Camelphracts.

God I'm bored. I have a huge amount of marking to do, about 2 weeks worth, so weekend break is off as it's already late.
Still enough of 1st world problems, at least I've done some painting and some terrible photography

A unit a Parthian Camelphracts. I really love camelphracts but I bet they were rubbish, camels are stubborn and very tall. They are very fast and do scare horses though, they smell bad. 

The figures are Xyston and lovely to paint


 The 7YW project continues with the Prussians.

Hulsen Infantry regiment


10mm from Pendraken. I've also painted some cannon but no crew yet.

For a couple of nights this week James and I have played a WW2 game over Zoom with Dave being the Germans and the croupier. Great game, I was the para infantry and suffered 50% casualties, mainly from bloody nebelwerfers. It was a great game and can be found on Dave's blog.
I'm enjoying online gaming, takes a while to get your act together but the experience is great.

Stay safe

    1. Cheers mate, just a bad evening really. Recovered by converting the Brunswickers to Prussians, 3 regiments done, 2 to go, plus guns and cavalry which may be trickier, but they will all convert. Which is nice

  2. Good luck with your marking. Our semester ended in April but the last two weeks were tough. Plus teaching via Zoom was way more work than in the classroom.

    Lovely work on the figures. The Camelphracts would be a great name for a prof rock band.
