I have been a tad up and down of late and have advanced my projects very little. I have been enjoying BBC tv's "Parade's End" on dvd and have kept faith with "The Last Kingdom" on tv too.I have enjoyed reading some model railway  magazines too. I had great fun  gluing and sticking with GW Empire bits and other odds and ends to begin to create a Frostgrave warband-
Absorbing and distracting inspite of prising superglued fingers apart...


  1. Frostgrave warband looks promising. Can't get on with The Last Kingdom, but finding Vikings quite absorbing (if bloody).

  2. Chin up Alan- I to have days that drift by without achieving much- then all of a sudden ( like a magic wand) - it all comes together and I'm on my way. Best Wishes. KEV.

  3. Tradgardmastare,

    It is hardly surprising that you are a bit up and down at the moment, and the fact that you are at least trying to do something shows great fortitude on your part. Keep trying, and if I can mis-quote the line from FIELD OF DREAMS, 'keep trying, and it will come'.

    All the best,


  4. Its a cliche but true, these things take time. Puttering a bit at anything is a good distraction, lots of people seem to be enjoying Frostgrave.

  5. Speaking without much direct experience, I do agree with Bob and Ross and Kev. My own efforts in the hobby realm are kind of meagre these days (but more due to being so busy with work I don't feel like doing much when I'm home after work). But pottering around, doing a little here and there, is fine.
