Medieval Russian Flag

At the end of July I posted this command element but with a different flag. At the time I was attempting to represent a generic religious icon. On reflection it didn't quite work. So I switched it for this one:

I have also reset my camera and have thankfully ended up with decent shots of the element without a lot of post processing.

Well would you believe it!  The tufts I ordered arrived this morning so here are the final set of photos of my first ever American Civil War unit in all their glory:

15 mm ACW Confederate Infantry (Pre-Basing)

I don't normally do work in progress posts; partly because I find photographing miniatures a right royal pain in the bum.  This time I'm going to make an exception to share this newly painted unit before I base it whilst trying a black background for my photography:

Hobby Overkill

This morning I was perusing the list of new posts on the Lead Adventure Forum when a post piqued my interest; not because of the specific content but because of the behaviour it exemplified.

It started with a simple plea for help and advice.  These often start with "how do you ..."  or "have you had a problem with ..." or some such.  The classic subjects are glue, primer, varnish, and ground work.  We've all seen them and been amazed by the sheer breadth of options (opinions?) that resulted.

True to form what followed this particular request was a series of posts, including one from me, which each provided a sure fire recipe to address the problem.  All of them different; many of them overly convoluted and complex.  It was the latter recipes that set me thinking.
