From MartinC - Mojo Refound - Figures Painted (110 points)

After nearly 2 weeks of no painting I re-found my mojo at the Albanich show last weekend. Specifically when I purchased these 1900 British Marines by Studio Miniatures. They are fab figures, beautifully sculpted and my idea of colonial marines. I'm really chuffed with the paint job in real life, in the photo they, as always, look really flat. I really like the colour of the tunics





I also finished this unit of Zulu war British, 24th Foot, should be enough to fight all the Zulus I painted




I have also beaten my target, which is nice.

Ahh, nothing brings a tear to my eye quicker than seeing a man re-united with his Painting Mojo.
It's great to see the Brits getting some reinforcements to face that impressive horde of Zulus you painted earlier in the Challenge, Martin. Well done young man and congratulations on hitting your 3200 point target!

    3. I think we may have seen the same film. I remember it being very, um, 'artistic'. Yes, that's it. ;)

    4. Don't be silly, Curt, we'll only call you a nurse if you're properly qualified.

  3. Sorry, Martin, but I'm not buying this whole loss of mojo thing, not while you languish in first place with your tears flowing down to soak us lesser mortals!
    ; )
    Terrific work, and a well-earned place at the top of the league!

    1. It lasted 10 days. I know they are crocodile tears but I've got loads of carthaginians to paint. Next year. Thanks mate, shame it's not a race.
