Been a little slow really. Painting on pause as having finished the Spanish I wanted to set up the table and put them all out facing the Romans. That I have done, but have yet to roll some dice and put them in some sort of game like motion! Maybe soon…
Having had to move the paints aside to do this I’ve just been working on another couple of bits of terrain. I wanted to try some marshy watery type ground and as I’d done on some individual bases before I used gloss varnish for the water. However, here it was all a little deeper and the varnish a) took days to dry, and b) dried white! Since it had shrunk as well I will paint over the top and try the liquid water in a bottle I bought from the model shop. Hopefully, will do these tonight and post tomorrow.
The latest WI arrived and to be honest was not too impressed. The chunk of Osprey cut and paste at the beginning wasn’t a good start and the whole ‘theme’ approach to the mags is causing me problems as I have limited and blinkered interests so often most of the mag will not interest me. Still, I’ve subbed to a few more to go and hopefully things will improve.
The latest MW was acquired at Smiths and I read more of that. Liked the Gloucester Point article and that, along with Paul Marsh’s Germantown write up on the British Grenadier forums are making me hanker for the 18th Century again!
Picked up the first of the Osprey WW2 series on Poland and will probably get the next issue/s but not go the whole run.
And finally, I’ve joined the Society of Ancients! Had thought about this for a long time and seeing as they take Paypal and I had £20 sat in my account, I thought, what the hell! Will be interesting to see what Slingshot is like.
Anyway, that’s enough for tonight…
