Work continues on Churchill, I've been making the railings for Downing Street... whose idea was this? It would appear that shaping the paperclips into something similar to the railings is not at all easy! But I do think that he's starting to get somewhere, I just need to add the arch of the railings and the back wall, and then I can start painting him.
I've also been making some more progress on Churchill recently, I've been building his base out of plasticard. For a while I wasn't able to decide whether to try and build Downing Street or not, given the complexity of the railings in particular. In the end I just decided to do it anyway and see how it looks, and if not then I'm still able to change the base.
I've got some more pictures of the Roman legionary, who I've done a bit of work on recently. I wasn't particularly happy with how the red had turned out so I started it again, I've now finished his neck cloth and basecoated the other areas again. The face has also been basecoated, since I wanted to see how it would look with the red areas, and overall I'm pleased with how it's coming along so far!
In between working on my Golden Demon entry and painting the legionary, I've done some work on this model here. I picked him up in an auction in my local store several years ago, and only just got around to painting him. I've not done much so far, only the blue on the left leg, but I'm pleased with how that looks!
As I mentioned in my last post, I got a Legionary model while I was away, and it's one of the largest models I've worked on for a long time. I've also got a gladiator and a hoplite waiting, but I decided to start with this one since it's my favourite. The model is around the same height as a dreadknight, and I've had to use a larger plinth than usual to put him on.
Yes, I'm now back from Latin camp, and I had an excellent time! While most of it will probably sound quite dull (looking at Ovid's Metamorphoses III and Sallust's Bellum Catilinae), I thought I'd mention the two trips, which took place around the start of the second week. I've also got a new project which I'm working on, a large scale legionary model, so I'll put up some pictures of him quite soon!
Since I've mentioned what I'll be doing most of these two weeks, I thought I'd also say a bit about the special stuff. While the work on the Latin texts is fun, these parts are even better, and I'm rather looking forward to them. Again, these are last year's pictures, and the credit can be found in the resources section of the website.
My name is Chris Nelson, I'm a hobbyist. I started around eight years ago with Lord of the Rings as my first system, however I prefer painting to gaming.
