On the Paint Table No28 and Partizan


Good Morning Chaps and Chapesses and welcome to my On the Paint Table week 28. Now as you can see there is not a lot happening on but for some buildings and dogs.


Actually there is one other thing having and it is a big thing too and that is the sandy base that they are all sitting on. So PK what is that large base that measures 14" in diameter well I will tell you. This is the start of a cricketer pitch that is going to be the centre part of the game that the Very British Civil Forum is putting on at Partizan in the Park, on the 1st June. Now I have stated that this is the start and actually now has been undercoated/basecoated really for the fun bit to start. Hopefully I will have the whole pitch finished by the end of the week, complete with cricket stumps. For more information on Partizan in the Park please click here and this will take you to there facebook page.


Next up on the list are the out buildings that I have. Now two of these have to be done for Partizan, them being the Hen House and the Potting Shed, but also I would like to have the Lych Gate done to for the church but that after all else has been done. These buildings as from a dolls house company called Petite Properties and they are in 1/48th scale, MDF and card laser cut. They have an amazing amount of detail on them and are relatively cheap.


Next on the paint table are some dogs and a bulldog that I too have to have finished for Partizan too. These doggies are from Warbases and mighty nice they are. The bulldog is the black blob at the moment having just basecoated it but I will be chuffed once I have decided would colour to paint it and the others too.

Now all that leaves me to say is to have a great weekend and week to come.

  1. Looking good buddy, regarding Petite Properties I've picked up a couple of the smaller "house" buildings and they also scale very nicely with 28mm figures.

    1. Welcome my colonial cousin Robert, VBCW is a 20th century version of Imagi Nation set in sleepy British countryside in 1938 called Very British Civil War. The premise is that King Edward VIII has not abdicated. marries Simpson, Baldwin resigned from PM and was replaced by Moseley and his Blackshirt Government. Arrayed against them but not necessarily unified are various factions ranging from The Peoples Armies, (Socialists), The Anglican League and the Kings own brother Albert and the Albertines plus many more. But think of it as a more civil war, were gentleman knock up elevenses or afternoon tea, where what tanks are about tend to be more Heath Robson than MBT, where most of the combatants are more likely to be the chaps from the local rather than regular trained soldiers and it is fun.

      Partizan in the Park is a wargames show, put on by the Newark Irregulars, twice a year but this year with some confusion over the booking of the place we are under canvas. Hope the weather is good
