2016 - Happy New Year

I wonder what's on the other dice faces
Nothing much this week as I've taken a complete break from anything hobby  related over the holidays save for to make some very tentative plans for my intentions over the next year.







First though, on the left,  here's a photograph of all my hobby-related Xmas goodies.
Yes, it's a hobby-knife, not quite the box of scalpel blades that I would have liked, but the handle on this particular knife is a lot thicker than the ones I've used in the past, which will aid me greatly. I did make a lot of what I refer to as 'box buildings' in 2015 ( they have no interiors) and went through a lot of both scalpels and A1 sheets of foam-board. Luckily my stock of A1 foam-board has also been replenished with another ten sheets and I intend to make more buildings this year.
On the scratch-building front, I have three models I wish to make. The first I've been planning for a long time and will use a lot of the bits and pieces I've been retaining  for several years now to use for it. The second is a standard card building, but will be all my own work, but based on a TV show.. The third build is for an idea I've had that I've never seen elsewhere and is also still in the planning stage.
Having lost a friend last year whom I thought would be a  regular opponent in my Zombie games, it's been quite a struggle to find new opponents, but I'm still hoping to play a few games too this year and maybe attend one or two local shows again.
My other project (Gladiators) is nearing completion and consequently posts on my other blog will be reined in somewhat.

That's it for this week other than to thank you all for your kind comments or for just dropping by and to all have a happy and prosperous New Year.
