This is the second part of a blog started a few years ago. The reason for starting afresh is that I have been filling posts on the blog section of my website and folks are having a great deal of difficulty in picking up any new posts as the Blog was imported to my website- or something like that.
Anyway, I hope that you all enjoy my rantings and ravings :O)
On Sunday I got back from a great weekend at HWHQ and the WHW campaign weekend. It was Age of Arthur all the way for me. special thanks to Jim Sweeney for lending me an army [as mine wasn't finished- yep I know, the shame ;o)] , also to James morris and Steve Jones for running a seemless campaign that was packed with laughs and last but not least all my oponents (Dave, Jack, Ivre, James, and all the skirmishers!) who playey within the true spirit of the game and provided a lot of entertainment.
I'm not going to prattle on so I'm here's a few pics that I have selected for your perusal:
There are many more pics and if you have a mind to you can see them all here on the SADWAB Forum:
OK, I've got to admit that on the completion of the British Kingdoms army I am now a defeated man. Sad but true. I just couldn't bring myself round to hurrying them as it wouldn't have done the models justice and I really want to have this army looking prim and proper.
Watch out on a website near you for the net result of the wager I had with Soapy. Boy, I can feel the humiliation building now ;o) Sad but true.........
For those not in the know I'm off to Notts this weekend for some fun and frollics of the WAB variety. Should be a great weekend, they always are. It's like X-mas coming twice a year for me! Sad but true........
Pics of Italo-Normans and the latest British kingdoms stuff to folllow on from when I get back to sunny Edinburgh.
Just a very quick update to apologise for the lack of pics. Basically I'm under duress trying to keep the 10 mini's a day routine going. I'm already behind, though I did leave a little extra time at the end of the 'period' for this very reason. Wish me luck or Soapy's going to break my heart, or something.
Here's a few mini's that I banged out today. Apologies for the photo quality but I couldn't find my tripod so I had to pile up a few old boxes! Basically everything has three highlights except the tunics (which commanded four) and the slings which have a base colour and a wash (with bonus stone added in two highlights). These little critters will be varnished with a coat of GW Gloss and then given the customary coat pf Testors Dullcote.
Watch this space for 10 more tomorrow......... that one is for the doubters ;o)
