Kilts in Space

Now I have been painting a fair amount over the last few days, but I can't post pictures of what I'm painting as there gifts. However I wanted to paint something a bit technical this afternoon, so having found this kit bashed figure lying in my painting pot, I decided to paint some tartan trousers.

They were quite enjoyable to paint, and I like how they turned out. I'm not sure what colours I'll paint the rest of the figure, maybe some plain canvas colours.

I'm alive!

I consider this model (and post) a something is better than nothing situation. I am now settled into the new house in Scotland, and am into the swing of working from home full time (yay) However as it stands I don't have anywhere to permanently setup a painting area. But we are going to convert the loft space in to a man cave/studio for me and the wife to share. So until that's done I'm not sure how much painting I will get done.

I'm also feeling myself drawn back to Gamesworkshop again (don't ask me why I don't know) and I've sort of paused my 20mm WW2 project until I'm in the man cave and can "paint properly" again. Until then I might just do silly little projects.

On the upside I bought myself a Rover 75 (the one that looks like a jag) with a 2.5 V6 engine which is stupidly quick, makes my trips around the Scottish country side much fun, and overtaking a breeze!
