The Painting Desk has not received the spotlight for awhile so focus today is on the little square of real estate I occasionally call home.
Yes, it is quite untidy but that is how a workspace is supposed to look, right? Serious work is being done here! On the table are figures for two units: 15 Spanish-American War Volunteer Infantry from Old Glory in the back and 13 Punic Wars Libyan spear men from Renegade in the fore. I wonder when Renegade will resurface and begin producing again? I hope soon.
In the left foreground are a handful of Baccus 6mm light infantry awaiting primering. From my recent photo shoot of the 6mm Punic Wars collection and the Cannae battles, I realized that the force could use some additional light infantry components of the spear-chucking variety. The collection has too many slingers and is understrength on light javelin foot. Given the adage that if you've got them, paint them, I painted enough slingers to field 9 stands of 8. Too many!
On the figure front, several packages arrived within the last week. Taking advantage of BTD USA's recent 50% discount offering, I picked up additional bowman and Spanish or mercenary spear men. For the Punic Wars project, included in the order were several packs of Celts with a plan to field several warbands.
With me beginning to plow through Americans for the SAW project, I piggybacked onto Scott's Old Glory order and added more packs for the project. Most were Americans but one pack of Spanish infantry tagged along.
