Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest if you rummage about a bit (check out the Labels at the bottom of the blog). I concentrate on air and naval wargaming, but other 'skirmishy' things quite often pop up out of nowhere, only to disappear again after something else grabs my attention. I even finish the occasional project now and again!

MiG Alley USN/USMC Basecoat
Basecoat and Black Ink / Future Wash
Citadel Night World Blue Basecoat
I painted the blue basecoat on the Tumbling Dice 1/600th USN/USMC aircraft today, initially using Vallejo Dark Prussia Blue but switching to a very, very old pot of Citadel Night World Blue, as the first option ended up way too purple. I then gave the whole lot a wash in a 25:75 mix of Black India Ink and Future, both to seal the basecoat and to add some definition to the panel lines. They now need to dry off completely before I can start on the canopies and colourful white, red and yellow details.
