Oh Shiny, oh Shit!

Not only did I get home to be greeted by three packages but I got to open them early having been shall we say let go. So on the bright side I now have a bit extra time to paint some figures, maybe even catch Dave up? OK pure fantasy that last part so lets move along.

First up keeping with the alphabetical theme of yesterday.....

Four packs of Essex Miniatures for the Roman Army, these have arrived to possibly included in the batch I am prepping at the moment.

Anyone recognise this building? hint, it's far Project Waterloo and will be released by Leven Miniatures at a future date. I have two to paint up so will get this cleaned up at the same time I do all the others ones I picked up at York.

Tajima 1 Miniatures also arrived (always a fast service from these guys). these are the smallest tuft size they do. Until recently the only colour available was a dark green. The ones on the left are called moss and will fit best with the basing I do. The light green may be a little too light but will still see some action.

So not a bad day at all hobby wise, now I need to make use of the extra time before I hopefully get back into work.

  13. Tough luck on the job front, Ian. This would be a perfect time to concentrate on the hobby if only a job hunt did not interfere.

    Good hunting to you!

  16. Thanks for all the nice comments, finally got back behind a brush this evening. Did not really fancy it yesterday but did have a longish prep session so I did get some things done yesterday. Today was all taken up right up to late afternoon so this evening was the earliest I could get behind a brush. Got a good start on the Roman cavalry though

    Ian
