Dismounted Camel Corps...

...continued.



With the '3rd Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge' now well under way, I was fortunate to have been blessed with a couple of days of 'me time' to get my first points on the board; and so it was that I finally got around to completing the Dismounted Camel Corps Command Group, the first half of which was painted back in November!


More wonderfully dynamic sculpts from 'Perry Miniatures', with a  couple of burly sergeants to help keep the chaps in line.  I have to confess that I'm delighted to see the unit as a whole and would like to add some more dismounted troops to the collection, but alas with an embargo on additional hobby related expenditure set to last into the New Year, this will have to be the extent of the corps - for now anyway!


Thoughts now turn to family and friends, so all that remains for me to do is to wish one and all a very Happy Christmas.

  16. These are excellent looking figs, happy to take a look at them again. Good news is that the New Year is only eight days away so the embargo won't last forever

  28. Many news networks tease stories promising
    to give viewers "the latest information" and calling nearly
    any news that happened within the last hour "breaking news!" Stories constantly seem to be evolving, making viewers feel the necessity to be updated by the second, but often
    the facts of the story don't change - only the rumors.
