For Sofie: Saturday Night Painting Desk

Sofie Vandersmissen is a talented painter who turns out some lovely fantasy figures.   On her blog today she suggests that other bloggers post pictures of what’s currently on their painting table on Saturday.

I think that’s a great idea, both to build the community of bloggers and to encourages us to have something on the go.  So here’s my table just before dinner tonight.  In the foreground are some 28mm GW warriors of Rohan from their Lord of the Rings range.   In the background are some items for my 28mm Ottoman army: a vintage Minifigs artillery piece from their English Civil War range, and some Spahis of the Porte from The Assault Group’s Renaissance range, which will be getting my full attention as soon as the Rohan boys are finished.

I could get these Rohan fellows done tonight, but Mrs. Padre and I are getting dolled up to go to the local jazz club like the hep cats we are.

Thanks for this idea, Sofie.



  1. Thanks for the compliment Michael! And thanks to post a picture of your paint table! You have some beautifully painted miniatures there! I posted link to this message in my blog post.
    Greetings, Sofie

  2. Looking good!

    Ride now!... Ride now!... Ride! Ride to ruin and the world's ending!

  3. I have a weakness for Rohirrim... we shall have to get those figures on the table, you and I.

  4. Lovely stuff, Padre. I have those very minis somewhere in my collection, I shall have to dig them out and see if I can match you.

  5. Thanks all - I hope you like the finished figures - pics now posted.
