Into the depths
Yesterday the kitchen was finished and some work was started in the garden room.As part of the moving process I began to tackle the LEAD MOUNTAIN.
Here it is.Vauban fortification,samurai house and loads more emerged from the boxes.I began to sort the unpainted mountain into appropriate piles.The job has begun but will take some time.So far I have not come across my Mythical Earth Elven King ( although I did find a yellow painted hobbit circa 1976) or some treasures from my youth which I now feel for certain have gone.For example my 40mm viking and roman Elastolins and my father's Dinky tanks AA gun etc.They have been lost/mislaid along the way. I did find some interesting figures-
I photographer them this morning.A old Garrison (?) peasant with scythe who will look great painted, a Citadel (?) knight who has had a kite shield glued on years ago and who looks brave with a splendid moustache, a bard (Ral Partha?) who is a lovely medieval figure complete with harp and finally an enchantress (?) from Ral Partha (?) who should paint up well too. IF you know better as ro the fantasy figures origins please let me know. They will be useful in some games of Song of Blades and Heroes I think...
