In a moment of madness I signed up to Chris Stoesen's Secret Santa project. So I have bought, painted and based my "secret" and it will be soon winging it's way to the far reaches of New Hampshire, USA. I won't put up a picture until after Christmas as I want it to be a surprise for the unfortunate chap who got me as his Santa!
Talking of Santa, my lovely wife has bought me an early present so I am now the proud owner of a Flockbox. I have had a play about with it and it really does make a difference. The static grass stands up and looks like grass, as opposed to my usual mix of flock and flat grass. I am impressed and I will almost certainly end up rebasing lots of my based figures as it looks so much better. The first figures I have used it on are shown below, along with the last figures I based with my old system.
|British Highlander extras|
|1940 German Platoon|
I am now cleaning up some more Cowboy figures for Germany again, Lawmen and Desperados this time. There will be a slight delay on these though as I am off to London on Sunday to see the Tower of London poppies before they are taken away after the 11th of November.
Well that's it for now, I am off to do something less productive. Keep rolling those dice folks.
