What's on the modelling table today?

I've not made a lot of progress this week due to time constraints, but I did manage to clean up and prepare for painting the first batch of 20/25mm ancient figures.  These are the HAT Roman Auxiliary Infantry and Parthian Light Cavalry sets, together with a few Minifigs Roman Cavalry.  I'm hoping to get them all covered with PVA (the plastics) and primer (the metal figures) later today.  More about the classical warfare project in a future post.
The usual mess on the tabletop. 
The HAT figures after cleaning up,  washing, assembly and fixing to temporary bases for painting.

And finally - a recent deal with Steve T involving some Airsoft gear resulted in the arrival of this box of 20mm toys.  More on this later, when I've had time to assess the contents, but I offer the photo above mainly to generate jealousy - especially among my NZ readers.  Sorry Paul.

Enjoy the Parthians, mine had a better game under Hail Caesar than they did under WRG 6th

Thanks Will. The Parthians will be a for me - with 6th Edn I only remember using Greek, Successor and Persian armies. And Vikings, but the less said about them the better...

Cor Blimey!! You are quite correct about the jealously tag.

It looks a lovely haul and I think you have your work cut out with all the recent in-comings I see you posting.

Lucky sod. I could not even enlarge the pic to take a good stock take.

Rifles are for fighting, guns are for fun!

. So my evil plan worked. There do seem to have been rather a lot of arrivals lately, but at least I managed a bit of painting over the weekend. Oh, and I'll post more pics of the WW2 haul to save your eyesight. .....
