Saturday Workbench

There’s been a lot of posts about Diplomacy (the game) and other boardgames on here of late, to the neglect of toy soldiers, so here’s an attempt to remedy that by showing what I’m currently working on.

28mm Foundry Union artillery, almost done!  After this I have a box of Perry plastic ACW artillery to work up.


Tamiya 1/48 scale Citroen car for my Weird War Two project.   I decided to assemble the Luftwaffe types that came in the box, they may prove useful, even if they’re a little larger than 28mm figures.



Eowyn, Gamling and Theoden, metal sculpts from the GW’s Defenders of Rohan set.  I had given them a very rough paint job years back when I played LOTR a lot with my son and never finished them, so now it’s time.



28mm Foundry Russian Cuirassiers for my SYW collection.   They’ll need a flag, and six more troopers would be nice, but it’s a downpayment on a badly needed unit of heavy cavalry for the Tsar.


Blessings to your brushes!



  1. That ACW gun is superior!
    I have that same car, which I use for Pulp gaming and sometimes for WWII as a command car.
    Nice work! Keep it up!

  2. Quite an eclectic varietal mix on your painting table today. I would enjoy seeing more information on your SYW project. The Diplomacy game has been quite fun to watch too.

    Interesting stuff, all around!

  3. A wonderfully eclectic table, but stunning work nonetheless.

  4. Good to see multiple projects across different periods underway, I'm the same, but don't seem able to stay with a single scale as you seem to have done to your credit.

  5. Nice to know I'm not the only one with similarly disparate things on my table.

    Very much taken with the car.



  6. Pete you beat me to it.... :-)
    Michael I thought it was just me - who said men can't multi-task.

  7. Some lovely work going on there Mr P!

  8. That is a lot of different project. I would love to see the car and its handlers in a Weird World War situation.

  9. A lot of choice to pick up and paint depending on the mood commend you sir!

  10. Very nice. Quite some interesting stuff on your desk.

  11. Thank you gentlemen for your encouragement. I greatly prefer the term "eclectic" to "scattered" or "ADHD". :) I'm trying to get all these projects done before Curt C's Analogue Hobbies project starts next month.

  12. Wow Mike, great output of models!

    Especially liking those ACW Arti crew.
