Feline Corruption

Crazy busy week! I managed to get up to the post office during a free period to post off the prizes for the Mad Padre and Scotty, and I've ordered the figures I'll be painting for Phil Broeders. I'm going to be doing up some 6mm Republican Romans from Baccus. This is a bit daunting - I've never painted anything so small before - but I'm looking forward to the challenge. Most likely I'll get hooked and start painting 6mm armies for myself. Lasalle with 6mm....? Hmmm.

In other news, I won a prize myself! The Mad Padre ran a great comp that involved writing a poem, and Mrs Padre picked mine as the winner. I'm so chuffed, and looking forward to being the proud owner of this lovely mini:



As the Padre pointed out, Mrs Padre didn't know that he had won one of my prizes, so he denies any corruption. What he doesn't know is that I struck a deal with his cat Stanley (who featured in the prize draw). Like all felines, Stanley was more than happy to engage in corrupt practices. The only question know is how to get the small rodents I promised him to Canada...

  2. Dux - you need to speak to the local Catta Nostra. I'm sure they'll be able to make arrangements with the CN in Canada to get the rodents to Stanley. ;)

    Congrats on the win!

    With the 6mm, remember that it is the units you are painting and not individual figures. If you need some tips, I'm sure Phil can describe his techniques or you can find plenty of them on the Baccus forum (when it's back up) or on the Angel Barracks forum.

  4. I hope you enjoy the experience! I thought the same about 6mm when I started but have never looked back. I'd suggest going with a grey undercoat, black wash (to pick out the detail) and block colour.

    I'm soooooo excited!
