Once again, Saturday is upon us (yes I know it's Sunday, but I stared this yesterday- honest!) and I've managed to take a quick photograph of what is currently on the table this week - reassuringly little! I say reassuringly, as in the concluding hours of the '4th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge', utter chaos seemed to ensue, with various units crashing onto the painting table and then just sitting there, as if trapped in some invisible quagmire, taunting me with regards to my lack of progress.
|The days before the end of the Challenge.|
Some of those units have been finally completed, but some have been returned to barracks, perhaps not to be seen again until next year. Instead, I felt the need for a change and have recently been inspired by the posts of 'the Legatus' and 'Terry Silverthorn's' that have showcased their recent work with 'In Her Majesty's Name' (IHMN). I bought heavily into IHMN about this time last year, picking up a bucket load of miniatures at 'Salute 2013' and promptly did nothing with them! I've decided to dig out some of these long forgotten members of the lead pile and give them a go; first up, the The Scotland Yard Company.
In other news, I have caved in and backed the 'Across the Dead Earth' kickstarter. My will power wasn't helped by reading Simon's blog and my recent dalliance into the world of post apocalyptic fiction - still it looks like fun and as I type this there are only a few hours to go; £50 gets you 17 metal miniatures plus the softback rulebook!
