6mm Charity Painting Update no 1

A background to this project can be found here. And a number of painting guides has been produced a good start is this one as it contains links to the other ones.

So all the models has been sent out to the brave painters and I have had the pleasure of receiving 14 of the 44 batches of models already. I will do a presentation of the units in a special blog update once the armies are completed, so today is just an overview of where we are at. So the project is now about 25% complete with 7 entries for the blue Denswe army and 6 for the red Siarus army (sent out a week later). The Denswe king has a arrived and I know Sidney is cracking on with the Siarus Field Marshal. To say that I am proud of the painters would be an understatement.

Some of the many progress shots from the painters, this one from Jan Karrman. – The Karlstroms Dragoons.

I have been delighted to get the different small packs of models with small notes that has really given me some good smiles …. (just a good example below).

Thanks David for this one!

I have had some helps from the Middle One in making sure I do not mix everything up in getting on with basing them all.

The Box system was her idea and worked really well for the basing organisation!

I got my sand, paints and grasses out and got on with the basing.

I find basing someone else’s models like holding a little baby the first time – it freaks me out. But I got over it.

Here is a shot of the models so far – I think it looks excellent. The smaller bases are the Denswe Commanders.

Ok I said I would not do a presentation of any specific units, well I changed my mind, here are 3 of the mounted ones and the Denswe King (I will do the flags for the infantry in a batch when I have more).

First out the Freltin’s Horse by Dave French
Then the Viskin’s Horse by Paul Wisken
Garetsimov’s Cuirassiers by Gareth Beamish
The Denswe King by Mark Backhouse

/ Hope that was of some interest, Great stuff all around!
