Well tonight is 'Twelfth Night' and so, as to avoid more bad luck than is strictly necessary, the Christmas Banner has had to come down; sad really as I rather enjoyed the effect. Still with Colonel Burnaby rightly restored and unmolested it seemed only right and proper to add a splash of colour to the place.
Some might remember that this little side project started way back in July with 'A Very Thin Red Line!' but nothing more has happened apart from a dusting of undercoat. Still with the chimes of the New Year still ringing in my ears there is a sense of urgency around 'Awdry Towers' which sees me revisiting long forgotten ideas in a bid to bring then to some sort of conclusion. All very commendable you might think but I know only too well that in a matter of months, if not weeks, I will find myself distracted yet again and these burly Scotsmen will be destined to gather more dust for another six months!
As before Great War Miniatures' Crimean range painted up to represent the 93rd Highlanders who repelled the charge of the Russian cavalry at Balaclava.
