Tamsin's Finest - All Based and Ready for Action

I've based the section of British paras that Tamsin painted up for me, and I think you'll agree the result looks great. I love the shading on the packs, and the subtle way she did the camo on the Denison smocks. Brilliant stuff - thanks again Tamsin!
Isn't it amazing the way the internet and particularly the blogosphere has opened up opportunities for us to connect with each other about our hobby? I just love the fact that I have this great little squad in my army that was painted for me by someone I've never met on the other side of the world, just because I won a competition on her blog! It will be my turn to offer something again soon, perhaps when I hit 150,000 page views, or when I finally crack 200 followers. So if you're lurking, you have an incentive to commit...
With this lot added to the infantry I've finished, I will almost have 1000 points for a game of Bolt Action (once I finish my Churchill and a couple of other bits and pieces).

  2. I'm glad you like them Dux, and great basing you've done there - it's fantastic seeing them truly finished. Now for some shots of them in action! :)

    Looking at your pics, the one thing I would suggest is to go over the mugs with some satin varnish - they shouldn't really be matt.

  6. Those are some mighty fine figs. I like the name of the Regiment as well. What do you think about having a Regiment named after you Tamsin?
