Got home from work yesterday to a parcel from Leven Miniatures which was no surprise but what was inside the box was unknown. No I was not losing my mind, just one of those situations where you just don't know the score.
Let me explain,
Mike: I have some new buildings I want you to paint up.
Ian: Great, what are they?
Mike: I will send them to you with a few images of how a couple of them will need to be painted, feel free to paint the rest as you wish.
Ian: OK no problems, look forward to getting them.
Ian (Thinks to self): What buildings, I don't know what buildings.......... oh shinny....... What?........Buildings?.......More Shiney......rinse and repeat :-)
I guessed a few of them as I was aware what was on the horizon but others are utterly new to me. So you can expect all the buildings above and a few of the ones I want to get painted for the Quatre Bras board on the table over the next month or two. That's the 13 buildings you see here and maybe the same again of my own, yep 52 looks an easy ask for '14
All the buildings pictured above have either just been released or are due to be released in the coming months so these are going to be the first seen painted in most likely all cases.
Not that I stopped there, with some of my spare Christmas money I have bought some more of the excellent Tajima1 tufts as you can see from above. The bottom left are for the 28mm's I am working on now and the ones that will arrive early February, bottom right for the 6mm Napoleonic's whilst the others are mostly for 15mm though will find themselves up and down scale as needed.
So other than time I now have no excuse not to be flicking the brushes around. Lets see if I can get one of the new buildings painted up and blogged before the week is out.
