In order to keep some self-exacted promises, IÂ will likely inflict upon you anÂ uptick in posts on this blog. It is my intentionÂ in the newly-arrived year both to write more and to make a dent in the GULP (the Great Unpainted Lead Pile) that lives in the closet.
This motley crew ofÂ civilians come to us fromÂ the much-missed Mega Miniatures. They remain, I believe, my soleÂ purchase at a FLGS (which has moved, expanded, and undergone a name change between the time I purchased and painted these lovelies…) since 1970-something.
The poor souls have loitered, based and primed, for every bit ofÂ two years before sat down to dash on a coat of paint. Note well that I do not submit them as exemplars of any sort of painting skill. Rather, they have lifted my spirits on this first day of the new year by the simple fact thatÂ they are finished at last!
