No, I'm not talking about the recent statements from North Korea. When I got home a few minutes ago, I had a letter from Parcelforce asking me to pay the import duty and VAT (plus their admin fee) so that they can release and deliver my package. As I have only placed one order from an overseas supplier recently, it could only be one thing - my order of Koreans from Old Glory 15s. I've just made the payment online and hopefully they will be waiting for me when I get home from work tomorrow.
So, that throws a little bit of a spanner in my plans. As I need to get my army painted and based for Campaign in early May, I'll probably have to spend this weekend sorting out the figures I'll need, prepping them and getting them primed. My Swiss may have to wait a little bit longer to get their flags done.
These should be a fun army to paint up and as they will be (mostly) "uniform" relatively quick and easy to do.
So, what can you expect to see on the blog over the coming weeks?
Some progress on the Hasslefree figures for Donogh
Lots of colourful cavalry
Lots of white and black uniformed infantry
some pretty dull looking peasants
As the infantry are mostly medium foot, with a few lights, I'm considering painting them on their final bases just to save a bit of time. It will also allow me to take them into work so that I can do a little bit during my lunchbreak.
