Updates

Two new graduates in the family-
and their undergraduate sister on the right...
My daughters were most generous for Father's Day-
Including this utterly  splendid book-
which was new to me completely.

Northish Westish 1885ish

Last summer my eldest and I painted some 54mm old Britains figures. She added detail and faces on them for me. Of late I have fancied giving them an opponent in the form of Metis and Indians- a vague 1885 North West Rebellion vibe if you like. With this in mind I have undercoated some Armies in Plastic Boers as a first step.Can anyone suggestion plastic Indian figures to use alongside them?

If H G Wells had known breakfast biscuits, or a work in progress...

Currently working on these buildings here pictured with some 40mm Bavarians. Idea came to me whilst recycling and I hastily saved the packaging!  I will work more on them at the weekend.

Today I have been enjoying the garden-
and the pea or bean structures built today add height-

Carronade, Falkirk

A most enjoyable day at the show. I was tempted by the Warbases Roman buildings but resisted just.Met some folk and enjoyed seeing the games especially a division level acw game, a 28mm WW2 game set on an imaginary Greek island and a 42 mm SCW game with a slogan drenched train. However, for me the star of the show was the Westerhope chaps 40mm game complete  with visual effects-
Great game and friendly to talk to too ,what more could one ask!
Got the book below for a fiver and was delighted-
