As you can see, the Mad Mahdi's Ansar have progressed little since I last mentioned it; the two new Hovels Northern European houses have been undercoated, so no excuses there; in the middle of the picture there is a nearly finished US gatling gun for Cuba 1898 which I will complete very quickly as the chance of a game is high. The further expanses of the table also have some challenging features:
The Panzer I in the foreground is intended for the SCW, and I am dithering. I think I've decided that I will use Humbrol 'tank grey' (oh, for the 'Authentics' !!!), along with acrylics for details. But, it is some time since I painted a tank, and I fear that my efforts may be poorer than usual. The real challenge, however, are the flats, top right. These are the beginnings of my War of 1812 in 30mm Zinngfiguren, and I last painted flats in 1985 before realised that some very sophisticated techniques are needed.
I must crack on!
