Paint Table Saturday

Another paint table Saturday and I actually managed to get a couple of hours done this morning and another couple of hours done this afternoon.  I think that's about as much as I can manage in a day without getting a headache (the peril of enamels!).  Halfway through the day I had to do some taxi stuff for Guy and go with the Old Bat to Kingston look at a loo seat she is getting for the extension bathroom.  £356 for a loo seat!  It's just white too.  Not even malachite!   At least I picked up the July issues of Wargames Illustrated and Miniature Wargames in Smiths.  I tried to find Playboy as Miss July is from Surrey!  No luck though, I'll have to get it in London.

Anyway, this is the paint table after today's painting session.  There is nothing really close to completion so I suspect I am not going to add anything to my monthly total in the rest of June.  So, a little bit more on my Spartans, Carolingian general, pirate girl and next Egyptian slave girl (I might be able to finish her tomorrow) and rather more work on the next batch of Afghans.  

Last weekend I finished another half dozen Afghans.  These really are starting to move along quite well now and I have now finished ten with another ten well under way.  I think I still have a pack or two to base.  I'm using a simple palette of white, greys and tans for them and  they are very easy to paint.  I should be able to get a few more hours done on them tomorrow.
