After much anticipation I received the first batch of Spartans that will soon become the Gorgon Studios Spartan Army. I decided to start with some skirmishers as there have been no painted versions of these models up on the Gorgon site yet. I'm hoping to finish the first pack of these slingers by next week sometime. These models are fantastic sculpts (and I'm not just saying that as a member of Gorgon Studios!) and much kudos to Steve Saleh for his excellent work on this range.

I also found time to finish the final model from the Ancient World range, Sycorax the Witch. I may have to use her in my Pict army if I ever find time to get working on that army again. See www.gorgon-studios.com for more information on these miniature lines.

One of the projects I was working on back in May/June was a painting article for Wargames Illustrated. The focus was on painting Gauls and featured the great plastic models made by Wargames Factory (http://www.wargamesfactory.com/). Well, the issue containing that article is now on sale so I thought I would share a couple of pics that I couldn't before. I also should note that my good pal Dave Pauwels has a fantastic Seige of Alesia Scenario in this issue as well. The information on the issue is below (in case you were interested).
