Skeleton WIP and new book

Just a quick update today.

I've managed to complete the extra Skeletons I needed for the third block of infantry.  I've just finished adding sand and stones to the base so once it's dry I can get on with ink washes and highlighting.

I've also completed my entry for the Challenge theme round and will be finishing off the bases on these tonight and tomorrow.  No pictures yet as I want them to be a surprise for Curt who will be receiving them in the next few weeks as my entry fee for this year's competition.

I also received an unexpected parcel today from Wayland Games, well unexpected in terms of the contents:

I forgot I'd pre-ordered this a couple of months ago,  I don't collect the Infinity figures but I do use the same paints (Vallejo) as Angel and so I was hoping to pick up the odd tip or two.  After an hour flicking through it earlier I have to say I'm really pleased I bought it.  The book is basically one big collection of step by step painting articles showing loads of techniques with both brush and air-brush.  It comes with a free exclusive miniature which is the subject of one of the painting articles in the book, a nice touch.

You can find out more here.

I'll post a more detailed review in the next couple of days.


  1. Your splendid job on these skelettons is very tempting! I play only historical games now, but when I look at your work...mmmmmm...Really excellent Peter!

    1. Thanks Phil, you should give it a go. I'm really enjoying the sense of freedom to paint the figures how I want them to look.
