Donnybrook - The Workers....


Things have been very quiet here in Don't throw a 1 land. I have bee busy with the brush though!! Unfortunately it was a 4 inch brush.....yes its decorating time in the Rousell household. One room down three to go........groan!!!!
I am allowed a break today though??? The Rejects have a game today, we've a special Blogger guest coming over for the first time so, Posties putting on a huge 15mm Napoleonic game for him. So I'm really looking forward to that!!!


Anyway the figures.........were painted my my bestest Oirsh pal Francois "O'Mally" Lee. They were infact painted several months ago with some other civilians as decoration for my European Donnybrook games.

All the figures, bar the lady on the left, are from pack CIV1, from Wargames Foundry, they do really fit into the 18th Century period, but I think I can get away with it?? The lone lady on the left is from Redouts FIX36, Milk Maid set, I shoulda got Fran to paint the cow as well!!

  6. Enjoy the game!
    Painting figures it much better than painting walls. Finish that last room and get back to what you do best.

  7. Good looking figures, Ray! I guess you are keeping us in suspense as to who the lucky special guest is until after the game, eh? Understand your four inch brushwork. In our household, an office and master bath have undergone some renovations including a coat of new paint this summer. I enjoy large scale painting (occasionally) too!

  8. Very nice bit of work, Fran. Nicely photo'd Ray.

    I believe the new Depot Battalion civilian figures for this period were released for sale yesterday, at the Britcon show. I've not seen them, other than as sculptor's greens so don't know what they've turned out like. May be of use to you, though.

  11. Nice one mate. Sorry to hear about the decorating.... Think if it this way, if you keep the missus happy maybe you'll get more time off for games later on....nah, didn't think so.
