I actually have something finished to show you. I started these a couple of months back, but kept faffing around and only finished them yesterday.
Not much, but these BBQs will be jump off point markers for my Aussies. I'm still debating whether to paint up some wire mesh to put on top (maybe with a couple of "shrimps").
I also got some priming done the other day:
|Warlord Games Papuan section|
|Warlord Games M3 Stuart|
|Warlord Games Aussie Matilda II|
The Matilda was a bit of a pig to assemble and needed a fair amount of gap filling with green stuff. I think the plan will be to get the hulls done this weekend with the airbrush and then do the detailing next week.
OK, so now the news (which explains why things were rather hectic for the last 2-3 weeks). I am no longer a wage slave! You may recall that my father died last year. A few months ago, his estate paid out and my share looks to be enough for me to take at least a few years away from the daily grind of employment, particularly if I move away from London to somewhere that housing is cheaper. In a few years time I will reassess and decide if I need to go back to work again.
My leaving do was actually before Colours, a couple of weeks before I finished work. I got some very nice gifts:
There were also some chocolates (consumed by my team within a week!) and £50 of gift vouchers for Dark Sphere (a FLGS in London). I was pleasantly surprised by the Zhukov memoirs. I wasn't surprised about the Strontium Dog starter set - they had asked if there was anything for gaming that they should look into buying and I suggested that.
In the meantime, I'll be resting up and enjoying myself for a while. Of course, it does mean that I should be able to churn out a huge amount of painted figures during AHPC9 this winter!
