I'm back! Again! Is there anybody still out there?

Hi folks,

No nice pics for the moment as I've been very busy with both my parents being very ill. I don't think I've picked up a brush in a few years!! i'm now sorting a new studio which sounds simple right? not so! you should know better as a wargamer/miniature collector!! We hoard, not just miniatures and paints but just stuff. Yeah, stuff. The type of thing where you end up raiding the local Lidl stores surroundings because they have just the right sort of wooden chip to make excellent realistic rocks!

Anyway, I'm currently sorting all of the studio out- which includes putting miniatures back in the correct boxes (a very disheartening task) and sorting out all of the other gumph.

This is really a long winded way of saying that I have returned to the hobby and soon will be painting again so watch this space. That is, if people still tend to gander at Blogs?

Cheers.

FOR SALE: Expertly Painted Foundry Afghans & Artizan Second Afghan War Brits

HI,

It breaks my heart a wee bit but it's time to put these mini's on the market. They are painted to the highest of standards, the Afghans having made it to the Finals table at Salute 2011.

I'm asking [b]£15 per mini[/b], which is cheap considering the standard and the hours put in.

That would be £120 for the eight Afghans.

And £165 for the Artizan Brits (I've thrown in the dog for free!)

If you're interested please PM me or contact me at:

darrell.hindley@googlemail.com

Buyer pays Postage.

Payment via Paypal- as a gift if you feel so inclined. It took a lot of work to get the mini's to the standard I was happy with and they are worth every penny IMHO)

AFGHANS:









SECOND AFGHAN WAR BRITS:















Thanks for taking a look,

Cheers,
Darrell.

Royal Armouries Beta Test Catalogue

So, if you're interested in the plethora arms and armour held by the Royal Armouries from throughout most of history then you should look HERE!

Needless to say that the collection is substantial and a must see for any wargamer interested in arms and armour. I've been a few times to the RA in Leeds and never tired of looking at the collection.


Bye for now.

New Perry Miniatures Cape Wars!!

Ordered!

I've been looking forward to this range and Mike Snook, doyen of all thinks Victorian Warfare, being released since someone who will remain nameless gave me the news at a certain UK show. I was asked to keep quiet which of course I did.









Bye for now.
