I've been trying to work through my pile of existing projects and today I finally got round to painting the figures from The Fury of Dracula boardgame. I got this game in a trade maybe two years ago? I keep meaning to run it at the club at Hallowe'en. Maybe early October 2021?

I'm working my way through the box of 6mm Baccus ancients I bought before Xmas. Today I finished out what I think are 54 Sarmatian unarmored cavalry.
Up next: Very hard to say. Maybe more 6mm?

Another hodge-lodge this week. I started off finishing the basing on an old WEG Star Wars figure (Hammerhead?) and a Clix Talosian (who vigorously popped off the clicky-base earlier this year and then disappeared into the mess of my painting table).
While retrieving the Talosian, I also found an old base of War of 1812 Canadian militia that must have fallen off the table two years ago when I was rebasing. So I popped them off the multi-figure base and put them on washers to match the rest. I see one of them also needs his trousers touched up.
Up next: No idea. Maybe more 6mm?

Back before Xmas, I picked up a bunch of Baccus 6mm figures that a local guy was looking to get rid of. As these things often go, turns out he's a friend of an old acquaintance in BC and bought them from another acquaintance in NF.
I mostly bought these on a lark because I was running low on stuff to paint and hadn't done any 6mm painting in close to 10 years (and I thought another lockdown was looming). Turns out, my eyes are way crappier than they were back in the day! The result, though is good enough for me.
I based these on one-inch squares. Most rule sets can be played in base-widths these days. And, looking at Bruce's recents efforts, two small bases means you can represent (left to right below), line, column or square/entrenched.
I'd forgotten how fast 6mm can go. There are 192 figures in these 16 bases and they only took a few hours to paint. I have a fair number of Romans and then some hairys to get to over the next few months.
