I had hoped that I would take part in 'Forgotten Heroes' this month, but it would appear that my best laid plans have come a little unstuck at present. I had an idea ready to go and with the help of Jez, of 'Carrion Crow's Buffet', had even sourced a couple of likely miniatures ready for conversion. It may well be that I enter something before the end of the month, but just for the time being, I have a couple of other items that are demanding my attention.
'Wargames Terrain Workshop'. Now before I go any further, I need to stress that these miniatures are custom sculpts, produced for Dave's own personal amusement and are not commercially available due to licensing restrictions. Apparently during an email exchange, I sounded a little down and the next thing I knew an amazing assortment of Star Wars inspired miniatures had hit the doormat of Awdry Towers. I hope to show more of the denizens of Jabba's palace in a future post, but instantly fell upon the droids to paint first, seeing that they fitted into my current theme.
So with two more droids added to the collection, a droid hunt across the Tatooine sands is looking like a real possibility as a scenario. I just need to thank Dave again for his hugely generous gift and can confirm that it most definitely brought a smile to my face.
