At a Snail's Pace


Yes, that is exactly how my painting is progressing. I managed to get an ox cart with two oxen and two pieces of baggage based as well as four dark age civilians on bases. Both need some paint and flock to finish them off. That should happen tonight unless I fall asleep again before I can get to it.

The Ba64 is done. I am happy with it but it came out darker than I expected. The ox cart still needs basing as I said before.

All of the pictures from my phone came out very dark. Not sure what was going on. Anyway this was the best shot of the revolting peasants. They came out very dirty looking which is not a bad thing. But that is what I have managed to accomplish so far.

In the Name of Roma

Wow, every time I mention it on the blog, I seem to make a sale within a day or so. Thank you folks. Now that I have mentioned this, I will have jinxed it (of course) but it seems worth the risk just to mention it again.

One interesting note is I have only managed to sell the Kindle version in the US and the UK. While the PDF has sold copies across the world or at least in may counties above the equator.

A Long Weekend

With the Memorial Day weekend just about to start, what does everyone have plans for. I am hoping for something quiet with the possibility of painting or something on that order.


  1. Chris, many evenings I have the same problem; too tired after work and cycling to stay awake long enough to warrant a trip down into the game room for a painting session. I know that feeling well!

    As for the long holiday weekend, we are staying around the house so I may get a painting or two under my belt. Also looking forward to pleasant weather for several long cycling outings over the weekend. Oh, and a bit of yard work.

    1. Sounds like the makings of a good weekend. Have a good one.

  2. It's all one big-work-in-progress. You're doing great!

    1. Thanks. Yes it does seem that way. The Dark Age civilians have been a fun diversion.

  3. Sometimes slow progress is good it avoids burn out

  4. slow work normally turns out better
