This is my entry for the Colonial Painting Expedition over on the Colonial Adventures board at Lead Adventures Forum. There are some very nice figures over there. This is the first figure I've taken a photo of with my new display board and backdrop. I think it turned out ok, might need to tweek some things a bit.

Holly cow, it's been a crazy few months! If anyone tells me raising a new born with both parents working full time and a wife also getting her master's degree is easy, I'll slap them. Then I'd help them up, and then slap them again! Painting has slowed to a craw around here. I've gone from hours to 30 min every few days. Even with this schedule, I've been able to paint some more colonial Germans and some colonial Russians for my fictional Africa setting. I've also painted a few GW Empire figures, I really like the older models. I just haven't had the time to take photos of them. Speaking of photos, I made two small photo bases (the name of what they are called escapes me right now). One is a desert base and the other is a grass base. I put the finished figures on them with a picture in the background and then snap away. Hopefully this will improve the pictures around here....as soon as I'm able to take them that is. Anyway, this was just a short post to let everyone who still checks in every once and a while that I'm still kicking and slapping paint.
