Welcome to Who Is Theodore Us?
This blog will in no way attempt to answer this question but instead chronicle my time spent wargaming and painting.

Workbench 2.0

I typed that title and had a little moment of 90's Amiga nostalgia.

Anyway, the last two weekends have been pretty DIY centred, so not much painting going on. My Wednesday game was postponed, so no wargaming either! However, I have managed to revamp my workbench, which was very satisfying. 

I'm very fortunate to have an area in the house where I can paint and leave stuff out, but it does get very very cold in the winter. So last weekend I insulated the external wall, and this weekend I extended and raised my desk to give more workspace and hopefully less back-ache.

It doesn't look pretty, but it's functional and was made entirely from bits of wood I had lying around.

Now it's time to make it untidy by covering it in models in various states of completion!

Gondor and mutants

It's been a crazy few weeks with the start of term. I've not managed to play any games but am planning a game of SBG with Josh in the very near future. In preparation I've been finishing off my Gondorian Knights which have been sat on my painting desk for all of this year. I cannot stand painting horses so always find excuses to avoid cavalry. That's probably why my Rohan army is so underwhelming! Anyway, Faramir can now lead a detachment of 9 knights. The one behind Faramir (with the white banner on his lance) is a captain. All of my Minas Tirith captains have white tunics under their armour to make them easier to spot.

I recently won a lot of 100 heroclix on eBay, so the superhero project continues. Most recent completions are Bishop, Shadowcat, Psylocke and Prof X. Some of these are pretty poor sculpts, but you can't have enough X-men!

In other news I've been painting Gondorian cavalry and more heroclix. Pics to come soon.
