Shed Wars ECW - more figures painted (8/3/17)
« on: January 29, 2016, 10:34:59 AM »
Hi Folks

Work and Domestics have prevented me from being active for the past month but I have been busy building my latest project - the English Civil War.

I 'll keep an update here on this thread but most of the work will be reported on the blog.

As of today I have finally assembled the hundreds of plastic Warlord ECW troops and the long, but hopefully fun job of painting this lot starts from today. I have set myself the goal of finishing this by the end of June. Wish me luck.

I would need years to even assemble that amount of plastic. Painting it we would be talking decades.

Best of luck to both you and your sanity.

That's somewhat over a year's worth of painting for me :o

The ECW is a great period to play as you can go with big blocks of figures down to small groups of skirmishers and everything in between. They're a little larger than Warlord but Bicorne do some lovely character figures.

You're going to need a bigger shed soon!
