Everything in this post then has been the result of things I've done in April (no fooling).
|Cartington (2nd left) and his new colleagues|
|Still didn't find the source (or outlet) of the mighty Brown river!|
The map shows the route and would have enabled you to follow his last adventure a bit better (possibly, maybe, who knows?)
|Outside being varnished|
The Leader figures are all based on the same sculpt, 'bloke pointing' and are easily spotted.
Their flags are a random assortment, but including some blue ones, taken from the same source as the Fuzzies' flags i.e. Warflag.
|"Get back in the box!"|
I did wonder why I had so few guns for my Sudan and came across these, which in addition to the two other field pieces, would bring my artillery up to a reasonable level.
|Guns (bit obvious really)|
|The above join these two, the right-hand one found amongst my Indian mutiny figures|
It had the long lost artillery that I'd wondered about and more besides.
They were obviously bought for my Boxers, but are equally at home in the Sudan.
|Machine guns and a cannon!|
|Casualties, nine Boxers and two Sailors - how strange!|
|And this bloke ("Hello Sailor" ?)|
|Current state of paint tray (Obligatory boring picture)|
My paint tray looks like the picture on the left and is in need of repair...
|Current state of my paint 'tray' (piece of wood)|
I gathered together as many of my boxes, barrels and other stuff that I've been accumulating over the last few years and decided to paint them up, There are items from Ainsty, Col. Bill's, some home made and 3D cast things amongst the various bits and pieces.
Whilst I may not have done anything this last week, I still have another adventure to write about, but next week I'll probably be showing some new terrain I made in April as the adventure writeup, photo editing etc. is far more time consuming.
After a week where I lost the Interweb thing for most of it, it's good to be able to post comments on the various blogs I follow ( I think I'm finally caught up), as currently it's the only real social activity I have hobby-wise. I think I was having some form of withdrawal (and maybe it accounts for any lack of hobby progress)
I also noticed that ALDI have similar green mats in store at the same price (£6.99) as the Lidl ones and appear almost identical, the link should take you straight to it.
So that's it then for another week, I hope you've found something of interest here and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
