AHPC X Day 03 - Second Submission

My second submission is up now: link

I was meant to be heading down to Sussex today for Christmas, but I've been struck down with a D&V bug. Brilliant timing, thanks whoever passed it on to me. As a result, I will be staying in London on my lonesome, but it does mean that I will be able to do some painting. I got these chaps primed this morning, then added basing gunk:

They will be for my "Millsy's Millpond" entry.

And I have made a start on these chaps:

I hope to get these and two regiments of converged grenadiers finished before the 30th, so that they will be available for a big game at the club.


  1. Sorry to hear you will be spending the holidays on your own Tamsin, but wish you as Merry of a Christmas as you can have.
    Great second submission, and lots more goodies ready in the wings as well

  2. Well done on protecting yourself and the population by staying out of circulation till you are bug free. Sorry you will have to be by yourself this Christmas, but happy painting!

  3. They look great, I'm still not sure on my plan to get around the Island after my next step.
    Sorry to hear you're sick, hope you have a fab festive season anyway.

  4. So sorry to hear that you have been laid low Tamsin.

  5. Get well soon, we are recovering from heavy colds ourselves and hope to at least look germ free by tomorrow :-)

    We know a couple of people who have been hit by the various lurgy's going around and will be out of circulation for Christmas and one of the toddlers in the family was diagnosed with tonsillitis yesterday.

    My local shops are full of handwashes and hankies - yet you never see these things used in public! what's that about!

    Have a good painting session anyway :-)

  6. Hope you're soon feeling better!
    Well done with those minis :o)

  7. @ Dave Stone - thanks! :)

    @ Herkybird - cheers! :)

    @ Paul SS - thanks! I'm not 100% certain of my plan either - I foresee lots of trips in Lady Sarah's Balloon :)

    @ Michael A - cheers! :)

    @ Norm - thanks! It's not the first time I've been ill at Christmas and had to spend it on my own, so I know the routine :)

    @ Matt - cheers! :)

  8. Hi Tamsin,
    Please accept my most sincere wishes for you having a Merry Christmas despite your illness. Get well soon and remember that it is not when you are with loved ones but the fact that you are with them at some point that counts.

  9. Hope you recover soon Tamsin. Have a great Christmas break
