Memories are made of this

Whilst sorting through boxes and folders I found these publications at the princely sum of 0.40p and 0.50 it's an indication of how old they are but at the same time I remember buying these and using them for all sorts of ideas in my early days. Now whilst Mr. Taylor avoids the use of dice wherever possible I'm tempted to set the table up just for old times sake.
 I also saw this on one of the facebook forums again great memories of the pamphlets! that used to be produced with all us budding artists trying to achieve the Gilder effect!!
From a time when things were a lot simpler and some ways the lack of choice made for a more contented hobby.
No pictures of the workbench this week, I've based a couple of units up which are on my Crann Tara blog but painting has been sorely limited this week. Hoping for some progress this week

Ships Ahoy

Whilst I furiously try to clear some pieces off the workbench (update this Thursday) I waas fortunate to receive some more ships from Julian at Model J Ships ( http://modeljship.com/en/ )
The Spanish Argonuata (80 guns), San Agustin (74 guns) and the Saint Sabina (34 guns) make their appearance.
Almost half of the 24 ships required are now complete and the two Spanish 112's are now on their way for completion.
