Season end, work bench and a few thoughts.

Well as we draw closer to Christmas I guess this may be the last post of the year? Certainly not as many for the last few months as I'd hoped but that's what happens when real life gets in the way!!!!

First up the work bench -

I've managed to base the units that were on the bench ( pics on the Crann Tara blog) and as a result of talking to a member of the AMG forum I've ended up doing conversions/sculpts for the Compagnes Franches de la Marine for the Sugar Island campaign - so far 8 figures are under way. In addition I've also got some metal back from Griffin some of these were my Naval Landing party which use the Fife and Drum labourers as the dolly, the first five are undercoated. In all I aim to do about 16 different figures and I'm hoping Jim and I can come to an agreement re their possible availability.

As I'm on my own New Years day I aim to treat myself to a solo game and hope to do the long delayed naval game I'd promised myself some weeks back.
The results will appear on here.

So can I wish you all a Merry Christmas and trust you will all have an enjoyable festive holiday

Where does the time go?

So what happened since the 18th November? Blown if I know, just go away for a few minutes, paint a few figures go to a wargames show and over two weeks has gone!!!!

I didn't get the naval game done I'm afraid so I will be trying again soon! I attended the Battleground show on the 26th November with me stand and a Christmas clearout which did very well.
Couple of games I liked were a 10mm game of Ramillies and a WWI game.

There were lots of other games that were good I just didn't get time to take the pics. The show kept reasonably busy until closing and Leon at Pendraken miniatures has done a first class job in promoting this show.

The bench currently looks like-
The Le Marck regiment awaiting earth grass and standards. Poor Spartacus' troops are pushed to the rear awaiting completion.

Hopefully some hobby time on the run up to Christmas and the New Year.
