Stuff on the table - December 2017

Here's what's on the table as we enter the last month of the year:
  • Zvezda 1/144th Ju-87 Stuka (2017)
  • Privateer Press Hordes Ravagore (2016)
The Ravagore is virtually complete, just needs final assembly and details and a bit of work on the base. It's the last Privateer Press item that I have to do. I like to have one or two to work on a year but no more than that as they are really time consuming. 
The Stuka has been sitting there complete and waiting a paint job for a couple of months now. I also have a Revell and two Eudard 1/144th Stukas to be done. Annoyingly all of them are slightly different sizes. I need to make a decision on what to do with them.


Time permitting what with Christmas and everything, I'll start on some of the 10mm Punic Wars backlog and/or some plane kits and/or the 15mm Panzer Grenadier platoon.

Stuff on the table - November 2017 UPDATE

Updates to the items in progress during November:

  • Zvezda 1/144th Ju-87 Stuka (2017) - no further progress
  • Minicraft 1/144th Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero (2017) - COMPLETE
  • Privateer Press Hordes Ravagore (2016) - painted and based, final assembly and details to complete
  • Artizan Designs 28mm WW2 Maquis (2013) - COMPLETE
  • Newline Designs 10mm Greek Hoplites (2015)  - COMPLETE
November was a good month. Completing the Maquis and Hoplites was a landmark as they were the oldest outstanding figures. They'll be a separate post about those hopefully but here's some shots of the Zero.

Stuff on the table - November 2017

Here's what's on the table as the start the month:
  • Zvezda 1/144th Ju-87 Stuka (2017)
  • Minicraft 1/144th Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero (2017)
  • Privateer Press Hordes Ravagore (2016)
  • Artizan Designs 28mm WW2 Maquis (2013)
  • Newline Designs 10mm Greek Hoplites (2015) 
As we go into the last two months of the year it's all about trying to clear up the pre-2017 stuff. So the Ravagore, Maquis and Hoplites are the priorities for this month. The Maquis just need basing, so once I decide on a basing scheme these will be completed. The Hoplites are in a similar state but I also need to complete the shield designs.

The Ravagore has some awkward parts which can only be painted prior to assembly. This will be quite an involved process of paint a bit, assemble a bit and repeat. 

Current state of the Ravagore
