Oh, you want the result of the game? It was a rather unsurprising 22:3 loss for my Danes against Andy's Swedes. I might have lost by a little less if it hadn't been for some even more appalling dice than usual combined with a couple of silly decisions I made late in the game. I did take my camera, but forgot about it until halfway through the game, at which point there was no point taking pics.
J Peasmold Waste Reprocessing Ship
I'd been wondering for a while where Mr Tuffley had got the name for this spaceship from and finally thought to use my Google-Fu. Followers of a certain age may well have got the reference, but for those younger souls I can reveal it was a character voiced by the late, great Kenneth Williams in "Round the Horne". J Peasemold Gruntfuttock was a dirty old man. Here is a classic moment:
Anyway, this ship was my latest entry in the Challenge. I got 15 points for it, which gave me the win in my race against Ian.
I went with basecoats followed by a dirty grey wash, which has given it a rather nice grungy look - quite suitable for a ship of this type I think.
"In space, nobody can smell your cargo. However, we'll still ask you to stay 10AU back from the rest of the ships, just in case"
I painted this up to give me a break between painting batches of pirates.
Speaking of pirates, I've managed to do a bit of work on them today. They've all had their hair painted and I'm partway through the third colours - mostly coats and headscarves. At this point, it's a bit quicker as less figures need the colours.
