I managed to paint again last night, nothing drastic, just chickens, I bought some from Warbases to add to the pigs and cattle I have to adorn my Dark Age village, not the best things to show off my painting skills but done and dusted in less than an hour. I shall be picking up a twelve man unit of Carolingian cavalry on Saturday, I am looking forward to painting them.
I apologise for the bad photo, but I am stuck near the window and it is blowing a bit of a storm outside and it is dark, so it is the best I could do. It's not that chickens are interesting anyway?
My son is having a lot of trouble with his new army, he primed his next unit and it turned out 'frosted' so they are going back into the Dettol to clean and start again, perhaps his spray is rubbish as that is twice now, so I'll have a look this weekend. He has also found that several of his Saxon Miniatures have very large metal pieces on them from the molds which must be dodgy and he is also finding that the definition of clothing and equipment on many is difficult to make out, I told him he should send them back, flash is one thing, chunks of metal are another.
Now to the good part, despite only managing the odd game here at home I can put up a 7x5 foot table and have a large 6x4 foot board in the back cupboard as well. This latter has been a bit of a pain in there as to get to anything else is difficult, something the missus reminds me of constantly. My son has jumped into War and Conquest in a big way and although he has no room in his house he has got the OK to use his works meeting room on a Sunday, the only problem is that the table is short and has round edges. We decided to buy a board to tag on the end and stretch it to 6x4, but the other night I found this beauty. I cannot get you a better photo as the site must be protected from copying.
That's another quick map project in the bag, this one was required tout suit and deals with the war in Somalia. I now have three on hold awaiting the authors approval and one still to draw but with no time limit, so an easy day ahead.
