd be interesting to see Alexanders army.

Early days but my kit is slowly being cataloged. By coincidence I am looking at my 15mm Early Imperial Romans project just now :)
