Help Needed!

Dearly beloved, loyal followers, dare I say friends?  We need your help!  All is well, in fact both James and I have been very busy producing some of our best work to date, but time is getting away from us and we simply haven't had the opportunity to share with you as much as we would have liked.  Many will also be aware that my presence around the many splendid weblogs that I enjoy so much has also dipped somewhat of late, but I am hoping you will forgive me this dereliction of duty as we plough every minute we can in to getting ready for 'Salute 2020'.

To that end, I was wondering if there were any good folk that might be willing to lend me their brushes?  I have 35 SS Troops that need to be completed before the show and far too many distractions demands on my time.  The miniatures are all primed and bases completed, but that is as far as it goes.  I am afraid that I have very little to offer other than my unending gratitude and credit for the work completed.  Sadly, given the time constraints, I imagine that this offer for internet immortality is only really open to UK based hobbyists? 

In these unsettling and uncertain times, James and I are totally committed to bringing the project to a conclusion and would really appreciate any offers of help.  If you think that this might be something that you would like to do, perhaps a couple of miniatures, half a dozen or even more then do please get in touch at...

My apologies for the unnecessarily cryptic address, (I should also point out that there are no spaces either!) but I am led to believe that this helps to reduce the likelihood of additional unwanted spam, something we are already plagued with.

Thank you,

Michael

    1. That's incredibly kind and good to know you are well. We have moved local, venturing through the castle to the Smugglers these days, but yes that would be lovely too.

    1. Thank you Barks and you are probably right, maybe a tad far away for this job. :)

  8. Hope it goes well Michael I am fearful of volunteering my skills which definately won’t match your own superlative standards. If those others volunteering , you already have some excellent painters on tap, their services can’t cover it contact me through my blog.👍

    1. Thank you Matt, really appreciate the offer. Hopefully have enough volunteers, but if we get in trouble you shall be first on my list! ;)

  9. I'd gladly volunteer, but you've seen my rather average (on a good day) painting skills. Knowing the bloiverse though, I'm pretty sure you'll have a lot of willing hands to help
    Good luck.

    1. Thank you so much Joe, I have been very fortunate and had a number of volunteers already sign up, but really appreciate the offer.

  10. Sadly my painting skills are way below what you need Michael, but I've a feeling all of you're great work will be in vain for this years event.

    1. I appreciate the offer Frank and nonsense about those painting skills! I am, however, starting to think you might be right about the show.
