Now for something out of left field,..

Hi All
Now these pictures probably don't really belong on this Blog, but "Hey", there are some nice miniatures here.
First is Saint George and his epic struggle with the Dragon. I painted this model about 5 years ago I think. I bothed the Saint's eyes, but other than that he's OK I guess.

ABOVE: Raechel's Girls!
Next are some photos of some SHADOWFORGE Manga Girls my beautiful wife Raechel painted. What's so annoying is she picked up a brush about 6 years ago and knocked these out straight away. There she is, never painted before and she paints these.
I've been painting for about 33 years and I still can't paint this good.
Makes me want to punch her,...

A figure she call's "RAECHEL" ('cause she look a little like her)
Below is a Figure I painted whilst Raechel was a Staff Cadet.
Every now and then Raech paints up a few miniatures for me. Normally 'character' or 'Command' miniatures.
Bless her,...

The Staff Cadet gets my vote. Consider yourself lucky Scott - the only time my wife would pick up a paintbrush or a figure would be to throw 'em somewhere!

Ditto to what Doc said, although I must say you're a brave man publicly voicing a desire to punch your wife! She must be very forgiving, or doesn't read your blog!

Hi Guys
Yes, I am lucky that Raech will paint and tolerate my miniatures all over the house.
Raech is very forgiving, but she also knows her place,..
You can see the real Raechel at my other blog:
Cheers and Merry Christmas!

Crikey! Lucky man Scotty! Wish I could get mine that interested (mmm, second thoughts - maybe not! I enjoy the odd game with the lads in Doug's war rooms).

Merry Christmas to you and yours and roll 'em high in the New Year - unless low is better!

your wife paints very well lucky man love the other figures as well nd the guns below look great awesome job. Oh don't punch her she might repaint your favourite minatures pink

Hi Guys.
Seriously, I'd never punch her, (well, not in the face anyway; it's far to pretty).
All jokes aside, she's brilliant, putting up with my minis all over the house AND doing some painting from time to time. She's a brilliant Mum also.
I'm blessed!
