Thursday, toys and TMS
Spent much of Thursday morning painting this Lamming retinue and Baron whist enjoying Test Match Special on the wireless.
Sounds like an enjoyable day....although I woukd be happy to forego the cricket!ReplyDelete
Cricket was the best bit :)Delete
A fine day out for the Nutwood Boy Scouts ...ReplyDelete
Milling about waiting for an adventure…Delete
Nice. Is that Rupert, the bear?ReplyDelete
It is, his chums are undercoated and awaiting painting…Delete
Always partial to Lamming figures, as well as Rupert.ReplyDelete
Win ,win situation then!Delete
Oh, looking very nice indeed, Alan. I've only got as far as one test figure. Great to paint though; no tartan and no lace.ReplyDelete
It will be a relief to move out of the lace/ tartan wars cave into the glorious light of the Middle Ages as they ought to have been. Looking forward to seeing the test figure.Delete
Lamming is a name from the past, have you had them long? Are you unusual as a cricket fan in Scotland, and do you support 'anyone but England' like the football fans do? :)ReplyDelete
Lamming back in production-ReplyDelete
I started watching cricket back in the John Player League days when it was on tv all Sunday afternoon. Support England , always have done, love TMS including cakes and fun, have a soft spot for Scotland as one of my colleagues in teaching had a son who played for them back in the day.
Interesting about Lamming, they are charming and rather tempting! I have a very old 'Battle' mag with a Bill Lamming interview, but he stopped before I had money for metal!Delete
Cricket on TV on Sundays ( and sponsored by cigarettes) - it was a very different world..
